Every adoptive parents nightmare!

Better hope your adoptive child looks sufficiently like you if he or she decides to act up. Parents of a two-year-old found that out recently while flying out of Erie, PA.

According to airport authorities,
"The baby was screaming, 'Mommy, Mommy, Mommy,' and fussing, trying to get out of the hands of the woman holding her," he said. "I'm sorry they had to miss the flight, but I don't care if the baby was white, pink, blue or whatever color. Two people in particular voiced concern that the baby might not belong to them, and we had to check it out."

Really? You've never seen the "terrible twos" on an airplane before? You routinely demand that the parents of small children deplane so that you can check if the kid is "really theirs" if the kid is misbehaving? Exactly how many such cases have there been recently -- say in the last three years?
