A Humorous Adoption Moment

Adoption has its serious side, but it has its humorous moments too. This evening was one of those times when Owen unexpectedly revealed he is thinking more and more about his biological roots. The context, however, was hilarious!

He was glued to the television watching a scene from the old Star Wars series in which a young Luke Skywalker carried wrinkled wise Yoda on his back. All of sudden Owen remarked, "Mom, you know how you said my grandmother has really long fingernails?" I hid a smile and returned, "You mean your birthmother?" He answered, "Yeah, my birthmother. You know how she has long fingernails ... and Yoda does, too!"

Sometimes you can't help but laugh. :)
