When a blog entry that starts out
How does this happen?
My nephew is 5 months old and just got out of the hospital with a broken pelvis, broken ribs, a broken arm and a broken hand. FIVE MONTHS OLD!!
it does a pretty good job of grabbing my full attention. If you want to read the whole thing, pop on over to Susan's and check it out. The short of it is that her nephew has been horrible abused and the state of Kentucky is giving him back to the apparently very unreliable family of his abuser - HIS OWN MOTHER! - instead of to Susan's sister who is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker! The whole story is so unreal!
Please pray for his safety and protection. While we never know the whole story, this one sounds pretty cut and dried. I'm afraid I'm one of those radicals that believes that, especially in cases like this one, the abusive parents should have to suffer whatever the child suffered - AND WORSE!
Thanks for your prayers.
