As I sat down with a pair of women who I truly believe have the most loving intentions, I knew I was in for it. Name your adoption cliche and they've undoubtedly shouted it from the highest rooftop.
"Oh look at your gorgeous daughter! You know it always happens that way, you adopt and then BAM you're pregnant!"
"You really are a saint. To think how you saved that boy and now you have a real child. What a blessing."
"She is so gorgeous. It reminds me of how sick your boy was in the beginning. How sick was he again?"
In true Ned Flanders form, OH DIDDLY IGGLY FREAKING YIDDLY!!!!
But really, conversations like this tend to provide that occasional kick in the arse that I need to keep real. Annoying? Yes. Ignorant? Most absolutely. Just one more reason to travel the hell out of our kids so that they NEVER behave that way? YOU BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR.
