this is a very intense, very beautiful page, exploring things from a mother's point of view. this woman's two sons were molested by a babysitter, and the mother is now courageously dealing with the aftermath. this page explores a lot of how she feels and what she thinks, as well as the facts about what has and what is going on in their lives. highly recommended, for anyone.
