You do feel guilty, there's no question.
The Gravelles love and miss their children and are devastated and brokenhearted with worry, since their children have been ripped away from them.
Their motives and intentions were good. They would never harm a child.
Many of the statements made concerning this matter are inaccurate or exaggerated. Clearly, there is another side to this story. The Gravelles love and miss their children and are devastated and broken-hearted with worry since their children have been ripped away from them. Their motives and intentions were good. They would never harm a child. The children love their parents and want to come home. The children have been out of control and have caused serious harm to themselves and each other. In order to prevent further injury, Mr. Gravelle constructed enclosures around their twin bunk beds to provide a secure space to keep them safe while the parents were asleep at night. These have been characterized as cages, however, that was not their function. They have no lock, latch, or provision for them. There was no cruelty, excessive restraint or risk of harm. The children were free to leave their beds anytime they wanted. There is a simple buzzer on the door, solely as a safety precaution to wake the parents if the children got out of bed at night.
This case has been very one-sided from the beginning, ... There is absolutely no basis of child abuse or neglect. These are happy children.
One child said, 'I don't want to go home with my fake parents,'.
It is a place of solitude and meditation. When you are in the cell block, there is no peace. We understand the importance of solitude.
