Adoption Explained by a Six Year Old


Mommy and Daddy needed a baby, and I needed a family, and they filled out paperwork, and blah, blah, blah and here I am.”

.. A six year old’s re-play to his mom (after his teacher told Mommy to be sure to ask him exactly how he told the story) of how he explained his adoption to his Sunday school class.

He was adopted from Russia as a baby.  The family now have a second son from Russia, and are “expecting” a new baby from China soon. 

God bless all parents who “need a baby, and find babies who need a family, and fill out paperwork and blah, blah, blah,” and make little babies who need a home their very own!

    That’s wonderful. And BTW, your pizelle make would work just as well, I’m pretty sure!

  4. Sandra says:

    Mrs4444 — Thanks. Hmmm. I guess that IS the way you spell pizelle. I should have taken the time to check! 🙂 (Can you tell, I haven’t made them in a while?)

    That is just perfect!

    Makes me think of my adoption story…

    God wanted a daughter, and I needed a Savior, so He sent His Son into the world and there’s 66 books of paperwork explaining the rest, and here I am!

  6. Sandra says:

    I LOVE that, Beth! What a perfect comparison! Thank you.

  7. Hilary says:

    It’s the “blah, blah, blah” part that’s particularly tender. 😉 Gotta love six-year olds! 🙂

  8. Sandra says:

    Hilary — That’s the part that charmed me too — that he is that confident with himself and his adoption, that he would rattle the story off like that!

  9. Lynda says:

    That’s so cute and funny … Sounds exactly like my classroom of six-year-olds!

    • Sandra says:

      Lynda — Are you old enough to remember Art Linkletter’s show “Kids Say The Darnest Things”? I remember it was fascinating because you would see the wheels turning in a little mind and then be treated to a really original thought coming out of his mouth!
