Why Adopt If You Are Going To Mistreat The Child?I was going through my usual routine this morning, reading the headlines online on popular news sites, when I came across the heart breaking true story of Hana WIlliams, the 13 year old girl who was adopted from Ethiopia.
Her parents, Larry and Carri Williams starved her for days at a time and made her sleep in a closet, and also isolated her from the rest of their biological children.
Carri Williams called 911 on May 12th and reported that she was not breathing. She had died of hypothermia. The autopsy found malnutrition and a stomach infection were contributing factors.
In July, seven remaining children were removed from the Williams home and placed in foster care.
What gets in to the human mind to mistreat another person, a child. Why even adopt if you are not going to love and treat the person with care. They have been through enough struggle in their young lives needing to be adopted in the first place.
What makes human beings hate, and want to abuse, starve and kill someone else?
This among many other horror stories about children truly breaks my heart.
