Betsy Snope – “to my sister, who raised a hummingbird”

to my sister who raised a hummingbird

My sister, who was discussing her adopted daughter with me, said at one point,” It was like two robins trying to raise a hummingbird.” Our background is European of the more staid type, and her daughter, genetically, is of ┬ámore volatile South American stock. The mental image stuck with me and so I want to call this piece. “to my sister, who raised a hummingbird.”
