I was going to stay away from this one today, but I just couldn’t help it. Today our son would have been 17, I was doing ok up until a few minutes ago. This morning I was able to get the boys ready for school and bake the cupcakes for tonight. Keeping busy doing my usual blog surfing and news reading when the monster called ANGER hit me.

In loving memoryIn the news story after story of children being neglected or abused. The mother in Ocala that is so popular today, yeah her kids are brats, but their still YOUR kids! You don’t just walk away from them you must cherish every single moment you have with them. Guidance, Morals, and Discipline is a much better solution than abandonment. The article that really ticked me off was about a five month old baby that was left strapped in a car seat for 8 DAYS! The baby died of starvation weighing only 10 pounds. In both these cases the parents were arrested for neglect.

Why does life work like this? I know it is a question that will never be answered, but it just seems so wrong that parents like that even have kids. If there is some “higher” power up there in the big blue sky, why would he allow bad parents to have kids while taking away from the good parents?

Why do we have to spend another year celebrating a birthday at the cemetery instead of in our loving home?

It’s Just Not Right!

    I could never understand stories like these. So many people have lost children and so many people want children but can not have them. If a parent is can really get to the point that they want to hurt their children or neglects the children because they “get in the way” Put them up for adoption. Let the children grow up knowing what love is let them get cared for by someone that wants them around and will teach them how to love and how great it is to be loved.
    I pray for you and your family I can’t even imagine how difficult this day is for you all. Happy Birthday, Dustin, know that you are loved.

    Reading your post brought a tear to my eye. My feelings are with you guys. As a teacher I just can’t understand how people can treat children in that way. It’s just not right.
