The adoption center called, and told them that they had adopted a wonderful Russian baby boy.
The couple took him without hesitation.
On the way home from the adoption center, they stopped by the local college so they each could enroll in night classes.
After they filled out the forms, the registration clerk inquired, “What ever possessed you to study Russian?”
The couple said proudly, “We just adopted a Russian baby, and in a year or so he’ll start to talk. We just want to be able to understand him.”
