Baby Richards also known as Xander (or Keyton?) Michael Richards, was seen visiting his Grandpa Steve today at a library in Springfield. I was (anonymously) told that he is VERY cute, he looks simular to Aiden, but -unfortunately- mostly resembles his mother, with short, auburn hair and Tina's hazel eyes. He will be 4 months old on July 3rd! His "foster parents" seem to be taking great care of him & love him very much! They are a young married couple, in their early 20's, with 3 foster children & one of their own! They let an "Aiden Supporter" see him & spoke with them!

POSTED ON THE ORIGINAL AIDEN'S PAGE:

Aiden & Baby Xander (Tina is the one who chose his name on the birth certificate) are NOT in the same home. Aiden is with foster parents who have medical backgrounds, due to the severity of his condition. He still needs someone to feed him, he can not hold his head up on his own, he can not move his arms & hold things in his hands, and he can not sit-up, stand, walk or see. Yes, he IS blind. He is undergoing therapy & needs lots of prayers!

Today (August 20th) I was just browsing through Aiden's NanaJoy's photo albums, when I stumbled upon a new disturbing detail about Aiden's abuse injuries...it said beneathe two pictures in Aiden's Album, "somehow she broke his penis". Yet another horrible act committed by Aiden's mother! The TRUTH will be known at their trial! 


*PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR AIDEN'S FULL RECOVERY & THAT THEY WILL BE TOGETHER SOON!*

As glad as I am to hear baby Xander is doing, I am sorry to hear about Aiden's condition.  He'll pull through and persevere.  I mean, to have even survived is a miracle, and that little boy is a fighter.  Thanks for the update.  I'm hopeful that some day those boys will be reunited.  Once and for all.

I just found this group b/c of someone having it on her page. I don't understand what a little child can do to make a parent/person snap enough to do that kind of harm to them. There are times that I say enough is enough and have to walk away. My children mean the world to me so I can only say that I will keep Aiden in my prayers and even his little brother. That is awful that they will never be able to grow up together.

Great news! Is Aiden blind because of the shit Tina did to him? Had to ask.

Yes, Aiden is blind because of what Tina did to him, although we are still unsure of the complete details (we will find out more info. at the trial). We are not sure if it's due to her shaking him or hitting him, but it is from the trauma that was done to his brain.

Is it permanant? I've heard of this kind of surgery to repair eyesight...

I told my husband about the update and he really wants to pay Tine a visit in jail...won't let him, though, because he would be in jail as well!

We don't know yet. There is still a GAG order on the case, but we were fortunate to come across this information from a local Aiden supporter, and of course, Joyce let us in on a few other details, thankfully! As far as we know, the state is doing everything possible to rehabilitate him, because it was partially their fault! So, I'm not sure if they can correct his vision, but keep in mind, he had a swollen, bleeding & severely tramatized brain! I personally think that only time will tell, and all any of us can do for now is pray for his healing! (By the way, Tina is in Metro State Women's Prison in Atlanta! She is allowed letters & visitors, from what I have been told a few months ago. But I can not bare to look at her, much less talk to her or even write her! Besides, I don't think she is allowed to talk about the case. FYI.)

That really breaks my heart. No child should have to be put through it

Huh...she's actually not too far from me. I couldn't bear to go see her either. She wouldn't like what I'd have to say.

Thanks for all the updates. I will continue praying!
