What It Means to Be Adopted

From A 3rd Serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul

What It Means to Be Adopted

Teacher Debbie Moon’s first-graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had 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’m adopted.”

“What does it mean to be adopted?” asked another child.

“It means,” said Jocelynn, “that you grew in your mother’s heart instead of her tummy.”
