DD7 is no longer a cute little child who says amusingly precocious things. In fact, she acts more like a sulky tween most of the time so while I don't have much to share, she told me a few days ago that she plans on adopting an orphan rather than having a biological child since she believes no child should grow up without a family.

She asked me if I would be disappointed if she adopts a toddler or an older child as opposed to a baby. I told her I would be the most proud grandmother around but this is something she should be thinking about in 20+ years when she is done with school and has established a career.

No idea where this came from since we haven't even been discussing adopting a pet.
