My mom and I have a running joke. She tends to think she has told me things that she has not. I usually say something like "Back up. I think I missed a day," or "Thanks for including me. " I am of course joking, and it is kind of funny. I guess when you have 19 kids you are bound to forget to share some things.
Two weeks ago she starts telling me a story about how a friend of hers called to relay that she saw my name in Melissa's Faye Greene's new book. My mom kept talking and I said, "I am sorry mom, I think I missed a day." "Oh, didn't I tell you that Melissa included our family in a chapter in her new book No Biking in the House without a Helmet?, " she said. I must of missed that. Thanks for including me.
I went and found the book at my local library. It really is a great book. Melissa Faye Green is an amazing author with a realistic take on the world of adoption. She tells wonderful stories of adopting older children and has a witty way of viewing her world. She will have you laughing out loud.
PS I am on p. 100.
