A word on Adoption: Out of the mouths of Babes

Teacher Debbie Moon’s first graders were
discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture
had a different hair color than the other members. One of her
students suggested that he was adopted.
   A little girl said, ‘I know all about
adoption, I was adopted..’
 
   ‘What does it mean to be adopted?’, asked
  another child.
 
     ‘It means’, said the girl, ‘that you grew
in your mommy’s heart instead of her tummy!’
