Twenty Reasons: Fifteen

It’s pouring rain here today. As my middle child stood out in the back yard, holding an umbrella over himself and our dog so that Miss High-Maintenance would go potty, I thought of another thing we love about our girl.

She loves animals. She helps take care of the chickens and livestock at the orphanage, and when we Skype she always says, “I want to see my dog!” So we call the dog over and hold the camera down, and Pearl just lights up with joy over seeing her and knowing that soon she’ll have her own pet dog.

My sisters and mother-in-law are also huge animal fans, so Miss Pearl is going to fit right in.

Who knows? Maybe she’ll even enjoy taking her turn with the dog and the umbrella on rainy days?
