I have a friend who is hoping to adopt a child in the near future. Jacob over heard us talking about a little boy. He stated that she shouldn't adopt any boys just a girl. Here is the conversation that followed:
M: Why should she only adopt a girl?
J: A girl will be with her forever and ever.
M: A boy would leave?
J: He would die.
M: What do you mean he would die?
J: Boys die when they get to be great grandpas.
M: Girls die too.
J: No they don't. They live forever.
I went on to explain that everyone dies some day but he wasn't willing to hear it. He continued to insist that boys die when they get old and girls don't.
