Adoption is one of the kindest things things you can do as human and I have enormous respect for anyone who does it. It's usually a spark of enthusiasm that causes a family to adopt someone into their home but for some, that spark of enthusiasm doesn't last very long and becomes dim. When things get hard, and the responsibilities kick in, remembering why you adopted in the first place becomes more and more fuzzy.

The short video below is a perfect depiction of what happens when the spark dissipates. In the video we see a family adopting a little girl from an orphanage. At first they are super excited to have a new addition to their family but eventually their excitement wears off and quickly turns to annoyance.

When it gets to be too much, the father packs the little girl into the car with her favorite toy and starts off towards an empty dirt road. The father stops the car on the side of the road and throws the girl's toy far from the car. As she runs after her toy, Dad quickly hops back in the car and begins speeding off.

The little girl is abandoned in the middle of nowhere, but when Dad looks back in the rearview mirror, things have changed. The video is a powerful metaphor for something that happens frequently all over the world. Watch it for yourself - but beware, you'll need tissues for this one!
