Lol. Not only because i live in SA Texas and its hot but because I can't stand people, family/friends, who give me that WTF look when I tell them I plan to adopt older kids and even be a foster parent later on in my life. Typical questions/comments include:
"Why? Can't you have kids?"
"Oh yea! I hear you get a lot of money for being a foster parent."
"aren't those kids weird? Troubled? Messed up? Sick?"
"So....you want the kids from bad places?"
"Like one from Africa?"
"Isn't it expensive to adopt?"
I've learned over the years just to keep my mouth shut. Especially if its people I could care less about. I've actually stopped talking to the girl who said that foster parents make a lot of money. I cross my heart I never knew that until she said that, and after I looked it up locally, it only made me more pissed of.
So ladies, anyone have adopted kids? Want to adopt? Foster? Anything =))
