  • When kids go through situations like that they either survive or take that left that's why they need plenty of therapy sessions before they become killers very sad what they did to this little boy and why he did ask to be in that family pure hatred he looks like such a sweet kid I bet these kids have many questions

  • A message to the Thompson family 👪 ❤ I just wanted to send my love, respect and thanks to you and your family. 🙏💗 Jody, you cane across a broken child who had endured an immense amount of evil, done to him by the very people who were supposed to love and protect him. The fact that John survived and become part of your beautiful family is surely down to his will to survive, his strength of character, your intervention and that John was meant to be your son and his baby sister your daughter. You went above & beyond your call of duty as did your wife and your hearts lead you the rest of the way 💗🙏 John sounds like a lovely, intelligent and caring boy that is thriving now he has love, support and a secure home and thats thanks to the whole of your family. I pray your family is surrounded by love and light and your future is filled with good heath and happiness 😊 🙏 💜💛💙🧡💗
