Oh that poor girl... Her brother and her cousin, and her mother told her NOT TO TELL???? Thank God someone told, and kudos to the little girl for being brave enough to tell the truth to the Human Services Dept.. I pray she can stay with someone she perhaps already knows, and if not find a loving home with people who will actually protect her, and care for her as parents should...
I will never understand mothers who protect one child at the expense of another... no matter how hard it may be. I’m glad the LEOs are NOT letting the Mother off the hook for failure to report. There is obviously some deeply disturbing stuff going on in that house/family. I wonder if they can also charge the mother with abuse and neglect in relation to this. I certainly hope so.
My prayers for this young girl. It’s a horrible, horrible thing to happen - especially at such a young age. And, I can’t imagine how she must feel when her Mom told her not to tell... *tears*
Truly this is the worst possible outcome for her.
