Mary and Jane
When "Mary's" violent husband kicked her teeth in, Mary knew it was time to leave. She lived in an abusive relationship for years, but she simply couldn't take it anymore. She took her children and ran.
While Mary lived in her car looking for a job-- a difficult task because people assumed her broken teeth were a result of drug abuse-- her children came to Hays. Over the next 9 months, the little family would get a new start in life, Mary would get her smile back, and they would have a promising future, together.
