Browsing my social media today, this photo taken at One Family 4 years ago of a 9 year old Ella and a 5 year-old Billie popped up...
....and it took me back and got me thinking about family.
These two girls are sisters. They have completely different circumstances. Ella was born in the richest country in the world, Billie was born in the poorest. Ella lives with her parents and brother, Billie lives in an orphanage. They have different skin colors. They speak different languages…and yet, almost immediately, they became sisters. And, they still are.
To them, their differences are almost meaningless, because there’s love between them and love unites. This is why we do what we do. Because there is no “us” and “them.” There is only us. We are one family.
