literacy - 365grateful 019

it's rare in my part of the world to meet totally illiterate people. this baby's mom was an immigrant, couldn't speak or understand english and couldn't read or write in her native language (she couldn't even tell me her phone number). it must be very difficult, always relying on others for information. i am grateful i am literate.
