Sharah and Shane Schigur are "Therapy" Foster Home parents, through a private foster agency. In other words they get paid BIG Bucks to provide this type of "Therapy" to kids. When Social Services, the Private Foster Therapy Company, and Sarah Schigur were made aware of a similar incident that happened a couple years ago (to the same child), they managed to brush it under the carpet and left the girls there. Of course the Social Service worker for the private company, who oversaw the girls case, was also best friends with Sarah convenient!! If the girls reported anything to their case worker, she would in turn tell Sarah, and the girls would get into trouble. This is only the very tip of the iceberg....

And who, exactly are you? You seem to know so much about the family? Are involved with them on a daily basis to know this info?
Of course, if this really did happen, it is appalling. But if not, maybe we should give the family the benefit of the doubt until it gets sorted out.

Sticking with the facts....Sarah and Shane are "Therapy" Foster Parents for Community Care Resource, Inc.. They provide "Therapy" foster care for children with emotional disorders including: ADD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, SEXUAL, Emotional, & Physical Abuse, etc. What has been allowed to happen to these girls, is very appalling, I agree. I trust the judge, with ALL of the information, will be able to sort through and sentence Shane to exactly what he deserves! I only hope that another child, especially one that is in need of special "therapy" help is NOT forced to endure this type of "Therapy" with Sarah and Shane. I also hope that this case is formally reviewed, as there are many details and problems that were brushed under the carpet from the beginning. Joy, Sarah's BEST friend should never have been allowed to be case worker of these girls. Much to much was overlooked, and allowed!!! I hope Community Care Resources, Inc. takes a closer look into their policy, and their staff. Hopefully, they learn from their mistakes! They should be very concerned as to what went on here. Who are we? People concerned about the children present and future....concerned this doesn't happen again!! Knowing the system, our guess is it will! These people should not be allowed to care for any type of child, let alone those with special needs. There is a history here that was overlooked! Yet these children remained!! Now they remain in the same school as Shanes children's school, how can that be? Who is looking out for these children? Much to much time is spent letting these type of people, who are out to make Good Money off of these children, find a way to keep doing it at the childrens expense!! Who is looking out for these children? An over run system, or a private system watching out for their own butts? Who are you, family of Shane and Sarah? My point exactly!!!

No one has yet mentioned a very common occurance with female foster children, especially those who are victims of a biological union that in no way might qualifiy them as "parents".
Many of these forgotten or unwanted care a big burden. Who can blame them if some are easily tempted to take advantage of anything that they think may serve them to an advantage. In many cases, they do not have the capacity to evaluate how they have been favored by being in a foster home. This can lead to taking advantages to achieve some goal that is tantamount to "biting the hand that feeds you".
This does not mean abuse charges should be taken lightly. The danger lies in not taking the time to thoroughly evaluate the statements coming through the prism of the accuser.
I have witnessed many incidents very similar to this during my many years as a public school employee. A very small percentage have unequivocally been ligitimate. Mostly the results of these accusations resulted in many adults being stigmatized and held in derision, even after they have been absolved.
Furthermore, I need to add that it is quite obvious that the JASON, writing the prejudicial statements, is attempting to descredit this family for his own reasons or gains.

i think what happened to those girls in the schigur family was messed up in so many ways.... the 14 yr old girl than had reported early before reported shane schigur touched her and no one listened to her and told her it was a dream. She knows what the truth is and what happened, they both had to go through so much and now the truth came put and it is about time people found oout what a gross disturbubbing he really is.

look up the mom and dad and does it matter that the mom had told both girls that a man named shane raped her who by the way is a cop does it matter that both leann miller and troy miller are in jail for the rest of there lives for the worst case of child abuse in the state at the time do I need to go on sometomes when people try to help other people the take right up the , and they both also have a history off telling theese kinda storys but being minor's that is all sealed

First off I want to say that it was not a dream and that what happened was not the first occurrence that it happened you all may believe what you want but I know the family and I know that I was not dreaming. The Schigur family was a respite home for me when the first occurrence happened the second time it happened is when they moved me in with them after knowing what happened the first time. My Parents are not in prison for life my father got 38 years and my mother got 18 years. And it was a coincidence that the guy my mother had an affair with was named shane. listen I did not pick my foster home because if I did I obviously wouldn't of went to the guy who I Was terrified of from a previous experience with shane. My Foster dad was mentally ill. He is a sick man. If the state would have had listened and payed attention to what was going on and listen to a young child that was in a therapy home maybe this Wouldnt have had to happen a second time. But then again they didn't care they were getting money for it and that was the main Intrest. Not the childs "my" best intrest. So before any of you act like you know what happened learn the facts (coming from the victim). JASON is 100% correct on everything. One other thing MY PARENTS DID NOT SEXUALLY ABUSE ANY ONE OF THEIR CHILDREN! I would like to see where you found that because that is incorrect information you can look up any article stating Troy and Lee Miller i promise you it will not say anything about sexual abuse. Again learn your facts people before you start Stating incorect statements. like I said you know it doesn't matter any of the past that happen because you know what I'm doing better than I've ever done in my life, I'm happily married and have a beautiful family and all you can say what you want and think what you want because you know what now I'm not the victim!

I only pray and hope that this will never happen to another child. And if it does i pray state will jump on it and the system will do something about it right away instead of letting it happen another time.

I am confused. So was the abuse from "Shane" your mothers boyfriend or Shane who was at the respite home? I didn't see where Shane Schigur was ever convicted of anything, just curious. It is wonderful to know you are thriving and happy now. You should never have suffered as much as you have.

I'm sure the schigur family had no idea what they were getting into when they were asked to take these girl's into their home. The 14 year old girl is the one that requested to be placed with them AFTER she was put there for respite care. That's right, she requested it. She came from a home that was sited as being the worst case of child abuse, at that time, in Wisconsin's history!!! They were not made aware that the kids willingly took part in the physical torture of the oldest sister, that the father had the 14 year old sister sleep with him on nights that the mom worked. they fed their older sister dead rodents and kacy held her down while the dad hammered her teeth out, that they had mail mailed to them from their uncle Jason to a different address so the schigur's didn't know. the letters were found and in them their uncle them told the girls what they needed to do to get out of the schigur's house so they could be placed with him, he needed the money. he also had his last name legally changed so no one would know he was related to the miller family.
I knew the schigur's for a long time, and they were and are good people. they had well over 30 children in their home over the many years they were fosterparents. these were the worst kids they had ever had. the 12 year old smeared feces, picked her body to the point of bleeding an leaving permanent scars, and the older one had issues with boys, she LIKED them all. As a former neighbor, I saw it first hand. if the girl that made the false allegations has actually received continued therapy and has gotten better, great for her. If she is happily married and has children, I pray she is a good mom to them, but hope that social services keeps an eye on her to make sure that her children remain safe. You can't come from a home like they did growing up and be normal.
That guy Jason that has posted on here is the uncle, the one that legally changed his name; and when the girls were first taken, refused to take them. he only wanted the 2nd oldest girl because she was smart and pretty. the two younger had multiple learning disabilities and major behavioral issues. People shouldn't judge unless they know the entire story. These girls were extremely disturbed kids.
