Richardo reminded us of the story in the Bible of the woman who was caught in the act of adultery and how the towns people had led her out to be stoned and how Jesus told them that those without sin to cast the first stone. How one by one they all dropped their stones and left. Eventually she was left alone with Jesus who asked her where her accusers where. Jesus did not accuse her and admonished her to go and sin no more. We have seen this same story unfold before us with Esmerelda, she was not caring for her children and her own parents, brother and family lived within 100 feet of the “Chicken Coop” where the five children lived, yet would have nothing to do with her or her children. The children were not cared for, she seemed in a helpless situation, depressed and having little or no ability to change her situation.
