Confused about what would be best for Turtle, Taylor talks to Mattie, who encourages Taylor to look  at the situation from a different perspective: to ask herself whether she wants to try to raise Turtle.  Taylor and Mattie's conversation emphasizes that mothers can only do their best to keep their  children safe; nobody can protect a child from the world. During a visit from Taylor, Cynthia realizes that Taylor has made the decision to keep Turtle and  gives Taylor the name of a man to contact in Oklahoma after she locates Turtle's relatives. Note that  Taylor asks Cynthia about the cameo brooch that Cynthia often wears, wondering if Cynthia has to  shop at the Salvation Army because she doesn't have a lot of money or if she likes "rummaging  through other people's family heirlooms." Taylor's comment is a metaphor for Cynthia's job as a  social worker.
