A young woman confided in her favorite teacher about being pregnant. The teacher must have told the principal, who called her mother. When she came home from school, her mother was furious. That night when she was asleep, her mother came into her room, turned on the light, threw off her covers, tore her clothes off, and beat her with a cord. She told her best friend about the beating, and her best friend’s mother who called DCFS to report the mother’s actions. She was removed from her home and had to be accompanied to her clinic appointment by a DCFS case worker.
