When we received the referral for Aidan, we contacted an International Adoption doctor in Fairfax to review the pictures and medical records--Standard practice in International Adoptions. He didn't find anything overtly a problem, medically speaking. But, for some reason, he added that Aidan would probably have difficulties in school and that he would not go to Harvard. I hadn't even met Aidan yet, but my back went up and my internal response was "Well we really wanted him to go to UVA!! So, that won't be a problem!"
I have gotten over that. Really. : )
Fast forward to last night: Aidan was getting out of the bathtub and we heard heavy rain start. I said to Aidan, " Look, Aidan, it's pouring! Now we don't have to water the trees!" Aidan replied, with a worried look on his face, "Is is stormin' Mama?" He hates thunder and lightening, so I said, "No. It's just a Tropical deluge." And Aidan said, "Oh. Like a Rain Forest?"
My jaw dropped to the floor. Where did he learn that??? I grabbed him up in a huge hug and said yes!!!! What a smart little Dudely!!!
