What would you like to get for Christmas?
“I want a horse” she says, “a white horse!”

Interviewer’s Note…
Just as I was about to continue asking her questions, Miracle turned around and started playing with a ball. Her name befits her. I am privileged to be part of MCI’s Pre-K Program, I met Miracle and immediately felt a connection. She is so innocent, smart and playful. When you look at her, she seems distracted but don’t be fooled, she is paying attention to everything.  Everyday, I look forward to seeing and spending time with her. I thought I was to be teaching her, instead, she is the one teaching me.
