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!’
