principal

‘Here we go again!’ My son’s principal called me. He’d been written up.’: Adoptive mom ‘cried and cried’ after learning her ‘trauma-ravaged’ son was rewarded for being ‘courageous’

“‘Ms. Pollard, we’re having another bad day. Can you come?’ My boy is silent. Something seems different. I pull him in close, ask what’s going on. It’s mid-September and he’s asking if he can have a race car for Christmas. But it’s not about the gift to him. It’s about his need to feel safe. If I can reassure him he’ll get that race car for Christmas, he knows he’s safe until then. No one will come pick him up. At least for 3 more months.”

‘He works midnights. I woke to him singing our baby to sleep. Ladies, there are amazing men in this world.’: After spending 12 years with man she ‘never should’ve married,’ woman finds partner who ‘respects’ her

“I spent nearly 12 years with a man I never should’ve married. He never touched me. We fought about my weight. I was immune to anything but pain. And then I met Adam. He came home at 8 a.m., kissed my pregnant belly and got our baby girl up so I could sleep a bit longer. I woke up to a homemade omelet. The greatest gift in the world is having a true partner by your side.”
