Package Deal....?

The conversation I had with a friend at lunch today. . . . .

Friend: So you were adopted, right?

Me: I sure was!

Friend: Have you ever met your "real" parents"?

Me: I've met my biological mother, but not my biological father.... I don't know if I'll ever try to find him or not....

Friend: And your brother was adopted too, right?

Me: Yes, he was too.

Friend: So... were you two like.... a package deal?

Happy Monday. . . . !


  1. Haha. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure your adoptive parents had the BEST deal! God bless.

  2. Actually, I'm pretty sure I'M the one who got the "package deal" out of it:
    1. A wonderful Christian family who serves the Lord.
    2. A Mom and a Dad still married (and in love, I might add) after 37 years of marraige.
    3. An awesome big brother who loves the Lord and serves Him faithfully in His local church's ministries.
    ETC, ETC, ETC....

  3. So nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Sorry it was during a time of illness and then being away...but I'm back and blessed to meet you!

    Big ((hugs))

I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.
