My wife and I have been working to adopt a child for many years now. The process is slow, expensive and frustrating. I am already a parent of 2 boys (men now really) from my original marriage. I guess they feel that by making the adoption process every bit as slow expensive and frustrating as parenthood, they are proving a point. However it sometimes feels like prison to me. Intentionally, systematically, institutionally and unnecessarily painful.
