I was looking through some of the "funny, yet deep" emails that friends have sent to me and I found this one. Now its only part of the email, I'll share more of it as I find parts that relate to blogs/bloggers that I follow. This one is for Denise from "There's always room for One More", as well as every other adoptive mom out there that had room for one more.
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!'
Somehow we seem to have a whole new generation of really "smart" kids to hopefully get us moving in the right direction again. Somehow when I was in the first grade I don't think I could have come up with this explanation.
