Hi there everyone. I ask all of your forgiveness in advance for venting and getting this off my chest. This has been such an awful day. My daughter and grandaughter who is now 4 1/2 months old were walking along main street today...when they ran into a young man that in the past has just made my poor daughters life a living hell. She refused to go out with him and warned her friends to stay away from him because he was /is such a troubled you man, who's had so many restraining orders, and jail time for harrassement and assaults. He got wind of this and a few years ago started to threaten to kill her etc... we contatcted the police immediately and within a few months he was behind bars. We thought all this was behind us. As I've told you before both my daughters are incest survivors so I gave up family , home , everything to escape that abuse and to keep them safe. This new and recent threat to her safety is really bringing everything back for her...for all of us.
Well today, as she tried to walk past him... he came right up to her face , called her a terrible name....and then proceeded to SPIT IN THE BABY"S FACE, who was asleep in her stroller.. She began to scream and although there were witnesses,, my daughter was so frantic and upset, trying to calm the baby, she didn't think to ask for their names. I watched the baby a little later on, and her mother and father in law went with her to the police station (dad who was fit to be tied, couldn't get away from work), to lay charges. He will be arrested and charged for assault. They brought the baby to the doctors immediately, who by the way was furious...so were the police.....but he prescribed eye drops to try and ward off any infection. My daughter is so worried that the baby will get HIV or something dreadful.
She is only 18... her partner 23...they are both so upset. I cried all day at the thought that there is no safe place in this world.. That monsters like this get a little slap on the hand and are released back into society to cause more fear and hurt. I'm so sorry to go on about this....but I just can't stop crying. My girls have been through so much....I've done everything to keep them safe.It has taken them years and years of counseling to just begin to feel safe again....now my grandaughter....my beautiful , sweet , happy little baby girl is assaulted in such a way. I usually have the attitude that life is 10%what happens to you and 90% attitude....but I feel so broken, and worried.My CD is flaring... I have to be strong for my girls. Please keep me and my beautiful daughters and grandaughter in your prayers if your incllined to do so. Thank you for your support. And again forgive me for the long vent.
