Alright, .. I give in. Mom has been telling me to start a blog. So, here I am.

Today I met a new deaf couple that just moved from California to Emmett. After chatting for a while, they asked if my children looked like my parents. I told them that I don't know, since I am adopted. Their first response was "I'm sorry about that."

I'm sorry? I thought.

I have gotten this response so many times in the past. I told them that I was not sorry at all! I loved my family and can't imagine my life any other way. My family can sign and communicate with me, they let me make my choices, they taught me a lot of things about this world, and most of all, they loved me and I loved them back.

Again, I thought.. SORRY?! Why do many people say that to me? Perhaps they think I was given away because of my deafness? Maybe so. It's just kind of interesting how people react when I mention that I was adopted. Hm.

Anyway.. this is my first post. Mom wanted me to post about the microwave guys that charged me money and didnt get anything fixed at all. Perhaps next time.. :-P
