The other night at the supper table, Angel asked about her adoption. This is the first time she’s initiated conversation about it. (I wrote it down right afterwards so I would remember it word for word.)
Angel: Mom, when did I get here again?
Me: What do you mean?
Angel: (exasperated sigh) I MEAN, when did I get here in my family.
Me: Well you were born on October 24th.
Angel: In D’s tummy, right? (She knows her birth mom’s name, we just use D on the blog.)
Me: Yep, you were in D’s tummy. And then you went to Rhea’s house for a little bit. And then on December 21st me and Daddy came and got you! Just in time for Christmas!
Angel: And then I became your first children!
I know we’ll have some tough conversations in the years to come. Thankful that this first one was filled with joy and laughter!
