Thanks! We have been in the custody battle just over a year, following the Mom's "boyfriend" who inflicted excessive bruisings on our GD. Since she was 2 1/2 at the time, it was his word against hers, but she is very articulate for her age and clearly told her Daddy what happened. Unfortunately, the courts did not rule in our GD's favor. She is still in danger, and so we are holding our breath until he does it again. That is why we are constantly on the lookout for anything abnormal. We do document everything! And, we know as she is able to communicate even more, it will just be a matter of time when all is revealed.
We keep her covered in prayer and our son keeps pressing in the courts. He is military (state-side) and wants to be with his daughter in the worst way. We are praying the legal system will see truth SOON before it's too late.View Thread
That is why we are concerned as grandparents. She did try to put a toy into herself during bath time and I had to tell her not to do that. We see our granddaughter so seldom. Therefore, we are worried what may be happening with her on a daily basis ... bad influences, etc.
We don't want to appear as alarmists, but we are concerned for the emotional and well being of our granddaughter. The last time we raised the red flag that something was "not right", DFACS was called. All that came of that, was we now have very little access to our GD, because the Mom got mad at us. (Our son, the Dad is attempting to gain full custody.)
There is lots behind the scenes, but mostly we question the parenting skills of the Mom to keep our GD SAFE!View Thread
I can understand the "visitor" situation; however, it has created an unhealthy curiosity for my GD. She's been trying to shove things into her body. She even said she and Mommy play a "tampon in your face" game! She's such a copy-cat. She has obviously seen her Mom showering, as she mimics shaving her legs, etc.
We are just not accustomed to this from our 3-yr. old.View Thread
