Sarah darling! So glad to see you! You may have a tough job. My children aren't always well behaved.
I'm Jane. I'm 12 and I think your outfit looks too much like mine!
I'm Louise and I'm 10. I don't think Mommy wanted to hire you, but she didn't really have a choice.
I'm Michael. I'm 6 and I think you're pretty.
It was 1943. I was a tutor for wealthy people in Cincinnati. I lived in a boarding house with several other women whom were poor as well. Our boarding house was the only place where they would keep people of any race at the time. Out of all of us, Margaretta Lucifer had it the worst. She was pregnant with the child of her soldier, but the two weren't married.

I'm sure that won't be the case, dear.
Being 15, there are only a few job options for me. I had to become a tutor because it was the best paying job I could get. This particular day was my first day with Mrs. Klondike and her children.
Margaretta! A baby! Wow!

Hi guys! Can everyone tell me their name and age so we can get better aquainted?
My first day as a tutor was a disaster. The kids hated me and their mother was none too happy when they expressed their complaints.

That night, I came come to the other women who live at the boarding house. We went to the public sitting room to talk. Margaretta was crying because she was sure the baby was coming any day now. Arna, who was a maid, tried to comfort her by telling her about her children. Then there was Darci, who had come from a wealthy family, but was kicked out after they found out she was helping a a woman who was an unmarried mother. She now worked at a reception desk.
I'm afraid my child will grow up without ever meeting their father or living a good life!
And here I am, feeling bad for myself, but no one cares.
The following week, the soldiers came home. My sister's husband is a soldier, so she was just gushing to see him. Margaretta was a little worried to see the reaction she would get from Michael, her child's father. I was happy because I might be able to get a job as a nurse.
Darling, we would be so glad to have you with us!
Oh! I can't believe you're happy!
I'd love to join the medical field here.
It's 1953, I'm 25 years old and I am a widow with two daughters. Scarlet is my oldest at 5 years old, and Charlotte is my youngest at age 3. I worked as a waitress to provide for the girls, but obviously we were not super wealthy. I kept in touch with everyone from the boarding house, especially Darci who is dating and has a child with her boyfriend, when I joined the medical field, which is how I met my husband who was in the military.
