"What It Means to Be Adopted"
Teacher Debbie Moons first graders were discussing a picture of a
family. One little boy in the picture had a different color hair than
the other family members. One child suggested that he was adopted and
a little girl named Jocelynn Jay said, I know all about adoptions
because I was adopted, What does it mean to be adopted?
asked another child. It means, said Jocelynn, that you grew
in your mommys heart instead of her tummy.
