A couple in Van Buren Co has been accused of physically and emotionally abusing their four adopted children. This would make me sad not matter where this happened, but this is especially aggravating coming from my hometown. I have a major soft spot for kids in foster care and adopted children.
Richard and Martha Roesch were arrested for child abuse last Wednesday.
One child said he was "stabbed with a fork", another talked about a history of back trauma from injuries. The youngest, saying she had been shocked with a cattle prod on her "private area".
All of the children say they were forced to wear plastic bags and sleep on tarps -- only getting a bucket for a bathroom in some cases.
Just seeing kids hurt makes me sick to my stomach. Praying for these kids.
