When We Move a Child from Home to Home

When we move a child from home to home

We should approach the move

Like brain surgery.

Review all possible alternatives to avoid this most drastic course.

Still sometimes it must be done.

And when it must be done

We must approach with caution and fear

Knowing we might lose the child entirely

Knowing at best

The procedure will involve pain and trauma

The recovery will be long and difficult

And the scar will remain
