Hi, here's an idea or two to love that little girl inside.

Sometimes I pick up her and just hug her as close as can be. Usually, I take her to the bathroom first and give her a wonderfully warm, safe bath and put clean flannel jammies on her. I paint her room yellow, so it's not a scary place and I have beautiful new sheets on the bed. I read to her and tuck her in, and either leave the light on or stay with her until she falls asleep.

With the older girl I'll take her for a walk and buy her an ice cream and I'll listen to what she has to say. I'll sit really close to her and hug her if she'll let me.

The angry girl, I still can't get close to, but she's watching me with the others and I figure I'll persuade her to come closer soon.

Mostly I provide comfort to the little girls. That's what they need most. They didn't do anything wrong, and they just need love.

this is just what I do, but thought I'd share.
