Adoption Blunders Continued

I have an update for my post Adoption Blunders in which I listed some common questions and statements that are presented to us because we are an adoptive family. I would like to add one today.

Number 5: Referring to my son as an "investment" because he'll definitely be good at sports, right?
This was said as a joke, but don't you think it might be offensive? Should I refer to your child as an "investment" because he belongs to a race that is stereotypically athletic? Sometimes it's the jokes that are the worst.
