Cute baby! No matter what he's called...
At least she didn't ask which country you adopted him from or simply asked "Where did you get him?"
I heard people in Asia say "half Japanese (or whatever), half American" to meaning that the person was half white. I tactfully corrected them, every time. Funny as I have met Asian-Americans married to Europeans and Asian-Americans with husbands and wives from their parents' country. I even had a Korean-American coworker whose husband was Korean-Japanese. Yeah, all they're kids are "half" American lol! (like the U.S. State Dept. gives out half passports).
I wonder how I'm going to act when I get the first "Where'd you get him?" question.
I doubt everyone is offended by the term Oriental. I was just taught, when I was younger, that it was inappropriate. And my DH reinforced that, although it's not like a horrible racial slur.
