I dealt with children all day who are indirect victims of parents who have a mental illness. It's not their fault by any stretch of the imagination that they are placed in this position and at such a young age. Their parents can't help or be there for them because they are struggling with issues that prevent them from taking care of themselves. So what to do? I just want to cry but I am powerless. I can only direct the them to the right door for resources and hope they get them. The children cannot suffer. Yet they do. This is something I cannot let go. We must move forward to protect our children and give them an opportunity. Simply that. Opportunity.
