Slice of Life

Conversation with a nurse at the hospital:

"Where did you adopt your son from? "
"Ethiopia, " I replied.
"My best friend is adopting a baby from there and has an adopted son from Guatemala. Why did you choose Ethiopia? "
" Well, my husband is from Ethiopia and it made the decision pretty easy."
"How is that working for you being married to him?"
-- I will let you guess how I answered her:)

Oh, good grief. I fell of my chair reading this one. Wishing Malachi a complete recovery. I cannot imagine carrying so much on my shoulders. Wishing you a lot of strength through this period. OY!

What the?!?! I can't image that question coming out of someone's mouth. But people do say amazing things.

For some reason it struck me as funny... I thought you poor thing! I was pretty quiet with her after that though...
