As a mother, I feel it is my duty to protect my children from harm. I will never forget the feeling of helplessness the first time my child was seriously injured.
A few days earlier, I found out that I was unexpectedly pregnant with my daughter and that made things difficult between my boyfriend and me. At that time, he did not want to have another child and felt I had allowed myself to get pregnant on purpose. He decided to take a few days of vacation and left town to deal with the news. The first night he was gone turned out to be one of the worst nights of my life. Here I was with a two and a half yor old son, Travis, and another one on the way with no one to be there with me to help raise them.

I was shaking like one single leaf left on a tree in the middle of fall. My legs trembled uncontrollably. I watched as they removed the blood soaked towel from Travis' wrist. They informed me that it was not his wrist, but it was the lower portion of his hand and it would need stitches. I cried and pleaded with Bill to contact my boyfriend, Tony, to let him know that his son was hurt and needed to go to the hospital. I did not need him physically, but emotionally. I wanted him to feel guilty for leaving us. I calmed down enough to call my mom, but she could still hear the fear in my voice when I asked her to carry us to the hospital.
