|Annie, 6 years old, gets home from school. She had her first family planning lesson at school.|
Her mother, very interested, asks, How did it go?"
"I nearly died of shame!" She answers!
"Why?" Her Mother asked.
Annie said, "Kate from down the road, says that the stork brings babies.
Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage.
Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital."
Her mother answers laughingly, "But that's no reason to be ashamed?"
"No... well that's how I felt when I had to tell them that we were so poor.... that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!"
