To adopt is to make something our own. Whether you adopt a child or a principle or vice, we make it our own. It’s a useful thing to do. When you have a problem, adopt it. Make it your own and find the opportunities that exist within that problem and within it’s solution. When you make a problem your own, then it becomes less of a threat and more of a learning experience.

“We can’t just adopt it,” I said. He wasn’t happy. It was a policy he’d been working on for some time and thought my reaction was given. Now he looked at me as though I had just shot his hamster and then trod on it.

I know a couple of families that adopt kids. Most of them are from Haiti. THey are so nice and cute. I know a friend who was about to be adopted than the parents didn’t want her anymore at the last second:(

My cousin was adopted from Togo
A tiny country in Africa
Where he surely would have died
Had my Uncle not taken him back to the USA
My friend in childhood
Was adopted from Louisiana
The youngest of five
Her birth parents could take care of them all

We walked into the pet store. All I had on my mind was finding the best pet. I was going to adopt the cutest softest sweetest pet I could find! I was determined.

“These are your choices, Corey. I really don’t see any other options here.” Matt looked at me with a stern resolve resounding from his deep blue eyes. I had to turn away. “Fine. I’ll adopt your conditions so long as you give me just a bit more time to get my affairs in order.” “Will two weeks be enough.” I turned back to him. “I suppose so.” He stood, the chair squealing across the linoleum floor, and walked out of the room without another word. I put my head in my hands. This is it, we’re finally done.

It was shortly after I was born, that my Parents decided that they loved having kids so much that they were going to adopt another one. She was going to be older than I, and I wanted her to be kind and to love my parents, and I with all her heart.
adopt new practices. adopt a new life. adopt new style. adopt new way of doing things. adopt new work. adopt new peace. adopt breathing. adopt peace. adopt peace. adopt my way. adopt being present. adopt my style. adopt my way. adopt new life. adopt my peace.

There once was a young woman that hoped for a place to call home, she knew she was too old to be adopted but she couldn’t help but fantasize about the family she always wanted and yet never had.

I adopt my carelessness,
while you examine the cutlery, looking for the knife
that cut the dinner table in two,
where we once sat glued to one another.

Adopt? When I was littler I was always curious if I was adopted or not. I always asked my parents to figure the truth but Ialways got the same answer. As I grew lder I egan to look more and more like my dad nd the fact that I was not dopted became more and more clear. I am glad I was not adopted because you often get the brand that your parents don’t love you. Without love what is in the world?
