Have you ever fostered or adopted a little girl or boy?
Well, one day in October 2010, my wife, Eve, had two studs, Sammy and Kimbro. Since 2 was not enough she had decided to foster a little girl also. When she was brought home, she was so tiny about, 15 pounds at the most, only 5 years old, and, as you can imagine, frightened beyond words. Apparently her name was Minerva, and I welcomed her to our new home with open arms.
She was overwhelmed since the two of them were running all around trying to catch and sniff her. She couldn't hide from them as she was just as big, or actually small, as they were. I tried putting my hand out to let her know to come to me if she was being bothered. She, however, wasn't ready to come to me just yet and kept trying to get away. I was confused as to why she wouldn't come.
It was then when Eve gave me the terrifying news.
She relayed to me, this poor little girl was abused and that's why she was fostering her.
My heart sank!
I could not for the life of me, fathom how there could be anyone out there that would actually have the audacity to defile and violate such a precious innocent not to mention defenseless, little girl! Eve then said it was a man that did this.
"It was NO man!" I retorted.
"The only thing that could do such a heinous act is a DEMON!"
But if that wasn't enough, there was more to her tragic story,
the most distressing news of all.
This is what made my decision final!
It was what really burned me up inside above ALL else!
If the abuse wasn't already enough on this poor defenseless little girl,
it was the fact that she was actually left in a foreclosed home to perish.
My final decision was that she was no longer Minerva.
She was to be henceforth, MY Lil Mimi!
I could not risk having this lil girl fall into the hands of another wretch ever again!.
She was MINE FOREVER more!
However, the next morning the house was a little too quiet for my comfort. I looked around and everyone was gone! I checked my voicemail to see if she left me a message as to where she was going.
She said that she was taking Mimi back to get adopted!
Was I still sleeping and having my worst nightmare?
It just couldn't be!!
