DEAR ABBY. Our 19-year-old daughter is a college sophomore, living at school.
Recently, while in her old room at home, I came across a pharmacy bag containing contraceptive supplies with a receipt dated 2 1/2 years ago. At that time, she was dating a 19-year-old guy, with whom she recently broke up (six months ago) after a three-year relationship.
She’s a great kid, well-adjusted, always obeyed her curfew, and doesn’t drink or do drugs. Should I just forget about this and be glad she at least took responsibility for protecting herself? (She has never been willing to discuss sex with me.)
I have not mentioned this to her father. Should I? I feel a bit like a traitor keeping it from him, but he is her father. Thank you for any advice you can offer.
DEAR MOTHER: Your daughter is to be commended for her (a) maturity and (b) sense of responsibility regarding contraception.
If it will ease your mind to have a private conversation with your daughter about your “discovery,** do so. But if sharing the information with your husband could possibly sour their relationship, please reconsider. The past is history.
DEAR ABBY: You recently published a letter signed “‘Real’ Adoptive Parent" from a mother who was upset by insensitive questions. My wife and I are the parents of three girls: one, an adopted Korean-born child; another, a biracial child; and one who is our daughter by birth.
We belong to a local adoptive-parent support group where we have heard every imaginable story about encounters with prejudice and insensitivity. We have also learned how’ to handle such questions.
When asked what seems to be an
impertinent question, it is best to assume that there was no harm intended.
For example, one woman asked if my Korean daughter was “mine.” When I responded, “Yes,” she asked, “How much did she cost?”
When asked, “What happened to her ‘real’ mother?” a good response would be, “I have been married to her for more than 20 years.”
When asked, “Are they your natural children?” I say. “We don’t use any preservatives or artificial ingredients.”
By answering good-naturedly, and with a little humor, parents can communicate two very important lessons to their children: how they can one day handle such questions, should the need arise; and at the same time demonstrate that since the parents are not embarrassed by their family, neither should the chi-dren be.

PlumeFirst In the Hearts of New Braunfels.
For more than 20 years, the Baptist Memorial Hospital System has provided first-class cardiac care services to the community. Our Baptist AirLite helicopter transports cardiac patients in an intensive care ens imminent — a first in South Texas.
Baptist Medical Center was the first private hospital in San Antonio to provide a unit dedicated exclusively to the care of heart patients. We were among the first to perform open heart surgeries and heart catheterizations.
In fact, doctors at Baptist Medical Center have performed thousands of open heart procedures in the past 20 years. And last year alone, they performed more
coronary bypass operations than any other private hospital in San Antonio. That makes the Baptist team one of the most experienced in the state.
Now that same experience is available to patients in northeast Bexar County and surrounding communities. The Cardiac Care Center at Northeast Baptist Hospital — a new cath lab, a new operating room. Expanded surgical intensive care and telemetry units. A sophisticated minim asive cardiology lab and angiography suite. Complete facilities dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and education of patients with cardiovascular disease.
Another first. Another choice.
