.i've never known.

I have a family now.

Kylee would brush my hair. 
She'd check me for lice.
Marcia would be grossed out 
but she'd wash my hair.
Jen would rub my back.
Kelsey would drive across the country
to do my laundry.
Emily would give me permission
to stay home.
Hannah would commiserate.
Jessica would let me cry and cry.
Lauren would talk and talk.
Katie would try to make me smile.
They would all try.

I've never been so safe.
I've never been so safe.
I've never known such a family.
Such parents.
Helping me parent myself.
