The staff member returned with Walencia’s mother in the early afternoon. As soon as I saw her I instantly recalled, not so much the details of her horrific story but, the emotional pain of her life. When allowed Walencia and her younger sister to live at Santa Chiara, we were already over our self-imposed limit to the number of kids we felt we could handle. The mother has one badly damaged eye. Ecarlatte began to tell her the litany of Walencia’s misdeeds, and her constantly starting fights.
