I will not "get over" the fact that she got away with this and there is not one person who has the "right" to tell me or anybody else "to get over it".
It is a mind your own business situation, I can get over or not get over anything I want to.
Of course there are ways to help abused children! Foster parenting, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, volunteer to be a court appointed special advocate, volunteer at a shelter for abused women and children, etc

You are wasting your precious energy and time on something that will never, ever change. Channel it into action and help the kids that can still be helped!!

Hey, do what you want. Spend the rest of your life fretting over it if you want, but it wont do any good. AND, it's not that we dont care about Caylee, or about what happened to her, but there is nothing that can be done now, so the best thing to do is to just move on.

My precious energy is spent 48 hours a week taking care of an 11 month old that just started walking, a 5 year old that I get ready, take and pick up from school everyday, take to activities, play with constantly and happens to have a birthday on August 9th the same as Caylee's.
Also their 2 1/2 month old puppy that I am training and housebreaking. Also waitress on Sat nights. I don't have time or energy to take in Foster children because I am 66 years old and have raised my children.
You will have to do it.
What I CAN do, is to never forget the little girl and I am NOT going to.
My grandaughter is 5, Caylee should have been 6 years old, going to school, socker, dancing lessons, swimming lessons, having sleepovers and playing with Barbie dolls.
I hope her mother enjoys college.

Then honor her memory because I will.

Ok. We will have to leave it at that.
