Too many times 
I have searched for 
parking spots,
Had my purse checked, 
stood vunerably just outside 
the hospital with my child. 

The waiting,  the unfamiliar, 
the questions.
So many times 
when they were little 
I had answers. 
Now I an depending on 
overextended doctors and 
nurses to help my child. 
Kindness comes in the form 
on a jovial phlebotomist who 
takes us to a cubical to wait.
