TRUST

If someone trusts you enough to let you in, and shares their fears, struggles and vulnerabilities. Know that it has taken them a lot of courage to do so. Sometimes all that they expect from you is a patient hearing and your support and acceptance.

Don’t be dismissive, judgemental or prejudiced at such moments. Because sometimes without realizing you would end up doing more damage than you can make amends for.

It might leave the other person feeling belittled and that causes hurt. The walls that they brought down to let you in, may go up and sometimes, for good.

A moment’s lapse and carelessness on your part can be detrimental to the relationship.

It is easier to build strong children than to fix broken adults !

This has been one of FACAA’s driving philosophies from day one !

We have such a wonderful group of supporters and followers, a group that grows daily.

Many of you express shock, anger, frustration and many other emotions about the seemingly growing number of child abuse cases and domestic violence incidents. The question is often raised – are they more frequent or are they being reported more? That question is hard to answer but one thing is certain, we are becoming more aware, which can only help to bring an end to such crimes and support the survivors, and that is what we at FACAA are all about.

Most people seem to agree that some of our biggest social issues are drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment, mental health issues, domestic violence and child abuse. In many ways, these issues are often inter-related.

A quick browse through the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) website shows that many people who are facing these issues also experienced childhood trauma of some kind.

As the old saying goes “It is easier to build strong children than to fix broken adults” – FACAA are here to build strong children. The cycles of abuse need to be broken from a ground zero level. We are here to empower and protect kids and to assist in rebuilding those children who have been hurt by others, with early interventions that will hopefully prevent them from becoming adults who never resolved their pain and confusion and so carry that on into a world that all just seems too much for them.

People sometimes ask me why I put so much time, effort and emotion into my work with FACAA and my other victim support work, especially as it is all voluntary. My reason is much the same as it is for many of the FACAA team – because if someone had heard my cries for help and intervened, things could have been very different, not only for me but for my children. While children are out there needing help, crying and thinking that no one hears them, the whole FACAA team will be here, listening, protecting, supporting and fighting for legislative change.

This is the legacy that I will then leave to my children and to all Australian children. (GE)

Harley Woodford who stood on and crushed 3 year old Bella Jade Lawrence to death, has been given a pathetic minimum sentence of 6.5 years behind bars.

Little Bella Jade Lawrence accidentally tripped her mother’s former boyfriend, Harley Woodford, while he was carrying dishes at their Horsham home in September 2015.

Woodford, then 20 years old, punished her by standing on her stomach, using the full force of his 100 kilogram frame to crush the little girl, who weighed just 14 kilograms.

The force ruptured the little girl’s liver and damaged her kidneys, yet Woodford sent her to bed with a glass of water and said nothing of what happened.

He told the little girl to tell her mother she had a stomach ache and to go to bed.
However, Bella became “limp and unresponsive” the next day, and died in hospital. At the time, no one, except Woodford, knew why.

Woodford kept his culpability a secret until the matter was subject to coronial investigation, Justice Jane Dixon said in the Supreme Court of Victoria today.

He earned a reduction in his sentence by confessing to the crime seven months after Bella’s death.

Justice Dixon sentenced Woodford, who is now 22, to nine years and six months’ imprisonment for child homicide, with a non-parole period of six-and-a-half years.

She said immaturity, an inability to manage anger, and the stresses of work and parenting had contributed to the killing, but acknowledged Woodford was remorseful.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO HE WAS NOT REMORSEFUL ! He told the little girl to lie about what happened and if he had gotten her help he may have saved her life !

Then he took months to come clean ! That is not remorse, that is a pathetic coward looking for an easy way out !

Why can our judges not tell the difference ?

“[Bella was] a defenceless child who looked up to you for care and protection,” she said in sentencing Woodford.

“You were prepared to put your own interests above her welfare.”

Speaking outside court, Bella’s father Jonathan Lawrence told reporters the day had been “disgusting” and hearing “justice has been served” confused and saddened him.

“Today’s sentencing will never be enough to put my family at peace of what has happened,” he read from a prepared statement on Friday.

Only when our judges learn the difference between looking for an easy sentence and remorse, will we see any sort of justice.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bella’s family and friends. Fly high little Angel.(A)
