Child Abuse

XRay OF A 4 Month Old Child SHOWING HORRIFIC INJURIES

This is an extract for a story in the Courier Mail by Margaret Wenham 26/6/12

AN X-ray of a four-month-old boy that shows two broken legs and two broken ribs may shock you, but for those who confront child abuse in Queensland every day, it’s nothing new.

I honestly don’t understand how people can do this to their children whatever their age. Children are so defenseless. To have your father or your mother or some other relative you trust hurt you like this is inconceivable. The other day a man jumped off the bridge with his baby. The poor baby died but the man survived. What would drive people to do this? There have been so many cases we have seen on the news where people take out their frustrations, anger, and bitterness on their vulnerable children.  Maybe drugs and alcohol are involved, or the perpetrator is seeking revenge on their partner, but whatever the cause these poor children should  be protected.  There was a case a while ago where the father drowned his 3 children in a car. Drove it into a lake and left them there to die. I cannot imagine what was going through those poor, terrified children’s minds when the father they loved and trusted did that.  It haunts me to this day and I suspect always will. There has to be something that society can do to protect these poor little children.

    It’s can be such a scary world especially when we think of the harm some children go through…especially at the hands of the ones who should protect them. I pray for healing for every hurting heart, and that people learn to seek help when necessary…parenting is hard but there is hope and help, and children should be protected at all costs
