Zoe has been squirreling away fortune cookie fortunes in the cup holder of her booster seat for a while without me realizing it. When we drove to the store this morning, she pulled them out and entertained us with them:
"Endurance and perseverance will be rewarded."
"You will take a long journey and find your fortune."
"Someone is speaking well of you right now."
Is it my imagination, or is there a bit of a theme here?
Then the last one --
"Your dearest wish will come true."
Of course I asked: "Zoe, what's your dearest wish?"
Zoe replies, in that duh-mom's-dumb voice, "To meet my birth parents."
