On April 22, 2010, my grief waiting for Amelia caused me to post the most bizarre and politically incorrect thing ever. Sheesh. I should be embarrassed. 🙂 Although I have to admit, those cows still make me smile for the exact same reason! And I still giggle at this post.
Adoption is doing weird things to me. Transracial adoption is apparently making me plain nuts. Let me explain
As we leave our neighborhood every day, we pass a field of cows. Caroline loves to yell, “thanks for the milk, cows!” Sometimes she yells, “Look, baby cows!”
A couple of days ago, I saw a couple of those baby cows she loves so much. They were running. It was two of them, and they looked like a couple of children trying to catch up with their mom. One was black, and the other was white. And I got sentimental. And I cried.
Do I think that my two children are going to look like this together? (haha, I don’t think so!) Like I said, I am going nuts.
