The evident pain of an appalling time where my mother was at her weakest, not knowing how she would support her four children after being laid off during the Great Recession of 2008, was suffocating. Having no father figure to look up to in my life, other than an illustration of a man leaving his family behind, was excruciating, especially at the boisterous stage of my innocence. In elementary school, I was suspended, received unacceptable grades, and was bullied. Growing up, I found myself isolated and disadvantaged in my institutional environments. I find that it was grossly unfair that the complexity of adulthood was initiated at the time of my childhood.

Terry and Antonio are so caught up in their own grief that they are not paying proper attention to their other three children. The communication in this household is masked because they learned to change the subject whenever Sam’s name comes up. The children as well as the parents did not get the proper amount of time to grieve their loss if they are not allowed to talk about it. Open communication is important for children following the death of a sibling and siblings who were provided family support exhibited less problematic behaviors (Rossetto, 2015).
