That kid doesn't look like your son

Funny video clip making the rounds right now. Little Losiah is jamming out with his sisters to "Single Ladies" by Beyonce, and is brought to tears when his Dad tells him he's not a "single lady."

Turns out this sweet little guy is a Korean-born adoptee. His Dad, Carlos Whittaker, deftly turned his parenting faux-pas into a platform for adoption education. Way to go!

The great thing about the video is — it's gone viral, but I'm reading on all the comments, "That kid doesn't look like your son!" And I kinda smile at it. We did adopt Losiah from South Korea three years ago; we brought him into our family and he became an instant part of the family. I'd love to bring adoption to the forfront of the conversation. And so if we can have Beyonce's "Single Ladies" help that, then by all means we'll go ahead and do that. As an adoptive parent, you think that you're going to change a child's life — but he has definitely changed our life for the better.
