A Smile and a Kid

Smiling in Joy
Smiling in Joy

Have you ever seen someone smile so hugely that you can't help but smile right along with them, even if you don't understand the words being spoken?  Well, that happened to me not to long ago, while in Zimbabwe, thanks to you.

You see, some of the goats we've given away are having kids.  Some give birth to twins and some to singletons, but each birth is welcome.  Most celebrated are the female kids because it means that milk will continue to be provided for a family and that the flock will continue to grow.

I visited a family who wanted nothing more than to show me a brand new kid.  And, no words were needed in order to feel the happiness felt by the owner of the baby female goat.  The lady, who is raising 3 AIDS orphans, was so proud to show off the new little one and I thought you'd like to meet her, too.
