Why stay put, Shawn?

By CAN'TwaitTOblog     Jan 22, 2007 in Crime
AS A MOTHER OF FOUR YOUNG BOYS AND A LITTLE GIRL I AM GOING TO ASK WHAT IS ON EVERYBODY'S MINDS WHY WASN'T SHAWN HOME A LONG TIME AGO?
I AM 26 YEARS OLD WHICH TO A MAJORITY IS STILL YOUNG. SO WHEN I SAY I CAN REMEMBER WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE 11-15 YEARS OLD MY MEMORY IS PRETTY CLEAR. AT THAT TIME IN MY LIFE I KNEW WHO MY PARENTS WERE, WHERE WE LIVED, RIGHT AND WRONG. WITH THAT SAID I WAS SHOCKED TO MY CORE TO READ ABOUT A CHILD WHO WAS RIPPED FROM HIS FAMILY, LIVING WITH A STRANGER AS IF HE WAS STAYING WITH HIS GRANDPARENTS. THE MEDIA HAS ASKED EVERY QUESTION POSSIBLE EXCEPT THIS SHAWN, WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SOMETHING?
IF I WAS HIS MOTHER I WOULDN'T BE WONDERING WHY MR. DEVLIN'S NEIGHBORS OR POLICE DIDN'T RECONIZE HIM, I WOULD WANT TO KNOW WHY MY CHILD GAVE UP SO MANY CHANCES TO BE RETURNED HOME. WHEN THE POLICE STOPPED YOU ON YOUR BIKE WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SOMETHING? YOU HAD ACCESS TO PHONE, AND INTERNET WHY NOT USE IT? MR. DEVLIN WORKED TWO JOBS AND I'M SURE HE WAS NOT HOME OFTEN WHY NOT CALL 911?
HE WAS 11 YEARS OLD NOT 3 ! HE HAD TO HAVE REMEMBERED HIS PARENTS,HIS HOME, HIS SCHOOL AND HIS FRIENDS. MY MAIN PIONT IS HE WAS NOT TIED UP IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY FOR FOUR YEARS. HE EVEN HAS PIERCINGS THAT HAD TO BE DONE PROFESSIONALLY WHICH MEANS AN ADULT HAD TO GIVE PERMISSION. DID MR. DEVLIN TAKE HIS PRETEND SON TO THE TATTOO PALOR AS FAMILY OUTING?
I UNDERSTAND THAT THESE OUR THINGS SHAWN AND HIS FAMILY MUST DISCUSS TOGETHER AND IT'S NO BODY ELSE'S BUSINESS. BUT IF I WAS HIS MOTHER I WOULD BE A LITTLE MORE THAN HURT THAT WHILE I WAS GOING THOUGH THE AGONY OF THE UNKNOWN MY CHILD WAS LIVING A NEW LIFE WITH HIS ABDUCTOR. HAVING PLENTY OF WAYS TO CONTACT ME, TALKING TO POLICE, AND GETTING PIERCINGS, WHILE I WAS IMAGINING HIM BEING TORTURED AND KILLED.
LIKE I SAID IT'S NONE OF MY BUSINESS!
