Hi Madi, how was school today?
It was OK I guess.
Sounds like something's going on, wanna talk about it?
It's Joey at school, he keeps askinhg me where my "real" mom is.
I told him my adopted Mom is my REAL mom.
But he just kept saying, "No, I mean your real mom!"
Aw Honey, you were right. Our adopted mom is our REAL mom.
Hey Madi, we all have birth moms, but our real mom is OUR adopted Mom.
She takes care of us and everything we need.
What's going on Madi?
Nell, I never knew my birth mom, so
I just wondered why she gave me away?
OH! She loved you VERY much Madi, you and Martin,
but she was very young and knew she was not ready to be a mom.
She loved you enough to make sure you had a family to take care of you.
So here you are!
Hey Madi, what's up?
Oh hi Layla, I was just telling them about Joey at school asking who my REAL mom was.
Joey Johnson? Oh, don't let Joey bother you, he just likes to make trouble!
Just remember, being adopted is special because
we have so many people who love us!
Thanks I feel better.
