sorry if this makes you cry...


Turn volume up

I just had to post this, it moved me to tears. NO child deserves any abuse and I can't stand it. I volunteer in a women's and children's shelter in a nearby city and it is just so heartbreaking what some children have endured. It is one of those situations where I want to do more to help these children, but I don't know what else to do. My husband and I have always said after one more biological child, we would adopt or even have foster children. But there are just so many children who need help. How can we educate these parents so this can stop? It just breaks my heart.

Oh my God, did that just make me cry like a baby. There is one thing I cannot stand is child abuse. One of the hardest things for me when I was working as a Social Worker were the abuse cases. I hated them. They made me sick to my stomach and that is why when I got pregnant I decided not to return to the clinic where I worked. Thank God there are people like you out there that continue to give a voice to those who cannot. Bless your gigantic heart!!

My sister is a social worker for a local Abuse Shelter. The stories that she shares are heartbreaking.

I'm afraid to watch- but I'll try to muster up the courage. I feel the EXACT same way you described- overwhelmed. I try to tell myself that at least we are raising two children with love but my heart still breaks.

With regard to educating the parents, I know through my current placement with the Jr. League that there are several organizations tackling this problem. But then my mind wanders to other countries... ugggg!
