Addilyn, abused to death by her parents when she was three months old, is making excellent progress

There are few things in this world that are more heinous than harming children.

True, humans can be cruel at times, and as a species, we have demonstrated our ability to do horrific things, but I believe there is a special rung in hell reserved for those who harm or harass children.

Unfortunately, it occurs far too frequently. Every day, it appears that parents in one part of the world or another are brought to court for crimes against their own children.

One such couple is Brooklyn Tidwell and Michael Fisher. According to sources, they nearly killed their daughter Addilyn, who was less than three months old at the time.

Following the incident, PFisher was found guilty of attempted murder and severe child abuse, and was sentenced to 50 years in prison. Meanwhile, Tidwell pleaded guilty to child abuse and was sentenced to probation. She is prohibited from having any contact with Addilyn in the future as part of her punishment.

We don’t need to go into detail about how painfully unfair this occurrence is. Addilyn was a newborn baby, a completely innocent soul, when she was subjected to horrendous torture by those who were supposed to love and protect her.

Terra Woodward, Addilyn’s great aunt, took her in after she was removed from Fisher and Tidwell’s care. She promised to never leave her side.

Terra wasn’t the only one who pledged to make Addilyn’s life as pleasant as possible from now on. Trevor Woodward, Terra’s husband, is also active in her care. They’ve become her adoptive parents as a couple.

Doctors warned the couple that Addilyn would be troubled for the rest of her life as a result of the trauma she had received. They even said the girl could be unable to move on her own.

But this small fighter is built of tough stuff.

According to accounts, Addilyn has fought her way through the ordeal. Not only has she shown that she is capable of moving and expressing emotions, but it is now believed that her impaired eyesight will heal completely.

Furthermore, Addilyn’s community has rallied around her, as have strangers who have expressed their unwavering support for her path.

Addilyn’s incredible resilience has maybe never been better demonstrated than on her first birthday, yet she appears to be making new gains with each passing month.
