By Beth Beutler
"What is Thanksgiving?" my teacher asked. I thought about that for a minute. It was a lot of things to me. I started to think about last Thanksgiving and stopped listening to my teacher talking.
2 This will be my second Thanksgiving. My parents adopted me a little more than a year ago when I was five. They had traveled to China to get me. I had been shown a picture of my new mother and father before they arrived. That morning, the teacher at the children's home gave me a new dress. My new mama and papa were on their way!
3 I was told that their names were Mr. and Mrs. Dawkins. They would take me home with them to live in America! I remember how they walked into the room and looked around at all the children. My teacher took my hand and led me to them.
4 My teacher said, "Mr. and Mrs. Dawkins, this is Ching Lee." Mrs. Dawkins started to cry. I wasn't sure why. I thought she didn't like me! Later, I found out that she was just so glad to finally meet me. Mrs. Dawkins knelt down and held out her arms. I gave her a quick hug. She smelled nice.
5 The next few minutes there was a lot of talking. After all the talking was done, my teacher gave me a hug. She said, "I'll miss you, Ching Lee. Be a good girl! Enjoy your new life!"
