Questions from the boys..

We first talked to Lance about this adoption as soon as we came from the first agency meeting back in November 2007. When we asked him how he felt about it, he simply replied,

"I don't see why not!" Over the last year, the questions seem to come out of no where... "Why doesn't Lily's mom want her?" "Why can't she take care of her?" As we were driving to school one morning, he offered to drive Lily back to Korea if she wanted to visit her foster mom!

Even Luca today wanted to ride his bike to go and pick her up!

Last night, I got a big one... "When are we going to tell Lily that you are not her "real" mom? We talked a bit about how I was going to be her "real mom" and we discussed the terms birth mom and foster mother. I also told him that Lily would know as soon as she was able to understand. Oh, he is so innocent and just can't grasp the concept of a mom giving up her baby.
