"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



I told her adoptive parents that my specialty was working with just this kind

of child    She had been taken from her young mother at 5   had lived in 2 more

foster homes by 7   One of the lucky ones   Forever homes are scarce for older

children  From 7 to 11  when she arrived on my doorstep   she had been running

away in search of her mother    She had also run from her mother  One night she

even broke into her friend’s house & hid behind the couch  It was the night her

mother squashed all of the baby hamsters   Our 1st session lasted 10 minutes

She was beautiful  & sullen  with hatred living in eyes & mouth  I have since heard

that whenever she is released from detention she returns to her pimp in the Niagara

Region               Her mother a distant memory
