Special Young Woman

Sunday was a special day for this young woman. She was baptized and we celebrated her 21st birthday with dinner at Ramsi's. I have known Anita since she was in 5th grade. She is one of the many girls I have mentored thru Girl Scouts. After she aged out of Girl Scouts we continued to stay close. Her family -- I have nothing good to say about them so I won't say anything. Anita is strong and determined to succeed. She has hit more than her share of bumps in the road. I went with her Sunday morning to her church as she committed her life to God. Sad that her family didn't show but that's not unusual. It was the first time I was in an all black church -- Amen Brother. I'm proud of you Anita.
