I'm sure alot of you have read or heard of this case by now. A rural Ohio couple modified several of their children's bunk beds in order to, as they said, provide for the childrens' safety from themselves and their siblings.
The news first broke back in September and, wow!, my initial response, like that of most other people hearing about this, was of shock and incredulity. The court has been studying the family's situation for several months now and Judge Timothy Caldwell is apparently going to revisit the case in court some time today.
[Link]Cardwell found no clear evidence that the Gravelles neglected to provide the children with adequate food, clothing, shelter or specialized services. But he said that the children's psychological, behavioral and health problems became too much for the couple.
Whatever happens, I sure hope someone with experience is going to start lending these folks some assistance. They may have done nothing malevolent but, as Judge Caldwell points out, there are some serious issues going on here.
