37

Over the last 3 days I have prepared 37 emails that I have sent out to a long list of families who are wanting to adopt.

It just so happens that these 37 emails are all boys. In fact, they are all boys ages 12-17.

I will be surprised if I get one response because that isn't who everyone wants to adopt.

Whenever I do this it makes me sad. So many of these guys won't find a home and will age out.

But I'm running out of ideas on how to convince people that they should do this.... even though I still think they should...

Well, we're not adopting any more, but omg, I would SOOOOO take a 12-17 boy over a 12-17 girl!

the drama, the drama... in adopting a teen (or pre-teen) girl.

If one of them is a 15 y/o boy named Jackie, I would take him. But alas, I can't afford the homestudy right now. Why do they have to be so expensive. (rhetorical question, no need to answer,lol)

Anna.... (not sure why his name needs to be Jackie but I could probably find one with that name)...

anyway, Adopt America has scholarships for people willing to adopt teens to help with the homestudy, so I ahd to tell you taht...
