The Smile

It is so difficult to go into a preschool and not see a baby smile (at all). It breaks my heart, especially knowing the story behind it.

I have watched this beautiful child for a year now and have only seen him smile once. There has been a sadness in this child’s face everyday.

This morning I shed tears of joy when I finally saw this child tap his little feet to the music and SMILE! When I blew the shofar for the class, his mouth was hitting the floor! I left the school on a high note today because positive changes have been made in his little life and he seems much happier.

A new year starts tomorrow night, and this child has a new beginning. Amen.
