The Throwaway Baby

June 22, 2000

Before deciding to go to preaching school, I was living on the edge of the Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas panhandle. It was here that national news events inspired me to write a story called the Throwaway Baby. I heard just one too many news reports about babies being found in trash cans. I’m not sure why I thought little kids would want to hear about this, but I wrote it anyway. Just one of many stories filed away as a learning moment. Back in our country home, it was wonderful out there! 

Lesson learned: Life isn’t so precious to some people.
