Awwww. I'm glad she's doing well.

Those of you who read my posts from last year know that my issue was not with adoption or adoption of special needs, it was with the basis of the adoption – god told them. Ug. If there is some ‘supreme being’ why would he/she allow children to be tossed away, left to emotional neglect and physical/sexual abuse? Some have actually said ‘god’ had Ana waiting for my son and DIL – really? What possible sense does that make??? That a child would be in those conditions for almost 5 years with the ‘divine plan’ of someone adopting her? That’s crazy. I’m just enjoying my newest granddaughter and the joy she brings to our family.

Yeah, that makes no sense. The stuff I hear out of some Christians' mouths make me think that at best, God is an incompetent fool with good intentions, and at worst, he is evil and intentionally malicious.
