One of the Compassion International Uganda bloggers named Carlos shared this story. Carlos has an adopted son from Korea and as he was showing a picture of his son, Losiah, to a group of children, a boy named Butewas looked confused.
Carlos: “Do you know what it means to adopt?”
Butewas’ eyes lit up.
Carlos: “I adopted Losiah because his mother could not care for him.”
Butewas: “Do you think you can adopt me?”
This kind of interaction kills me. Carlos didn’t share how he responded. And I don’t know how you do respond.
