Sometimes it feels like Ayla will never have justice.

Sometimes I fear Ayla will be forgotten.

Sometimes I think you’ll get away with what you’ve done.

Sometimes I get angry but then I remember how you must be feeling…

… and I feel a little better.

    Please light a candle for Ayla ❤

    Also everyone please remember our friends at Ayla’s facebook pages and blogs. Many people are working to keep Ayla on everyone’s minds. Thank you all for the time you devote to Ayla. Keep reading, commenting, sharing and liking. Ayla’s voices won’t be silenced. The truth will come out and Ayla and those who love her will finally have answers and justice.

    Ha ha! I hope they do feel like that! I bet people do watch them and wonder about Ayla. And they always will until the truth comes out.
    I bet they hope people get tired of thinking about this and leave them alone. But I don’t think people will ever really forget about Ayla.

      I think even if people aren’t watching them, they will always feel like they are.

    People are always going to remember that Ayla has been majorly harmed. And at such a vulnerable age. We cannot stand the thought that Ayla was hurt, suffered and is still missing. It will always be in people’s minds when dealing with the Dipietros and others. And wondering about the last people to have her in their care is totally a normal thing to do. And adding to that normal wondering, how crazy sounding some of Justin words and actions have been! Well even how the all have acted.

    Also it just strikes fear in many people’s heart’s at the thought that any of our babies can just disappear and the wondering about the hell the child went through. So they all are going to have to accept it will always be somewhere in people’s minds and hearts.

      The DiPietros act as if they have secret knowledge that Ayla is all right. That may have been, at first, because they believed or wanted the world to believe, that they assumed Ayla was safe with one of the Reynolds.
      But after three long years, they still show no great worry over Ayla’s kidnapping. I can only assume that Justin and his family are comfortable with the status quo. Whatever it may be.

    mama did you make that poster for Ayla? “WHERE IS AYLA” “PLEASE BRING AYLA HOME”
    That poster with Ayla is beautiful. Thank you for making it (?) and (for sure) sharing it with us.

    I think it is relevant that Ayla needs us to stand up and say we can not let our citizens, especially when they are totally vulnerable, like Ayla was – as she was a young toddler – just disappear. And it should be noted that there are questions about the care she was getting when she was reported missing from her fathers home. We need to find out what happened for Ayla and all our children.

      I didn’t make it MsP 🙂 I think I saw it on Ayla’s Angels’ page.

      ” We need to find out what happened for Ayla and all our children.”

      I agree. They are our little citizens who can’t speak for themselves.

      Don’t you think it significant thst at no time did LE issue a warning to parents in the neighborhood to be aware of a midnight marauder stealing babies?

      • mountain mama

        March 6, 2015 at 9:54 pm

        Yup and from news vids it was clear that parents were frightened for their own children in the beginning. I think LE had an idea of what was up but until they were able to completely rule out an abduction, they didn’t say anything either way. Does anyone remember the date that LE publicly ruled out an abduction?

          That would take some time to research as far as I am concerned. But I think it was fairly soon.

          MM, Not sure about the date when LE ruled out the abduction but I found this on Websleuths timeline of the case: (Much later than I remembered it.)

          Jan. 31, 2011 more@link:

          “We have searched that home and we have found not one piece of evidence to lead us to believe Ayla was abducted,” Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety said. “We think one or all three of the adults have info they haven’t told us and we need that info in order to find Ayla.”

          January 31, 2012 more@link:

          “We think there are still people out there that have specific information that they haven’t told us. Not only the three individuals in the home, but there may be others. One call can crack this case wide-open and we’re waiting for that call,” McCausland said.

    Children are such a blessing and so innocent in all they do. They love unconditionally, laugh without reserve and trust with their whole heart. I do hope that every person who has stayed silent is haunted and watched daily. They do not deserve to be able to “get on with their lives”.

    When a person steals life from another they deserve nothing but justice.

    Great choice of video’s to use. I hope they do feel like they’re constantly being watched.

    There is not enough fairness in this world. What happened to Ayla?

      Unfortunately today, the perp is treated more fairly than the victim.

      There is such a big need for a cold case squad in Maine. It is needed in every state. Just because time has passed, it doesn’t make the stealing of a persons life less important. I really do believe if a fresh set of eyes is allowed in on Ayla’s case, an arrest and conviction (possibly multiple) will follow.

      There is no reason why all three in the home cannot be tried together for what happened to Ayla. Every person there was responsible for her. In my state, ALL ADULTS are required to report abuse, neglect, etc. of a child or be criminally responsible.

      I hope an investigative reporter will take the time to go over Ayla’s case. They need to find the connection…..(who is Justin’s father? Who does Phoebe have connections with? etc.).

      Something is stopping the AG from prosecuting or allowing other agencies to look at this case, and it does not “pass the smell test”. My biggest fear is that another child will end up being hurt by allowing these people to walk free.

      In the Delano Wilson case, he was the second child to be “hurt” by this man who is supposed to be his father. If Delano’s father had been in prison for what happened to his first child, I think Delano would still be with us. Any person disgusting enough to hurt a child once, will do it again.

        The mother of Willie’s daughter confessed to causing the injuries and is serving time for it.

    From U4A post…
    Detective Smith, who had the file for a year at the time of Mark Shanahan’s story, allowed that,“Unfortunately, homicides do not get better with age.

    Authorities acknowledged that catching and convicting Mary’s killer would be difficult if not impossible. More than a dozen people associated with the case, including some of the early detectives, prosecutors, and witnesses have died .

    This is what I fear happening in Ayla’s case.

      This brings up the question. Is it better to wait in hopes that a case on more serious charges becomes more foolproof, or to go ahead and risk a lessor charge against one of the information withholders? Such an action could cause the break in the case that is being waited on.

      One thing is for sure. If no case is ever taken to court, there never will be a chance for justice. The guilty will just saunter through life legally unmolested.

      I believe Maine’s laws need revisited.

        I think they should have moved right away in Aylas case. I fear the longer they wait the less likely people are speak or remember. It is very sad.

        • mountain mama

          March 7, 2015 at 11:14 pm

          I think so too Karen. I think if one of the women had been arrested on lesser charges, she would’ve talked.

      Me too.

      I think there needs to be a big reward. I don’t know how to do that for Ayla. Maybe a reward specifically to get Ayla returned?

      It is a possible chance it could help. The second way is waiting for someone to have some other reason to talk.

      It is not over yet for finding Ayla. But I think something needs to be done. But what?

  11. Lee

    March 8, 2015 at 11:14 am

    I’m thinking over cases that have been concluded. Those I remember that have been successful had fairly quick action taken by the authorities. The waiting approach doesn’t seem like it generates success.

    In cases like Elaina Steinfurth, there was an arrest early on for a lessor crime. It worked.

    Look at the Hailey Dunn case. The authorities waited. Hailey’s body was found. We are all still waiting for justice.

    Can anyone recall a case where waiting years for evidence to be uncovered has produced justice? I am meaning without a witness coming forward. Is there a chance forensics would help after years have passed?

    It seems that pressure is what cracks these kind of cases. What else could turn someone into revealing the truth?

    “It seems that pressure is what cracks these kind of cases. What else could turn someone into revealing the truth?”

    I think so too. Sometimes you hear about a death in the family and then the truth comes out after years have gone by.
    Sometimes people slip up and tell someone something and the person informs LE of what they were told.
    Death bed confessions. That is about all that comes to mind at the moment.

    Karen, how about a person with knowledge developing enmity toward the one he/she has been heretofore protecting. Revenge motive to turn state’s witness? I confess to not seeing it in this case, unless Courtney is entirely innocent and gets religion!
