Today, Monday, August 5, 2013, two of the Williams’ biological daughters testified according to the Skagit Valley Herald. One of them testified that the biological children were punished the same way as the adopted children were and that she never saw marks on their bodies from the spankings. The girls confirmed many of the details from prior witnesses testimonies. Since these children were trained to always tell the truth and to obey adults, I tend to believe what they say. Or at least, I believe that they believe everything they say…
The trial adjourned early so one of the jurors could go to the doctor according to the Skagit Valley Herald.

Maureen can no longer attend the trial as she is on vacation. I will miss her insights but I am happy that she is taking a well deserved break from this.
