My grandma and my uncles have a buy here/pay here car lot and body shop. Sometimes when my mom has Noah and Zoe, she will take them to the shop to visit my grandma. Last year one of Noah’s favorite things was to cruise around the lot in his walker.
My mom had them at the shop last week and a customer came in who remembered Noah from last year. She asked if he was the same little baby who had been in the walker and said how much he had grown up since she had seen him last. My mom was holding Zoe, and she told the woman that Zoe was Noah’s little sister. The woman paused a moment before she asked if Zoe was adopted. My mom explained yes, that Zoe was born in Vietnam.
The woman then asked, “Will she be able to speak American?”
My mom said she tried not to laugh as she told the woman that Zoe would be able to speak English, but that she might end up having a little trouble with her Vietnamese.
