"Children Are Forever: All Sales Are Final!"
Julias never bought a baby before. Okay, shes adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love! Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife are seekingcosts 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white!
At least the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of two years for white babies. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. Whats that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? Make that anywhere between 2 years and Donald trump winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
But only five days after signing the contract at the adoption agency, a bomb drops - a birth mother has chosen Julia and Amy. Oh and by the way, shes in labor. Oh and by the way, Julia has disclosed something which puts the whole adoption at riskunless she is willing to engage in some unethical behavior. The marriage and the baby are on the line. What would Obama do?
While this show clearly addresses some serious themes, in the hands of director W. Kamau Bell (CNNs United Shades of America), "Children are Forever: All Sales are Final!," is also a hilarious, unvarnished depiction of the adoption industry.
