Just so you know I come by it honestly…
I called my Mom the other day to confirm some dates and other facts that I needed to fill out this massively complex form for the government. I understand that “massively complex government form” is redundant. Don’t email me.
I was looking at the part where they wanted me to classify my family relationships 1=mom, 2=dad, 3=children, etc. Some of the categories were step/foster parents.
I jokingly asked my mother, “Have I ever had any step or foster parents?”
Without missing a beat she said, “We tried, but no one would take you.”
I love my mom for her wit, the sense of humor she subtlety taught me and the whole “life” thing. Yes. I’m a birth survivor and proud of it. Sorry my head was so big Mom. I love you.
