Well it has been a very busy week. I ended up having a great time with the boys. I still have lots of pictures to post but will try to post those tomorrow.
My cousin who lives in Florida was in an abusive relationship. She ended things with him and tried to keep herself and her children safe. She and her boyfriend have a baby together. I'm not sure all of the details right now but he came to the house and tried to take their daughter. Crystal tried to prevent this and he ended up stabbing her 18 times. Her older boys were all home and even witnessed the ending of this tragic event. He grabbed the infant and took off. She is in the hospital and is expected to have a full recovery. The boyfriend was later found and has been charged with attempted murder, unlawful kidnapping, and endangerment of a child. My aunt currently has all 4 children but as I cannot even imagine, the older boys are shaken and traumatized.
I will try to update more on her and other events in our lives tomorrow. I just thought that this blog would be a great place to have lots of prayers sent to my cousin and her family. This will be the beginning of a huge battle of the boys healing over what they witnessed and Crystal healing physically and emotionally.
