The Boy, the Girl, and the Heart

Once upon a time in a school in England, the pupils were looking through the family album of a little boy in their classroom. The children noticed the boy looked very different and had another hair colour than all other family members.

“You’re adopted!” laughed one of the kids. “You’re adopted!” and awe filled the whole room.

“What does it mean to be adopted?” asked the boy.

“I am adopted too” said a little girl from the back of the classroom.

“What do you mean “adopted?” asked the boy one more time.

“It means” the little girl continued, “you grew in your mother’s heart, instead of her tummy.”
