We all crowded around the small table: seven girls from the unit, my co-leader, and me. For an hour we
discussed questions the girls asked. Laura, a teenager who had been sucking her thumb most of the hour, said, “I have a question. Why do mothers just leave their daughters? Some girls in here say they haven’t seen their mothers for six months!” Jan, a girl who talks like Rocky, spoke up: “My mother just wants a roof over my head….” Before she could finish, she started to cry. Crying here is rare. Despite their brokenness, those girls in that chilly brick room still have hope, a hope that can only come from a personal, loving Savior touching a shattered life, and making it brand new.
