    And this is why many people are afraid to become foster parents and put themselves out there. Kids can turn on you in a second after you’ve bent over backwards trying to give them a stable life. His word against hers. Doug and his wife have been a God sent in this girls life and anyone that knows them can attest to that.

    There are a whole lot of good people who are falsely accused of things like this. Reserve judgment until the truth all comes out. It is my belief that this man is innocent, and those who know him can attest to his character. Unfounded claims like this are all too common when trying to help our youth in jeopardy. We should always investigate when our young people say something happened, but we also have to take into consideration the previous trauma and behavioral history of the young person making the claim. Lets not publicly ruin this guy’s life over claims of abuse until it is proven HE did the abusing.

    I for one can not believe this so I will stand behind this man. The truth will come out anyone who knows him knows he is a good man. Don’t judge until you know both sides to this horrific story. But remember this young lady needs our prayers too.

    I would bet this kinda thing happens a lot more than most people think. Kids these days think they can do what they want when they want. Whats more, if you whoop their a$$ or send them to dinner without supper and they tell someone later that doesn’t approve of “appropiate necessary punishment”, then your charged with Child Abuse or Child Neglect. Around here, the second the story is published most have already made up your mind that your guilty just because of heresay.
