It has been a rainy day here in Atlanta. But we really needed the rain.
I met with my young expectant Mom today and we had lunch together. I took her to eat at Red Lobster. We had a good time and the food was great. Afterwards I took her with me to Clarkston. I needed to check on the African Mom that I taught last week. She was very glad to see us. Her newborn baby girl was sleeping. I brought both families a gift bag of fruit. I am not sure that Mom is getting enough to eat. She is very tired and weak. I am concerned about her. The baby looked good but Mom says she crys alot. I had a hard time communicating with her since she speaks very little English. I didn't have a translator today so I am not sure she understood some of the questions I was asking her about herself and the baby. I do know she is very lonely. I love what I do but sometimes it makes me sad not to be able to do more for the people that I meet.
