This is what C asked me while we were washing AP in the bath tonight. "If I'm adopted, too, why don't my eyes look like hers?" Wow....I am always ready to answer adoption questions. I want the kiddos to understand as much as they can as they grow and their understanding changes. We talk openly and freely about where we are all from at our house. What surprised me about his question was that he already noticed her eyes? To me, they don't even look different, but I am her mother. But C has already noticed the differences in their appearances. We had a long talk about people looking different in different countries. We talked about how beautiful her brown eyes are and his blonde hair. I asked him what "adopted" means just to see if his answer had changed, and it had. He said "it means you picked special kids". He's exactly right...
