Rachel Lewis is an adoptive mom. She writes, “I’ve heard it. You’ve heard it. Maybe you’ve said it. You know someone. I know someone. Maybe you know 10 someones. And yet saying it is seriously not cool.”
What is it?
“As soon as you adopt, you’ll get pregnant.”
This is an offensive and potentially very hurtful thing to say to someone who’s just recently adopted. You may be attempted to say it. But don’t. Just. Don’t. Learn why.
(Then avoid it like the plague!)
