The most heart-breaking stories are those of broken homes and fractured relationships. There’s one reason – because in most instances they’re avoidable. This past week I was told of two families who are navigating incredibly challenging circumstances. In one household, the father has a history of abuse and the family has had enough. In the other, one parent was convicted of embezzling funds in the workplace and is serving a long-term prison sentence leaving behind a spouse and 3 precious daughters.
