Ive been lurking far too long-. Sherin is one of those little girls who touched my heart from the beginning. I live in DFW, and I havent logged on, hoping my sadness would decrease, but it didnt. So here I am, to mourn with all of you.
This poor sweet baby girl never never had a chance in life. None. Its a wonder she was even smiling in photos. I desperately wish that I couldve given her even one day of the happy childhood that I had with my late mother.
I dont know if this has been shared yet, but it tore me to pieces. Back in India, the orphanage found little Sherin dumped in bushes. Just as if she were nothing. And now she was dumped in a culvert. Absolutely heart-wrenching. I sure hope that she is given a proper funeral and burial, and that some of the lovely gifts and letters placed at the tree will be buried with her. This little girl deserves a beautiful final resting place, not bushes or a culvert.
But knowing WM, hed rather pay bond again than use the money for Sherin. I swear, Im the same age as WM, and from the first time I saw his pic, I got a creepy feeling. Very similar to some online dating profiles I see, lol.
Itll be interesting to see what develops in the next few days. With the body found and custody hearing tomorrow, I hope that WM doesnt punish someone else for not drinking their milk before hes back in custody.
Forgive double post:
Your post brings up another aspect. International adoption and the the family adjustment that comes with it. It is not always the fairytale people think of. It takes great dedication and PATIENCE to help a child with such a background to trust and bond. There are many sad endings whether it be adoption disruption, parents overwhelmed and snapping, or worse. It has only been a little more then a year since she was adopted. Not long in the realm of all that is needed for family and child to adjust. I remind myself that this sweet child may not react to situations the same as those not having her background. Could she have run away? Wasn't she found in bushes in India? She seemed to be a survivor. There is a site that lists adopted children who are murdered by a parent/s. The numbers are many.and it is heartbreaking. I appreciate your post. It made me think.
