FIX MY FAMILY
Please Jesus, help my family,
We are in BIG trouble
I know my parents love me...
I can't understand our life,
Please, tell me why our family is
My parents are rarely here,
They drink and do drugs,
When my parents are gone,
I have to parent the other children.
They are all younger than me.
Please Jesus, Help me,
I am so very tired.
When they are here they argue,
And call one another bad names.
Please Jesus, tell me why this is
I can't sleep at night cause mom
And dad scream and yell and
Why, Jesus, Why?
I am so tired at school and
I am getting bad grades.
I can't tell the teacher about my family,
I don't think she'd understand.
Do you hear me, Jesus?
Do You understand?
We wear dirty clothes to school
and the other kids tease us.
I feel so bad all the time
And I cry a lot.
Sometimes I hit the other kids at school.
Now they think I am a bad kid.
Please dear Jesus,
Do you hear me?
There is hardly ever any food to eat
And we are hungry all the time.
I asked the neighbor lady for some food
But she asks too many questions.
Please Jesus, help me!
The other day we were so hungry
I went to a store to steal some food.
The lady caught me!
I sure was scared and I started to cry.
She put her arm around me and asked me,
Honey, what is wrong?
It was the first time anyone ever
Treated me so nice.
I cried even harder as she held me close.
I told her about my family and
How I thought about ending my life.
She told me all about you , Jesus.
I'm afraid, Jesus, and feel like
I want to just give up,
You are my last HOPE.
The lady said, I can count on YOU.
I don't ask for much,
so won't you please,
FIX MY FAMILY ?

Having worked with children our whole life,
basically I have seen an awful lot of child abuse.
Please, Please, Please, I beg of you,
if you know a child is being abused in anyway,
please report it right away.
Abuse can destroy a child for a lifetime.
It can cause severe depression.
It tears families apart, sometimes forever.
Children are a gift from God, Lets treat them
Children deserve respect, the same as adults.
Lets listen to them and be there for them.
LETS LET THEM KNOW THEY CAN COUNT ON US,
AND THAT WE LOVE THEM AND THAT WE WILL BE
THERE FOR THEM.
IN JESUS' LOVE Dede .....
