Angel in the Wilderness

Karen O’Leary

Karen O’Leary

A rescued child
Near death
Getting nutrient supplements
Extremely delicate

Internal struggle
not knowing the legalities

Trying to keep 
Her out of foster care
Emergency privileges granted

Wading through red tape
In family services
Lost child not found
DNA without matches
Elusive identity
Red tape of adoption
Nearly denied by a judge 
Even though the couple
Shares in the desire…
She becomes Grace, their girl
