Anna* just turned 17. She has a shy smile and speaks with a sweet grace but her eyes mask pain. When she was 7, Anna’s dad abandoned the family, sending her mom into a deep, unrelenting depression. Anna has not been hugged, kissed or encouraged by a parent for over a decade. Now a teenager, she is in danger as she seeks out love. I pray she doesn’t look for it in the wrong places.
