"Every time my kids call, I drop everything. I’m a good mother.”

“She kind of married a guy that was bad. And we came to get her… That’s why I came down here, to save my daughter from going to jail. Everything I make, I give it to her.. She thinks I go to work everyday. I’d hate for her to see me out here *laughs*. Cuz it’s really hard for me to get a job, and I lost all my records because they got taken when we got here. When we got here, we got robbed. It’s a sob story, I know, I’m sorry… My daughter’s been drug free for four months. So, I got her away from the guy, I got her out of drug rehab, and now she’s coming home with me. I’m only a couple of dollars short."

“She married a guy and moved down here. She’s 24 years old... I’ve spent my life savings on this… to get her home... I’m not mad at her. She’s gonna fail, she’s gonna fall. Cuz we always do… Everybody falls at some point... She’s needs to come home. She’s been down here 2 years. She got hooked on heroin, and the guy beats her up. But as a parent, if you try to stop it, they won’t stop. You have to wait for the kids to ask you for help… She finally broke down and said, ‘Mom, come get me.’ Every time my kids call, I drop everything. I’m a good mother.”
