A few days after the first few kids had gone, Lucy’s parents had decided to move in with her grandparents.
So Lucy and her aunt moved in.
They rented a place near a lake.
Lucy and the kids loved it.
They loved the view, and the lake and the warm water.
Lucy loved her parents.
They had made a new life together.
The new life, and all the new friends they’d made along the way, felt more than they had in years.
Lucy was in school again.
She loved the art classes and the classes at a local museum.
She thought it was cool that her cousin had an art teacher.
And she liked the way her mom worked, too.
Her dad’s job is a full-time caregiver, she says.
She wanted to be able to work when she wanted.
She’d always loved the idea of taking care of people.
The idea of a mom helping someone else’s kids.
Lucy’s mother, a retired nurse, took a leave of absence after the baby died in March 2017.
Lucy moved into a new apartment.
She and her family were a big part of the new neighborhood.
Now, they live in a one-bedroom, one-bathroom house, a quiet neighborhood where they don’t get much attention from neighbors.
They say the new neighbors don’t bother them.
But it has its drawbacks.
Neighbors sometimes don’t like that the house is being rented, especially when the rent increases every month, and they worry that a new family could end up in a bad place.
Neighborhoods are not supposed to be big, but they are, Lucy says.
They’re very small.
The two older children moved into the same one-room, one to one apartment.
The other two live in separate houses.
There are no kids in the apartment, but a neighbor is a regular in the neighborhood.
“It’s really nice, and we feel safe, but there’s no one else in the area,” Lucy says, referring to the two kids living in the same place.
“If someone wanted to come in and live with us, they could come in, but that’s not the plan right now.”
She says she worries that she’ll be moved to another apartment by the time she is ready to go to college, so she’s taking steps to make sure that her new life is safe.
But the reality is that when it comes to being a parent, Lucy is trying to keep a distance.
Lucy says she thinks of her mother as a role model, and she wants to be a good role model to her children.
She wants to make her own decisions, but she wants them to be for the best.
She’s trying to be supportive of her new mom.
She thinks that her mom’s love and caring for the kids is what makes her happy, and that it makes her feel loved.
Lucy said that she wants the kids to feel that love, too, and to understand that she can love them and not have to be in the way.
But she’s also worried about the new family being in a dangerous situation.
“I’m afraid I will lose my kids, because I know they are my kids,” she says, her voice breaking.
“My mom is the reason I get to have my own home, my own space, where I can come out, be my own person.”
When Lucy first moved in with the family, she said, “I felt like my mom was going to be the one to say, ‘I love you, mom, I love you.’
But she is not.”
Now, she worries about losing her children, but says she feels loved.
She worries about the neighborhood’s safety, too: “It is unsafe, and it is dangerous to be around them, especially in the morning,” Lucy said.
“When they are alone, they are scared to leave the house.
And then they go to school, they go on walks.
And if there is someone who comes to the house and they are worried, then they are in danger.
And I have to worry about that.
So I have been very careful, especially because of the weather.”
Lucy’s neighborhood is known for violence.
She says that she knows that because of her own history, and because she’s a single mother, there is a greater risk of violence in the new life she’s building.
But, she added, “It has been good, because we can have fun together, we can watch movies together, because it’s not like we’re living together.”
She also said that her mother has been very supportive.
“She’s like, ‘This is my home.
You are here.
This is where I am,’ and I just think it’s good.”
She said that the two moms have been able to share their stories and understand each other.
And Lucy is excited about the next step in
