Like WOW!

I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised! We have actually received no negative comments to our announcement that we are adopting again.

That includes negative comments from family as well!

Well, at least none that were made directly to US.


But, we have had lots of questions. Mostly the regular ones:

What made you decide to do this again? (asked with true sentiment)
How many kids do you have now? Do they all get along?
How do you find the time and energy?

Here is my favorite funny one: I guess China expects you to come back every year now?

And then I received the most profound comment the other day.

    Great post!!!! I’ve linked to it today, as I’ve just started a series of “answers” to the most common questions my hubby and I have gotten over the years since we started the process to adopt Li’l Empress. The “you are adopting AGAIN?!” question comes up often for us too. Thanks for sharing.
