I started this blog eight years ago, when it became clear that no one was going to come to our rescue.
At that time the issue was my adopted son, who had sexually assaulted some of my children and some of the other children we knew, was being released from the Texas juvenile system. He would not have to register. His crimes had been lessened in a plea bargain, and then they were to be sealed.
We lived in the house where he had lived, where he had hurt the children.
I started the blog because I didn’t own a gun. I started the blog so there would be a record.
It has become more than all of that, and (at least so far) we have survived.
I believe in writing. I believe words can stand where people have walked away. So that is what lighthouse is about–a blog about fosters
Wherever you may find us.
