Children do not have rights...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I agree with you, Heather; children do not have any rights, despite what politicians and bureaucrats love to try and make us believe. Thank you for sharing your son's story with my visitors and me. There isn't anything I can offer you, except a place to vent, and to tell you to keep things as normal as possible with your son when you're with him. When he sees you're upset, he'll be even more upset himself. Make your place his soft place to land. Perhaps one of my visitors can provide additional help through the comments here.

i wonder?
by: aka christina

i will never understand of what EVER happened to loving, caring, devotion, and protection of what should be normal for a woman to have....i love kids, im 23 with 3 kids under the age of 3...but even on most stressfulL of days, i would never harm or abuse my children, i love them dearly with of all of my being....and for a person to be able to allow their sick and perverted selfs to touch a child---they are the people that i pray to THE LORD JESUS..... THAT HE SENDS THEM TO HELL!! I DONT CARE WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU HAVE DONE---THE ONES GUILTY OF THAT HORRIBLE DESCUSTING CRAP WILL BURN!!!

Sadly we'll keep hearing and reading about your son's story
by: Anonymous

Your child is your child, Sysyems do fail children like your's who naturally relate to you what is happening him in what is supposed to be a safe place for him to grow and mature in. Please don't give up hope, don't quit, trying to get what is your son's right. The right to be loved and cherished as you his natural mother would see to it that he was. My heart goes out to you and your son. Always believe in yourself. Darlene's words should give you hope too. read them and if possible act on them. A mother will always do what is right for her natural child.
