NH couple wanted for child abuse captured at Universal Studios Florida (VIDEO) | Story of Survival-Child Abuse | Scoop.it

ORLANDO, Fla. — A man and woman wanted for child abuse in New Hampshire were put behind bars in Orlando on Wednesday. 

 

Investigators said the two were found at Universal Orlando, after police searched for several weeks.

 

Roland Dow and Jessica Linscott face felony charges, including child abuse and fleeing charges. They will not make an appearance at the Orange County Courthouse, but will soon be extradited to New Hampshire.

 

Investigators say the couple severely beat a 3-year-old boy -- Linscott's son.

 

The child’s grandmother said the boy’s hands were burned and that he needed brain surgery because of injuries to his head.

 

The couple apparently dropped the boy off at a hospital and fled, according to investigators...

Child abuse must stop! They deserve NO mercy for crimes of the helpless.  Every assault should be punished with the same assault to them.  Burn for burn-An eye for an eye. NO xgild should ever be beaten or abused.

Roskam: Human trafficking a growing threat in suburbs | Story of Survival-Child Abuse | Scoop.it
Human trafficking -- both in terms of labor and sex -- is becoming more prevalent in the suburbs, and legislators and law enforcement officials say they're taking steps to fight it. Elected officials joined suburban police to learn about what more can be done to address the problem. "It (human trafficking) is happening in the suburbs," Rep. Peter Roskam said. "It is happening in ways that should be apparent to us, but we don't even see it."

Awakenings: Word of the Day: Bacon | Story of Survival-Child Abuse | Scoop.it

I love trivia! Do you? And what better subject than BACON! Perhaps all you know about bacon is that it is a meat product prepared from a pig and it goes with just about anything! We will get to some bacony combinations (usual and unusual) later but right now let's take a walk down history lane and when, where, how this succulent meat found its way to the table, especially America's breakfast table.


Via Sharla Shults
Rosemary J. Adkins's insight:

More bacon ideas than anyone could ever imagine! Thinking about it at breakfast is impossible.  Then of course the many uses for it during any meal makes bacon a huge part of recipes.

Did you remember bacon also refers to other subjects -like money?

Goodreads Giveaway-Get a copy of Reflections of Mamie-A Story of Survival | Story of Survival-Child Abuse | Scoop.it
Rosemary J. Adkins's insight:

The story begins in the early 1950's suburbs of Houston, Texas.  Mamie is a  young child of four who was unwanted, afraid, abused and with nowhere to turn, learned that she had to stand alone.  Her only friends were her older brother, an abused child himself, and her nanny, who begged their mother to stop beating them.  The father, though he loved his children, remained passive to the end.  A victim himself, the only protection he offered was a warning to stay out of their mother's reach.  

 

Mamie, the main character in this story draws you close to her dreams and hopes as she suffers the neglect and abuse from her mother.  A young girl who spends her entire life searching . . . no, pleading for her mother’s love and approval, but instead receives only physical, mental, and emotional abuse in return. This unsettling tale is more a story of hope as Mamie’s fighting spirit leaves the reader in awe at the young girl who comes to life on the tear-stained pages."

 

Her only thought: Never Give Up!

Her only Dream: A Family to call her own.

Happy New Year's Day, everyone! It has been nearly a year since the release of my book, Awakenings from Then 'til Now.  You might ask "What is Awakenings about?" I would answer "What does it mean to be an American?"
