have you seen her parents?

white gypsyOur children look kind of like this.

They aren’t as dirty…and don’t usually have little braids and colorful pieces of string tied in their hair…but they look kind of like this.

Blonde and Scandinavian…blue eyes.

This little girl was found in a gypsy camp .

She was found in a Roma camp in central Greece.

Here’s the story…

Now the authorities are looking for her parents.  According to the news reports, she only speaks Roma…so she must have been with the gypsies for a while.

It is such a cliché that “you might be stolen by the gypsies”.

“You better watch out…”

But apparently, it really does happen.

I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a gypsy caravan in our “neck of the woods”.  It’s not something that I’ve ever wondered or worried about.

But I can see why a little blonde kid would be appealing to a bunch of gypsies.  I understand the appeal.

We like them.

We love ours.

I just don’t think I’ve ever had any compulsion to load up the wagon and go out to steal any more of them.

Our house is small enough as it is.

This little girl must have really stood out in a camp of dark-haired Gypsies.

I guess that this is one of those situations where the more you know, the more you have to be nervous about.

I know where all of our children are. Two of them are asleep in our house. One’s away at college.

So I know that this little blonde gypsy isn’t ours, for sure.

But I haven’t thought about gypsy abduction as being something to worry about for a while now.

It hasn’t been on my “angst radar” before reading this news story.

Jenny said that there’s a meteor shower this morning…but it’s too cool and I’m still feeling a little “under the weather”…so I don’t know if I’ll go outside to try to see any rocks burning up on their way to earth.

There is so much that’s happening all the time.

It’s kind of hard to wrap your head around all of it.

I hope they find this little girl’s parents.
