Hard Work


It's not fun researching all these children that have been murdered by the romantic partner of a single mother.  I know this is only one segment of the population of children murdered.  And I know for every child whose life is actually taken, there are probably 500 or so that are being abused that we don't get to read about in the paper.

This takes up a lot of time and it is very depressing.  I read into the stories and get to know the people involved, sometimes by actually reaching out and talking to family or friends.  I continue to reach out to organizations and people involved with similar situations.  Not many people reach back.  It's a very difficult topic, but God has put it on my plate, and I cannot ignore it.  My best option is to TRY to do something.  I have been talking to people and expressing my ideas for change.  I am working through my own emotions and so my voice is not as steady as I would like.  But I'm getting there.

I found out the other day that Wesley Hadsell's trial for a 2005 rape and kidnapping in Ohio, may get moved to November.  It has gotten moved several times and I am waiting for that to finish in order to find out what Virginia may do.  I just want this to be over.   I want truth and justice for Anjelica.  I want to be able to talk about everything freely without worrying about any games that man is playing.  Most of all I want to be able to move forward with helping that NEXT CHILD.  Once this case is complete, then maybe people will listen.

I have still felt blessed though, as I breath and pray.  I also realize that it is not my place to judge or seek vengeance.  I only want us all to learn from the mistakes that have been made.  I am more angry at the system for allowing this to happen and for ignoring me, than at the broken individuals who made bad choices.
