Kids Writing About Adoption

We had the opportunity to have a "writer's workshop" on adoption today since school was cancelled. Miss Bookworm's writing is in the previous post. Here are what the others had to say.

What Little Foot had to say.

I am going to Ethiopia and I bet we will have a good time there. I can see Ethiopia right now. They have dirt roads. They have fresh grass, but a little of it is dead. Some people are weak and some people are healthy.

(Editor's Note: The square in the picture above represents "all of Ethiopia" and the brown is a dirt road.)

What Buddy had to say.

When I think about adopting, I think about the kids. It might be hard to know when they have to go to the bathroom. They are probably going to be amazed at how much food we have. It will be about a month for them to learn our language. They will be scared because they don't know us in person.

What ED had to say.

Excited About Adopting!

I am excited about adopting because it will be cool to have two Ethiopian children in our household. They are really cute. I am also a little nervous because I don't know how to act around them. It will be hard getting used to having them around and communicating with them. Our family is so different. "We are marching to the beat of a different drummer."

Kayla loved Buddy's comment about the bathroom! She is still laughing because that was also one of her concerns!

It is interesting seeing life through the eyes of a child. They probably have been somewhere before and did not know how to ask about going to the bathroom!
