I mentioned how my emotions have been on a wild ride in the past week...Maybe you all deserve an explanation.Jesus tells us that if any offend one of these little ones, it were better if a millstone be hung on his neck and dropped in the middle of the sea...OK, my husband and I had first hand knowledge to a possible child abuse case - in this case the victim was an adult, living in a foster situation. And we were proved to be right. The fallout of it was what we feared would happen, and it did. Why did we not intervene? We tried... Now I have to deal with sadness, anger, frustration. Yet the outcome may work to bring about restoration... In reality, the solution to this situation is what we had been suggesting...Sometimes I think ignorance would be bliss...but Christianity is one that confronts evil, sin and that means there will be war. Paul tells us we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities and rulers of darkness...and war ain't no fun.
Perhaps there is one thing I should clarify...the abuse I am talking about is not physical nor sexual but emotional done via verbal. It was awful... And how is one to get help to fix this? Even for those who witnessed it? The perpetrators are religious folks...there you go...

QUOTE:"If you were to ask me what I believe harmed me the most? I would say the words!"No doubt.. When you are told you are not much by an authority figure you will believe it and act like it. So it was with this lady. I had to work hard to get her to believe otherwise. But I was not done with her...I could see the devastating effects this abuse was having on her, the bad choices she made because of it. QUOTE:"May He also show the foster parents their error and grant them true repentance."I hope so. There are many people praying for this situation. This girl has been so damaged emotionally it will take nothing less then a miracle to make her whole...Appreciate your testimony, Amrkelly.ginnyrose
