A GOOD adoption story


Well, yesterday I posted about a BAD adoption story (the poor little seven-year-old boy from Russia who got sent back by himself from the US on a plane with a note). Tonight I am feeling uplifted after (finally) seeing the Blind Side and thought I would balance out yesterday's contribution with something positive. Now here is a true and amazing story of Michael Oher who was adopted by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy at sevenTEEN years old, transracially, and (as Hollywood tells it) rocked his way into the major leagues through the power of love (and talent of his own). I would like to believe that that is just the way that it happened!
Here is to all of those special people who make it work!

Thanks for hopping by through the blog party -- it's nice to "see" you again too.

Looking forward to summer when I'll have more time to catch up on reading blogs and writing a bit!

Can't wait to see Blind Side!

Take Care -- Dee

After I saw that poor little guy's story on the new, I felt really bad. I believe power of love.

I loved the Blind Side - very worthwhile movie. I couldn't believe that the dad was played by Tim McGraw. I didn't recognize him at all!

I don't know the details about the little boy. I did see this movie last week and enjoyed it. It is such a great story. Makes me happy there are people like that out there.
