Vickie, I enjoyed reading your blog and recognize that as a human being we are ever revolving. I do believe that some of the comments are harsh, and viewed in one dimension I could agree with a lot that has been said. However, what you are being accused of is just what these bloggers are doing.....judging without all of the facts. I agree with you about deadbeat dads, and I think that Slade should pay attention to his own children. Without financial , emotional, spiritual support, you are merely a sperm donor. I'm sure that there is much more to Brooks' arrest than what meets the eye. i.e., Internet Research.
I wish you peace and best wishes to Briana for good health.
