EXCERPT: THE HOME

By Scott Nicholson

(From Chapter 10)

Starlene loved Group. The setting was perfect for teaching socialization skills while also gaining the children’s trust. In group therapy, she could be a “facilitator,” though she hated that word for it. A facilitator was someone who was structured and inflexible, who “empowered” others while not taking much personal risk. She thought of her job as more like “witnessing,” showing others the blessings she’d discovered and which all could share in.

“Hey, guys,” she said, looking into each face in turn.

“You’re late,” Deke said.

“And I apologize. Adults have to apologize sometimes, too, don’t they, Freeman?”

Freeman winced, twitched one corner of his mouth, and said nothing.

“You going to make us talk about something, or do we just got to sit here for an hour?” Deke said.

“I think it’s better when we get things out in the open,” Starlene said.

“Because sharing is caring,” Freeman said.

She ignored his sarcasm. Many placements came to Wendover with a wall around their hearts. You couldn’t hammer through the wall; battering at it only made the wall stronger. Love was better. Love seeped through the cracks and melted the wall away, eroded its base until the stones crumbled. “We do care, Freeman.”

Deke glowered at Freeman, then at Starlene. He looked around the circle, at the children sitting in their straight-backed chairs, making sure he had an audience. “Not all of us care, Freaky Freeman.”

Starlene was about to quiet Deke, then decided the group dynamic might be more interesting if she let the children lead the discussion themselves. If only Deke’s natural leadership skills didn’t turn nasty so easily. Six years in therapy, according to the case file, and Deke was no closer to adjusting to society than he’d ever been. Still, the Lord and her professional obligation required her to have hope for him.

But patience was a demanding virtue. That was one of the warnings that her Psych teachers had burned home, that occasionally you’d feel like slapping little Johnny across the face. No matter that he had been abused and suffered a neurochemical imbalance and was diagnosed with an adjustment disorder, you sometimes had to wonder if a particular brand of vermin was, and always would be, a rat.

Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway Hop! $25 Gift Card!

October 25, 2010 § 108 Comments

Thanks for stopping by my blog today for my part of the Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a reader, Not a writer

Halloween is a busy and exciting time of year in my house. My youngest son’s birthday is Oct. 30, so we have always combined any Halloween activities with his birthday celebration. Anything from Trick or Treat at the Aquarium, haunted hay rides, and Halloween/birthday parties with tons of games and activities. Our favorite Halloween party game to play is the “Toilet Paper Mummy Wrap” this can be played by either children or adults or any combination of the two. How it works: One person takes the roll of toilet paper and begins wrapping their partner as fast as they can without breaking the toilet paper or they have to start over with a new roll. The first pair done wins. So much fun for everyone involved!!


How does your family celebrate Halloween?
