What Does Adoption Mean to a Kid Who's Waiting for One?

I just read this on the Orphan Chronicles and it made me yelp out loud. In their own words,
Adoption means....

1. Someone take you to the Nutcracker

2. Having your own towel

3. A new T-shirt - one that's not donated or you don't have to share

4. Eating Oreos, not generic cookies

5. Being able to open the fridge

6. Someone calling you when you're away at college

7. Sitting down after standing up for a really long time

8. The end of the marathon

9. Someone to be with at Christmas

10. Somewhere to go on school breaks

11. Someone is happy to see you when you come home

12. Someone providing you with a home, a permanent one.
