Yesterday, Mommy and I each got a letter from some county office (I really do not care which one at this point) stating that we are not guilty of child neglect…gee, thanks for that nugget of condolence. It has been over four months since you died and we are now, finally NOT GUILTY. When were we guilty actually? Have we been guilty for the past four months? the past six? or even the past 14? Silly me, I thought we have always been innocent in this whole process.
Our legal system is supposed to work on the premise of "innocent until proven guilty." It seems that in the case of your death, we have been presumed guilty all along and only after a police interrogation, medical examiner autopsy and ruling, child protective services exoneration, and random county and/or state offices letters of "not guilty" are we finally found to be innocent of any wrong doing. The whole process irritates me to no end. You died on top of me, I feel guilty enough as it is without having some paper pushing government worker absolving me of your death. Screw them! Screw the whole process! Leave me and my family alone already…it has been over four months already…please, just go away.
