Caroline is the mother of a friend. Barbara consults Caroline on her moving experience, as Caroline had spontaneously left her husband and moved to Florida without knowing where she would live or work. The first thing Caroline did in Florida was find a church group, who then took her to the Women, Infants and Children office where they helped her find daycare for her baby and a school for her older child. The little girl often has to pick up her baby sister, as her mother works late cleaning rooms for one to two dollars each. The author feels great respect for this woman and her decisions.
