Today They Pay

My kids' Aunt called this morning at 7:30AM, she was very upset about the situation their parents have put all of us in. She is planning a birthday party for her Step Son and became upset knowing we can't attend and have a normal relationship with her family until things proceed. We talked for several minutes and she seemed to calm down. About 20 minutes after we hung up, my phone rang again and without looking I answered thinking it must be her again. I was wrong and I believe the Aunt has some psychic ability that we were bot unaware of previously. It was the Det. calling to tell me she WILL be arresting the parents today. She has the warrant in hand and is just confirming their address before heading out with a bunch of officers.

She called me back a few minutes ago to update me on the best news of all. She will be charging them with 3 counts of Aggravated Child Molestation (3 had to be dropped) and 6 counts of Child Molestation each. Wait, it gets better. My children had reported for years that they had been molested multiple times by a man named Tex, he is developmentally delayed and couldn't be charged. This made no sense to the Det. or myself but it is what everyone believed, until today. He will be arrested and charged with 3 counts of Aggravated Child Molestation TODAY! I am currently pacing the floor waiting for the Det. to call me and tell me it is done, she promised she wouldn't go home today until all 3 are behind bars.

HOORAY...finally your children can feel safe to be themselves and finally really begin to heal...what a tremendous load lifted off their small shoulders.

I hope that you can now feel comfortable giving them back the family that they lost. Tudu you did more then good.

I'm literally holding back tears. I'm praying that the parents are arrested and get more than just "weekends". Praying for your family...but especially your kids.
