I was like....
25 YEARS!!!?????? Really????
Yes, I guess I was 10 years old when I wanted a Cabbage Patch Doll for my birthday!
And yes, that does mean I'm 35 almost 36!!!
OOOO I FEEL SO OLD!!!!!
I'm almost tempted to buy the cute African American newborn! It's so sweet!!!
You see, when I was 10, I wanted a black baby!
Not a doll mind you, but a real life black baby!
I have always wanted to be a mother!!!!
I'm not sure why, but my parents freaked a little because this white little girl wanted a black baby, so they improvised...
There was a lady who made dolls in our church and they had her make me my very own African American homemade Cabbage Patch looking doll. (I would take a picture of her, but she is up in the attic in some box!) She wasn't a newborn at all, almost weighing 10 pounds, but she was a black baby.
My parents made sure that I knew that this would be the only black baby I ever had!
I'm so embarrassed to even write that!
Because my heart is so not there and has never been there!
I'm not claiming that I'm not prejudice, because I honestly believe that we can not grow up and live in America and not have some prejudice within us. I pray that as the Holy Spirit grows and changes me that that would lessen and that Christ's love would flow through me and out of me!
I love being in a church with families that adopt no matter the color of skin. I love being able to be a part of their families! The picture of adoption and the things that I have learned from these families has been wonderful.
25 years! That seems like an eternity ago!!! ;>)
