The Streets of San Francisco ...


My best behaved student ran away this last weekend! She lives in a grouphome for girls and she was on an outing to San Francisco where she just bailed out of the van at a stoplight! What was she thinking?!

She is barely 14 years old!


Between worrying about her and Yibbyl being out of town - I just can't sleep.



  • I don't know how you do it.

    It is hard enough to have to worry about your own kids.

    You are an angel.

    I sincerly wish I can offer you wisdom.

    Allan is right, you are an angel.

  • I have no idea how to respond to this.

    What sort of parents bring a child to this?

  • Gotta go,Gotta go.If we could teach them that life is long.That they have pleny of time to explore.Snap decisions are their downfall I'm afraid.

  • Oh Michelle... I know how much you care about those kids, and how much it hurts you when they throw away or damage the few opportunities they are given. I hope she's OK.

    And as others have already said... you are an angel. And very definitely not "just" anything.

    MANY hugs.

  • I'll just add my own hug and repeat what the others have said: you're an angel.
