My heart hurts. I’ve never met Ayla or Trista or Justin. I have no ties to anyone related to Ayla. I don’t even live in Maine and have never visited there. But my heart still hurts for this beautiful little girl who went missing.
I often wonder, if my heart hurts and I have never met Ayla, how is it for the ones who are privileged to? I don’t know how they are functioning, but I figure they are finding an inner strength to push through their unimaginable hurt so that they can do everything in their power for Ayla.
Of course with that sentiment, I am referring to the Reynoldses and not the DiPietros. With this latest “The DiPietros speak”, I am left feeling even more outraged, even more hurt. These people only come out to defend themselves. They only speak when they feel goaded to do so by someone and it is never to talk about Ayla or plead to the so-called “kidnapper”.
Justin wants to ask LE “Where is my daughter?” Why doesn’t he ask the “kidnapper” that? If he is so innocent why isn’t he yelling and screaming at LE to stop searching for a body and start searching for a live Ayla. Why is that so hard? Is it still not the time? If you “know” someone has your daughter and you see LE using all their resources and energy on the wrong thing, why aren’t you up in their face demanding they do something else?
If he’s not calling LE for a good reason, is that the same as having to wait for an answer till he deems the time is right? Phoebe said McCausland needs to get his facts straight, maybe she needs to learn what a lie is. She didn’t just lie once about not being home, she lied multiple times in that same interview. Elisha said the detective told her he thought she was telling the truth, could that have been to put her at ease so maybe she felt comfortable to tell more?
Did they bother inviting Courtney to come defend herself too or was she busy playing Superwoman and updating her Pinterest? Or is she just trying to avoid any media so we all forget she was even in the home that night?
“My daughter did not come to her demise down in my house.” Who uses the word demise? It is a euphemism for death, something to gloss over how severe death is. Is it because he couldn’t bring himself to say the word death? What does “down in my house” even mean? But the most hurtful of all is out of this whole article Ayla’s name was only said once. It was yet another article about my, me and I.
I do have a heavy heart after this article but it also makes me want to fight harder. All the DiPietros keep doing when they speak is reminding us that the only ones they care for are themselves. Let us remember that we all came together for Ayla and let’s not forget the gift we can give. If you live in Maine or the surrounding states take time to search your property. If you don’t live in any of these places, circulate Ayla’s missing flier either online or in your town, send your thoughts and prayers to Ayla, her family, law enforcement and everyone searching, and most of all, despite the selfishness of her paternal family, have hope.
