So a couple weeks ago I was at one of my favorite shopping stores which for this post will remain anonymous... and I see this woman about my age with the most adorable looking little daughter who was about 18 months old. We were in the same isle at the store and I was looking at her noticing that she was Caucasian with an Asian daughter. Now, I walk a fine line with approaching people that fit that description and with making the assumption that the daughter is adopted especially since I now know enough families with bio kids who have one parent that is Caucasian and one the is Asian--we have three such families at school--(the same families assumed Mr T was Chinese).
So anyway on with my post... I asked her if I could be rude and ask if her daughter was from adopted from China and that my asking was because I had just returned myself from China three months ago. Well imagine my surprise when she said yes and that she was in China when we were in China and get this...when I told her my name she said..."are you the Big Tomato?" ....uh Yep ... that be me. She knew all about me the yahoos and our journey to China. Small world..but we all know that don't we.
