Jen, I am so sorry for you and your family. I am crying so hard for you and your children right now. I cannot understand any of this, nor will I ever. I pray that God wraps his loving arms around you and your family and gives you all the strength and guidance that you need. Sending my heartfelt prayers to all. Blessings Michelle, Tom, Kourtland, Karrington and Kensely from Indiana.
