Awkward Questions

Have a read at this Mom's post. She has a large family, with some special needs kids and some trans-racially adopted kids too.
She came up with a list of the most awkward questions she's been asked.
Some are so ridiculous they're funny. others are plain hurtful.

But other than for a good laugh, I think it's worth reading because of how she chooses to answer some of these intrusive questions. I admire her zen attitude, and I think she has a point: being defensive about it doesn't give your kids the best perception about their adoption...

I'll have to try and rememer this...


  1. Thanks so much for linking to my post and for your words. It's always hard to know if I'm responding the right way.

    1. Hi Sharla,
      I hope you don't mind that I linked to your post without permission... I think this is a struggle for everyone touched by adoption and the way you respond inspired me. I thought your post would be beneficial for a lot of waiting parents...
      Thanks for sharing!
