Prayers for Teresa and her family. Such tragedy is incomprehensible.

Wishing love, justice and peace for her children and her family.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

So tragic. Those poor babies.

What monster could do such a thing to another human being?

I wish there was a way we could have been more of a support to her. There was no indication she was having trouble with him in her previous posts. Except one small line in an early thread was a flag.

I wonder if there is a way we at MDC could help moms in situations like this?

I looked through her past post too. There really weren't any major red flags. I think the only thing we can do in situations like this is to constantly model gentle and fierce love for one another. For some mamas this may be the only place they can come with problems like domestic abuse. I would like to think we look like a safe place to talk about abusive relationships of all kinds. A resource page in Parents as Partners might be a good place to compile list of helpful links, maybe even list them by state. It's just such a sad situation

Just FYI, I read that along with the 2 young children, Theresa and her husband were raising his 11yo DD from a previous marriage.

I'm especially keeping that young girl in my heart right now, since I'm thinking that she won't be getting as much sympathy as the other two. Although losing your stepmother at the hands of your father can't be any easier than losing a birth parent, yk?

It's so tragic. I can only imagine the pain and trauma she and her poor little ones must have had to endure in the months and years leading up to this horrible end. And her 11yo step daughter must feel so tormented. I hope they all can find peace.

Hi, everyone...I've removed a few posts that referenced a temporarily removed post. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Please be cautious posting anything that might have legal implications for anyone involved (MDC User Agreement). MDC cannot host speculation about the facts surrounding this terrible tragedy.

Thank you so much, and please don't hesitate to contact a moderator with any questions or concerns.


I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!
