Earth to parents


Mommy’s Lil’ Guatling, for kids adopted from Guatemala. I guess it’s the equivalent to “China doll” for parents who adopt from China. For communities that claim “love transcends race” (and that’s a whole different rant), there sure seems to be a sector that focuses on the race of the child.

WTF is a “guatling”? Is it like an earthling? A foundling? An underling? A gosling? A yearling? Are the parents of “guatlings” called “whitelings”? Or maybe “dingalings”?

The general rule applies here.
