Hi, I am the grandmother (Paula Edens Baer aka Gammy) who was on the Steve Wilkos Show episode called “Horrific Child Abuse” where I confront my four grandchildrens abusers. The reason I called the show and went on was because I knew they would confess to most of the abuse and this was needed to prove they abused their children. I did this to help my grandchildren to get help.
Many people do not understand this all began when my first grandchild was under two (2) months old back in 2006. It was even reported by Ali Meyer, a reporter from KFOR News Channel 4. And while they were being investigated they ran to another county and the case was close. I didn’t find out where they were for months.
This was not an easy thing to do but it was the right thing to do. We must stand up for the children no matter what it may cost us. And until they can speak and stand up for themselves I will be a voice for them.
It did not surprise me that my daughter stuck by her abusive husband and not her own children. Many women who are in relationships with abusive men are brainwashed that she must stay no matter what the husband does to her or her children. And even though he beats her, she someone believes if she could just love him more he will change. And so, she blames herself for him beating her.
False religions of controlling men and their “stand by their men wives” can play a vital part in the brainwashing by conviencing her it is sin to leave her abusive husband or divorce him and remarry. It is sad to say but we see this so many times in domestic abuse relationships and the ones who suffer are the children.
I grew up with this most my life and seen many women in my family take the side of their abusive child molesting husbands and turn their back on their own children.
This is what we witnessed on the show. Her arms were not around her children they were around the one who abused her and her children. And what is sad is she too abused the children. This is common in domestic abuse.
When her family comes against her husband for the abuse she will turn her back on them, start believing his lies and even blame you. They listen to the abusers lies so much they start believing it is the truth.
I have taken a stand that I will not stand by any abuser, family or not. I don”t care if my family never speaks to me, again. I will not stand by and allow anymore children to be damaged and destroyed by the abusers in my family.
My grandchildren are the heroes, they are the brave ones and they will survive knowing that someone loved them enough to stand up for them.
Four of my grandchildren are safe cause the parents parental rights have been terminated by the judge. And I will fight to see the same thing for my grandson Stephen.
