I took the kids to the library today. I was on one isle with Joshua and Delaney was on the other side.
I heard a child's voice ask, "Do you speak Korean?" from the other side of the isle.
Delaney replied, "No".
The voice then asked,"What do you speak?"
At that point I interjected, "She speaks the same language as you do....English". I figured I was speaking with some intrusive little child.
I peered through an open area in the shelving and spotted the cutest little Asian boy.
He said, "Oh, she looks Korean. I thought she was Korean like me."
I said, "She is Korean. She doesn't speak Korean though, do you?"
He said that he did and I asked him to say "Hi" in Korean which he proceeded to do.
I said "Thank You" in Korean and he appeared shocked.
"You speak Korean???"
I explained that I had learned a few words before I went to pick Delaney up in Korea.
"oh, was she adopted?"
I told him that she was. We proceeded to talk about Korea, his family, Kimchee, etc.
He was only 6 years old and had been born in America. He said that he had never been to Korea but had heard that it was a neat and popular place.
He was absolutely adorable!!!
