“Race, blood, lineage, and nationality don't matter; they're just the way that small minds keep score. All that matters about blood is that it's warm and that it beats through a loving heart.”
Scott Simon, Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption

“There are times when the adoption process is exhausting and painful and makes you want to scream. But, I am told, so does childbirth.”
Scott Simon, Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption

“So: this is where we are going to become parents. You walk into the building as a couple, and leave a few minutes later as a family. You walk in recollecting long romantic dinners, nights at the theater, and care-free vacations. You leave worrying about where to get diapers, milk, and Cheerios.”
Scott Simon, Baby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption
