Last week while we were picking up some children to return them home after a parent visit, the worker remarked that 3 out of the 4 were really good and she was so proud of them. (The fourth one was overtired and miserable!)
So the other driver asked the worker to please tell that to little 7 year old Rosie who was riding in her car because she doesn’t get to hear that where she lives with her aunt. She is kind of an unwanted child there, always given less attention and things than the other biological kids who live there.
The worker told Rosie what she told us and the little girl got a big happy grin on her face. As they drove away, Rosie told the other driver,
“That made my heart smile.”
