She used the proper channels and 3 months ago she had to pay a ridiculous amount of money, but she just got the court order from her (this week) to see the kids every weekend. She went to look for her grandchildren on Friday and was told that the youngest was at a friend’s house and that the oldest could not walk. She immediately took her to the hospital. She was transferred to LeBonheur with serious injuries and burns.”
Widby continued: “I saw her… this girl had her hair cut off, she is malnourished, she has broken ribs and many burns on her body in various stages of healing. These injuries are presumed to be from her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. Karen was later notified that she had found the decomposing body of her youngest grandson,” before adding, “These children have endured so much pain, abandonment, and death. I desperately want to help lessen the financial burden that burial will present for the very young and necessary items for the elderly. They have a lot to heal and I want us to come together and take a load off Karen’s plate.”
