..and I met your lonely spirit in childhood…we have been kindred spirits since. And like Ezekial, I know you were taken with the wind…I love children…many don’t understand the simple comfort a broken person can find in the company of children.

I’m a spiritual person; I was raised in the Catholic Church but when I went into fostercare I began my journey into several religions…lutheran, episcopal, born-again christian, converted to orthodox judiasm…I read the bible cover to cover twice.

Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment When I married Chris he told me I no longer had to be a working mom.  He said we would be full partners in everything.  I was thrilled to, at long last, be able to be an at home mom; however, I was also walking away from a very well-paid, prestigious job as an executive assistant to NYC’s top commercial real estate owner/developer who was in the…
