Please when you are done please talk about these abused children...........

 

Is this America's only legalized child abuse?

 

The court ordered silencing of the abusing of the chilren......

 

What would you do?

 

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

 

This is suppose to every little girls life.

 

What happens when life is not like that?

 

What if your life is filled with constant abuse by the people who suppose to protect you?

 

For little Katelynn of Indiana, her life is filled with this from a father, stepmother and father's family; everyone but her the relatives that love her have been deined the ability to see her.

 

What happens when the police will not stop this?

 

Than try Child Protection Service, but they will not stop this either.

 

The next thing to do is go to the court.

 

What would you do if the Child Protection Services and the court helped the abusers hurt her?

 

The media might work but they ignore majority of average people.

 

In this search for help, several politicians ignored or said stop bothering them.

 

If these people will not help little katelynn than who will?

 

Will this little girl have to pay the ultimate price for these adults mistakes?

 

What will you do?

 

This is Indiana's Shame Teardrops for Katelynn
