The first phone call home can be dangerous, especially when a woman's time in the shelter is running out and she has no place to go. The man cries, "Baby, where are you? I've been going crazy without you. You've got to come home, baby. Baby, I love you." Hearing things she wants to believe, a woman may be overwhelmed with confusion. Her resolve to stay away may weaken.
