Re: Looking 4 Advice on Raising Young Kids from Abusive & Severely Neglectful Backgro

to quickly follow up - - when we went to court to obtain custody of Jon, it was just to obtain custody of Jon, after he'd been left for weeks with someone who couldn't provide & care for him. We had NO idea, getting into this, that these kids were in as bad of shape as they were, we had been living away for 4 years and never knew things had gotten this bad until the person who had Jon, called my MIL, and she shared the info with us. But we were the only family members willing and able to care for him. When we were awarded custody of Jon, the judge removed Ashlyn as well, and asked if we'd take her to, - we couldn't refuse - but we were also under the impression she had been taken care of and again, HAD NO IDEA, she'd basically been tortured since the womb.
