Do you ever feel that way? Do you ever want someone to paste your life back together and make all the hurts go away? I do.
Can you imagine what it would be like for a small child to feel that way, and to have no daddy to "make it better"? Or to be nine years old and suddenly become the parent for your younger siblings? Or to be six years old and only know life in an orphanage? Or to be two years old and struggle to find food while living on the streets or in the sewers?
Or to be the dying parent who loves those children and knows that soon they will have no one to care for them...
