i've been meaning to come by and talk to you.
Mind if i try and act civilized for a moment?
Offered you two a seat.
Mrs. Carter, i ran into kaneesha in the halls.
Was talking about her grades.
She says you don't want her around anymore.
I don't expect your sympathy,
but i ruined my life.
I know that's my business to deal with that.
It's been hard enough.
When kaneesha was in the fifth grade,
you were one of my most active parents.
You were always at school helping out.
We don't mean to pry, mrs. Carter,
but kaneesha has a gift.
She has that spark. We have to look after her.
Why would she think you wouldn't want her?
I had kaneesha when i was 15.
I didn't want no welfare,
so i quit school, worked,
came home at night,
didn't have no life.
So when she was old enough to take care of herself,
i ran out and got one.
Is that what you're doing now?
I'm just now getting back on my feet, you know?
As i get clean...
i see myself for what i am...
and i hate it.
And i don't want her to see me like this no more.
So when the people from the foster home came by,
i thought it was the right thing to do.
Why would i want to get rid of her?
