Abandonment

January 8, 2007

My maternal grandmother died and left this little girl behind. She is the youngest of five. A boy who died shortly after birth and three older sisters. When their mother died – they were separated – the two oldest sent to another state to stay with relatives and the two youngest left behind.

It is the work of my life to break this cycle of being unmothered. I wrote about this a few years ago and seeing this photo reminds me of the importance of this work – Warming the Stone Child.
