Speaking of Adoption, Part II

Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper addre...
Prime Minister Harper
Nice to see Prime Minister Stephen Harper is all in favour of adoption. His personal website has an adoption link right on the front page, with a link to a photo and description of an Adoption of the Week. It's a terrific idea, all the more so because it's National Adoption Awareness Month. (OK, so he's promoting pet adoption rather than child adoption, but why quibble?)

Sarah McLachlan
I've always maintained the Prime Minister of Canada is in an ideal position, regardless of his or her stance on abortion, to reduce the number of abortions by helping to promote a national adoption strategy. It would be wonderful to see the Prime Minister, and for that matter animal cruelty opponent Sarah McLachlan, herself an adoptee, give humans the same degree of importance as animals.

Finally, anytime is a good time to watch the wonderful You Don't Have to Be Perfect to Be a Perfect Parent adoption/fostering ads at
