I have been thinking about the reactions that come after telling someone what the expected cost of this adoption is. I am trying to understand the thinking behind a few statements that have been made.
$20,000 is definitely a lot of money, $30,000 is even more. Yes, it is a significant amount.
But ... I wonder ...
Why do many think that it is no big deal to go spend $20,000 or $30,000 on a new car?
and at the same time ...
Why do many feel $20-$30K is an outrageous cost to bring a child home?
Isn't a child worth more than a car?
