Cyr was a bit slow and secretive with her final letter to the Judge today. I was cooking dinner last night while several girls were finishing up. They are all about about the same thing, Don't let them out b/c they will hurt other kids and kidnap us. They told us they would. They deserve to be in jail. Cyr's was not only longer but sharde more insight. The thing that surprised me (almost b/c she has hinted around at it for awhile) is that if he lets her out she will go have sex with men for money, just like before and her father used to punch her face, hard then tell her she deserved it.
The other kids were just talking about old times when Ella asked them if they remembered that one time he chased her (she has CP and has trouble running well or with any speed) and their father kept hitting her with his belt. She fell a bunch of times and her just kept after her. She ended up being beaten in the face, arms, legs, back, and butt. She had big "puffy stripes" everywhere. I didn't ask anything, I just kept cooking. I know they are safe now and I dread the things I learn in the future.
They are so excited about visiting their former foster mother today while I am in court.
