Madeleine McCann: twins Sean and Amelie receive birthday presents from Maddie.

....................................
...................................

Sean and Amelie McCann, twin siblings of Maddie, who were just two years and three months when Maddie disappeared, will be five years old tomorrow, February 2nd. They celebrated their birthday with a party at the weekend and according to The Sun:

"MADDIE McCann's sister and brother celebrated their fifth birthday with a party yesterday and a present from their missing sibling.

Parents Kate and Gerry held the special bash for twins Sean and Amelie.

They always buy the pair a gift from their missing sister for Christmas and birthdays."

Do the twins think these presents actually come from Maddie? If so, I wonder what they imagine is the method by which these presents reach them.

In January 2008, according to a report in The Metro, Sean and Amelie were playing a game in which they endeavoured to find "the monster who took Maddie."

"The brother and sister of missing Madeleine McCann cope with their loss by playing a game called 'Find the monster that took Maddie', it was claimed on Sunday.

The game was described by leading world sex crimes expert Ray Wyre after he met parents Kate and Gerry McCann.

Twins Sean and Amelie, two, were helping to give their parents the strength to carry on, he added.

The parents told him they were together recently when the twins rushed into the room shouting.

He added: 'They said they were going to go and find the monster that took Maddie. Then they dashed off to play the game. It's a sad story, but it is healthy that Madeleine remains a real presence in their lives.'"

Do the twins still believe that a "monster," took Maddie? If so, they must also believe that this monster has some very kind and compassionate qualities if he allows Maddie to choose and send them presents. Maybe when they're older, they'll suggest that Kate and Gerry take note of the postmarks on the packages and alert the police.

In November 2009, the twins were ready to fight the man who abducted their sister. "We will fight the man who took our sister Maddie." The Sun

"Gerry told Sky News the twins - just 18 months old when Madeleine went missing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007 - want to find who took her and punish them.

He said: "They talk about her more than Kate and I do - it's incredible. Now they are saying, 'She's been taken, when we find who took her, we'll fight them'"

One day these twins will discover more and more about the truth. About Auntie Jane's fabrications. About being left in a room all on their own when Madeleine was snatched (according to their Mum and Dad anyway). About all the Fund money going to charlatans like Francisco Marco and Kevin Halligen. I hope their parents have good answers ready.

The twins are being groomed and this is so sad...We, as bloggers. are sitting back and can only look with despair at what is unfolding before us. Where are SS where is Kates mother?..lighting lanterns when she should be with her grandchildren and seeing what the hell is going on in Rothley Manor.

You really do have to wonder just how much truth is in some of these stories spouted for the press.

I remember watching their documentary with Kate painting with the twins. She painted the words Sean and Amelie and asked them who else's name she should paint she had to practically tell the twins Madeleine's name. Those poor little mites must be having nightmares.

It was also reported, during the libel hearing, the twins wanted to return to PDL - can you really believe that?

The twins are being used the same as everyone else is being used IMHO.

We are to believe they think Madeleine was taken by a monster, that they want to go and get the bad monster that took Madeleine. They want to return to PDL (to get the monster perhaps) but that Madeleine sends them birthday and christmas presents. Does this mean a "monster" is looking after Madeleine and allowing her to send presents to her siblings. So why should they want to go and get the monster that took Madeleine.

It doesn't make a lot of sense does it. Just as nothing in this sorry saga makes a lot of sense.

The worrying thing is that this is two NHS doctors we are talking about - now that's scary.

Hi Feather, I sometimes think we are watching one of those old Bette Davis movies. Many times I have pinched myself and said NO...THIS IS...really happening.

I never thought in my life time I would see such a circus and hope never to again...The McCanns will go down in History...but under what heading is yet to be written.

The Sun is the only newspaper to publish this story about the birthday present from Madeleine... doesn't it seem strange ? Imo they tend to embroider about this case to keep interesting their readers ; it is a gold mine for tabloids like those novels serialized for the press in the 19e century

What About Me? Coping With the Abduction of a Brother or Sister

U.S. Department Of Justice - Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

Written by siblings of children who have been abducted, this guide contains information to help and support children of all ages when their brother or sister is kidnapped.

The guide provides ideas on what children can expect in terms of the feelings they may experience, the events that may occur from day to day, and the things they can do to help themselves feel better.

Written in child-friendly language, it is divided into such sections as: home, family, law enforcement, the media, school and work, and holidays and anniversaries. In addition, the guide contains activity pages for children of all ages, including those who are too young to read.

THE MEDIA - THE “CLING-ONS”

If your family has received media attention as a result of your sibling’s abduction, your family may experience “celebrity” status in the eyes of many people, some of whom we refer to as “cling-ons.”

These are complete strangers who feel as if they know you because they recognize you from TV or newspapers. They may stake out your house or try to talk to you when your parents are not around. They may seem weird or wacky, and you may not want to have anything to do with them. Talk to your parents about these people. Trust your instincts. If you don’t want to talk to them, tell them. If they don’t get the message, you or your parents may need to be blunt.

You need to work on your writing skills. You started with some compelling facts but destroyed them with run-on sentences, rambling repitition and an over abundance of speculation. Oh, and you repeated things and you repeated things. Not to mention, all the repeating. Repeating is repeating and repeating is repeating the monster let's Madeline send gifts. Brown bear. Stop repeating, edit your repititions or have someone else edit your repititious writings. Also repitition is annoying. Repitition
