The Issue is Closed: Adoption…

Kremlin children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said Wednesday that no more Russian children would be allowed to join potential adoptive families in the United States despite calls from US officials for flexibility with adoptions that were “in process” before Moscow banned Americans from adopting Russian children earlier this year.

“The issue is closed because there is no process,” Astakhov told reporters at the Russian Embassy in Washington following two days of discussions with US officials on the subject of international adoptions.

What I find interesting is that there are hundreds of thousands (Yes – hundreds of thousands!) of kids needing to be adopted in America. So to cry over the fact that Russia has banned adoption makes you a strange individual, indeed…

It all falls back on a saying that I use, “Look in the mirror first and see what needs to be done there before looking elsewhere!”

America – adopt Americans…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
