I have been following the blog of Anne Poulsen, who was recently in Uganda. This post stopped both Frank and me in our tracks. Really and truly. Here’s what Anne wrote about this girl she met there…
I don’t know her name. I don’t know her whole story.
I will tell you what I know.
~she was in tears as we gave her food
~the tears streamed down her face the entire meal as she sat with her young sibling
~she was taking only small bites leaving a majority of the meal for her sibling
~her parents are dead
~she has other siblings, 4 younger siblings total, I believe
~she is only 9 years old.
