“Today I had my first family planning lesson at school”
announced seven year old Sarah.
Her mother, very curious asked ” oh..How did it go?”
“I nearly died of shame” complained Sarah.
“Peter from next door says the stork brings babies.”
“Mary my friend said that you can buy babies at the Orphanage”
“John in my class says that you can buy babies at the hospital”
“Mathew, a doctor’s son said that his father says that you can make babies in a test-tube”
Her mother answered laughingly ” But that’s no reason to be ashamed”.
“No…but I cannot tell them that we were so poor that you and dad has to make me yourselves!”
