Our children LOVE to go to campus and play with the students, and after doing this for 16 years, they know they can expect lots of attention AND lots of CANDY and other free stuff. I was talking to some new friends today when Selah joined us:
Me: And this is our youngest daughter, Selah
Selah: I'm adopted.
Not sure what that's all about, but seconds later she ran off to play with some other kids who were there...
**Edit: for those of you who haven't adopted older children, we're fine. Really. Selah loves being in our family and we're attaching nicely....but there are still times when she's very aware of the skin color differences. Later that night I asked her about this encounter, and I think she was self-conscious about the fact that people might be wondering why we don't look alike. The little dig about not being my daughter, there at the end....that one was just because she's learned how to make me squirm :)
