My two grandchildren came to me with only the clothes on their back. They were taken out of their home by dhs. Mom (my daughter) had taken off leaving two little ones age 4 & 5 at the time, with an abuser, ( their dad). He physically abused the mom. Then he turned on the kids when mom left. So they came with just the clothes on their backs. Literally. My other daughter posted on FB and garage sale sights, people were really kind to help donate clothing, beds, etc...the kids continue growing and have clothing needs I can't afford so I buy a lot of stuff in thrift stores. Yes it was a shock. And yes it turned my world upside down.
