If a filthy urine soaked child ran up to you scared and wanting you to hold them (as in they just got away from a bad situation, as in, kidnapping, or a neglectful family) Would you hold them and comfort them or turn them away because they were dirty and smelly?

I would absolutely hold and comfort them, it's not their fault that they're dirty and smelly, and doesn't make them need compassion any less.

Yes.  For example, DD slipped and fell directly on her face, causing her to bleed profusely.  She then swallowed blood, which caused her to vomit.  Guess what I was covered in?  Blood and vomit.

I think I could stand a little dirt and urine.
