It's very unfortunate when the system that is supposed to be there for the children just isn't there.
In my case, I have high regard for the CAS in my area. She remained neutral in the situation and did not ask leading questions, but let my son tell his story of the abuse that occurred at the hand of my ex's CL spouse. It was the same story he gave the police on his video statement when he was returned from his visit with horrifying bruises, and again when we first met with the crown attorney.
He's my brave little boy, because his story made my heart hurt more than I could have ever imagined, and was so detailed that you couldn't stop yourself from the incident replaying in your mind frame by frame.
