Hello, my name is Olive. I’m 9. I was born in China. My birth mom put me on a doorstep. Someone saw me. They called the police. I was put in an orphanage. My first foster mom went to the hospital because I had a cleft lip and palate. The second foster mom took care of me until I was adopted. My family gave me a stuffed bunny and some other gifts. I was adopted at age 4. I was scared because I spoke in Chinese and my parents spoke English. Adoption affected me by learning about God, making friends, and learning about the world. Today I live with my 4 siblings and my mom and dad.
