This is me. These are my thoughts and ideas and this is my life. I would like to write a book that someone besides myself would want to read. I dream of a better tomorrow, not just for myself but for our country and our world. I love animals and nature and people sometimes scare me even though I will throw myself between a dog I don't know and my own dog. If you follow me hopefully I will make it a habit to write and you will learn more as we go, and hopefully I will too.

I've Got Little Levon On My Mind
What is wrong with this picture?Dad goes out with baby, brings baby home,
leaves baby on front porch to unlock the back door, baby goes missing for two
weeks before his disappearance is reported.Poor Levon Wameling. This poor child. I hope that he's alive and that he's with someone who is loving him and treating him like he is worth something because apparently his dad thought of him like he was a stray cat or something. I can just picture him saying "Oh shit, where did that kid get off to?" No, it's not funny, it's pathetic.
Where was this child’s extended family?I know I don’t see my grandchildren every day, but after three or four
days, if they haven’t called, I’m calling them.I expect to at least hear their voice in the background if not talking
directly to me.Also, if they
disappeared off my porch I would immediately start yelling for them, not
sitting on that information for two weeks.Yes, we all long for a little peace and quiet, but not like this.
Yes, the father is a person of interest.He definitely should be.I have
to wonder if there were any agencies involved with this child.Did the Department of Social Services have an
interest in him, and if so, did they check up on him?I know they have many cases that are
sometimes overwhelming, but these children need to be checked on.I believe Levon’s mother was in rehab at the
time and awareness of his disappearance came about when she got out.How tragic for her, to take the first step to
regaining her life and have her child ripped from it.
I cannot imagine losing my child, no matter what age, and not being
frantic and crazy to find him.I have to
wonder what the world is coming to when children are treated as possessions,
not people, and God, why are some allowed to conceive when they are so
incapable of taking care of themselves, let alone another human being?You have to take a test to drive a car, you
have to get a license to get married, but anyone, ANYONE, can have a baby!And they are.And there are people out there that try for years and years, and pay
their life savings for fertility drugs or surrogates, or adoption fees, who
might never have that baby.These people
are probably good people who for some reason or another just cannot
conceive.Yet, that high school dropout
that smokes dope and takes pills can get knocked up by the guy that beats her
and calls her filthy names in front of their children can have and keep the
child they conceive because there’s food on the table and the house is neat.
There should be a test.An
unrelated expert on parenting and children should come into the house and
observe conditions before birth.Maybe
install hidden cameras.That way people
might forget about acting, and start being real.Then, if they’re not mature enough or
responsible enough to raise a child then it would be taken and given to parents
who would raise it and love it and not treat it like a tax deduction or a meal
ticket.I know it’s extreme but so is
the fact that children are being hurt and killed by the very people who are
supposed to love and protect them.
It makes me so angry when I hear about a parent who has killed their
kids.And it breaks my heart and brings
me to tears.I think about that baby,
that child, who never got a chance.And
people will say that it was God’s will, that she was born for a reason and she
must have done what she was supposed to do, etc, etc., but I know this is
because no one can make sense of something like killing a kid, and no one
should because it shouldn’t make sense.Ever.
So I am praying for Levon, and I’m praying for his mother and hoping
that if this ends up badly that she will continue her recovery with him in
mind, because if he were here he would deserve a mother who cared more for him
than drugs.I pray they find him alive,
safe and sound.I pray that this doesn’t
tear his family apart but brings them closer, and I pray that this case gets resolved
and closed, and that someone pays.
I hope you get to go home Levon.You’re in a lot of hearts right now, and we’re all praying that you are
