Car Jail

This morning the kids were playing “car jail” – this means the doll is placed in jail made from blocks, and all the baby cars are moved to another building by DHS.


Then the baby cars go with their caseworker cars to try out different foster homes.  Some pretty crazy stuff happens in the foster homes for cars.  The baby cars miss their mom and want to have visits, but mom never shows up or misses because she is back in jail for stealing again or sometimes comes but gets kicked out of visits for using drugs again.

Then finally, all the baby cars find a foster home they like, where there is a swing set and dress up clothes and the only rules are not stealing food at night and all the baby cars have to poop in the potty and not in the yard.

When the baby cars finally get adopted, they are “so happy to be best friends now” and all of them go together to the temple to get sealed, two at a time.


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
