I know I've been missing for a while. I've still been scrappin' and craftin' and I'd like to say I've been super busy but I really haven't. To be honest I have been completely obsessed with the Caylee Anthony case. Scouring the internet for every last possible bit of info. I even joined a message board so that I could be "in the know" with the latest information.
Now, I have always been a true crime junkie. I even went to college with the intention of working in Forensics. That hasn't quite panned out, you know how life gets in the way... Anyway, I have always been into this sort of thing, but there is something about this case that has me completely immersed. At first there was something that made me identify with Caylee's mother, Casey. We are a similar age, our daughters are the same age. I wanted to believe that there was no way she could hurt her baby. But yesterday the Orange County Sheriffs Department released 400 pages of information pertaining to the case and its shocking to say the least.
When Casey's 3 year old allegedly disappeared, she did nothing. Waited 30 days until her parents confronted her. She has stolen from friends and family. Lied to everyone she has ever known and yet her little girl is out there someone. I want so much for Caylee to be found, but I know the sad reality here as in many cases similar. What you have is a selfish young woman who cared so much more for herself than her child.
It just rocks me to the core. This whole case. Every time I read something new on this case, I just want to hug my daughter a little tighter. I think of Caylee and the hugs her mother didn't give her and I give Goose an extra one. As if, some where, Caylee is being comforted by it.
