SHE JUST NEEDS A PLACE TO LIVE.
And because of her circumstances, there is nowhere for her to lay her weary head. She's just a kid. An innocent young woman of 16 who came into the world with unfortunate circumstances. Her mother is addicted to crack-cocaine, HIV-positive, and currently institutionalized for suicidal ideation.
It's a mess. We have been working on finding a placement for this young person for days. Because she is an offender, there are stipulations on where she can be placed. She can't be around other children.
As I lay my body down to rest tonight, I will send up a prayer for this young woman/child who is carrying a heavy burden. I wish for her a clean, warm, dry, pleasant place that she can call home.
