For the moms4.14.2021Wednesday

I have two hearings this morning, one where I represent the child and one where I represent the mother in Dependency and Neglect cases. Both children were born exposed to drugs.

Drugs cause a lot of the problems seen at Juvenile Court, but not all of them. Way too often, the root problem is trauma layered upon trauma. Mothers raising children as they were raised, which also included trauma or foster care, also traumatic.

My heart goes out to these and I pray for a way to really create a new way of being. With God all things are possible!

Please join me in prayer.
