"I don't want other people to judge us for it, or to make it seem like we are doing something "bad" by adopting... I don't want to have to defend our decision. I want to be excited and to feel like this is something worth celebrating (because it is!) ... I am not expecting balloons and cards, I just don't want any negativity either. I look at Solomon, and with all that he has suffered through and endured in such a short life, he deserves excitement and joy and to be celebrated, as much as any other child being born or adopted into a family. He is no less important, no less of a blessing, no less of a miracle."
