Ok, I asked for prayer for a situation. Without being too graphic, the other night one of our daughters told us that she and the oldest had been mo**sted by a family friend and that it had been going on for approx 6 months at least. This was Friday night. I spent Sat with the girls and police in 2 states. They had to sit through 6 hours of questioning and see a child advocate to record the statements. They needed the details and to be sure the accusation was accurate. Both girls stories lined up as they were questioned individually. On Sunday morning, Protective Services was at my door bright and early. She needed the story again. Then she had to talk with all 4 kids privately. She was convinced the 2 were being truthful and the other 2 had not been violated.

The deal was that the detective was bringing the jerk in Sat night for questioning. Based on what he said, he might be arrested on the spot. Well, the dude didn't confess then. They had him come back for a "few more questions" yesterday am. They got him to basically confirm the girls stories without him having a clue. For the moment, he thinks he has fooled them. I am praying this thing will go quickly now. I don't want it dragging on. He will be tried in the town that that little boy Christopher Barrious was killed by that sexual predator in. It is a tiny town. I am praying for favor for the girls so he will get time for his violations.

I have counseling set up for the girls on Thursday. We get to pick who they see. I wanted a Christian experienced with kids and this. I have gone on something to control my emotions and hopefully get my blood pressure down. It was 150/105 yesterday. Chris is amazingly not killing him yet. I am still praying he will stay in control of his emotions. Needless to say, we still have a long road. Please continue to pray for our family. Thanks guys.

Kristi, first of all, my heart breaks for your daughters but I commend them on standing up and telling you. It is a hard and vicious thing to have to confront as a youngster. Kristi, I will be lifting you, your daughters, and your whole family up in this matter. May God put his ever loving arms around you and hold your family close. ((HUG)) If you need me for anything, please knoe that I am here praying.

Your sister in Christ,
Robin

OHMY! I am so sorry that your wors nightmare(as a parent) as come true. I hope that your darling children aren't scared for life. I admire you for being so strong. I would've been in jail for murder by now...no joke. I will pray that the scum bag does is time. I must also commend you on being so nice while explaining this situation to us. These are your children and I am not even thinking nicely right now. BTW~ Take care of yourself. Your children need you right now more than anything. You seem to be the rock of the family. I wish you the best of luck and I hope that this will blow over swiftly.

God will turn this for good. I know. I hate that we are strong enough to bear this. I'm sure in years to come we will see what this was for.

Laura, we live in Fl now, but this happened in Ga. Therefore, it will be tried up there.
