Sisters of Circumstance Published

A few months ago I submitted an article I wrote to the Healing Garden journal, a Michigan based wellness magazine, about my daughter Ava and her LBF, little best friend. They are running a series on globalization.

I've written about LBF here at the blog now and again. She and Ava play quite a bit together and do have a special bond. I am in constant wonder with regards to how the universe guided my daughter to meet another little girl in China in a fancy hotel conference room after coming from less than auspicious beginnings and then end up growing up together a world away in America, living only a few miles apart. I know first hand Ava and her LBF are not the only ones...I read much more amazing stories of Chinese siblings meeting in America and Chinese children caring for each other in orphanages and then meeting again after adoption all the time. These stories inspire me and are a testament to the strength of the human spirit.

This story, Sisters of Circumstance, is not particularly awe inspiring but it is a true one of how my little girl has the amazing gift of friendship in her life. Only time will tell as they age and move on to separate schools and separate interests next year but I do hope they maintain their love for each other.

Please feel free to click on the article if you'd like. Click Table of Contents and then Sisters of Circumstance in the Life and Living section.
