TPTT It's like old Soviet Russia...misinformation, no recourse to justice, no transparency ...and most of all FEAR. Would the brothers and sisters have ignored you if not for the fear of being also marked? Like playground bullies the other children "join in The bullying" for fear of being picked on themselves.
Would Dark Knight's cleaning lady's "bible reading" have brought her to the same conclusion without the elders telling her what to think first? Again her fear of being similarly "picked on" prevents her from doing what's right and in her best interests.
Dark Knight 12 years ago this week my boys were born 2 and a half pounds and three respectively....they stayed 5 weeks in NICU. They are now big strapping boys just starting year ( grade)7!
You have the best and happiest years of your lives coming up...enjoy them! Treasure every day, there is no joy like that of a young familie's first years💕
