please help victims heal from parental child abuse October 08, 2008 9:46 AM
Take a stand, please?!
There is need for this law! Please stand up and help make a change!
As I sat in court, I heard yet another sad story of parents abusing their children. The Grandparents had the children for the last 15 months. The children had gone to visit them and started talking about what the Dad was doing to them. Come to find out it was also the Mother (mostly sexual stuff). They took the children (3 of them) and all was ok. The parents are on bond until the trial. While these babies were staying with the grandparents, the state (DC decided that supervised visits (with the biological parents) at the park would be appropriate. NOT! The grandparents placed the children in foster care because they could not handle the thought of what would happen to them on a visitation.
Who knows where this story goes? Where will these babies end up? How will they heal and learn to trust the world that surrounds them?
I hear these stories all the time. Maybe I hear them as God's little way of telling me to keep pushing for this law. I have let it go a couple of times because no one is interested. I am NOT going to stop until it is a law.
Please look at this law and help. Please pass it along to friends. Thank you so much.
