Now before anyone goes off and blasts me, I want to go on record saying that I am pretty moderate in my political views. I think we are realistically down to 3 candidates and I have likes and dislikes for each of them. In my view they seem to be all pretty similar.
Everyone who know me understands that I am an advocate for adoption. I have a great admiration for politicians(i.e. Tammy Baldwin) who step up to protect children and those who want to raise them. Well today I heard one of the presidential candidate chose not to vote "yes" on an adoption bill(international included) that would have strengthened the adoptive parental rights. The bill can be found at: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/pubact91/acts/91-0373.html. While I will agree this person didn't vote "no", they certainly didn't make the effort to represent all the adoptive parents in their state. I guess each of us have our own "special cause" when voting and I do not believe that I can vote for someone who does not feel the need to protect my rights as an adoptive parent. Ok I'm off my soapbox now!
P.S. JP is going to kill me when she finds out I talked politics on her blog.
