Here's What I think:
Child abuse is just plain SICK and WRONG.
I mean, seriously, who'd want to beat thier own child?
Especially people as young as 3 or 4.
This is JUST my opinion so dont go bad-mouthing it but:
I think they're bad people
. Either that or mental.
I'm guessing some people don't know that child abuse has been going on,
since they never experienced it themselves.
Who would WANT To?!?!
Real Life Story:
Hinton Meyer is a cute, almost year old baby and would never do anything to hurt
anybody, but that is not true for his attacker. My cousin and his wife had known her
for several years and she had never seemed the type of person who would do anything
to hurt a child because she was friendly and had children of her own. Well, she had
babysat for Hinton before, but this time was different. We do not know exactly why
she did what she did, but we do know that he was thrown to the floor with such force,
that his skull was shattered. It was still baby skull soft, so for it to be
shattered, he had to be thrown very hard. He got a brain clot because of it, and by
the time the police got there, he was unconcious.
When he got to the hospital, they were told that he was not guaranteed to make it
because of the injuries. He went into surgery, where they removed the brain clot and
removed a piece of his skull. They do not know if he has brain damage, or will have
to relive the first year of his life over again. (walking, crawling, talking, etc.)
The pressure in his brain kept building to dangerous levels and we all thought that
he wouldnt make it. It looked pretty grim. Today, his condition has improved. He has
half opened one of his eyes and they are almost ready to remove a device that
moniters his brain pressure. They say that it could take from 3 to 6 months before
they can even start to reconstruct his skull.
What struck me the most about this is that in a fit of rage, somone could have killed
an innocent child. The lady who did this is being charged with child abuse and the
details of the case are so terrible, that my cousin will not even tell his wife or
anybody else about it. Child abuse is something that we hear on the news, and deal
with when we decide who to watch our kids. It is sick and i cannot believe that
something like this is so wide spread in America, and all over as well.
What made the situation better was my cousins wife's faith during this saga. She has
started a web page that she writes on to update anybody who is interested in his
condition, and in doing so, her faith in God has been strangthened because she has to
rely on him through this. It is amazing how well she is handling this, even though
sometimes she has her down days.
