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!
