The Day I Became a Big Brother

This past week, Jameson's teacher gave an assignment for all the kids to write one paragraph about a photograph of themselves. It always takes Jamey a little while to get going on these writing assignments but once he does start rolling, he usually does a pretty good job. Here's how this one turned out . . .

The Day I Became a Big Brother

By Jameson Muntz

When I got up that morning, I wasn’t in Oregon. I was in China. It was that morning, the day we were to get MelodyJoy. The tour guide drove us to the orphanage and we went in the building. I didn’t feel very excited until I saw parents walking out of the room with babies in their arms. Then I realized what I should be feeling. Mom said that when she touched my back, she felt me trembling. After we received MelodyJoy, I was near tears of happiness (near tears of happiness). I was happy that I finally had a younger sibling. When I went to bed that night, I was still in China, but something was different. There was a baby in the hotel room.
