Special needs adoption from a Jewish perspective.

Special needs adoption from a Jewish perspective.

Wednesday, May 23, 2012


Another day, another child on Renee's challenge.  This one is Britta:

Britta is HIV+, but with proper medical care that should not hold her back at all!
See some other futures for Britta here.

I imagine her as the youngest child in a family full of boys.  I see her chasing a ball and exploring a muddy creek with her brothers.  I see her building model airplanes and flying a kite on a sunny spring day.  I see her body surfing on the beach and climbing trees to find robin eggs.  I see her putting a polished apple on the teacher's desk.... with a worm in it!

And then I see her parents trying oh-so-hard to bring out that girly-girl they thought they were adopting....

 A frilly Shabbos dress, pretty bows in her hair.....  Yeah, she can dig that too!


Actually, who she REALLY reminds me of is Matilda (who was also adopted!), but that's copyrighted...... Are you her Miss Honey?
