Every time Emily Westbrooks goes to the grocery store someone inevitably asks her if her daughter is adopted. In fact, since adopting her daughter, Emily has discovered that people are often surprisingly brazen about the personal questions they’ll pose when adoption is part of the story. Questions like, “How much did she cost?”, “What happened to her real parents?”, and “Are you going to keep trying for your own kids?” come up with surprising frequency.
If you’ve adopted, chances are you’ve heard these before. If you’re in the process of adopting, brace yourself!
