It doesn’t make any sense that the name the adoptive couple gave my niece a completely Italian name.
Our baby has absolutely no Italian heritage. Nothing against Italians, it’s just that she isn’t Italian.
Their family is Italian, so in my opinion, it’s just another way of trying to make a child believe they’re something they’re not, trying to change who they are and make them into what you want them to be.
It’s a way of trying to make a child theirs, that will never truly be theirs, no matter what.
I think it is borderline cruel to name a little Puerto-Rican girl the most Italian name you can get.
I can’t wrap my brain around it, much like everything else about this adoption.
