If speaking to higher powers is something you participate in please place somewhere in your conversation with Him PartyGirl, LadyKat, and T. Without putting too much detail out there I'll say that T is my 13 year old "niece". She's going through some things and her coping mechanism or way of communicating what she's going through is running away from home. She has run away numerous times and have been brought home by various law enforcement, good samaritans, and sometimes of her own accord.
The professional "system" is failing across the board and there isn't much anyone can do but pray.
Today she didn't get on the bus and to my knowledge hasn't come home or been brought home by someone yet.
I don't even want to imagine what it would be like not knowing where Pooka was or if she was safe or not.
****EDIT****T is home now, but pray for those involved anyway
