...since I last posted, but so much has been going on around here.
There's not only the day to day chaos that this household experiences but our dear sweet neighbors had to up and move to Michigan. They found out that their son-in-law had been doing unmentionable things to their two grandsons (ages 1 & 2). The son-in-law is now in jail, their daughter is in a safe house and their grandsons are in foster care. The monster claimed that his wife not only knew about the unentionable things but was a part of it, which is false. But the courts have to play it safe and put the boys in foster care.
Here's where the move came into play.
Our neighbors wanted to get custody of the boys but in order to do so they had to live in Michigan. So of course they moved.
This whole situation has affected me as I didn't think it would. I'm friends with my neighbors daughter but not what I'd call really good friends. But still to hear what had happened and the pain she was going through I couldn't help but be affected.
It's the closest I've ever come to anything like this and just the thought that that monster had spent time with my children (never alone thank goodness) made me sick to my stomach. I just hope against all hope that those boys are young enough that they can forget all that has happened and grow into healthy productive members of society and not turn into the monster that their father has become.
