    Support for Michelle Knight

    Michelle Knight is one of the three missing women held captive for over a decade in Cleveland, Ohio. She was terribly brutalized and seems to not have as robust a support network as the other girls. Her family life before her abduction was tragic already. If any of you would like to brainstorm with me privately ways to show support (ie cards of encouragement) <modsnip>. I would like to use this page to discuss Michele Knight's case. I would also like to share a facebook support page I have created:

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Praye...42744432535439

    Thank you.

    What a beautiful idea. I've "liked" the page.

    I'm not sure I heard everything correctly this morning. I thought I'd heard her surviving family lived in Florida and were trying to reach her but as of yet none of her family has met her in Ohio. Did I hear that correctly?

    I keep seeing it both ways! But I think The media may have settled on Michelle. How do I change the spelling in the forum header? Anyone know? TIA!

    I know that her twin brother has visited her in the hospital... It was rumored that because of pre-abduction tension between her and her mother that she wasn't fond of seeing her at this time. I also believe I read that Michelle's mother had agreed to do an interview with some network and they paid for her expenses to Ohio. I'm going to go look for a link to back that up!

    Yes, from what I saw the other is in Florida. A brother visited her in the hospital. I will post some media links about her in a minute.

    click the edit button in the lower right corner
    click on "go advanced"

    you will then be able to edit the header title.

    Michelle helped to deliver Amanda Berry's baby. Anderson cooper has been trying to do some more stories on her.http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/0...by/?hpt=ac_bn2

    It sounds as if she has some disabilities and I hope her mother is able to take her to FL and start a new life. I can't see any other way for her if she doesn't. I felt so sad to know she was beaten so badly. The rescue tape was almost too much to hear. It made me cry.

    I really don't know if her mother will be or can be a good support for her. Apparently Michelle and her brother were abused by her mother's boyfriend as children. Michelle also lost custody of a child and the mother has said she feels responsible for that as the Mother's boyfriend was abusing the child. The mother then moved away to Florida. How can you move away when your child is missing? She also does not own any photographs of her child to share with media. Really sad stuff. I will try to dig up links for all this but it is all msm.

    I think it's nice to show support for Michelle. The other two girls have loving family members and were able to go home. It doesn't even appear Michelle has anywhere to go. Family members were looking for the two other girls-and Amanda knew that. Doesn't appear anyone looked for Michelle much, if any.
    Just my opinion
