All Over the News?


The Detective and AT mentioned something yesterday that kept me up all night worrying. Both mentioned not to speak to any media when they call. WTF? The AT went into a bit of an explanation but I failed to ask the detective anything and just agreed. The AT said that when they are arrested it will be all over the news b/c it is a big case with many serious charges. The reporters will dig right in. He is concerned that b/c we have an open adoption with extended family they may mention their new names or area of town we live and we can be located that way. I sure hope not, the kids will be devastated. We talked about last night about how they are heroes for telling us what happened. They hadn't thought of it that way before and you could just see their heads held a bit higher and their attitudes improved. They are heroes, they saved other children from being hurt by telling.

Ruthie told me last night out of no where that she is very angry her parents are lying and she admitted they are bad people for the first time. SHe wasn't upset, that alone is huge for her, she was very matter of fact. She is mad, they are bad. Of course then she didn't go to sleep but she didn't lay there and cry either. Yeah!

Can't hurt to go ahead and mention to the extended family that you don't want the new names or the city you live in mentioned to anybody. Better to close the barn door before the cows get out, ya know.
