I know everyone who has adopted has these stories. But wow.
We get a lot of comments and questions when we go places.
Where is she adopted from?
What made you decide to adopt?
How much did it cost? (yes, people we hardly know often ask this question)
Does she have cleft lip/palate? Did you know that when you adopted her?
And list goes on...
But I got a new comment today.
"Wow, her hair is so much darker than your other kids!"
I almost spit out the water I was sipping. And started laughing.
So you'd think I would have explained... "Well...um... We adopted her from China"
All I could muster was...
"yes (long dramatic pause), it is."
