I have this family that I've adopted. They live in MS. The mother was raped and got pregnant and was DF'd because of the 2-witness rule, etc., and even her own elder father wouldn't help her. Long story short, years have gone by, she had three more kids and now has a husband to boot. And she became a Christian a couple of years ago. However, she's had many, many years of extreme poverty and isn't much better off right now financially.
We adopted the four children for their birthdays. They always get plenty for Christmas from their church but don't get much, if anything for their birthdays. I thought I was going to be so smart. This is a black family and I'm always on the lookout for black dolls, etc., for the little girl, since most dolls I see are white. I found a black bust with actual black hair with a set of curlers, combs, etc., so the little girl could play beauty shop. I was so proud of myself thinking this would be the perfect gift. Her mother called this week to say she received the gift. Her daughter pulled it out of the box, screamed, threw it, and said, "my baby's body is missing!" I don't think she's going to play with it.
