Sat in the hotel lobby yesterday morning waiting for Amy and her lovely family to come down to breakfast, and CNN was on. Horror after horror repeated and repeated: 2-year-old stabbed to death, 13-year-old's body found, mom attempted to kill 6- or 7-year old. Finally there was a piece about some New Jersey social service agency that had gotten top-notch professional photographers involved in taking photos of kids in the foster care system in hopes of attracting adopters. But even that depressed me. We are so image-oriented that we have to use eye-candy to get people to have compassion on needy kids.
Then at the picnic after worship I got to see the triplets -- a hard to place trio adopted by a St. Peter family about a year and a half ago. I also happened to be visiting St. Peter in October 2003 the Sunday those babies were baptized. I tried today to think of any other event I've ever witnessed that was so beautiful. I'll let you know if I ever think of one. Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 4/18/2005 11:40:00 PM
