Till Tara came along, my circle of love was intense but restricted–to my immediate family. Everyone else received supportive and honest, yet restrained affection. I was the kind who had difficulty holding my own baby in a dirty diaper let alone a stranger’s.
And then came Tara: Abandoned at the hospital and cared for by Erik and May-Louise, short-term volunteers. When they left, there was no one to take car of her and the Holy Spirit gave me no peace until I picked her up and took her home.
She came into my arms and taught me how to love better. Today she is in Australia with her new family; but she’ll always be part of mine too.
