It’s been a while…

Wow…I can’t believe that I haven’t updated in so long.  Everything is going so well. Ellie is happy and healthy. Life is good! 

One thing that saddens me is learning so much about other families who have lived my same nightmare.  It would surprise you to find out just how prevalent false allegations of child abuse really are.  Families are destroyed.  Lives are torn apart.  People go bankrupt trying to prove their innocence.  This is all because there are over zealous doctors out there trying to protect children.  But are they really even protecting the children?  Does it protect a child to tear him away from the only people he has ever lived with?  Does it protect a child to place him in a foster home…with 10 other children who become a paycheck?  No.  The human body is so complex.  There are so many unknowns.  There may no be medical explanations for every injury.  But that doesn’t automatically mean that the caretakers hurt the child.  All it means is that the doctors haven’t done their job to find a cause.  Doctors PRACTICE medicine.  They are not Gods. They are not infallible.  They make mistakes.  It just isn’t fair when those mistakes destroy homes.
