Try to find some resources for you and the children...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Stephanie, you and your husband can't do this alone. These children need some form of counselling, and the two of you need guidance on how to deal with such traumatized children. I strongly urge you to get in touch your your local Department of Children and Families and find out what resources are available to you, your husband, and your children. If you don't get satisfaction from a lower level DCF worker, then go up the chain of command. Contact your state government representative if you must. Go federal if you have to. But don't try tackle this all by yourselves, otherwise every person in your family will suffer.
