a seed

Bethlehem’s fictitious story came to an end when she came to us with the truth. she’d been living with her grandmother for a long time before her mother convinced her to live with her instead. She run away from her mother’s because she had a fight with her stepfather after a cat ate a chicken he owned. Because this was not her first time away from home, her family weren’t that surprised to see her. instead, her grandmother was worried that she had done something wrong and that she’d have to pay for her mistakes. After realizing that she didn’t do anything bad, her grandmother welcomed her back home. the reunification wasn’t a great one per say but seeing a child back in a place where she belongs is worth it. Sometimes, even though we don’t get great responses from families, our teams come back to EH hoping that the seeds sawn in every child’s life will soon blossom.
