Afghan surprise

Somehow, she has survived. Abandoned along the side of a road in Afghanistan, a country of land mines and confusion, a newborn infant was found by Polish soldiers.  

I loved reading that the entire group of soldiers took that infant to the hospital, bought formula, bottles and a bib.

In a country mad with war, an unknown infant becomes a symbol of hope.

Finally, good news after days of on-going violence, fear and death.

We never know where we will find hope within the chaos and routine of our lives. Sometimes it is the most vulnerable people among us who offer strength, courage and renewal. Blessings, sweet child.
