Robin McDaniel was startled from her sleep when the phone rang. She looked at the clock; it was three o’clock in the morning. Her stomach ached at the realization that this was another harassing call from the evilest people alive. “Hello,” she said, trying her best to hide any sign of fear in her voice. They were relentless, calling all hours of the night and laughing.
Robin and her 19-year-old son, Sampson McDaniel-Perez, had temporary protective custody of Sampson’s two daughters, Laurel 19 months old and Mia six months old. The girl’s biological mother, Jill, had been the victim of her father, Pete Stone, since she was eight years old. She was his “special” girl and loved him and hated him at the same time. She would never tell anyone their secrete; especially her mother.
The System tells a story about a ten-year battle fought by Robin and Sampson against the evil intentions of a misguided narcissistic mother, two known child molesters, and our broken Child Protection systems. Jesus answered all the prayers for strength, wisdom, and endurance from Robin and Sampson and continued to wrap His protective arms around the family until the surprising ending. If you think our Child Protection Agencies are proactive at keeping our children safe, this story will surprise you. If you think our Judicial System is fair, this story will disturb you. If you believe that Jesus answers all prayers in His perfect timeframe, this story will strengthen you.
