I have been hearing as well as reading about the 13 children who were found last Sunday in the Perris house of horrors in California. Tonight the news story was actually uplifting. They ask to be kept together and I guess they will go next week to a foster home. All 13. They were astonished by the amount of help they were getting such as clothes and such. The story also said that all of the children demenished mental copacity. It is so sad but, I am glad they are going to be together and are getting help. The authorities said that no family members called to inquire about the children. I hope they fare well and can continue to stay together.

I'm not urprised that their mental capacity is not what it should be, those conditions would drive anyone mad.

It is difficult to have a normal mental capacity after all the years of captivity. I hope the foster home will be checked as they have special needs.

They will improve but I doubt they will ever be 100%.

Good to hear they will be getting the help they need - and that they will get to stay together. That's sad about their mental capacity . . . but I hope they will get to live a much better life from here on out!

That is wonderful so many people have stepped in to help them. I am amazed they were all able to go to the same foster home. That will be good for them to not have to deal with being split up after all they have been through.

I'm sorry I didn't know the story of the Turpin Children. What happened to the 13 children? Are they kidnapped?

They were tortured and held captive by their own parents. Chained to furniture.

@celticeagle What?! They are so evil. How they can do that to their own kids. Those 13 children are they all siblings same parents?

That's very sad indeed. It's better to keep track of these children as they are most abused.

Yes, they are saying that they may never have normal lives. Be able to live on their own. Very sad.

Poor nutrition over the long term certainly can cause mental abilities to be harmed.
