See this little chickie?
Isn’t she the cutest thing ever?
She’s happy as can be because her mama knows what kinds of feelings and thoughts are floating around in that precious little mind. Her mama is savvy because she’s read every adoption book she can get her hands on.
She knows the right time and place for conversations and looks for real-life situations to teach her daughter adoption truths about her sweet little self.
