After going to the dentist this morning and having to listen to the dental assistant talk...or I guess I should say "run her mouth!"....I am so thankful to everyone that has a heart for adoption and even those they may not but don't make STUPID comments!
(sorry...this may be more of a vent than a thankful post!)
So, I am laying in the chair with my mouth wide open while the dentist is working on my teeth and she said "Now that you can't really talk I am going to ask you some questions!" She first said...."I think it's good that you adopted but I couldn't do it....see when I get a dog it has to be a pretty one!" She then asked me "how much is it to buy a kid....do you get a loan? do you save up? What do you do?" She said..."If I saved up that much money I would rather take a trip to Hawaii or somewhere like that!" She then proceeded to tell me that "most adopted kids have lots of problems!"
All of this was said while I couldn't talk.....my heart was beating 90 to nothing! I was so offended and so angry that someone is that stupid to not only think that way but voice it to a mother of three adopted children that are ALL beautiful.
I was able to say that we can birth some ugly babies to and she then said "but they are yours so you don't think they are ugly"!!! WHAT??? Last time I checked ALL my children are MINE!!!
I am really thinking about writing a letter or something. I love the dentist but I don't care to ever talk to or see her again!
SO, I guess I should also say I am thankful that my whole face was numb and I wasn't able to speak at all!!!
