Never Going To Give Up
My sister: age 13, has downs-syndrome. She is currently adopted by my grandmother, who's mind is terribly twisted, and my grandmother, Pam Guess, is not capable of fulfilling Lynsay's social, physical, and cognitive skills. Pam has recently placed her into homeschool with my grandfather. Richard Guess, my grandfather, molested my mother when she was a little girl. My mom, Tiffany Ridgway, told her mother about the incident and she proceeded to nothing but PROTECT him. That kind of decision is outrageous, simply inconsiderate, and neglectful of her only daughter. Now, Richard is in charge of Lynsay's every move, her academics, and her free time. It is as if my granny wants Richard to be Lynsay's only friend. She is putting Lynsay through everything that my mom had to go through and Lynsay does NOT have to go through this. They constantly say negative and degrading comments about me, my mother, and my sister Courtney, and I have a witness that will testify. At one point, My grandma and grandpa were saying that we were all criminals and more so, Lynsay busted on in tears because she could not handle the stress of the brainwashing activity taking place in that household. My grandpa has NO idea how to educate a child, much less a mentally challenged child. They are putting my vulnerable and innocent young sister through hell and it needs to stop. I am willing and capable of taking care of her and I know for a fact she would be thrilled to come live with me. I will not let this abuse go on any longer. I will be the one to rescue her from those terrible people.
