    God will take care of the demons that dwell on Earth. I fled to protect my three kids from a “pedophile”!! Know that God is watching over Seth and Dawson and satin will only let you get so far and you will pay the price to God for he alone is all the children will need to protect them from a tyrent like you. It’s in God’s hands now! I love you guys and I will never leave your hearts! God be with you and bless you from this moment on! Pray for them please!
