Good morning/evening....just a few quick updates for you today!
We are in Korea right now visiting schools with our organization that we both work for. We are in Seoul and are thrilled to be visiting the country where our daughter is from! AND we should be able to meet her next week!! SUPER EXCITED. It was a bit emotional landing in Korea, knowing how close she was, and that we would not be bringing her back with us. This time, anyway.
The O'Dell Daddy is about to meet their son in China. They have been super busy! Dad and Granddad are in China, while Mom and the rest of the kiddos are back in the states. These are the times you are thankful for Skype!
Beth's shirts came in and she is looking super fab modeling them! Check her out! You can buy an Africa shirt from there, too. Asia shirts to come soon!
Okay, I know I said we would talk about adoption Q and A etiquette, but I'm only going to write 1-2 things today. I've been traveling and my mind is full of way too much extra stuff! So, here ya go for now:
1. Most adoptive parents do not mind answering questions about their adoption.
2. Most adoptive parents do not want to answer personal questions in front of their children. We've all heard too many examples of people asking about personal details right in front of the kiddos. Huh?? I got a taste of this when we fostered some beautiful young ladies. First I felt obliged to answer, then I felt obliged to protect the girls' privacy instead. You know....like everyone does for their children:)
More on this later....
We should have a featured family in about 2 weeks, so stay tuned. Want to send in yours? Email me at tonyagarrick5 (at) gmail (dot) com Click on our back to the map button to follow next week's families on our other pages....
