DON'T DISAPPOINT DADDY
A True, Redemptive Abortion Story
One girl's inner vows fan the flames
of abuse and failure.
One adjustment transforms them.
In literary speak, Elisha is a transitional character.
“A transitional character is one who, in a single generation, changes the entire course of a lineage. The changes might be for good or ill, but the most noteworthy examples are those individuals who grow up in an abusive, emotionally destructive environment and who somehow find a way to metabolize the poison and refuse to pass it on to their children. They break the mold. They refute the observation that abused children become abusive parents, that the children of alcoholics become alcoholic adults, that 'the sins of the fathers are visited upon the heads of children to the third and fourth generation.' Their contribution to humanity is to filter the destructiveness out of their own lineage so the generations downstream will have a strong foundation upon which to build.”
