An Orphan’s Christmas – Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache)

posted on , under Stories

Cabin in the snow on a starlit night

Soapy Dollar is a Mescalero Apache who was abandoned at birth in the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. After being picked up by a fortune teller and passed around, at the age of five he was placed in a ranch for homeless and delinquent boys. This would be home for the rest of his youth. As an orphan, his memories and perspective of Christmas are different than most. Would bitterness and resentment mark the young man who was born rejected No, in fact, it’s quite a different story… an amazing one. And Christmas was a part of it.
