This just breaks my heart...

I'm sure some of you have heard of Jeanette Maples. I grew up down the street from where she went to school, my brother, went to school with her. This absolutely breaks my heart, and enrages me. Something SHOULD have been done.

  • The DHS is just as guilty as the parents in this case. Repeated attempts to try and get help for this child were ignored. This is absolutely horrific!! I can not even imagine that poor girl enduring that abuse and torture everyday for years, wishing, hoping, and praying for help and she was ignored! Makes me sick!!!
