Oh such sadness and tragedy in such few words, but so well done. Your heart hurts for these characters.
This is a sad situation and definitely hard to put into words kids can understand.
To be left to her hunt for liquor.. can't be more sad than that.
That is sad when you choose your addiction over your kids! ♥
Yow. No good explanation for that one, nope.
And there's always a next drink to be found. Many, much younger than the first...
Wow. Tragic, harsh, just very, very sad. Thanks for linking up and don't forget to vote!
Love Troy's response above. Indeed! This is a sad reality sometimes, I'm afraid.
Abandonment for any reason is so terribly sad for the kids, but for an addiction, equally so.
Ouch. Truly sad stuff.
I say that hit the prompt right on the head. :/
Ugh. What a sad circumstance.
Oh, wow. The realness of this makes it a heartbreaking tale.
Ouch, that's painful for sure. Having to deal with it is one thing; having to explain it to the kids... Nice job.
Such a sad piece with heartbreaking words. Very good job on the prompt.
Powerful, heartbreaking, and yes, near impossible to explain in a kid-appropriate way.
Heart breaking piece!
That is wrong.
