HOW WE CAN HELP
Somehow most of thegirls in our group homes misssed that experience. No one explained what wasn't safe, healthy, or responsible.
On top of that, someone abused them, tossed them aside, distained them. Then they were blamed. Now they are angry, disinfranchised, out of step educationally, psychologically, and socially.
Now, we have an opportunity to help. How? A set of rules? A set of consequencwa? A list of "If you don't......you will never be........?
We give them should haves, ought to be's, and a hope of hopeless predictions.
How about we stop all that! How about we extend a hand of welcome, a genuine conversation, conversations just because we want to get to know them. Some mercy, hopefulness, and humankindness would really begin to build a bridge so that perhaps they will want to give us a chance to know them.
Perhaps they will let us share our programs with them, and we will learn together.
