Yesterday Jack was watching a Disney film called "Rescuers." The movie is about a little orphan girl named Penny, and the mice who set out to rescue her.
I told Jack that Penny didn't have a mom and dad, and I explained that his sister in Ethiopia also doesn't have a mom or dad.
Jack's face fell for a moment, and he was quiet. Then suddenly his eyes brightened and he smiled.
"I have an idea, Mom!" he said. "How about YOU be my sister's mommy, and Dad can be her Daddy?!"
Jack beamed with success at his revolutionary idea.
Great idea, little man. Great idea.
