My friend Lori found this gem, and I just had to repost it here. Honestly, the things people say. Only usually, it is directly in front of your child, showing complete insensitivity and diregard for what the child might be feeling.
Incidentally? I once had a dental receptionist, who knew some of my kids were adopted, ask me,
"Do you get help from the government?"
"No," I said, "but you know my kids are adopted, they're not foster kids."
"Oh, I know. I was just wondering... what's in it for you?"
Don't forget to vote for me by clicking this brown button. Not sure what's in it for you, but at least I may get a higher rankiing out of it. Praise be!
