Blog Carnival III: Zoe's Blankie
My mom told me about a blog carnival, where everyone blogs about the same topic, and I wanted to do that, too. The topic is special adoption pictures.
This is a picture of me and my favorite blankie. It's my favorite adoption picture because it's my favorite blankie since I was a baby. My mom brought the blanket to China to make me feel better since she knew everything was going to be different after I left the orphanage and I might be scared.
I don't remember that first day, but I think I must have been scared because I never saw American people before and I wasn't used to seeing other people around, just Mr, Gan, the director of the orphanage, and the nannies.
When I got home to America I sort of forgot about the special blankie, I just liked any blankie. But then when I was about 3 or 4, I saw this picture of me and the blankie in my scrapbook and I remembered! I ran to go find it and I haven't forgotten it since. It was special to me again, and I still love it. I sleep with it every night in my bed. It's special because it kind of tells me about when I was a baby, since I don't have anything from my birth parents but I have something from my forever mom.
Do you have anything special you had since you were a baby? If you do, please let me know!
