Stealing from a special needs family: Breaking In

I wanted to update everyone on the last little bit of drama surrounding the theft of the Lost and Tired family van.

A few days ago,  we came home and found that the deadbolt on the front door had been tampered with. The face plate was all scratched up and our wasn’t working well and the barrel was jamming.
What clearly happened is that someone tried forcing the wrong key in the deadbolt.  I would assume it was the same people that stole our van and kept the house key.

That’s the only thing that makes any sense.

It wasn’t Lizze or myself.  That’s all we know for sure,  aside from the fact that whoever did this,  didn’t make it in.

This doesn’t really change anything as we knew that this could happen.  Hopefully,  at least they now know that it’s not going to work.

I’d be lying if I said that this doesn’t kinda freak me out.  At the same time,  at least I know they never made it into the house.

We really do need to get the heck out of here. Although,  now that we have a car payment, we are forced to put the move on hold,  indefinitely. The really ironic part is that the house we had found is actually still available.  I had thought it was no longer available but I received an email to the contrary.

Frustrating…  That doesn’t quite say what I’m feeling.

If someone catches a person breaking into their house, the homeowner has the moral right to torture and kill the intruder–plain and simple. Your home and your family are sacred to you–so any person who breaks or attempts to break-in should pay a terrible price.


I understand how you feel my car was stolen a few years ago around Christmas & I had someone change the locks for me. It was a horrible sick feeling to think they will come back and feel unsafe. When I got my car back out the impound lot I had to pay over $200 to get it out and ran out of gas close to downtown which made me feel really unsafe.luckily some nice men helped me push my car because I just had staples removed. I decided to move since I felt violated and just needed to removed myself & kids. We had a bully problem at the school at the time. So we moved in what i thought was a nice neighborhood to only have the shooting travel and move in by us. I feel your frustrating. I didn't even want my car when i picked it up. It was nasty and I had to put my kids it. I pray that whoever took it doesn't damage it. Two years and I still haven't gotten any money and the person didn't even go to jail. I hope it gets better for your family.


Far out. How horrible for you, to think someone had tried to break in and cause more devastation for your family. Thank goodness they got no further than wrecking your lock. I hope you are able to move soon.


I wish I could win the lottery and make all of this go away for you and your family.


I'm so sorry, this must be awfully stressful for you all. Did you call the police? Maybe they could have found a fingerprint or two… ?
