A couple was delighted when finally their long wait to adopt a baby came
to an end. The adoption center called and told them they had a wonderful
Japanese baby boy, and 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 courses. After they filled out the form, the
registration clerk inquired, "What ever possessed you to study Japanese?"
The couple said proudly, "We just adopted a Japanese baby and in a year or
so he'll start to talk. We just want to be able to understand him".
