Those at the women’s shelter put her up, helped her find a job.She was advised not to use Jayne Morris but her maiden name and middle name. She would be J. Carol Elder.
She went to work, came home to the shelter.
It took a month for her to find a place, move in and begin to feel like Carol Elder.
She knew better than to contact George’s mother. Knew better than to contact anyone.
No roots, no connection, yet.
