So very sorry. Unspeakable. I see he has another child.. Great! hope he is a better person/father this time round. Deborah Tillier June 30, 2016 at 2:34 pm - Reply I feel bad for all you people that don’t know the person you seem to hate. I have known him sine he was a kid. He has always been a caring loving guy. He was broken too over Lily’s death. Renee has a child too now. Life goes on. But there isn’t a day that the The Wolfenbarger family doesn’t think of and have a great love for her. People should pass judgement on a person unless they know all the facts. And the people involved. That’s gods job. Deborah Tillier June 30, 2016 at 2:52 pm - Reply I am sorry, Lauren has a child. My mind is off because I just lost my son and I’m not trying to get money from it. melodie eldridge April 13, 2017 at 8:20 am - Reply So bc Lauren has been blessed with a second child, no one should remember the first one? No one should be upset with the father who fought for custody only to leave her with an abuser? Multiple times? After the first black eye, the first raised voice, even, he KNEW that child wasn’t safe. Stop making excuses for child abuse and neglect. As far as knowing him your whole life, so what. People knew Ted Bundy. Thought he was the nicest guy ever. People knew both my parents. Didn’t do me a damned bit of good. They still abused me my entire life. T July 11, 2018 at 10:57 pm - Reply You are an ignorant person. Shame on you, absolute pile of trash. Someone September 5, 2018 at 11:30 am - Reply Wow what a shitty thing to say. I’m not trying to get money from it! Really? This mother lost her child because of the injustice of courts and a sick woman. That father knew Renee was incapable of caring for lily because her mother took her kids from her just days before. That father knew bruises were not from lily falling. So don’t even say the father didn’t have a hand in this. The mother is raising awareness on situations like this so they don’t happen to another child. Get a life Monica L Givens November 29, 2018 at 10:13 am - Reply You dumb, ignorant piece of trash! How stupid are you to think she profitting off Lily’s death? She is trying to raise awareness so this doesnt happen to other children! Monica L Givens November 29, 2018 at 10:18 am - Reply Also, guess what? I know Renee and she is the devil dressed in a pretty little bow. Everything about that woman is evil and if you are married to that then you know the truth and he STILL chose to leave his child in her care. I don’t know the guy, but I don’t need to…His ignorance speaks for itself. Furthermore, you KNOW when your child is being abused. It was happening in HIS home. He knew what was going on and allowed it to happen! Franca Priolo-Pasqualino October 23, 2013 at 11:47 pm - Reply I live in Canada, I saw your story on Dr. Phil. I cant imagine what you have had to go through and the pain you will forever feel. I just wanted to say that I am truly very sorry for the loss of your precious little girl. I hope that with each passing day it gets just a tiny bit better. May she continue to rest in Peace and may you continue on your journey with Peace. God bless you and your family. Brad Thornburgh October 24, 2013 at 12:56 am - Reply I understand the pain that you are going through! I lost my daughter 10 years ago when she was 7 years old. She was taken from me in a car accident. We learn how precious life is and how quickly life can turn. Our job as a parent is to protect our children. I felt like i failed. Even to this day I still beleive that I failed as a parent because I didn’t protect my child. And it’s very hard to convince yourself that it’s not my fault. I understand that it’s not my fault, but it’s hard to forgive ourselves when we believe that we can always protect our children. We are not supposed to out live our kids! I think it’s a great idea with what your doing for awareness on children’s abuse! My heart goes out to you! tamerah brown July 14, 2014 at 1:42 pm - Reply like im crying right now I really wish I got a chance to see a butiful smile like hers and don’t worry child heavens got a plane for u heavens got plane fro every person that passes away and to let yo no heaven gain a butiful angle that day god bless u and your family and I am praying for your whole family ): Karen Clairmont October 24, 2013 at 10:54 am - Reply Lauren, I saw your devastaing story on Dr. Phil the other day and this morning I have been reading all the articles surrounding Lily’s murder and the videos on youtube. I am so so sorry for the loss of your beloved baby girl and the circumstances of how it happened. In the pictures of the two of you together you can clearly see the love that you shared for one another and the bond that will never be broken even by death. Lily will always be a part of your soul until the day where you meet her again in Heaven. I cried when I saw how you are blaming yourself for not protecting her and the guilt that you feel. As parents we feel are job is to protect our children from harm and to always love and be there for them…however, life happens and life is not always warm and happy and there are things that are just out of our control, things that happen for no rhyme or reason. You were a victim of the court system that tries very hard to give equal rights and custody to both parents when they are not together…but when is the court system going to realize that that is not what is always best for the child. It is terrible when you suspect abuse but feel afraid to report it due to the fact that your child might actually be taken away from you… what kind of justice system is that???? And really how in the world could you have known that that woman would have done anything like that to your Lily? She is a mom too with children not that much older than Lily so as a fellow Mom you had some sort of trust in the back of your mind with her…Please do not blame yourself for what happened, it is not your fault. If there was any way you had even an inkling of her killing her you would have NEVER let her go there agan. You need to find peace now..that witch will never get out of prison and will never be around children again to be able to hurt them again and I am sure she will get hers in prison. Mothers do not take kindly to women who murder kids. Do not let those feelings of guilt eat you alive you must let them go and live your life…. Your baby girl would not have wanted to see her Mommy cry and fall apart. She is your angel in Heaven now watching over her Mommy and wanting her to be free and happy. I think your Justice for Lily foundation is a wonderful thing you are doing to help raise awareness and help others in similar situations. I am sure that you helped many just by seeing your story on the Dr. Phil show yesterday. May God bless you and your family and your sweet Lily. jinette concepcion October 24, 2013 at 4:10 pm - Reply Im going thur the same problem with my child I don’t know what to do every weekend she comes with marks in her body. Once she came with a black n blue eye my daughter scream not wanting to go with her father specially when his girlfriend and her daughter are around I’m scared one of this day my daughter will end up dead. I have call cps all they said she have a bed and food that’s all she need. My daughter have even come home with her feet cut all the father say if u don’t like it take it to court but the court never help I have showed them photos of all her cuts and Bruce’s and it like they want my daughter to die I’m scared for my daughter well being Tracey Dyson November 20, 2013 at 7:36 pm - Reply I think it’s terrible that this may be happening to your daughter. Maybe you can contact Dr Phil by sending photos and a letter telling him that you’re scared your daughter will end up like poor Lily Fernaux? Maybe contact Lauren Fernaux on Facebook as they are raising money to try to stop the deaths of innocent children? Keep fighting for your daughter xx Kimberly November 21, 2013 at 12:11 pm - Reply Jinette concepcion…did you find any help with your daughter? Saga Lloyd January 4, 2014 at 4:04 pm - Reply How old are your girl? I don’t know, but i believe that your child gets abused! Ask her how she get the scars and why she doesn’t want to go to her father! You need to help her NOW! Name (required) June 4, 2014 at 7:35 pm - Reply I just watched a YouTube video about Lilly’s story, and I am so deeply sorry. I will be sure to pray for you, Lauren and your family tonight. Michaela June 17, 2014 at 6:15 pm - Reply I am 13 years old. My 3 year old sister has been getting scratches and bruises on her arms.my mom is a teacher and I go to school, but Kelly gets dropped of at my dads house (mom and dad are divorced). We don’t know what is going on, because we are never around. she doesn’t go during the summer. I tell mom what I think has been going on when I go and pick her up from dads house. I hope Kelly tells s what happens. We will try to go and find help and go to a doctor. May Lauren have peace and Lily rest in peace. Carrie Evans July 13, 2014 at 4:11 am - Reply Lauren, you Sweet Mom, I’m so terribly sorry for your loss. You have such a great spirit about you and I hope you are able to find some peace. I don’t know what your religious affiliations are and I know that this is going to sound weird but if you have any missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints around your area, they can give you a priesthood blessing for peace and comfort. I have never experienced the pain that you are going through but I have had these blessings and they confirm the love of your Heavenly Father to you and your sweet baby, Lily. They (there will be two) will place their hands on your head and say a prayer. The Lord speaks through these men. They will tell you what the Lord wants you to know. If you don’t feel anything, no loss, right? If you aren’t comfortable calling on the missionaries for a blessing, any priesthood holder in this church can give you one and would be honored to do so. Again, I am so sorry about this situation for you and my heart aches for you. I will be praying for you! I hope you can get some peace. Love to you and yours. You’ve got a lot of people that care about your situation and you as a person. We’ll be waiting for good news from you! Carrie Rasha S December 4, 2014 at 12:13 pm - Reply Found your story on youtube, couldnt help but check this website out. I am in so much tears. 🙁 Christie November 27, 2015 at 9:13 pm - Reply A gorgeous baby girl, with so much love in her eyes. Your bond reminds me of my days with my mum. Lily’s story is spreading around the world, thank you for bringing this to the front of peoples minds. Never feel you could have done more to protect your Lily, having been passed around myself I know exactly why you had to do it. Your girl will forever be with you now, a wonderful mum, I hope you have found the strength to carry on together in spirit x Brenda Warhop August 7, 2018 at 6:38 pm - Reply This made me sad but angry too to think what that woman might have did to her before she died. I haven’t heard the whole story or any details about what killed your little girl but I hope that devil gets hers in jail too. That must have been a sorry father to marry a woman like that. The only good thing is your little girl is in God’s safe hands. God bless U & I’m so sorry.
