Pondering a thought

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?
