Portia’s Treasure

Against the advice of friends, I brought a baby-doll for Portia. It was a huge success in the neighborhood; moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmothers all came to admire it. Because it’s an African-American doll-baby, the short cap of hair was a definite favorite. At first, whenever someone would take it away from Portia to admire it, she’d cry big alligator sobs, but she eventually learned that it was a hot commodity in her neighborhood and learned to adjust to everyone’s admiration, knowing she’d eventually get her treasure back.
