a scared child from ecuador

There was a small girl from Ecuador
Who had never been to the States before.
And she knew not a word
Of the language she heard
And her fear you just could not ignore

looking at our new house guest

  1. Just give her a hug and say: “no te preocupes, te vamos a ayudar” ….now go look it up. : )

  2. Thank you, Ines! We had another family (4 children) over this afternoon, so there were 11 kids running around. After a few moments, she broke out of her sadness and was playing with the rest of the kids.

    “you do not worry, we are going to help you”


  3. There are scared children every where. She is lucky to be with you and your family.

  4. I can’t wait to meet her. 🙂

  5. My Mom tells me that when I was in Kindergarten, I was good friends with a little girl that didn’t speak English.
    I remember her well … but I didn’t remember that she didn’t speak English.
    I think when you’re small enough, words don’t mean as much as hugs, smiles and giggles.

  6. Teresa… thank you.

    Myla… isn’t she an angel? 🙂

    Sarah… we are finding this to be very true!

  7. Oh, I just love limericks. You guys are awesome. Love is fear’s worst enemy.
    🙂 Kim
