First of all learn how to spell Steelers! And do you really feel that is appropiate to write about a place you have never been too! And are probably not even worthy of visiting! Pittsburgh was home to these Yaw children, until these childrens home was broken by a marriage that shouldnt have been!!!

I know the Yaw children including their older siblings. After their mother died of breast cancer when they were very young, their father started to move them around from house to house and from school to school in Pittsburgh. After he married Rita, I heard stories for years about how harsh he was with the older children. All of the Yaw children are well-behaved, good children. Please dig more into why he keeps moving around.
Joyce,
You were an embarassment as a guidance counselor at Fairview and it is so typical that you would imply that you had some understanding of this unfortunate situation. You couldn't figure something out if it was in pictures and first grade text. Just cut your losses and keep your lame opinions to yourself. Thank heaven you are retired! And, correct me if I'm wrong but would it EVER be appropriate for you to comment on someone you met through school? Not that being a counselor at school gave you a clue. It never did.

Well, someone had an axe to grind with Joyce! This is so rude, and tactless, but I like the way you think! I wonder where this little snipet came from?

How serious? A quick trashing, or a verbal tongue lashing followed by a brutal onslaught of fists, and punches and kicks? How serious?

I think it is unconscionable that some folks here are making light of this tragic situation. How do you think the children involved would feel to read these kinds of comments? Please have some concern for them. Have they not been through enough without being additionally subjected to such careless comments?

It's so difficult to take in. Such sadness for everyone involved. Does anyone know if the grown children are able to get the younger children out of foster care?
I am a foster parent in Las Cruces. I am aware of where the children where (while in Las Cruces in foster care). They are now with family members of of state (still under the jurisdiction of state custody - foster care). All articles mention the four girls aged 11 - 15. There are two more younger ones (who were removed and placed into state custody) and it is reported that the mother is currently pregnant with twins!

Well...it would seem that the doctor is heading for a new home. I saw a huge U-haul in their driveway last night. It appeared that they were moving under the cover of darkness. Sure wish the news stations would do a follow-up on this family. I sure hope the kids are safe!

Again, I cannot believe the frequency of their moves. I wonder how they have been treated since the story broke.

Judas is correct. The Yaw's lived next to us on Mission Nuevo. And, the reason we were totally shocked is that they were the cookie cutter picture of what a happy family looked like from outward appearances. They were very friendly and very neighborly. The kids were very close to our kids and we were very upset when they moved away even though it was just a few blocks away. We never obseverved any behavior from the parents that would send up a red flag. If I'd observed any abusive behavior, I'd have called CYFD back then. I just hope that the District Court of Las Cruces doesn't get intimidated by big money and a high powered attorney and prosecutes the good doctor as they would any person.
When you say that your kids were close to their kids are you including the girls or are you referring to Rita's two boys??? And what was their reason for moving a few blocks away???

Would the person who wrote this please call Mary at 1-800-832-6582. I am an attorney in New York, and am trying to help these kids. The fight is not over, and you may have helpful information. Thanks, Mary

In case anyone is wondering where this Dr. Yaw could possibly be hired with all those child abuse charges, he's now the Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at the VA hospital in Albuquerque. What exactly are they looking for on those background checks if guys like him get into leadership roles, along with the likes of Dr. Frank Zimba and Dr. Christian Schlicht? Our nation's heroes deserve better than this, as did those children!
