“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” -― St. Francis of Assisi

Hey everyone in blog land,

Yesterday afternoon I went looking around the net and found this:


This girl has been adopted by a family here in the US - and yet she is not being allowed to come to join them by our government. Why - because of TB screening, the catch is she has already had TB in the past and the treatment for it. Yet because of the scarring, she has to wait more months?

I can honestly can see both sides of this issue, but I am leaning toward the family. This girl has had this, she no longer does, nor is she contagious or a threat. I realize that we can't allow laws to change for one child, but this isn't a sick child, I think? Or am I wrong? I also know that TB is not a condition to be messed with.

Anyway I thought it was worth passing their blog along.
