Please keep us in your prayers

Today we made the most difficult phone call we've ever made. We called CPS for our great niece and great nephew. We get them usually every other weekend. Their mother does drugs and is in and out of their lives. Their father has primary custody and they live with their father's mother. Incidents have been mentioned over the years that would make us raise our eyebrow but it wasn't until last week that we decided something needed to be done. We found out that the father hits the 12 year old boy in the head and sometimes he feels ringing in his ears. He also will grab his chin and holds it so hard that it is numb afterward. He doesn't spend any time with his kids...always with his girlfriend. When we asked the boy why he didn't talk to his counselor at school about this, he said that he was afraid that if he said something, his father would hurt him more. The 9 year old girl doesn't get punished as much, but she said there have been times when her father has put bruises on her. The father has a history of domestic violence as noted in the public records of our county. We tried to talk to him about it but he ended up cussing us out and told us to go ahead and call CPS. We made the call today. We know he will now keep the kids from seeing us. Our fear is that without us in their lives, they will have nobody to turn to, to talk to about anything, and to just be there for them. Somebody had to be their champion. Nobody else wanted to get involved. We care more about the children than any relationships with the parents. It's all about the kids. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you.

You did the right thing, possibly, cps can place them with you. They have programs to help out. The children, very definitely need someone who loves them. I lost my daughter to a drug overdose, when her son was 5. Luckily,he has a family that loves him. I applaude you for placing the call, never have regrets.

I'm sorry for your loss. Having kids feel safe, secure and loved is such a big thing when they're young. That's my goal for mine. Thank you.
