"When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching — they are your family."

First graders were discussing a picture of a family. One boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other
members. One of the pupils 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.

'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy.'
