Day 255: 1 Way You Can Help Stop Child Abuse

@365give Please Help Stop Child Abuse…. We Need Your Support from @helpspreadthis

I couldn’t ignore this Twitter message this morning and had to help. Will you? will you help stop child abuse?

Day 255: Give 255

All I had to do was follow this link this morning by Stop Child Abuse.  Read the story below taken directly from the petition and follow the link to This site that can be used to start your own petition to help change the world.


“The girl’s partially dissolved corpse was discovered in a black bag in his truck at the side of a busy Florida motorway, alongside the 10-year-old boy who was so heavily soaked in acid that emergency workers fell sick from the toxic fumes while helping to save him.

Barahona has since confessed to police that he put his dead daughter in the truck and drove off with the intention of killing himself.

The Department of Children and Families said that the twins were placed in foster care with the Barahonas in 2005.
In that year they were investigated three times yet the couple were allowed to legally adopt the children in 2009.
The DCF received a report eight months ago that something was not right at the children’s home in Miami.
The person who called the abuse hotline noted that Nubia had been acting ‘inappropriately’ and had been suffering from ‘uncontrollable’ hunger.
She was also said to have become very thin, was losing her hair, was ‘nervous and jittery’ and had started stealing food.”

I’m an adoptive parent and this makes me sick. Kids all over the world need our support, comfort and love especially when they have already been displaced from their birth families. We have to do everything in our power to change the way we protect our children. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world. We need to give in any way we can and this is your chance to help. They have a goal of 100,000 signatures. It’s the minimum you need just to turn a head in the government.

I was number 545 what number will you be?
