    Update(s) from Shayna (Jaycee's sister)

    I posted this update from Shayna's personal myspace in the Donation thread, but since I don't want it to be overlooked I decided to post in it's own thread. She posted this yesterday (Friday) afternoon.

    Perhaps there is comfort to be taken from this.

    Ok enough about me - Jaycee! She is doing great and has a huge smile on her face everyday, I can really tell she enjoys her life and loves her family more than anything. She has so many new opportunities to experience and so do my neices! The other day I got challenged to compete in a play wrestling match with the 15 year old and man! It made me feel old..like an actual aunt! Neither one of us could get the other to the ground but I lost because I was so out of breath. Mhm I know embarassing! I can talk the talk but I cant walk the walk I guess haha =]

    That is just some insight to our lives I thought you all might like to hear =]

    Is that really her? If so, she should shut down her comments quickly. Even when "private," that stuff gets out. Also, I don't think we should be reading these comments, if it's her, since it seems so voyeuristic, invasive.

    Good grief, its MySpace! If it isn't private and all walled up, it is meant to be read and seen.

    Yes, it's really her, and she doesn't post anything that shouldn't "get out." She appears to be mature for her age, and she's using this account to share little messages like the one I posted. There is nothing voyeuristic or invasive about it, unless one chooses to treat it that way.

    Out of respect for her, I asked and received approval to share this message.

    Now, if I had simply posted her MySpace url, that to me would be invasive, even though it's public and public info. I find it more respectful to share the information here, then post her url for tons of people to bombard her and her account. (I'm not worried about Sleuthers, just lurkers.)

    Am I the only one who's a little bit weirded out by this? Fake "play" wrestling is one tactic used by molesters to get close to children. I wonder if Garrido "wrestled" with the girls. This is not to say anything against Jaycee or her daughters. They can't help it if this is all they know about behavior.

    I think this blog needs to be taken down, and fast.

    It's been quite the pattern for spoof MySpace pages to show up soon after some hot news item shows up. So be careful out there searching for her page, or the page of anyone tied to the case (or any news event). And the fact that posts exist before the news event doesn't mean anything - names and photos can be changed on an existing account.

    BBM. Yeah, I didn't quite know what to make of that, but I'm still not ready to dismiss it as not legit. Maybe the sister doesn't see it as we do. I know I cringe when I hear stuff like that but I'm biased for good reason.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    You're not the only one. OTH maybe the sisters rough housed for some activity in their enclosed space and lack of ability to burn off the energy otherwise. One can hope.

    I haven't been following WS and all the terrible crimes against children as long as most of you, so I'm looking at this with less jaded and obviously naive eyes because when I read Shayna's post, I saw fun, joy, and, yes, bonding, between aunt and niece.

    We don't know the conversation that led up to the challenge or anything else about it and I'm reluctant to fill in the blanks, or jump to the conclusion, that this is something the girls were subjected to by PG.

    For all we know the scenario could have been something like ... aunt and niece were talking along and aunt said something like "you might be taller than me but I'm stronger" and niece replying "oh no you're not," "yes I am," (laughter), "not," "let's wrestle and see" ... .

    I'm going to think hard on this and do some research to see what I can learn from you and other resources, because so far I don't see their play wrestling as anything more than what it is.

    Thank you for this advice.

    I wouldn't share the information if I hadn't checked it out to make sure it is Shayna's account and Shayna speaking through it.

    I am well aware of fakes, spoofs, and other internet garbage, but it is good advice for anyone who is naive in that aspect of today's technology. Fakes do happen. But not in this case.

    I was actually speaking more to those who, being curious, went out there to search for the page themselves. Some of the spoof pages carry links to viruses, etc., typically labelled, for example, 'Jaycee's daughters'.

    It does my heart good to read this from JC's sister.
    It is so wonderful to hear this

    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    We have no history of any sex abuse in my family. Thank You God.
    Many of us used to play this way as kids
    Not everything is bad.

    One part of me wants to rejoice at the seeming normalcy of the girls being able to play. But I agree, wrestling is probably not going to make any of the therapists or counselors working with these girls happy. I am the parent of eight children who are all survivors of childhood rape (non-familial) and wrestling was NEVER allowed in our home after the disclosures and trial. The rapist had used wrestling as a grooming technique on all our children. There's just too many dominant/submissive messages involved. My guess is that Shayna has blissfully lived a life without sexual abuse and therefore can't possibly know these things. Hopefully, the therapists will guide the younger ones to more productive and appropriate play.

    Your comment makes me feel GOOD about posting, Songline!! I've read your posts and know that you've expressed a lot of concern for the girls' well being. I was hoping that hearing an update from JC's sister would bring comfort to you and everyone who is worrying about them.

    It's not an easy path they are on, but it's wonderful to know they are now surrounded by good, kind, loving people who only have their best interests at heart .
