writing this makes me Physically ill

A few days ago, I asked you to pray for my best friend and her family. At the time I was not at liberty to tell why, but I can now.

My friend and her husband found out that their two oldest children, a 7 year old girl and 4 year old boy, have been molested/sexually abused by their daycare/babysitter's 11-year old son. He has also molested at least ten other children, and other families are still coming forward.

At this time, the State of Ga won't do anything with him -- having primarily to do with the rights of a minor.

Please continue to remember my friend and her husband, asked God to strengthen them, comfort them, and be with them.

this makes me sick and ashamed of our legal system! From what I remember in my counseling classes, the parent can be held responsible for her minor child's actions...esp. if it was under HER care! Tell your friend to look into all options...and if not go to the media!

Oh my goodness. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.

I know that this kid is only 11, but there are still no excuses for him. He is 11, and that is old enough to know better. I can't believe that the system isn't doing anything. He needs to get help and be somewhere where he can't be around anyone that he could potentially hurt. I will be praying for your friend and her family
