a glass of water

Both ladies, A and B, found out that they were nearly given away to be adopted by another family.

A still feels a sense of rejection by her family. This contributes to her depression sometimes.

B feels that there is a higher purpose for her not to be given away. She thinks she is to be a blessing to her current family.

Both remind me of looking at a glass filled with water. One sees it as half empty and the other as half full.

P/S By the way,. one of the ladies mentioned is me. Guess which one?


  • People here in the West will find it hard to understand that once there had been a "Chinese culture" to give away their very own babies, especially girls. Sickening but true.

    Anyway OK I'll go for B.
    God bless!

  • Parents who feel they can't afford to give a new born baby the life he/she deserves often sacrifice their babies to a better home. They don't give up their babies without tears and heartaches.

    I know because my parents adopted my youngest sister when I was 12. We went to her broken down hut to pick her up. She had no clothes on her, just a towel. Her mum and sisters were crying but at the end of the day, they wanted her to have a better life, a brighter future though one needs to understand, no future is secure.

    Today, my sister is happily married, lives in Ausralia where my parents are. She has a good life and though she knows she is adopted, she considers my parents to be her real parents. She knows she is loved.

  • I hopped from waterman's blog. If I am not mistaken, I think you have dropped by my blog last year. Sorry, I forgot to reciprocate your comment last time. As your blog name suggests, I like your post;it's simple, precise, concise and thought provoking. I don't have to guess which one you are because Christ's love dwells in us. To tell you the truth, I was nearly given away and in fact, also nearly not given the chance to be born because of poverty, but I bore no bitterness towards my parents. I am the first to believe in Jesus. Both my late parents have come to accept Christ years before they went to be with the Lord.
    God bless and Have a Blessed Christmas.

  • You must be the second lady - you are a blessing to many, not only your current home!

    Keep it up.

    BTW, I like your tall wishes for Christmas and 2008!

    Blessed Christmas.
