The following story is an abstract from an email someone forwarded to me. It contained touching stories, in which childern were the main characters. This one spoke to me the most.
"Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were
discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture
had a different hair colour 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
'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew
in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!' "
This is it! These few lines say it all. It was enough for the child within to rush and make a wish. Guess what she wished for...
