You're a very special, caring and compassionate sister. Your step sisters aren't the only ones who need help. You need help dealing with the stress of all of this. I will tell you to forget getting the Sheriff involved. Their role in these types of cases is minimal, if at all. I'd go so far as to say they're pretty much useless in these types of cases. Sometimes reported cases get lost in the shuffle with CPS, so they need to be contacted again, only this time, escalate to someone higher up than an intake worker. And please contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about how all this is affecting you. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency.

Keep being a positive role model and support system for N--. Even though you may not be able to affect change in her environment, your support and encouragement about who she is as a person and her qualities and gifts can go such a long way. Keep showing her the love you feel for her. In this way, she's at the very least got someone in her life who is a positive influence; and right now she needs that more than you can ever know. Thank you for sharing your sister's story with my visitors and me, Ashley. I send you and both these little girls love, light and positive energy.

P.S. I removed your email address, as I do not permit any personal information like this on my site. That's in order to ensure your safety here, Ashley. Any comments that my visitors may have for you will have to be shared via the comments link on this page. I thank you for your understanding.

Ashley,this is scary. If your little sister is afraid,she probably has good reason to be. Be her voice. Call CPS over and over and over if you have to until they HAVE to pay attention. Too many children are killed because they have no one to speak for them. Please don't give up.
