A girl adopted from China shares her story.

Image (c) 2011, by Karla Dorman.

My name is Snow Mei Elzabeth Adkins.  I am ten years old.  I live with my family in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin.  I am in the fourth grade at Canon Del Rio Elementary School; my teacher is Ms. Adkins.

I have two brothers (Toby and Tyler, who are six and eight) and two sisters (Gracie and Ella, who are twelve and four).  I'm the second oldest in the family, and the only one who is adopted.  I was adopted when I was a baby; I was adopted from China.   My real mommy decided that she didn't want me, so she surrendered me to an orphanage.  

I don't remember that part, of course, but this is what my adoptived mommy told me.  I'd like to go to China, to see the country where I was born; I think that would be very interesting.  I used to have questions about being adopted, but now I think I have accepted it pretty well; I no longer have any problems with it.  I'm proud to be adopted 'cause it shows that someone loved me enough to take me in as their own.  I think that is pretty neat!

I am fairly short for my age and as skinny as a rail.  I have long, straight black hair, dark-brown slanted eyes that are almond-shaped, a smallish, snub nose, and pretty bow lips; my best features are my hair and my eyes, as well as my lips.  I love to wear purple a lot; purple so happens to be my favorite color.  I am not bad looking at all.

I am a typical preteen girl.  I love to talk on the phone with my friends, play with friends during recess, after school, or on the weekends, dance and listen to the latest rock hits, look at celebrity magazines and see the latest hairstyles and fashions (not that I would be caught dead in some of them, mind you ... ), sing, watch "American Idol" and "The Voice" on TV, read (I read just about anything I can get my hands on!), write stories or poems, play soccer, softball, or badminton, and go swimming.

When I grow up, I'd like to become president of the United States.  I think I could do a much better job than the guy who is in office now; my parents can't stand Barack Obama, and I can't either.  He's done so much in four years to mess this country up badly; I fear for the future of our once-great nation ....

I am very active in current events; it's reality, folks, and sometimes I like to get away from the celebrity news, so I study the news and try to keep current on what's going on in the world today.  It can be very disturbing at times, but at the same time, it can be very interesting.

Well, I have to get up so I can get ready for school.  I will write in here again another day.  Until then, this is Snow Adkins saying so long; take care and God bless!

~Snow.  :)
