ADOPTING A BABY

A Polish couple was delighted when their long wait to adopt a baby came to an
end. The adoption center called and told them that they had a wonderful Russian
baby boy and the couple took him without hesitation.
On the way home from the adoption center, they stopped by the local college so
they each could enroll in night courses. After they filled out the forms, the
registration clerk inquired, “What ever possessed you to study Russian?”
The couple said proudly, “We just adopted a Russian baby, and in a year or so
he’ll start to talk. We just want to be able to understand him.”
