Will is 13!

Always the comedian

I have really tried to protect Brant, Will and Jay from all my worries and anxieties about the adoption and the crazy-long process we've been in for a year. Generally.....mostly......I think I'm able to keep them from recognizing the stress that I'm feeling, but....sometimes my less-rational, less-sane side emerges.

Like on a recent lazy Saturday. I let my guard down a little bit while it was just me and Will. I was worrying (ok, ruminating) out loud, saying things like:

"What if the new boys get here and don't like us?
"What if the new boys don't really even WANT to be adopted?"
"What if they're happy right where they are?"
"What if they don't want to live with us in a white family?"

Without missing a beat, Will said...

"Better save your receipt."

Love that child. Even when he's irreverent.
