I originally shared this piece of flash fiction on 27 July last year; it was inspired by an old news article about children who were given to a circus doctor after their parents could no longer care for them.

Today's Friday Flashback post is one I originally shared on 6th June 2018. I didn't have any posts from today's date for some reason.
