Today on the way home from gymnastics A was talking about how many children she wanted to have when she was all grown up. She said that she wanted one boy and two girls. Then out of the blue she asked me if she had to adopt them.
A has heard us talk about adoption before, but she never really asks questions about it or talks about it herself so she kind of took me off guard.
I told her no, she did not have to adopt her children unless she wanted to. She then told me that she wanted to adopt two girls. I told her that was great if that was what she wanted. She really didn't say anything else so I let it go at that. I figured that when she is ready to talk more about adoption she will.
