Child Abuse - Silenced By Fear

by Nan
(Pennsylvania, USA)

Protecting an abused child has taught me many things I was not aware of. Although the child abuse was reported and documented by CPS workers, in the final analysis, his mother was able to silence the truth of the matter by threatening the child with total estrangement from his entire family. She resides in HUD housing with her abuser who is an illegal resident, yet even though structural damage has been documented by her housing specialist, the situation remains unchanged. The mother continues to suffer at the hands of her abuser and constantly lies by calling her son a liar, and intimidation when he told us about the abuse at the hands of "J". We have decided that we are fighting a losing battle with the inept and unfair laws governing abused children in this country. May God have mercy on the precious children, and may his wrath fell the souls of the wicked who cause their suffering.
