The Littlest Client #8


"Katie, go join the other kids in the lobby. I'll be out there as soon as I'm finished talking with Mr. Randolph."

Katie nodded and ran to the door, then turned around and waved at me and said, "Goodbye, Mr. Randolpe!"

I smiled, "Goodbye, Katie. I'll be in touch."

I turned to Barbara, "Well, Miss...?"

"Just call me Barbara, Mr. Randolph."

"Then call me Jake. Tell me, do you know anything about Katie's father?"

"Not much," she said. "He brought her to the orphanage in the middle of the night when she was only two. And he left her there."

    Yeah, this one is kinda sad. I'm trying not to focus too much on that, though, and more on the fact that she's on a mission to get her father back.

    She sounds a feisty young woman that Katie! (Although if you check out the origin of the word feisty, maybe she isn’t!)
