Dorothy Smith works for the Cuyahoga County Welfare Department in Oeveland, Ohio. She works at home, for her job is to care for children who are waiting to be adopted. Although it is a foster home for them and, because of that, a temporary one, the home that Mrs. Smith makes is full of love. Throughout a typical day in their lives, Mrs. Smith and the children express in countless ways, often without words, how well love brings them all together and lets them live, even for a short while, as a family. In the program love appears as sharing, physical contact, discipline, concern, and the provision of food, shelter, and clothing. Though the emphasis is on love, the lack of love in these children's lives before they came to live with Mrs. Smith is also apparent.
