Really happy this passed.

The deafening sound of silence from many who usually comment here...

I'm an adoptive parent with a son from Korea, and I want to say how glad I am to see this pass. While it doesn't address everything, as others have said, it's a start and for that I'm thankful.

I was very naive when we began our adoption process, and my views have changed a lot in the last five years, thanks in part to the many adult adoptees who are speaking out. In fact, my views on adoption have changed so much that I'm not sure I could adopt again.

Now I'm content to support efforts to perserve families, both here and abroad.
