Beauty and the Beast

My baby, Miss Darla  (in yellow), went to @pathachieve today and made a friend in Rosa. Okay, Rosa slept through it all…

The beauty I saw today was:

  • meeting this young mother who is soft spoken, kind, sweet and attentive to her baby (and mine)
  • holding her daughter who is a week younger than my own
  • watching the shelter staff interact with the family
  • seeing this mother talk to the other children in the shelter about babies, wipes, and little kid stuff
  • meeting a little boy who will get his own room and transitional housing tomorrow

but the Beast remains: Little kids are homeless. Some of them, like Rosa, are born into it.
