Sister Superior smiled. “We would welcome Manorama, if you care to leave her.”
“Good, good.” Rama nodded her head. “That’s settled.”
“It’s for the best,” Rama told herself, forcing back a tear. “She’ll get a good education and plenty of food.”
“Mano,” Rama said. “I’m going to leave you with these ladies, but don’t worry, I’ll come back.”
“Everything’s fine, precious one. Ladies, you’re so gracious. Please excuse me. I’ll send Mano’s things.”
Rama rushed down the street with tears running down her face. This was a wonderful opportunity for Mano. What could be better? Mano would have a proper home with plenty of food. She would learn English and go to the mission schools. It was perfect. And Rama could focus on helping child widows. It was the best thing for everyone.
