In the large list of things to freak out about for next week, I find myself going over what the first conversation will be/should be/ etc. Which is funny, considering it will probably be such an emotional event that I won’t remember what I’m saying in the first place. Leading contenders:
- Hola mis ninas, soy tu papi americano (most probable)
- Soy dad, y yo te amo (the basics)
- Hola mis ninas, como estan ustedes (too formal/old?)
It’s not so much what will be said that is obsessing me. It’s more the surreal experience adoptive parents go through with introducing themselves to their children. I’ve absolutely longed for this day for a very long time. But, being honest and all, it just seems a bit weird.
Family birth by verbal introduction.
