Interaction with 9-year-old girl

We got to know several patients and their families during our week at Shriner's Hospital last week. One girl was a sweet 9-year-old who has been there for quite some time. She was excited to meet some new friends so hung around us our first evening. After introductions were made, she stared at us for a while and then this conversation took place (think sweet little girl voice with hick accent) (yes- even people in NY can be hick)..

Girl: Is he adopted? (pointing to Elias)
Me: "Yes, he is."
Girl: (After thinking for a little bit) ...Well it's a good thing you didn't borned him, cause that sure would have hurt. Ouch!
Me: (Speechless)

Chase and I have had several good laughs over that. I think it'll be a good family jokes for years to come.

Yes! I surely do read your blog! Today I wore out the "play again" button so I can cry again while I watch Elias walk, scoot and just about run with his 4 wheeled walker. This blog and videos are a great booster for my g'mother heart.

Great updates Meagan. So fun to see Elias walking. I hadn't been to your site in a while, so I read through several blogs. Thanks for sharing. Give Elias a big hug :)
Love, Angie R.
