This is the second perm Lindsey has done for me. She's slow (OCD about rolling), but without a doubt, she's done the best perm in my memory. I asked for her on Friday and I'll ask for her again.
Lindsey is a young woman who comes from a family with six children, (2 from her dad's previous marriage, the youngest 4 are adopted).
She's very open about her life so I asked her about being adopted (she's from Korea). It's pretty obvious that her parents have a grasp on eternity - I asked and they are Reformed.
She said, "I have friends that have asked me if I want to find my "real" family. I tell them [she used Scripture], I was thirsty and they gave me drink, I was hungry and they fed me. I was homeless and they put me into a family. What's not "real" about that?"
I think that Reformed people have a different view of adoption than other "flavors" of Christianity - the right definition of "covenant" counts. (by the way...when I get back from vacation - I just don't have time or desire right now - I'm ordering a new keyboard. The keys are taking turns not working...a few days ago it was "x", now it's "v". I need to reach for the laptop keyboard each time that letter comes up. I had no idea how many words I use contain the letter "v")
Then she talked about all of her "guy buddies" and wanting to go back to college but not being able to get a loan because her dad's a business owner.
It took 2 hours to roll my hair - she's that thorough.
