I didn't know that I would have to be giving hugs to my niece to help her through a hard time when her mom didn't understand her. She had been complaining of her knee hurting and was not giving any support in transferring her weight from the chair to the bed and vise versa. Since Michelle cannot explain well what is going on her mother did not really believe her that there was anything going on with the knee. I felt differently. I finally said to her, "Michelle, what's going on?"
Her eyes teared up and the she just began to cry her little heart out and and spread her arms out for a hug. I held her and consoled her for the longest time and told her that everything was going to be alright.
The second time was the very next day when we arrived from the airport with the wheelchair in not so good condition and that was the last straw for her and again she broke down and began to sob because they did not believe that all of what my sister was telling them that was wrong with the chair was due to the fault of the airlines.
