He informs his employer and starts his journey to the Home where his mother has been put on board. The reason for putting his mother in a Home in his words is because, “When we lived together, Mother was always watching me, but we hardly ever talked.” And when he reaches the Home, the warden says that his mother was very much happier in the Home. And the narrator asserts his decision not to see his mother by saying, “During her first few weeks at the Home she used to cry a good deal. But that was only because she hadn’t settled down.

I was never officially put into the system or foster care, however I relate to Spark and Flame because when my parents hurt me, I found solace in the arms of another caring mother-figure. Like Serena, my new mom helped me understand the situation and my emotions, and she helped me learn how to cope with them. I relate to Spark because he encounters confusion when it comes to loving his abusive mum and my emotional unease is similar to
I didn’t care what anybody said about him. Two years ago, before Christmas two weeks to be exact. I received a devastating call from my mother on her way home crying and her saying “He gone.” I couldn’t hear anything my mother was saying so I started yelling like “Mom you have to calm down I can’t hear you.” She said back to me so clear and I thought I was dreaming when she said, “Your dad is gone Tay call your aunt now.” I instantly fell to the floor and cried to where my sister was calling, and I couldn’t talk because I was so hurt. I called my aunt because I thought it was some mistake but when my aunt picked that phone up and was crying and I was screaming her name and she wasn’t answering I knew that it was true, so I hung up with her and just kept crying I couldn’t control it. My sister called back because I had hung up with her, she kept saying breath please I took a deep breath and told her what happen, and she told me she was on her way.

My parents weren't on speaking terms for a little bit and it was really hard for everyone involved especially for me because I used to be a really big daddy's girl and now I only saw him on the weekends. I remember crying at night because I missed my dad so much and I wanted him and my mom to get back
She was gone, and I had no one by my side that I felt confident enough to share with. After a little while I started doing absolutely miserably in school, lying to my mom so much, that after a certain amount of time, my teacher called her and told her everything. My mom was so shocked that she could not believe it, my lies lasted for probably about a year and after sometime she has of course forgiven me, but I was all alone through all of this again. I felt so lonely and broken that……I wanted to end my life. I went to the extent of writing a good bye note, many times, but I always stopped myself, believing and on some level knowing that I had to fight and that I had to live at least for my mom, because she does for me.
My parents gave me all of their attention when I was born, which made my older sister jealous, cause she didn’t get anything she wanted anymore. I was the happiest child only for two years.

Other patterns can be seen in connection to dates, for example, my Mother’s Dad died in 1965, my father died in 1975 and my maternal grandmother died in 1985. This caused anxiety for my Mother and my sister as they both believed my mother would die in 1995. My Father died at age forty-six and on speaking to my brother, I learned he suffered anxiety in the lead up to his forty-sixth birthday.
