I just wanted to let everyone know that I am going to get to the e-mails in my inbox, but not right away. I had my surgery on April 22 and the surgeon caused me a huge problem. As I have stated in the past, I have Crohn's Disease and after 17  years of never being in remission, I made the hard decision to have a colostomy bag placed on my body. I was told that it would be about five days in the hospital and I would be going home to finish recovering. Unfortunately, the surgeon severed my ureter in the process and I was in the hospital 31 days and have been back in since then for further problems with what is called a nephrostomy tube connected to my kidney. Three and a half months later, my life is crazy and I really can't sit at the computer for all that long. I will be having what I HOPE is the last surgery, to remove the tube out of my kidney and repair the ureter and then I can get back to life. I have over 600 e-mails to go through and right now I am busy deleting the spam so that soon I can concentrate on the important things, like the children. I hope you will all be patient with me while I heal up and get back to my old self. I WILL get to the children, I promise.

God bless,
Sharon

A note from the site creator, hey, that's me <G>:


Today is June 24, 2014. I have just finished editing every page in the "Child Abuse Prevention" section of my site. It has been a long, slow process, but it needed to be done. I have done spell checks, proof reading, checking links, updating pages, searching for pictures and I have added a table at the bottom of each page that shows each section in the "Child Abuse Prevention" section of my site. I have checked HUNDREDS of links and fixed any that I have found in need of fixing. I feel like I have done the best I can do for now.

I have also taken the suggestion of a woman who asked for it, and I have added a page that will give the last three months of the newest Angels who have been added to my site as well as a section that will show which pages are not complete. A complete page is a page where I have spelled checked, proof read and added anything that needed adding, I have updated the page and the case has been resolved, meaning someone has gone to prison or maybe not, for the death of the child, there is nothing more to be added to that page unless something drastic and news worthy happens.

I am have corrected a lot of mistakes that I have see along the way, however, that doesn't mean that the pages will be 199% perfect. Please do NOT hesitate to let me know if you see ANYTHING that needs fixing. If you do, just send me the page number and what needs to be corrected. I appreciate when people let me know about mistakes, I just need to know where they are if they are to be fixed. Just send me
an e-mail and I will fix it as soon as I can.


I have noticed that over the years, my comments have become a bit more sarcastic and angry. I won't make an
apology for that. I just don't understand how people can be so cruel, how people can hear a child crying and
not want to do something about it, how people can KNOW something is not right and NOT want to help that
child. I can't tell you how many stories I have read where someone said "We knew something was not right in
that house". REALLY? It's hard for me to understand the need for some people to "mind their own business".
So many of the children who die, could have been help either by a neighbor, a family member or CPS.

Within these pages you will read stories about children who have been abused. Many  of these children were abused to death. I have done my very best to do research on  each child and to be accurate in what I have written. If you have information that is different from what I have printed, please let me know. If you have anything to add, please let me know. If you have any updates, please let me know. 

I do not feature stories of child abuse survivors without their permission and then I have them put their story into their own words and tell it exactly as they have written it. My reason for this is that I do not ever want someone to come to my site and see their story and be upset about it. When I say anyone, I mean victims of child abuse, I do not mean the people who are child abusers. If you see your story here and you are a child abuser, I guess you should consider yourself lucky because it means you have abused a child, maybe to death and you're still free to walk around. Hopefully, not for long though. I am having to put limits on what stories I
put on my site due to my hands and having Arthritis. While I know it is very tragic when a child is kidnapped
and killed, that is not the same as a child being abused and killed. I know to some that may seem harsh, I just need to focus on the cause, which is child abuse prevention.

I rarely use pictures of children in their caskets, though I do put pictures of the casket as it is being carried. I DO put pictures of children in hospital beds because I get tired of seeing people say that they don't think it was "all that bad" or "No one would do that to a child", it is that bad and they do, so the pictures are proof and hopefully if someone sees that picture, they'll take notice next time and make a call. I do not put pictures of the people who murdered these children or who helped in the process of allowing the murder to take place, unless that person has fled and is still missing. 

I would like to caution those people who have come here and are survivors of abuse.  If you are easily triggered, please consider that the stories on my site tell the entire story of the abused children, at times the details are included and be very graphic in nature. If you don't feel that you could handle reading them, please do not go any further into this section of my site. You can return to the site index by clicking the button below. Is it NOT my intention to hurt anyone by telling the stories of abused children on my site. I only want to honor their memory.



You're a special little spirit, the all great master said. 
As he gently caressed the hair of the little spirit's head. 

You need to go to earth to spend some time you know. 
A place I send most spirits to be tested, to learn, to grow.

The little spirit in sadness, slowly bowed her little head 
and from her eye a tear did steal and down his cheek it shed.

Don't you fret now little one, I wont let you stay too long.
I'll bring you back to help me here, you'll hardly know you've gone. 

I need to test the people who will have you in their care 
to see if they appreciate how precious you are there. 

Your my choicest little spirit. your the apple of my eye, 
and he wiped the tear and gently kissed his little spirit good-bye.

When he saw how you were treated, his special little one, 
he sent down all his angels just to bring you safely home.

I want to thank a certain "Bug" for sending this to me.

is in need of a lawyer, please contact:

Mary Ellen Wilson
March 1864 - October 30, 1956
Find A Grave Memorial

Mary Ellen Wilson before her ordeal ended and after.

In September of 1874 a New York city charity worker, Mrs. Etta Angell Wheeler, heard about the abuse of a ten year old little girl name Mary Ellen Wilson. Mary Ellen's father had died at war and her mother had placed her in temporary care of a baby sitter.

Mary Ellen's mother did not return for several months and was not providing any support for her. Then one day she showed up drunk and newly married wanting to take Mary Ellen home. The baby sitter could see that this new marriage had changed Mary Ellen's mother and didn't want to put Mary Ellen back with her so she told her that Mary Ellen had died. Later, she could no longer care for Mary Ellen so she took her to an orphanage claiming her mother had abandoned her.

Mary Ellen was later adopted by a man who had lost all of his own children to illness. He told his wife that Mary Ellen was his illegitimate daughter. His wife agreed to accept Mary Ellen but hated her every day she knew her.

Mary Ellen was treated as though she were nothing more than a slave. She was allowed to wear only one set of clothes and was rarely bathed.  Mary Ellen slept on a piece of rug under a window in the living room and was locked in a closet when her mother left the house. 

Mary Ellen had no toys to play with and was never allowed outside to play with the other children. When a policeman who lived in her building found her locked in a closet in her home, he gave her some candy, which she had never tasted before. Though he treated her well, the police man never did anything to save Mary Ellen from her abuser.

Sadly, many people knew of the abuse Mary Ellen was suffering, including the police officer who lived in the same building as she did, however, her suffering went on for years, until Etta Wheeler and Henry Bergh entered her life.

Etta Wheeler arrived at the house in September 1874 to find Mary Ellen covered in bruises and scars.  Mary Ellen  had a gash in her forehead made by the care taker, with a pair of scissors. She made several return visits to check on Mary Ellen. At this time there were no laws in affect to protect children so Etta Wheeler persuaded Henry Bergh, from the American Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Animals, to go court on Mary Ellen's behalf.

Mary Ellen's "foster" mother, Mary Connolly, was convicted of assault and  battery and sentenced to a year of hard labor in the city penitentiary. Mary Ellen had this say in court:

"Mamma has been in the habit of whipping and beating me  almost every day. She
used to whip me with a twisted whip, a
raw hide. I have no recollection of ever
having been kissed and
  have never been kissed by Mamma."

After the trial, Mary Ellen eventually ended up living with Etta Wheeler's sister. In 1888, at the age of 24, she was married to Lewis Schutt. She had two daughters who both grew up to be teachers.  Mary Ellen died October 30, 1956 at the age of 92.


In April 1875, the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children was created, only eight months after Mary Ellen's ordeal. Other states then began to form agencies for the protection of children.

Read the facts as told by Mary Ellen's decedents as well as Eric Shelman and  Stephan Lazortz, M.D:

I was given this book as a gift from my son and his then girlfriend. Let me tell you that I read the entire book over a two day period. The book held my attention so that it was hard to put it down. It shows pictures of Mary Ellen, Etta Angell Wheeler, Henry Bergh, Lewis Schutt the man Mary Ellen married, Mary Ellen's children and several others. The book details Mary Ellen's life from birth to death and I found it to be one of the best books I have ever read.

A Child's Silent Prayer

Some where in the distance 
a desperate child can be heard
though never does he chance
to speak aloud a single word

His cries fill the night 
from the pain they choose to send
silently he prays alone 
for this nightmare to come to an end

Curled up against the bed post 
he  hides his face in fear
as slowly down the hall 
angry footsteps are drawing near

He thinks:
"What could I have done 
to bring on all this pain
I didn't forget to clean my room, 
or walk the dog again

I only want to show my love
each day to mom and dad
Let them know how much I try
show them I don't like to be sad

I wish that they could see 
that all I need is love
So I am sending up a prayer
to God in heaven above

Please help them both to see
as you bless my mom and dad
That even though I am very small
I try very hard not to be bad

I might get stains on my new shirt
sometimes I might spill my cup 
But stains do come out in wash
and a little spill will mop right up

Even when they broke my arm
I kept up with every chore
I cleaned my plate at every meal
did all they asked and even more

I keep my bedroom nice and neat
on the floor this is not one toy
and everything is in it's place
I try to be a good little boy

Can't you let my parents see
that hitting me is just not right
that I love them very much
this I ask of you tonight

Tell them I need hugs and love
and that I like to give them to
Oh, please help, dear God above
that is what I need from you

Amen

National Child Abuse Prevention Month 2004 
By the President of the United States
A Proclamation 

America has a fundamental duty to protect the safety and well being of its children. During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we renew our commitment to preventing child abuse and neglect, and we dedicate ourselves to creating a safe environment in which our children can grow and thrive. 

We have made important progress in protecting America's children, but too many still suffer from abuse and neglect. Recent reports indicate that nearly 900,000 children were found to be victims of abuse or neglect in 2002. Of these children, an estimated 1,400 died, 75 percent of whom were 4 years old or younger. 

These young girls and boys depend on adults to recognize the risk factors and warning signs of abuse and to take action to end it. This critical responsibility is shared by parents, teachers, coaches, religious leaders, government officials, and concerned citizens in every community. 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 2004 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I encourage all citizens to take an active role in creating a caring community and help protect America's children from abuse and neglect. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-eighth. 

GEORGE W. BUSH



My name is Sarah

I am but three My eyes are swollen
I cannot see

I must be stupid I must be bad
What else could have made My daddy so mad

I wish I were better I wish I weren't ugly
Then maybe my mommy Would still want to hug me

I cant do a wrong I cant speak at all
Or else im locked up All day long

When im awake im all alone The house is dark
My folks aren't home When my mommy does come home

I'll try and be nice So maybe ill just get
One whipping tonight

I just heard a car My daddy is back
From Charlie's bar

I hear him curse My name is called
I press myself Against the wall

I try to hide From his evil eyes
Im so afraid now I starting to cry

He finds me weeping Calls me ugly words
He says its my fault He suffers at work

He slaps and hits me And yells at me more
I finally get free And run to the door

He's already locked it And i start to bawl
He takes me and throws me Against the hard wall

I fall to the floor With my bones nearly broken
And my daddy continues With more bad words spoken

"Im sorry!", I scream But its now much too late
His face has been twisted Into a unimaginable shape

The hurt and the pain Again and again
O please God, have mercy O please let it end

And he finally stops And heads for the door
While I lay there motionless Brawled on the floor

My name is Sarah I am but three
Tonight my daddy Murdered me
