Not surprising - I played with dolls and toy horses. I dreamed of growing up and having horses of my own. I drew pictures and painted them bright colors. I played games with my sister, mom and dad. Typical childhood fun. At least, for some...
As you know, Timothy and Cynthia are in the process of adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. This week, I found out a little more about our little girl's birth mother.
The birth mother of Baby E is a 17 year old widow who is working and caring for her 5 year old child while living with her widowed mother.
*whew* That information really set my mind to spinning. I have been thinking all week about the childhood I had and how different it is from Baby E's birth mother's life. Depressing? No. Because I know we can make a difference in the lives of people like Baby E and her birth mother.
Care to give up a Latte or two this week? Yep, just that much can make a big difference!
