To give a little history, my mom had undiagnosed infertily and my oldest sister was adopted at birth. Shortly after my sister's birth my mom became pregnant with me and then later my younger sister.
I was recently at a family function and my aunt (with whom I'm not very close) approached me to talk about hubby and my plans to adopt. Her comment to me was "We're excited to hear about your plans - and hope that, just like your mom, you'll be able to have a child of your own after you adopt."
I'm not usually one who is at a loss for words, but I was dumbfounded. Reactions or suggestions of how to handle this?
