    There’s a motorbike travel documentary I watch with Ewan McGregor and his best Mate Charley Boorman where they travel all over the world. The first one must have been like 15 years ago but the new one is on Apple TV on Fridays. He had his adopted 17 year old daughter on it that he adopted when she was a really small child in an orphanage but never mentioned it before.

    he and his friend do a lot of work with UNICEF which is where he met her. I admire that he isn’t rubbing it in people’s faces like for instance Madonna and considering how closely I’ve been following the documentaries I didn’t know.

    It takes heart to do that.
    Don't know if I have that much heart.

    Because orphans? He has the money and enough time to raise her for 15 years. When we originally saw her in the doc 15 years ago it broke my heart because it was miserable. He did a good thing. She’s now full of confidence and has had a good life so far since then. They get on great, have a real laugh and are completely natural like he’s her biological dad...I doubt she can even remember the orphanage.

    No, 2 kids of my loins.

    However, my parents got pregnant in their mid teens, and gave the girl up for adoption about 2.5 years before I was born. I found out when I was 13. My Dad started looking for her when I was about 15. Due to adoption laws, they wouldn't put him in touch with her. When she started having kids of her own, and she knew for years she'd been adopted, she wanted to find out about any family medical history. She found us (due to my Dad reaching out) about 17 years ago. I went from being the eldest child, to being the middle child.

    My cousin and his wife have four adopted kids. This kids had horrible parent's before them. I won't get in the parents issues which why they were taking away. It's a neat thing they have a loving family now

    Thinking about maybe adopting a korean girl, skip marrying mia farrow biatchass, and in a few years go full Woody Allen on her.

    that’s wonderful.

    my sister in law (I forgot) has two adopted girls who are sisters. Highly autistic, one was in a wheelchair and as adults one of them can’t live alone. She’s in an annex attached to the main house.

    I have been trying to watch this but it isn’t available on “Amazon Prime in Canada”.

    Driving me batty.

    One of my best friends adopted a 13 year old into his family but they kicked him out a few years later because he was so troubled and aggressive. I have thought about it myself though. I wonder if I could impart something worthwhile to a kid over the course of the days and hours where only a minute or two of wisdom sinks in. It’s such a hard thing.

    I love hearing that kids like this can find good homes. No matter what kids need a good up brining.

    What about Apple TV if you do the free month thing to watch the current one Long Way Up?

    And it was good that the sisters were together.
    One of them was pretty violent but not in her right mind at all so I’ reckon she didn’t mean it. Happy they managed to stay together as siblings.

    this shitty YouTubed family blogger had 4 kids. Adopted an Asian kid who had problems and was told he had sever problems from doctors,

    She was on forums asking what are some problems that look bad but aren’t that bad. So basically she could milk the kid for views. She basically gave up and gave the kid back.

    some say she thought he had a brain tumor so she figured he would die and could get sympathy views. The vid above is long but these people are insane and are basically what’s wrong with these YouTube families exploiting their kids.

    good to hear that the siblings can stay together. People don't realise that could damage they're way of thinking if they are not with Thier sibling. My cousin first kid he adopted was only child but the three others came from such a broken home we didn't know if he could get all of them at the time. I really really feel sorry for those three kids especially the one who seen it all. Legit makes me cry every time I see the one child...sorry coming as a puss
