7a

I’ve started a new job in Miami, and it’s been pretty rough. I’ve had a lot of cases thrown at me. I was doing a visit at this group home in Hialeah with this cute 8 year-old, and immediately noticed his front tooth was missing. I asked him if the Tooth Fairy had brought him any money, and his response was “What is that?” I explained who she was to him, then discreetly gave the house mother $ 3 and whisper-requested that the Tooth Fairy please come for him tonight. The whole thing made me sad, he’s such a great funny little kid. He obviously never had anyone who cared enough or was thoughtful enough explain who the Tooth Fairy was, either his parents or his foster care placements.
