Living in starvation, since she could, recall, and now, as she got out of that state of mind and being, the nightmares still, came repeatedly, the effects of childhood abuse is still just not, short-term here! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
At Eight Years of Age, She Only Weighed 29.7 Pounds, She’d Rummaged Through the Trash Cans at School to Find Food, the Stepfather Claimed that He Didn’t Have the Money, the Maternal Grandfather Criticized, that Both His Daughter and Her Husband Were Using iPhones
A young girl, Huang had been abused by her stepfather, Lin for two years straight, she’d only been fed a bite of food to eat per day, at age eight, she’d only weighed under thirty pounds, became nothing but “skins and bones”, she’d started stealing in school, and begging for food too, rummaged through the trash cans for foods, the instructor notified social services, and that was when Lin’s neglect of his stepdaughter came out into the open; the Kaohsiung District Court sentenced him on malicious acts of preventing young children from growing up healthy, sentenced Lin to four years two months.
what is being done, to a, young child!
Lin said he was troubled economically, that he couldn’t give his young stepdaughter the money for the foods that she needed, by the child’s father stated, that Lin and his own daughter both had iPhones to use, that they DO, have the money. The mother of the child, Huang had the charges dropped against her, and the judge, in the trials, scolded her hard, “As a mother, you’d not protected your own daughter from harm, you’re, an unfit mother.”
The child’s mother had her out of wedlock, at age twenty-five, she’d married Lin with her six-year-old young daughter, and gave birth to another daughter a year later; the stepdaughter was cared for by Lin, but he’d abused her, and only fed her one bite at mealtimes, and, only, allowed her three pieces of apples too. And he’d used the excuses of how the young child was misbehaving to strangle her, the abuse her, and, worried that his abuse of her might get busted, put the child in the long-sleeves and pants that covered up the signs of abuse.
As the police interrogated, the child told them, that other than where she “uses for peeing” she’d been beaten everywhere else on her body, because of hunger, she’d gotten up in the middle of the nights, to steal the cookies, the leftovers to fill her stomach up. And she can only take the opportunities of the food provisions they give to her at school, to stuff herself up, and sometimes, she’d had to steal the foods, rummage through the trash, to find the leftovers to get fed.
The maternal grandfather had once taken her to live with him, found that she’d become, “skeletal”, that before he’d put all the foods he’d prepared on the tables, the foods were already, eaten completely by his granddaughter already, he’d questioned his own daughter, and she’d not given him a response, in the end, he was turned away, from wanting to visit the young granddaughter again. At the age of eight, the child’s school found her covered in bruising all over her body, reported it to the social services, and that was when they’d found, that she’d sustained abuse long-term, as she was placed, they’d found that her growth curve was way lower than girls her age, she had low calcium in her blood, and was, slightly, anemic.
As Lin was called in, he’d denied the allegations of child abuse, claimed that the family wasn’t economically well, that was why the child had, starved, that her injuries had nothing to do with him; and, as he was taken in, he’d finally admitted to abusing the young girl, at his bail hearing, he’d, denied having confessed to the abuse. The judge found, that the child had been starved long-term, that it was most definitely not due to disciplinary means, that it was, child abuse pure and simple, otherwise, the young girls couldn’t possibly be so famished like she’d become, and, criticized Lin for denying all the accusations, despite the evidence showed that he had, abused the child.
The courts also, terminated the mother, Huang’s, maternal rights in sum, and gave the custody of the young child to her maternal grandfather. Currently, the young girl is weighed at almost sixty-two pounds, but is still having the nightmares of her former days of abuse, she’d screamed in her sleep: “Don’t beat me”!, and as she woke, she’d, hugged her grandfather tight and asked, “grandpa, you’re not going to take me back to dad’s again, right?”
And so, this sort of abuse, doesn’t just affect the body, but also, the psychological, the mental too, and this child is going to continue to have the nightmares of her former years of abuse and neglect from her stepfather and her mother for a long time to come, and these unfitting, awful parents who starve their own young deserved the harshest possible sentence, for what they did, to this young girl!
