What do you hope for?

I hope to see my little brother again someday. 
My mom died ten years ago in a tragic car accident when I was 16, leaving myself and my three brothers to my step father. Five years ago my siblings and I were tried of the crimes our stepfather continued to commit against us and others around him. Theft, neglect, government fraud, and rape. Just to name a few. It took all of our strength to stand up against this man. Unfortunately our step father comes from a family of well known lawyers and flew our step father out of the country and had him transfer custody of our youngest brother (at age nine) over to one of my step fathers sister. That sister secretly placed our little brother with a strange family to take care of him in exchange for money. They don't even want my little brother, but wont let us have him. To this day we are not aloud to have any contact with him and do not know if he is safe, let alone in a loving home. My siblings and I are good outstanding people of the community, have good jobs and would love to have our little brother come live with anyone of us. There is no reason for this cruelty except for pure malice. My step fathers family said we betrayed the family by reporting our step fathers crimes and thus warrant this unspeakable punishment.

Its like something out of a soap opera, but its true. He just turned fourteen and I can only hope that my little brother remembers how much we all love him and will some day want to see us again. I have to put my faith in this and in heavenly father and keep moving forward the best I can.

  6. Oh, I am so sorry. My own story is similar, although not quite with the same ending. I do know that God gives blessings when we go through so much pain. I know He loves you.

  7. Wow....this made It made me so emotional. I can't even imagine what your family goes through everyday. There must be some way to find your brother. Did they change his name? There must be resources out there that could help you find him. Course, resources usually cost money. Wow...
