Downright pissed

Usually I could give a rat's ass what celebrities have to say. But as an adoptive parent it really ticks me off when celebrities speak without thinking. Take Jessica "dumber than a stump" Simpson.

The 25-year-old singer, who recently filed for divorce from Nick Lachey, also said in a recent interview: "I want to adopt, and I plan to adopt before I have my own kids". "I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing, amazing things, and the international adoption rate just since her has skyrocketed. It's unbelievable," Simpson said.


What the hell does she plan to refer her adopted children as ???? Who's are they if their not "hers". People have quoted Angelina as saying she wants to adopt children from all colors of the rainbow.....what? I was at bunko the other night and my girlfriend was telling me she saw a program (while I was in China, otherwise I too would have watched it) about internationally adopted children and that some of them are put up for adoption after they get to the States. I guess because the parents felt that these children weren't "perfect", they should put them up for adoption yet again. Obviously this is happening often if it was worthy of a show being aired on TV? Did anyone see this show? I'm not sure if I am more pissed at the celebrities that make these children sound like the latest Prada handbag or the "average people" adopting these children then freaking out (or even worse, giving them up for adoption here)when they're not perfect. These are real human beings and not handbags!

consider the source, aimee...these aren't exactly the sharpest crayons in the box. she thought buffalo wings come from actual buffalos. the people who listen to these morons and give any credit to what they say are as idiotic as the people talking. what you have done is absolutely amazing and anyone who adopts from any country- including the good ol' USA are the special ones. i, personally, am very happy for you and am very proud and lucky to call you a friend. if i ever run into Jessica, i'll kick her dumb blond ass- or at the very least, give her a good old school jen tongue lashing! that'll "learn" her!

love you-

jen

I am with you sister that Jessica Simspons is as thick as brick... if that chick were any dumber she would be down right stupid... but then again she already is down right stupid. Thought she was before this and seem to think so even more... whether she said this or not??? She is still dumb... let's not waste words on that plank of wood... I looked at the photos on your blog... your girls are as cute as a button... my husband and I just put in our dossier and it went out to China yesterday... I guess this is the beginning of the end of this period of our life... drop a few lines at some time... take care... Felicity

I have felt the same way about the whole Jessica Simpson thing. UGH, she drives me crazy. This is her way to 'save face' in the press with her divorce. What a ****

Aimee,

I read the Jessica Simpson thing in People magazine while were camping at the beach . . . I had the same thought . .. who's kids are they if they're not hers?? I have to say, though, I hear that term all the time and I am constantly correcting people. Sometimes they get annoyed, but I think people should use the correct terms, especially when they are around my kids!

I agree - she is a complete moron (and "dumber than a stump").

The media sure had done a fine job lately making children, who have been adopted internationally, out to be fashion accessories. Crappy journalism is alive and well - lucky us!

Aimee,
I'm still not quite sure how I ended up on your blog site but once there I was intrigued to read. Especially the most recent comment regarding "Downright pissed".
I agree! We have only been home 5 weeks with our daughter, Abbie and have already had a "well educated, scholar" ask me about my daughters adoption process. Things went well in the conversation until he literally compared it to "adopting a pet from the SCPA".
Now my daughter is 15 months and most likely is unaware of what he said and the anger I felt at his total stupidity. Thank God, she was!
I am truly amazed at the apparently highly educated people who amazinly enough seem to have no common sense once they open their mouths.
I always knew Jessica Simpson was an airhead and though I've not heard that statement made, it certainly doesn't surprise me any.
In closing, I enjoyed reading your family posts and most enjoyed the photos. Your Emma and Jessica are very beautiful princesses and though they are fortunate to have parents like you (instead of morons like my "well educated", foot in the mouth creep), you are blessed more to have been chosen by a higher power to love, cherish and raise them!
Oh, by the way...my moron jerk admitted he had no children. Thank God for that again!
