One less orphan

It doesn't matter, in a way, where this is. But you're looking at two folks from Wisconsin who traveled a very long way to adopt this little guy. They say there are 147 million orphans in the world. Now there is one less.

If you're wondering why anyone in America would travel that far too adopt a special needs child, then I'll suggest, with all due respect, that you become informed about the various requirements in both in the US and in nations who are signed with the Hague Adoption Convention.

In a month that's seen more international horror - and more in-country strife than the US has seen since he Vietnam War protests, we thought we'd shine a little light on something fine.

And to those of you who matter in the life of a child or an animal, we don't think there are small ways to matter: We may not know you but thanks for showing up. And yes. It counts if they're your own.. Actually, it counts big.

We now return to the silly skirmishes at hand.
