Jeez...what's up with adopting an Asian child when you already have 4 children? So much Caucasian guilt to prove themselves to the public. I imagine it was the wife's decision.
People that have such a need to prove their morality to the public usually have a bag of bones in their closet. I imagine she might have been banging the milkman on the side.
Or maybe because they are literally the richest people in the world and could easily afford adopting and raising a kid in need...they just did
I guess it depends on one's perception of parenting. For me it equals time spent: i.e. listening to the child, teaching them life lessons, etc.
I have two kids and I can barely keep up. And I'm a pretty amazing dude. :smile: So I can't imagine having the attention span that's needed to pay attention to five of those kids (much less four). Then again, I know people have large families and they find a way to make it work.
I guess it depends on your perception, committment, etc. For me it would be too much.
