Child in hospital

I am a single mom of three, ages 17, 12, and 9. My 17 year old is in the hospital and wants me to stay overnight and I have no one to watch other two kids. What am I to do? I don't want to leave any of them alone.

Sara Says:
I am so very sorry to hear about your ill child! This must be a very scary time.

The youngest 2 are too young to stay at home alone, but surely there is a classmate they can stay with, even if they don't stay at the same place. Please reach out to a friend of yours or theirs for support. God bless, and know you and your family are in my prayers.
