For those of you who were so helpful in the hard time we were going through in my sister in laws case of abuse, i have some really good news.
She is 14 yrs old and her mother is a jw, totally active witness, her mother married the girls father after he served only 14 yrs of a 25 to life sentence for manslaughter. He was released because the prison closed down and the others are overcrowded. The mother married him, and after only 3 months of being out he started physically abusing the daughter(my hubby's sister). The last time was when he punched her in the jaw, and I called the school, and the school called child protective services. She was removed from the home that day. She was placed in foster care, only because they would not let her stay with us for her safety, becaue my husband and her father got into a huge fight (physical) and he threatened to kill my husband.
Well after a month of her being in foster care, we went to court yesterday, and her mother didnt even show up for the hearing, she was to busy trying to get her no good husband out of jail. Yes, finally after 35 days after he hit her, he was arrested and is now sitting in jail, awaiting trial. $25,000 bond. hahahahaha cant get out. He is a felon on paper, on paroll, i hope they send his rotten ass back to prison. I still will never understand how his mom could marry a man that beat the crap out of her and her sons when they were young, but to each their own i guess.
The good news is we got full custody of her yesterday, and she is aloud to come and stay with us. Her father has no visitation rights, and the mother only supervised visits once a month.
I am so happy with the decision, and she is one happy little girl. Thank you to all of you who were there to help me through this time.
