Child Abuse Hits Hawaii Every Day.
Stop the Abuse.
“She kept crying and I…slapped her across the head, which in turn, made her more upset, and then I lost control…I began to shake her; I threw her onto the bed, where she rolled toward the window hitting her head against the windowsill…I then lifted her up…threw her into her crib…she began crying even more…I dropped her to the floor and I sat on her, then I got up and laid on top of her releasing the full weight of my body on her…(she) kept crying, so then I picked her up off the floor, placing both of her arms at her side and ‘bear hugged’ her very tightly, where her cry became faint.”
Hill’s daughter, Liyah was a healthy 5-month-old baby. Now, because of the multiple serious injuries inflicted by her father, she is disabled and requires care for life.
Hard to read, but reality.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to grow up in a nurturing family!
