I had the "Today" show on in the other room this morning and heard a woman talking about "Adoption Month" and "Forever Families" and people ringing a bell by their forever family when the adoption is finalized. She said there were twelve adoptions that morning and there would be twelve bells rung.

Rushed into the room expecting to see happy shelter dogs...and was profoundly disappointed when it turned out to be human kids being adopted.

I am such a misanthrope.

At the same time, I still think it is weird that this adoption organization is using all the buzz words more commonly associated with pet adoption (especially "forever homes" and "forever families"). She never used the words "boys and girls" or "kids" or "children"-- just "adoptions". The way she was talking it sounded like people on Rockefeller Plaza had literally just adopted kids that morning-- like at a pet adoption event.

People are weird. Or I am.
