Eyes red rimmed, face flushed, she stumbled through the office door after a toddling two-year old boy while holding on to a chubby six-month old, whimpering infant girl. The young mother apologized when her active son ran into my leg, nearly knocking my notepad and pen from my lap. I smiled. “It’s okay,” I said.
Ervin is the typical young boy born as a bastard child that finds himself unwanted and unloved by those closest to him. Rejected at birth, his only hope at unconditional love was from his grandparents who take and raise him as their own. After a few years of pure happiness, Ervin’s estranged mother Molly decides
Peer pressure can become life-threatening. David Washington is the product of his choices. Due to the lack of stability at home and an absent father, he is influenced by peer pressure into a dangerous lifestyle. Possessed with stubbornness, he wanders aimlessly into danger and uncharted territories. After shunning his grandmother’s religious beliefs, he enters the
Nestled behind a few businesses and a condo building, The Dolphin View Restaurant in New Smyrna Beach, Florida is an almost hidden gem. Almost… Driving up to the big blue building is not impressive at all. But, as soon as you walk around what looks like a storage facility you get it. I mean, you

We’re still moving along with the 30-Day Mom Challenge. No one knows I’m doing it except me. As much as the boys and I eat dinner together I didn’t realize how much they appreciated having meals with me until they raved to their dad about me eating breakfast at the table with them. Normally, he

Because if this, I end up saying “no” and being responsible for disciplining them most of the time. Like many primary care givers, I struggle with finding the balance between
October is almost over. If you thought the “back to school” season was busy wait for the onrush of fall and winter activities combined with school, sports and other extracuriccular activities. Because we have the tendency to be busy, it is good to step back and plan to be active and present in our children’s
Exactly 11 years ago at this very moment you came into the world quiet and observant. The moment I saw your face, my heart became even more full—showing me that the capacity to love expands as special people enter into your life. “…and she loved a little boy very, very much—even more than she loved
He didn’t mean it. It wasn’t that bad. He’s great with the kids. I love him. There are so many things that could be going through Janay Palmer’s mind. Just like we weren’t in the elevator that night we are not in her home or her mind. A situation that she and her husband Ray
