Nia said that Mother Brown would beat any girls that even thought about wearing pants at the orphanage. That explains why Nia insisted on wearing skirts the first month home (November), even to the point of freezing all the time. Can you imagine what she thought of her New Mommy who put on a pair of jeans 30 minutes before leaving for the Monrovian airport? Going to h_ll in a hand-basket faster than you can blink your eye.
I actually liked wearing skirts every day in Liberia. I grew up wearing skirts. Never put a pair of pants on until I was 18 and in college. Skirts and dresses are just cooler for me in the summer. But, honey, come winter my legs never see the light of day.
Anyways, there's just all manner of lies to unearth and replant with Truth.
