Billie and Tillie were delighted when finally their long wait to adopt a baby came to an end.
The adoption centre called and told them they had a wonderful Russian baby boy and the couple took him without hesitation.
On the way home from the adoption centre, they stopped by the local college so they each could enrol in night courses.
After they filled out the form, the registration clerk inquired, “Whatever 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!”
