You never really answered my question about why you think highly of Sharon/Promise. Please can you help me understand why you do? It really would help me much.

Re: your comment about my furnishing more detail for others to comment on, I will save it for the courts. I am not interested in the court of public opinion. Everything is far too personal for myself and my family, and too much to put into words even if I tried. I am only posting to get the bare facts.

Since you are someone in the know, may I request you refute or confirm these facts?
