    Seeing the CPS thread at the top this morning let me share a letter one of my 5th grade girls gave me at PE yesterday. She said, "Coach, I want you to read this." She and I have talked about her life at different times. She and her grandmother were stuck at our Fall Festival one night with no ride so I gave them a ride home and saw where they live. My son is her age and I wonder how he would be having had to live like this child.

    She does well in school and is like a mother to her siblings, she is 11 years old.

    That child is apparently brave and articulate. I hope the judge listens. We never know what our kids go through outside these school walls. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm so glad you're a lighthouse in all of her familial fog. Her letter is amazing and I think any judge would be wise to take it into consideration.

    Did the student actually send this to court? She might have, but may also be reaching out to you for help....

    She was giving it to her dad to give to the judge. I told her I would attend court with her and she said she would give me the date of when to go.
