when i'm at a loss for words i enjoy telling you about some things i've recently read that have been interesting to me.
Most of you here probably follow Licia's blog in Haiti b/c I talk about it all the time, but if you haven't recently read one of her entries I highly recommend you head over there now.
oh i love this post. so i am a social worker and in my classes we could talk about things like cost, reasons, and disparities. But since I don’t have any close friends that have adopted, i dont know the questions to ask and not ask. thank you for letting me know. i do have some since of filter as i would not ask someone i do not know well these questions. anyway, thank you for the update, loss of words posts are the best.
i also pray for the end times, whatever those may be. i ask God to bring them as well and then i quickly remind him that it does scare me however because of my theology upbringing of it being something like a hurricane/tornato/volcano/earthquake/left behind series-like. yikes.
*sense, not since. oops.
A lady actually asked me in a department store aisle if Wislaine had AIDS!!!!! Can you believe it??? I was so flabbergasted I just said NO but what I should have said is, do you??? Then we went to the ladies room to change her and this lady and her daughter were still talking about it!!! People can be so insensitive and rude, especially when you are standing there with the child. I have never come up with a good response to these off-the-wall questions.
Yeah, we will be adopting transracially also and these are the two most common questions:
1. How much does a black baby cost?
2. Don’t you want to give Micah(my biological son) a REAL brother or sister?
There is a fine line between interest/ignorance.
FYI, my hubby and I are probably going to Haiti in March with Lifeline missions! Yay!
