*Children are getting more and more perceptive about the atmosphere they live in and they are incapable of processing the emotions that come with it.

Justice Williams was in the fourth grade, but she, like more and more of our children, are being transitioned into emerging families where her mother, Tamiqua Torres, is starting a new life with a new spouse and new baby. But Justice expressed the extreme distress she was experiencing with all of the changes in her mother’s life.

Her mother sought counseling for Justice after she explained that she “wanted to die” after the news of her mother’s pregnancy. But, her mother’s actions, unfortunately, were not enough. Justice was found hanging from a steel frame in the shower of their Bronx home.
