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

baby hand with flower

Soapy Dollar is a Mescalero Apache who was abandoned at birth on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  After being picked up by a fortune teller and passed around till he was five, he was placed in a ranch for homeless and delinquent boys.  This would become 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 man who was born rejected… or would his path be different?  What was Christmas like for a boy with no family? It might just surprise you… and encourage you.  Got 15 minutes? Listen to his story and then pass it on.

    I was raised most of my childhood in an orphanage….it does affect a person to be raised without a family or people you can depend on or that love and support you but it can be done and it can be a happy fulfilling life
