read me!

This is actually my third post today but I feel like its the most important. recently we, my children and neices, have been the victims of a child molester. Luckily for me I never gave him enought time with Kenya to do too much damage. the same cannot be said for a few of the others in may family. This last couple of weeks has been a nightmare trying to catch him without him knowing that we knew. Yesterday he was finally arrested and is now in jail, waiting for his trial. Unfortunately, we all have to go and be witnesses.
the reason I wanted to tell everyone is so you and take steps with your own children. Have access to any e-mail accounts of Facebook accounts your child might have. this is the way he was finally caught. there are many web sights to help look for sighs that your child might be showing. I think the most important thing is to let your child know they can come to you and tell you what is happening, with out fear that they might be laughed at of not believed. Try to teach your children how to be survivors rather than victims.
The sad thing is that this man was a member of the family and trusted as one. I didn't know what he was involved in until I read some of the e-mails he sent.
Sorry this was not very fun with cute pictures but its so important, specially for my family right now.


  1. Esther, that's terrifying! It makes me want to never let Evie leave the house. I'm so sorry that Kenya had to go through any of it; I know it's terrible and hard to deal with. Thank you though, for the reminder to be vigilant and informed about my children. I really hope things work out and all the girls can be happy and healthy.

  2. Okay, now I'm going to have to call and find out who in the world did this and make sure they aren't on our side of the family! SCARY!!!! For Kenya, and all of you.

  3. good job eshter. thanks for having me over. love you guys!
