Crack Whore II

“Have you heard from Naomi?” This question has been asked quite a lot this week. Every time I am asked I can feel my stomach quickly tighten and a frown replaces the smile I had on my face. “No” I quietly say

Last week after I posted my blog about Naomi, titled “Crack Whore” in just one day I had over 400 hits. It still amazes me how many people Google those 2 words.

Yesterday while I sat at the County jail in Columbus Georgia to be taken up in the tower to see my ladies I received a text from Missy. <<On a mission, will explain later, I will be careful>> I knew she made contact from what she said and that she was on her way to see Naomi.

I was committed to my ladies in cell block 319 and I wanted so bad to go where they were meeting but I also knew I had to trust Missy to remember everything I taught her. She did say she was being careful and I knew that was my clue to take a deep breath and pray!

Missy told Naomi to meet her in a safe place; I found out later. Inside I smiled when she was briefing me on what happened. That was one very strict order I gave her and she followed it. Check for Missy!

In a nutshell, Naomi has been staying in a rather very nice Apartment complex in town with her pimp. She’s shooting up ice and crack and being sold out for prostitution and drugs. While they chatted Missy gathered more information from Naomi; not to be nosy, but to help us keep up with her. (Another check)

The two of them went to get something to eat. Naomi hadn’t eaten any food in 3 days. As they talked Missy told her that we spent hours looking for her. Naomi doubted that we were even close to where she was but that doubt was dispelled after Missy told her names and locations.

Sitting there stunned she asked Missy how we found all the information out. She knew and we knew that the drug world is a very private world and you either are a user, buyer, pusher, prostitute or a cop to know the information we were able to gather.

We of course are none off that list however we do know God. Naomi knows the same God and she also knows  “OUR” God would help us all out if  she needed us. She covered her face and turned her head.

She sat there Missy explained with shame and guilt so tightly wrapped around her precious heart that at this point she sees no chance at turning herself into the police or working with us to get into a drug program. She’s a caged animal desperate for an escape from her nightmare and we worry. Missy reminded her that desperate people do desperate things. Naomi simply shook her head to indicate she understood.

They drove about 8 miles to a motel that Naomi will be able to stay at for a week. Missy got the room number (check). Another prostitute was working out of the room when they arrived and the pimp was inside. Missy stayed in her car and took Naomis word for it.

When our lady got out of the car she turned to Missy as she was closing the car door and said, “Thank you for hunting for me.” She closed the door. Missy drove away.

How could we not hunt for her? Jesus would and besides he hunted for me. It is the least we could do for Naomi. She has to know, she just HAS to know that some one loves her. Otherwise she can become so dangerous. Dangerous to the point she’ll find another way never to go to prison.

Tomorrow I plan to go find my lady one more time. I have allowed a day to go by to prove to her we aren’t going to turn her in. She did tell Missy one other thing though and that was she knows that IF we thought she needed to be arrested again; for her own good, we would do it and she would understand.

If she needed arrested to stay alive… I would.

  1. It’s not that 400 people googled “Crack Whore”. A very popular Mommy Blogger put a link to this website in her blog last week. At least, that’s how I got here! I’ve only seen a little bit of your blog – but you all are doing a wonderful thing. I’d like to say thank you!
