For some college glory days denotes winning a football championship or partying harder than the frat. I was a debate nerd. My glory days involved coming up with ridiculous advantages to nonsensical cases and convincing a judge that what I said not only made sense but would perfect the world in a way my opponent never could (crop rotation as an advantage to legalizing marijuana! state pride – we don’t care about your square – as a reason to keep the electoral college! don’t allow dihydrogen monoxide in the Middle East, it causes more wars than oil!).
In case you are wondering I did argue all those points, and won most of them too. Debate is theoretical by necessity, however one thing that does actually translate to the real world is definition of terms. If you don’t define your terms you don’t really know what you are talking about. There are repercussions to not knowing what you are talking about, and a lot of heartache could be avoided if terms were understood to begin with. So in adoption, where a lot of people say a lot things that mean different things, I thought it might be helpful to define as many terms as possible. So there is a new category “Glossary” that contains posts to help you figure out exactly what that strange acronym is or why that argument on Facebook was so heated. Got a term you want defined? Suggest it on our Facebook page and we’ll get right on it. I hope this helps you determine if adoption is for you and if AGOHA is the agency for you.
