Chalkboard

(no subject)

Hi Everybody. I haven't had a chance to get caught up on any of my posts and comments, I was just checking up on some mail and auctions and I'm about to go out. I was looking at foster care and adoption web pages, because I fantasize about adopting someday, and stumbled on this interesting transcript of a Nova show about a "wild' child, a little girl who had been severely abused by being kept in almost total isolation by her elderly parents. She was rescued about twenty years before the show starts and the program follows her rehabilitation and aquisition of language, they also mention a little boy in France who just wandered naked out of the forest one day when he was twelve years old. It's an interesting read so I thought I'd share the link in case you have the time. What was the name of the play that the Jody Foster movie Nell was based on? I could look it up but I don't have the time. I'm going to try to catch the last hour and a half of my favorite swap meet. I'm interested in decorating ideas and things for my upcoming magazine shoot for mary Englebreit.

hugs,
Jacqui

I want this little dolly on ebay because it reminds me of the little girl I want to have someday. I don't think wanting a cute little Asian doll child is a good enough reason to adopt. It seems shallow and unfair to the child. I have to try to figure out what this is all about for me, then again it might just be a karmic thing. In either case I can't afford to buy this doll on ebay, it's at $100.00 dollars right now and ends in a few hours I think, oh well. Off I go. OH wait I ahve to remember to get tickets to see His Holliness the DL.
