any questions?

Naturally people have questions around adoption. And for the most part, I'm really okay with that, because if they don't ask, they won't know or may form the wrong notion. (And being a question person myself, I can relate!).

There are times when some insensitive questions just really irk me.

Here's one: (after learning of our adoption) What are you doing that for?

When I am shocked by someone, I generally don't think well on my feet. Thankfully the above was asked of my husband when I wasn't around. I know I will have to come up with some good responses. :)

I read an article that explains this quite well in The Washington Post. It made me smile.
