And They Said It Wouldn’t Last

In the middle of our first adoption, a guy I know asked if I could get my money back if I didn’t like the kid. I wish I’d said, “Do your parents want their money back on you?”

Ten years ago this week, I became Cherry’s mom. She was a smiley Chinese version of the Gerber baby. Today, she is a Barbie Doll. You know, the one that comes dressed in the nuclear physicist suit.

We celebrated with a weekend at the beach.

Come on in. The water's fine.
No thanks. I'm fine right here.
