Simone's Story

Simone was excelling in her career with a beautiful four-month-old son. She recently returned to work full time, yet her husband, who saw himself as the primary bread winner, was rarely home. This left Simone alone to cope with Mikey, who cried hours on end. The couple had few friends and family nearby, and the isolation was exhausting and overwhelming. Simone started to take her frustration out on the baby. She felt guilty and ashamed because she loved her son and wanted to be a good mother. Thankfully, she was enrolled in a home visitation program and The Family Tree helped her cope.
