It's been a whirl wind of a week and I wanted to write and let you know what was going on. I now have all my girls back, yes, ALL of them. Even Maria, who we thought was dead. Susie was rescued when the house she was being held in was raided for producing child porn. She was being held in the basement, and Maria was being held in a room in the upper part of the house. More children were also discovered in the house. Susie has been kept in the hospital because she has not been cared for in quite some time. The doctor said it appeared she had not been given food or water in at least a week. It's a miracle she is still alive. Both girls have shown signs of having been molested and raped although Maria won't let any of the medical staff get their hands on her and only speaks to me or her sisters. Tomorrow they are going to sedate her so a through examination can be conducted, so keep us in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. When Lacey had this done, I got so upset I started having contractions. The doctor said if that happened again he was going to put me in the hospital and run some tests, and I don't need that right now. I need to be at home taking care of my girls. Please tell Ronee that Susie and both her sister are safe now. I am sure as soon as Susie is able, she will email Ronee herself. I doubt she will talk about her ordeal much at this point. She shuts down whenever I bring it up. It's going to take her years of couseling to be able to deal with everything she's gone through and I know she will never be the same no matter what. It doesn't matter to me though. I will love her wholeheartedly regardless of how much she recovers.
I am not much of a TV person. I very seldom even turn it on. Even my girls are more keen on playing "pretend" or reading their books than being planted in front of the TV. I guess they get that from me. I was never much to stick them in front of the TV when they were little so they would be out of my hair. I felt like it was my job to entertain them.
I'm happy for you, adopting another child. Is there any end to your compassion? This will make how many children now? How do you do it all? I can barely manage to properly care for my three, soon to be four.
Well, I had better to and get some rest before the girls all wake up and start demanding my attention. I hope all of your children are well, as well as Bill and Yourself. I will write again when I can, but I am not sure when that will be. Until next time, take care of yourself.
The baby is due in two and a half months. Kendra is throwing me a baby shower next weekend. This will be a whole new experience for me.
