Sharon you have always been a good person and wonderful mother.
There are times in our lives we must stand for what is right. OUR child was taken for no other reason than my jealous ex-wife telling CPS lies because she is a narcissist, the rest was about funding and social workers who love playing God and to satisfy their funding demands. The way I see it you have demonstrated tolerance beyond what parents were ever intended to put up with.
You have been asked to never contact your child that you would have given your life for,without question. I know you can show everyone exactly how they manipulated evidence, falsified documents, committed perjury and how everyone in the court is in on it. The judge in our case was well aware that they were using the criminal record of another William Burns and that we did not “kidnap” Donnelly in any way! They stole him from us, we stole him BACK! They NEVER HAD ANY SIGNED COURT ORDERS, NO SIGNATURE, NO CUSTODY! THEIR “MINUTE ORDERS” WERE NOT VALID! But we took the deal so we could get out of jail as soon as possible. They knew setting our bail at a half a million dollars would make it nearly impossible to fight our case out of jail and it would have taken a year or more to get that case to trial. We took the deal to keep fighting for our son, our LOVE CHILD. My lawyer offered us a deal if we agreed to say certain things which appeared to be admitting guilt in the court room, he promised that the judge would reinstate reunification. THAT DID NOT HAPPEN! None of this is your fault sweetie, you didn’t DO ANYTHING but stand up for what is right AND JUST which is a whole lot more than I can say for other people. You stood by me during that time and didn’t let me go down alone and I am so proud of you for that! You are my hero too. To say that we are “kidnappers” is a bunch or horseshit, people should at least talk to us and look at our evidence before passing judgement.
We did everything the court asked. They knew we were not guilty and still took our child. No one has questioned the fact that they only terminated our rights to one child out of 6. Even though we both had other children under 18. Common sense would tell you if we are not good enough parents for one child how can we be good enough parents for 5 more. I have never been arrested for drugs and yet the attorney for you stated I have a great big drug arrest history. No, never even one time did have drug charges against me. Everyone that looks at our case cannot understand why this happened to us.
So it is very understandable why you can not give up. That is a very commendable thing you do. Even though all this has happened to us as a family you still continue to fight for as many families as you possibly can. I would not want to be married to anyone less.
If you know for a fact (you have personally seen it, heard it or the child has told you) that a child is being abused, neglected (to the point of inhumanity), molested, sexually exploited, being battered, beaten, tortured,, starved, locked in closets, burned with cigarettes, or a very young child (5 and under) is being left alone for any amount of time, etc.
CALL THE POLICE!
Child "Protective" Services is NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD. FOSTER CARE IS A DANGEROUS PLACE AND FAR FAR TOO MANY CHILDREN BEAR EXTRAORDINARY CONDITIONS IN FOSTER CARE. HURTING A CHILD IS JUST WRONG AND HAS LASTING AFFECTS ON THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T CARE. OTHERS CARE MORE ABOUT CHILDREN THAN THEY DO THEIR OWN LIVES. HOW CAN PEOPLE BE SO DIFFERENT? WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO EVIL?
