We have made a special effort to discuss the adoption with Hannah and Joshua from the very beginning. Hannah understands the impact of having two new children in the home and she understands more of the details of how the adoption process works. Joshua on the other hand basically just knows that he might be getting a brother to play with. Never the less, we continue to discuss the adoption with Joshua to better prepare him for the transition that we will all be going through. My wife informed me that while talking with Joshua yesterday she discovered that he didn't quite understand what we meant by saying that we would be "getting" his new brothers or sisters. It seems that Joshua thought that we would be "getting" his new siblings via US mail. That's right, he thought they would be coming wrapped in a box and delivered to the house. I guess we need to explain this a little more.
