Why Ethiopia?

I saw the following exchange on the Isaacs blog, but it was actually taken from the Long's. I guess it really just sums up, for me, one of the many reasons we are adopting from Ethiopia:

Max: "Mom, in Etopia we don't wake up our mom to go potty in the night. We just go by ourselves."
Mom: "Why don't you wake up your mom?"
Max: "Because we don't HAVE any moms."

(My stomach dropped and the reality of my sons' past hit me again. I picked him up, gave him a huge squeeze, and said...)

Mom: "In America you can wake up your mom."
