      1. It seems to me more and more people are coming to this site, and more and more of those are the so-called-professionals-involved-in-court as Karen’s good work is being recognised in the law courts more and more. So, therefore, it’s not just “us”, alienated, that are coming, but other’s who are researching Karen as well. DareIsayit, and yes I do, but I hope these people include cafcass, social services, lawyers, and even judges…..

        Well, we can hope anyway
