last night

me: So it's going to be a girl -a teenager- and she has a little baby of her own.  She's too young to live on her own and take care of herself and her baby... she needs to be able to go to school and she needs help to learn how to take good care of her baby. They don't have any family that is able to help them right now, so they are coming to stay here just for a short time while the people in charge figure out a plan for her.

Sawyer: They really don't have anywhere to live?

me: They really don't have a place to stay or anywhere else to go right now.

Sawyer: Nobody she knows can help her?

me: There's no one else for her right now buddy.

Sawyer: contemplative pause... Mom, that's really pretty sad if you think about it, isn't it.

Yes. Yes it is.
