There have been lots of ups and downs, but I am thankful for true friends. Those who are intelligent enough to realize that there must be nothing to the lies when 4 separate trained professionals question our daughter and check out the information in a 1 inch binder I handed over to them and, they found nothing. But some still think they know better than a Child Protective Services Worker, a police detective, a child advocate, and a therapist.
I am thankful that this this is the exception. We have a lot of support and had a great time with our true friends last night.
Will be returning to somewhere in NC in the next few weeks. Those in charge feel it is best to remove us from this environment due to the tension, but are looking for a place to send us for work. We will be able to return at the end of next year when our current class session is no longer here. We were privately told by one of the officers that even though we don’t see how this will help us, it is best to get our daughter away from the other children around here (she witnessed our daughter being bullied and came to us).
I have peace knowing we will have jobs somewhere and they will take care of us through this.
Someone sits at a desk making decisions
that affect other’s lives with only paperwork,
no human faces to plead their case.
This is to “help” my family.
We don’t need that kind of help.
Maybe this someone should have been
in our home last night as we held our
two crying children. Maybe this someone should
have seen my 11 year old son try to give his
dad the $75 dollars in his piggy bank to
help us move.
Thanks but no thanks. We don’t need
your kind of help.
Hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the nightmare of the last 3 weeks. I still can’t believe how things get so spun out of control over a child eavesdropping. Then her mom reports it to social services. I don’t even know how it all began. My husband and I have not had an argument in months. It must have been Him and my daughter yelling over homework. Well, whatever it was got even more spun up into nasty, unrepeatable accusations against my husband (he can drive me nuts, but he would never do something so disgusting). It was so humiliating to be called to my kid’s school alone and be greeted by a Child Protective Services worker and a detective. My knees went weak.
Then, my husband had to move out of the home for 12 days until everything was sorted out. While he was away, I was called in to meet with the school president and the head of personnel. They grilled me. And of course the gossip and rumors started. People began to treat me like some dumb blind woman in denial, but finally the truth came out. Now people have become kind and supportive.
It still is not over yet, though. This situation made it all the way to the territorial commander who has the official final say as to whether we can stay.
All is pretty much back to normal except my daughter will NEVER play with the child who started all of this ever again! I’m just so thankful God revealed the truth.
“But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.” Matthew 10:26
Things ate slowly getting back to normal. We still don’t know how it will end. but my hubby is home and I don’t feel like I’m going to throw up. I still can’t believe how mean some people can be. It especially sucks when you can’t defend yourself, and you are made to feel like a horrible mother.
If there is any positive in this whole mess it would have to be I sure got closer to God. I spent the past couple weeks on my knees praying. That’s for sure.
It is now in your hands. Lord.
You gave us words before the council of men.
Praying for the same compassion and mercy
we received from those in worldly authority.
