24

Education continued as we spent June in Friesland
basking in Ted's relatives' hospitality,
my first and only time outside North America.

Branching out from art to teaching reading and writing
I commuted weekly to SUNY Oswego,
tutored and subbed at East Palmyra Christian.

We were eager to grow our family by adoption;
the social worker mentioned hard-to-place children.
What? Who? Why? Handicapped, black or biracial
and/or those more than a year old.

On Rhonda's second birthday we brought her home,
my life's best and most divinely directed decision.
