A young mother makes bad decisions that affect the welfare of her children. They are too young to understand why mommy behaves the way that she does. All they know is that nothing in their life is constant except disappointment. The parents do not feel remorse until their way of life is compromised. These conversations are all that the children have to keep the connection with their mother at the top of their little minds. It is like she toss them away, never to be seen by them again. You feel their anger, pain, and disbelief that this is what their life has become. Will they forgive her transgressions? Can they love her unconditionally again? Join me to find out.

Don’t ever believe that small children are not thinking about consequences. Children who are caught in the crossfire of consistent change are on guard all the time. They have to be but that does not make it right. Toddlers need to be carefree not concern about survival or where they will wake up the next day. Unfortunately, this is becoming the plight of more and more children each and every day. I only hope that they each have someone to come to the rescue because most are too young to save themselves.
Communications Through a Fence
They watch what they say, they watch how they move, the two small children are careful. Not that the surroundings were not familiar, the children didn't want to cause any issues that might result in them to be uprooted and be sent somewhere else. Moving from location to location has been a constant. A constant the children grow weary of but expect.
