Mark and I have known Itedra (and her two brothers) since they were adopted by a couple in our church. We taught them in Sunday school. I taught Itedra during our church's Purity! sleepovers.
And yesterday, it was her day to SHINE at her graduation open house. It was great to see her Mama, friends and family. Wonderful to reminisce at her growing up years. Itedra is sugar and sunshine: God's very own sweetness and light.
She has plans to go away to college and maybe enter into full time ministry. I pray God's best for her now and always. Don't be a stranger, T. See ya on FB. :D
