    I do admire people who adopt children. There are so many children in the foster system that need good homes to, and people who open those homes up to, are good people in my book.

    Animals may not think like us but they do feel pain, they do feel fear, they are alive. Just because they don't speak doesn't mean they can't be hurt.
