Q: how do I search for my name?

A: Do you know?

I guess this photo might need a little explanation. My grandma has severe alzheimers disease. She never wants my mom to leave at night. She'll beg us to bring her 'home' which she thinks is where she lived as a little girl. My mom will try to talk to her and tell her she'll be back tommorow and that she needs to go home to her family, but we almost always have to leave her still crying and mad.
