Sadly, I understood this as soon as I drew it. Great upset and stress for both the child and the mother, or you could combine the child and the woman to denote a young woman, or daughter.
At the very last moment, we realised we weren’t going to be able to get the funds to send my daughter off to her first year at University. We had the school pretty well lined up, but couldn’t afford clothes or airfare! The money just didn’t arrive in time to pull it off. Heartache has been very much evident (especially with the ‘Mom’!)
My daughter is very philosophical about it all, and has devised an alternative course of studies for this year ‘off’. She is one amazing (and bright) 17 year old…. I’m truly blessed.
