For today, some solved mysteries leave more mystery:
I read a story on the news. In Illinois a girl 9 (Kala) was not returned to her father after a visit with her mother. Now that the girl is 15, she is found in Ashville, NC and the mother is arrested.
That leaves me with many questions. None of them answered in the news story. MOST kids 9 years old can use a cell phone. If they do not have one they are easily borrowed from friends to make a call. Why did she not call her father to let him know where she was?
IF she was fearful of her mother just a hint to a teacher or police officer would have solved the problem during those 6 years.
I hope there are good answers to these questions, and I hope they are made public. When I have questions like this I want an answer. She looks happy both before and after. But you know pictures ! SMILE!!!
I wonder the reason the father had custody….
I wonder if she was mistreated……….
I wonder if she is mentally challenged?
Anyway, I know there are injustices in our country. I do trust our system but I do know that even the best intentioned law enforcement and system can make a mistake and cause misery.
I do hope the child is allowed to live with the parent SHE prefers. It is my understanding that a child 15 is allowed an opinion in custody matters.
Kala @ 15yrs,,,
Most of all, I hope if the mother was justified in her decision to leave with the child that all charges are dropped and they are reunited. I guess I sympathize for mothers.....
