Just remember that blind trust (and the inability to believe someone who seems normal could be such a monster) is what a pedophile counts on. They are experts in deceit and manipulation. Teach your kids about bad touches and adults who make them do things which make them feel uncomfortable. Never let them hear you defend a pedophile or blame the victim. Enough said.

Maybe you should ask your stepdaughters if Gary has ever been ever been inappropriate with them instead of defending his sorry a**. They have been around him and leftalone with him many times.
It's apparent that you know who I am & that's fine. I don't hide behind a vague "username" that keeps me invisible to everyone. If people know me then the name I log in under is self explanatory.

Let me be perfectly clear about something,

#1. If there was even a hint of inappropriate activity towards them there would be NO safe place on this earth for him, or anyone else. Never have I accused Gary of any of this. I read the same paper that everyone has. The truth will come out regardless of anyone's opinion.

After sending my first response I realized that "I" could be the one that may need to admit that I don't know all of your story. Everything I'd heard was from the opposition. I spoke the words out of anger. My only worry is for those girls, Or any child in danger for that matter.
My apologies!
thankyou for your apologies. not many people take the time to know my story without assumimg the worst about me.i agree with you i just want all those girls safe and happy but as a mother i worry about my own and when you hear things like this it makes my heart race again thankyou

You can thank MITCH for the current state D.C.S. is in,these changes came under his 8 year term.You have to keep calling the local D.C.S. office and the toll free number every hour.All the call's to the 800 number go to Indianapolis,and they decide whether there is any merit to the case.Last year it was reported in the Star that 6 kid's were killed under D.C.S. watch,that is just what they turned in on their report,the reporter for the star is doing more investigating to see how much the number's were fudged.Get in touch with Michelle Corty and get her involved.My son called D.C.S. twice to get something done and our grandson was killed because of their inaction,DON'T WAIT CALL,CALL,CALL!!!!They changed their name from C.P.S. to D.C.S.,I guess because they are failing in the protective part.

If that's true notify the Judge that turned him loose and the mother and father should be in jail.

ok first of all my oldest child was only 4 at the time they were took from my home. How would she be able to take care of a baby.besides it was because my home wasnt clean enough and i had to turn the heat on. which if i was doing something wrong how could i have custody of twin boys now my home has past dcs standards. So i think you were told the wrong story.my husband has seen all the paperwork over this case and been to court with me he does know what was going on.Gary and mindy r infact bad parents in my eyes. Because anyone who would do the things he has admitted doing to her and any mother who would turn her head don't deserve those precious children.it don't take a judge to see that just takes one to make it happen.
Now that all of this has happened do you have any rights to get your daughter back??

I have a question my child was molested by her dad 4 years ago after fighting with local police no charges were pressed they had her questioned and said they believed it happened because she could tell them what he did how it felt and what he said. I have tried to figure out why a detailed report was not enough. the scheduled a lie dictators test and her dad did't go so no charges were pressed so there anything i can do. CPS said they believed it happened but could not make police press charges. He gave her a bath and washed her clothes so cops said without evidence they wouldn't press charges i am desperate any idea on what i can do?

Take your child to a Professional,Board Certified, Counselor as soon as possible so that your child can tell his or her story and get counseling. It is the duty of the Counselor to report the acts of molestation to the Prosecuting Attorney's Office in your County as soon as your child has told their story to the Counselor. It is the responsibility of the County Prosecuting Attorney's Office to file papers for an investigation into this matter. You and your child will be, at some point, interviewed by an Investigator from the police department. But, you have the right to request an Investigator from another District if you feel their will be a conflict of interest with the Investigators in your county. The State Police Investigators in my opinion will have your best interest at heart. If you wish to have this handled by the State Police Investigators make sure you tell the Prosecuting Attorney this. Lastly be patient with these officials and answer all their questions honestly, no matter how painful it may be. These matters can take some time and they will be needing all of your information and your child's information to make a solid case. If the case goes forward the Prosecuting Attorney will handle your case. Their will be no fees for this as it is handles by the State. Good Luck my friend!

Mindy threw Morgan away so she could keep that piece of scum Gary. I bet Mindy will really miss using Morgan's peanut allergy for attention for herself. One thing is for certain, a pedophile must have a victim. I wonder which child is next?
