Amy Mason is trying to make a go of life as a Texan. She and her young son, Clark, moved from San Diego to Houston at the start of the year – mere weeks before society came to a halt to limit the spread of the new coronavirus.

Now the pair is in Fort Worth without a support system, and without preschool. Amy has chosen not to enroll Clark in Fort Worth ISD, at least not yet.
