“Just in case we have to take your children away…” — CP&P/DYFS worker.
Dear People of All Walks of Life,
It is I, Lavender Wynter, with the first installment (out of three) of my memoir — “Break Me into Pieces.”
A year ago today, I was horribly hurt and beaten apart by an event in my life that involved CP&P (Child Protection and Permanency). They were formerly known as DYFS (Department of Youth and Family Services) in the state of New Jersey, or DCF (Department of Children and Families) in other states.
No parent, good or bad, ever wants to hear the quote above…
… and thus became the beginning of my emotional nightmare. I still haven’t completely healed, and it has worsen my struggles with depression and insomnia. Writing this forced me to face the events to find closure, and hopefully, to begin the healing process.
So, without further ado, “Break Me into Pieces”.
The next two installments will hopefully follow weekly after today.
Stay safe, and hang in there. Winter may actually end early this year and spring might just be around the corner.
Much, much love — Lavender Wynter
