The Last Spirit Child
She was cast away from the tribe that she was born into because the situation of her birth dictated that she must not be allowed to live amongst the tribe by their primeval custom and tradition. She was believed to be a dark spirit's child. She was adopted by Christian parents and was raised with unconditional love and affection. But there were shadows that continually trailed her. So often, it's not physical harm that pierced her soul the most. In the mishmash of the good and the bad, the cruel and the kind, the pleasant and the ugly, she embraced life and navigated through it with the cloud of being an outcast hovering always over her shoulder. She was the last twin birth deemed by tribal custom to be buried alive before this tradition was stopped. This is her story.
