Um, really? Is this person being intentionally naive? Willfully ignorant? Or did she forget to consider the larger picture before painting all Chinese adoptees with a poetic yet erroneously broad brush? As a fellow Asian adoptee I would love to join hands with her and sing Kumbaya as we bathe and bask ourselves in adoptee love… but I happen to be interested in news stories about adoptees. Like this one:
Inside a Mount Juliet home, law enforcement say 4-year-old Kairissa Mark was severely beaten and abused from head to toe by her adoptive mother, Lebanon pediatrician Deborah Mark.
Deborah Mark and her husband, Steven Mark, had adopted Kairissa from China in April, less than four months before police found their new daughter dead.
Deborah and Steven Mark now face charges in the child’s death…
And Kairissa is not the only Chinese adoptee to be killed by her Forever Family; for a longer list, see this link and scroll down to the “China” section. These are NOT isolated incidents, and this is NOT Fate. I’m glad that the author of the One World post seems to have had a perfect life so far, but how ridiculously naive to think that everyone has.
What kind of “perfect life” is it to die from massive brain injuries after being thrown against a wall at the age of four, by the very people who were entrusted to care for you and be your “Forever” Family?
What kind of Fate is that?
