I was talking to baby J's...

.



I was talking to baby J's social worker on the phone and kaleb asked who I was talking to.
When I told him he said, "social workers help kids who don't have family right?"

"Right kaleb, that's some of what they do."

"baby j already has a family. Why do they need to help him?"

hhhmmmmmmm....how DO you explain "the system is screwed up" to a 4 year old?

  3. Aloha, I stumbled upon your blog as I was looking for other Hawaii bloggers. There's something about knowing other women who you can relate to are out there. I love that "your story" covers such a range. I'm so glad to add your button to localsugarhawaii.com and hope that you will join me on the ride at localsugarhawaii.com.
