"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.
