Abandoned but not Forsaken. The Testimony of Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache)

posted on , under Stories

SoapyDollar-sm

A young, pregnant teenager leaves her reservation for the city and gives birth to her child. She returns home alone, after leaving her baby in an alley. The child is found by a fortune teller who takes him home and passes him around for the first five years of his life. Finally, she places him in a home for delinquent and homeless boys. You could say that life had not begun well for this little boy who came to be known as “Soapy”. But God had plans for this abandoned child that no one could have ever imagined. If you need to be reminded today that God is bigger than your circumstances, and unhindered by your past, this story will encourage and inspire you. Listen. Enjoy. Share.
