Supreme Court says no to the Gravelles

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday it will not hear the appeal of the custody case of Michael and Sharon Gravelle. The court gave no reason on its Web site for its decision. In June, the court denied the Clarksfield Township couple's request for a retrial on Huron County Juvenile Court Judge Timothy Cardwell's decision giving permanent custody of the children to the county. The 11 youngsters have been in various foster homes since authorities removed them from the Gravelles' rural Wakeman home in September 2005. Read the rest of this story in Today's Reflector...<>/p>

Good! (Anonymous)

Now go serve your time, and when you're sitting in there, I hope you have plenty of time to think about what you did to those children and how it affected their lives. When you get out, you should get a JOB, learn the finer points of life when you have to fend for yourselves, and leave any and all children alone. No matter how much time is served, it isn't nearly enough. People like you give the rest of the 'good' foster parents a bad name.

Pray for all......

To an extent, I do feel bad for these folks. I could never imagine having 11 children, let alone most of them being special needs children. What was Children Services thinking letting them take that many to begin with? They did what they thought was right. What they thought was keeping the children safe from themselves and from others. I pray those children can grow up and be productive, if not self sustaining. Also, that the Gravelles can put this behind them and go on with their lives.
