My heart absolutely breaks when I think about this little boy, his lifeless body abandoned near Lake Lavon in Wylie, TX. His parents are yet to be found.
According to the Dallas news, “Wylie’s Angel” appears to be around 6 years of age, and had various medical complications. Police said their was signs that he had been fed intravenously. His body held no signs of trauma.
My heart breaks not only for him, but for his parents, assuming, of course, this is a missing child. Surely if this was a local little boy, someone would notice him missing? School, neighbors, other family members? It is too horrifying to think that he was an unloved, unwanted child, his body thrown out like garbage. According to dallasnews.com yesterday, no progress has been reported in this case.
Wylie is only about 15 minutes from where I live, it is devastating to know something like this has happened so close to home. I shouldn’t be surprised anymore, it seems horror stories involving children are popping up all the time. I just don’t understand it. Even when my children are driving me absolutely batty, underlying my frustration and aggravation, is always love. There has never been a single moment in their lives, when I wished they were gone, or that I was childless. Every action, every thought, every gesture, even when disciplining them, was done with love. When they have been grounded, and they lay in their beds, crying their eyes out at the injustices of it all, they still know they are loved.
For all those children that are abused and neglected, my heart breaks. What would it be like to grow up without ever knowing a parent’s love? To have the one person (or people) in your life, that is supposed to love you and cherish you, regardless of who you are, what you have done, what you look like, or what problems you have, abandon you? Or Abuse you and do mean, horrible things? Or to grow up NEVER knowing love? All young children love their parents with all their hearts, and it is from our parents that we learn to love ourselves, and the world. What happens to the children that never have their love returned? Never learn what it is like to be loved, or to love themselves?
I pray that Wylie’s Angel’s parents are found. Either to bring them peace, or to bring them to justice.
