I don't think she lied to her mom. Cindy shared everything with her mom and her mom shared much of that with her sister which is how we know so much about their personal feelings, such as Cindy considering ending her life. Good thing Casey didn't know that, ey?I agree with you. People need to remember that we all lie. It's human nature to lie. Nobody is exempt. When someone asks us "how are your children doing?"....do we automatically start off by divulging how wonderful one child is doing in school and how another one was caught drinking with friends the week before and how the 3d one you found birth control pills in her bedroom? No. We answer, "pretty good. They're doing pretty good. Thank you. And yours?" For the most part if we are having a totally crappy day and the bank teller asks "how are you?"....we automatically say "Fine, and you?". We don't go into the "real truth".
It's no biggie that Cindy lied about Ft. Myers to her family....we all do that when we may want to get out of having to visit someone at one point or another. There is nothing "psychologically wrong" with that. And there is nothing wrong with her lying to her family (mom) about situations at home in which she didn't want to worry her elderly mother further. And it is also possible that Cindy and George knew Casey was pregnant and lied to those at the wedding because we don't know if George and Cindy may have been trying to convince Casey to give the baby up for adoption and this way nobody need "know". We just do not know.
Lying is wrong and people should not practice that behavior. I personally think that not telling LE every detail of personal family issues is lying. I'm sure also that it was nerve racking for an old woman to talk to LE, and you don't always think clearly under stress.
I just read from another poster that thinks that Cindy didn't lie. I don't agree with that poster because their attorney requested immunity for conflicting statements to LE which is an admission of guilt. LE, under the circumstances is not investigating them at this time, nor do I think they will in the future, unless CA starts acting out again. Caylee has been found. Now they simply need to let the evidence and Caylee speak, and let a jury decide, and support their daughter if they choose to in a passive manner. This is jmo.
Letting go is the hardest of things to do, but it seems to be the answer to most questions concerning adult children.
I do have a son in prison, and I believed he was innocent of the crime until the day he confessed to me that he was guilty. What followed on my part was anger and shame. I didn't want to be the mother of someone who could commit a crime as he had done. For his part, when he heard my anger and shame, he became defensive, though he had none. Finally forgiveness came. He is paying the price, and has gone through a process of remorse, and has turned his thought process toward righteousness, and his heart has been cleansed. He has steadily increased in health physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Though he will always carry the scar of his crime, as will his victim, he will not reoffend after he is released provided his continues on his current path.
My prayer for Casey is that one day she too will come to her senses and begin the healing process. My prayer for her parents is that they too can come to terms with what their daughter has done, and one day forgive her, because one day she may need to hear it. This will all take time which Casey has plenty of. Good can come from even this, but I'm sure most are not ready to hear that. All those who believe that heaven is a real place understand that Caylee is safe now. No one will hurt her again, and she is in a wonderful place. I'm sure she has already forgiven the one who stole her life from her. But many of us are not ready to hear her voice just yet.
God is enthroned on justice. Jesus says mercy triumphs over judgment.
We all want justice for Caylee.
I believe we all also want remorse from Casey.
I know I do.
