So I mentioned the other week that we had a kung fu party after we watch Kung Fu Panda 2. Well for the past few weeks I’ve had a post idea half completed about some things I’ve learned from Kung Fu Panda 2. But first you need to know this. For the longest time in the back of my mind I thought that it was terrible that Lily’s parents abandoned her.
Makes sense, right?
Well recently I’ve been thinking of a different scenario. If you remember, in Kung Fu Panda 2, Po’s parents leave him behind when their village is attacked. Not because they wanted too, but because they had too.
And the thought that has begun to develop in my mind is this “maybe these parents didn’t want to give their kid up" or "maybe it was the hardest decision they ever had to make."
I don't know the reasons for why Lily's (or Ellie and Sammie's) families abandoned them.
I wish that I could tell them that we love their child. That Lily will go to bed tonight full. That she will wake up and have clothes to wear. But most importantly that she is surrounded by people that love and care for her.
Maybe I should also re-read my post on not judging others because we don't always know the whole story...
What are your thoughts?
