As we've been letting friends and family know of our decision to adopt, we've gotten all types of responses and reactions...excited, suprised, funny, teary, and speechless reactions. People are suprised at first, because we had never metioned that we were even thinking about adopting--let alone adopting a child with special needs. We didn't discuss the adoption with many people prior to making a decision because we didn't want our decision to be clouded by other peoples opinions and/or fears. The first question most people ask is, "well how did this decision come about?" I will save the long detailed version for another time. This song depicts exactly what we felt like prior to making this decision. Once our eyes were open to the orphan crisis, and the down syndrome orphan crisis in particular, we "saw what we saw and heard what we heard" and we couldn't forget it.
So the question I'd like to ask back to those who ask us, "Why?" is "Why not?"
