Bane or Blessing

! Baby Abby Found !
What a headline. This small newborn had been taken in a violent act from her mother and claimed by the second woman as her own newborn who had been stillborn. Everyone was looking and wondering what 'really' happened. The mother had been attacked violently. What a frightening story...but the ending is good.
Infants can be really hard to identify. Baby Abby had a birthmark on her forehead. The woman who took her tried to cover it with makeup--but it was discovered. Baby Abby returned home to her family.
What some might have thought was an 'ahhh too bad about that birthmark' was the very thing that saved her.
Bane or blessing. Blessing
Perhaps we may be slower to judge for someone else --or for ourselves what is a bane or a blessing.
God abide
