    Default The Girl in the Window

    This is sure to bring a tear to your eye (it did to mine). A bit of a long read if you have the time, but an unbelieveable story.

    The Girl in the Window





    "Is she okay?

    Danielle is better than anyone dared hope. She has learned to look at people and let herself be held. She can chew ham. She can swim. She’s tall and blond and has a little belly. She knows her name is Dani.

    In her new room, she has a window she can look out of. When she wants to see outside, all she has to do is raise her arms and her dad is right behind her, waiting to pick her up."


    All I can say is, Amen!

    That is horrible. I am glad she is now with someone who truly cares for her.

    A truly horrible and yet very touching story. You have to have a licence to drive a car, but they'll let any ass have a child.

    How anyone could do that to a child is just beyond me. I am happy that she's with such a loving family and doing better. I hope God holds her in the palms of his hands....

    What is even more horrible, the mother basically walked away with no punishment at all. To get custody, they plea bargained and she got out of the 20 yrs reduced to 2 yrs probation and community service then "tripped" on a box at Walmart and the community service was suspended. Un-fucking-believable!!!
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    That is one of the most horrible things I have ever read. My heart just goes out to her and her adopted family. Thank God for them or that girl might never have had any kind of life at all.

    I agree, especially her brother. What a great kid and all he's sacrificed for her. I feel bad for him but what a great example of an unselfish child who hopefully will turn out to be a fantastic adult. Big kudos to him.

    TST<----------hope our kids turn out that well-------

    Why couldn't the "mother" "trip" and fall down a long flight of stairs like Father Karras in "The Exorcist".

    Hope they are able to help this girl find ways to catch up. I'd like to think that living normal for awhile her instincts will one day start to kick in, but really, who knows what is instinctive or not?

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe in time her instincts will just kick in, I would like to hope so.

    This story made my heart sink. That family who took in that poor girl have to be some of the most unbelievable parents I've ever witnessed, even though I just read about them.

    That story is phenomenal. How some stupid bitch can put a poor little girl through so much pain and horror, and for her to be on a road to recovery. Even if her instincts never totally come back, she's better than she was before.

    Thanks for this. Totally uplifting, definitely tear-jerking at times

    What a moving story. The brother is extremely special as well. I have to think good parenting is the reason. If instinct doesn't kick in, perhaps Dani will learn by example, at least to talk and laugh.

    I can honestly say that nothing that I have read here has brought me to tears. Until now. This is heart breaking in the worst way imaginable. Truly disgusting on all levels. I cannot believe tis happened to a poor little girl.
