We thought this was some good wisdom from a 1st grader that our pastor shared with us this week.
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 another child.
"It means," said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!"
I love how children see things. Reminds me of when Jesus was talking, in Matthew 18:3, about seeing and receiving the Kingdom of heaven like a child.
