Listening to two little boys in the playroom

As  I type this email, I am listening to two little boys in the playroom with  their counselor.  Their father recently committed suicide.  One of the boys actually spoke to me today.  I think that is the first time I have heard words come out of his mouth when I greeted him.  The other boy talks, but is quiet.  His little eyes always look so hopeful.    Their counselor is doing such a good job with them.  

Their mom is in the lobby waiting.   She is more calm now than I have seen in a long time.  Another counselor on our staff is working with her.  The mom was literally trembling the first several times she came in.  

Their whole lives were suddenly changed. Thank you for helping us help them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
