Low-Income [high education] Mothers Without Custody:

Who Are They and Where Are Their Children?*

As a focus of research, the non-custodial “low- income” [ high education]mother, particularly the mother who has received Aid to Families of Dependent Children, (AFDC) has been virtually ignored. Yet, she is central to many fields of study-foster care, child support enforcement, child maltreatment, and single parents. This article re-ports on 8 re-spondents from a co-hort of 518, urban, AFDC mothers who lost custody of all children during the 17 months following their se-lection in-to t/he study sample.

Literature Review

To gather information about low-income, noncustodial mothers, we reviewed five areas of study, all of which have potential for focusing on issues of custody and low-income families. Little information was found. The noncustodial mother literature, as noted above, has almost exdusively focused on the middle-income mother without custody. The recent foster care literature (e.g., Fanshel, 1976; Rzepnicki, 1987) does not, to the best of our knowledge, focus on the needs of noncustodial mothers as differentiated from those of noncustodial fathers or twoparent families.

Moreover, it does not address situations where parents have children living in any of a variety of informal arrangements, i.e., with relatives, spouses, etc. The child support enforcement literature (e.g., Cassety, 1984) predominantly focuses on noncustodial parents whose children are recipients of Aid to Families of Dependent Children (AFDC). However, because the vast majority of AFDC caretakers are single parent mothers, the typical child support enforcement study focuses on noncustodial fathers. The child maltreatment literature (e.g., Parke & Collmer, 1975; Polansky, Hally, & Polansky, 1975; Wolfe, 1985), is peripherally related to custody issues in that some maltreating parents lose custody of one or more children.

It does not, to the best of our knowledge, address noncustodial mothers separate and apart from parents who maintain custody, or parents who lose custody of some but not all of their children. In fact, most studies do not mention whether respondents have lost custody of any children. After analyzing our data and seeing the prevalence of alcohol and drug abuse among these mothers, we reviewed that body Low-Income Mothers Without Custody of literature, too. Loss of child custody as an outcome of drug addition was mentioned in one study (Nurco, Wegner, & Stephenson, 1982); the study reported that children were more likely to be removed from their parent(s) because of neglect rather than abuse.

Based on these reviews, there seems to be no one area of inquiry that daims these mothers as their own.  Consequently, we know little about them.

Yet, this little known population may be a fast-growing one for three reasons: (a) the increase in size of the population of single parent, female-headed families with children, many of whom are overburdened with financial and emotional problems; (b) the ever-increasing range of culturally sanctioned roles for women; and (c) the increased attention to and reporting of child maltreatment. Increases in this population have particular import for child welfare, namely an increase in the number of children at high risk for child maltreatment.

Theory (Finkelhor, 1985) as well as empirical findings (Finkelhor, 1980) suggest that children who live away from their natural mothers for periods of time may be at higher risk for sexual abuse than children who always live with their mothers. Studies of child maltreatment in formal, licensed foster care suggest that children living in such homes may be at higher risk for all types of maltreatment than the average child in the population-at-large (Bolton, Laner, & Gai, 1980).

And, if the maltreatment rate is high in licensed foster care-homes that are monitored, even if only on a periodic basis-one can only imagine how high the rate of maltreatment must be for informal care arrangements, i.e., custody arrangements with friends, neighbors, relatives, etc., situations that are not likely to be licensed and if monitored, not very dosely. For most middle-income mothers, concern about maltreatment is not an issue. Greif and Pabst’s survey (1988) of such mothers reveals that more than 90% of their children were living with their fathers.

Conceptual Framework-Characteristics of the Mother Without Custody Lacking specific theory or findings with regard to low-income, noncustodial mothers, we decided to use Belsky’s mo-d-e-l  of t/he de-ter-min-an-t-s of pa-r-en-t-ing, “o-ne de-r-i-v-e-d f-r-om re-se-ar-ch on t/he et-i-o-lo-g-y of ch-i-l-d ab-use and n-eglect” (Belsky, 1984, p. 83), as we-l-l a-s v-ar-i-ous h-y-p-o-t/he-se-s and fin-d-i-n-g-s f-ro-m t/he ch-i-l-d mal-treat-men-t and p-s-y-chi-atric li-t-er-a-t-u-re to i-d-ent-if-y a-re-as f-or st-u-d-y.

Rationale – mental  health  problems

 The   Belsky  model  (1984)   p-o-s-i-t-s  “t/hre-e   gen-e-r-al   sour-ce-s   of   i-n-fl-u-en-c-e   on  par-en-t-al   fun-ct-ion-i-ng:

(a)  t/he   pa-re-nt-s’   o-n-t-o-genic   origins  and   per-son-al   p-sy-cho-logi-c-al   resources,

(b)  t/he   chi-l-d-‘s   character-i-s-t-i-c-s   of   in-di-vi-d-u-al-i-t-y,   and

(c)  co-n-t-e-x-t-u-al    s-o-ur-c-e-s –   of-    s-t-r-e-s-s     and   s-u-p-p-ort”    (p. 83).

Of    these    t/hree   sour-ce-s,    par-en-t    psy-chol-og-i-c-al     re-so-ur-c-es     r-e  id-ent-if-i-e-d    as     t/he     m-o-s-t   in-fl-u-e-n-t-i-a l     “no-t   si-mp-l-y    fo- r    t/he-i-r    d-i-re-ct    e-f-fe-ct    o-n    par-e-n-t-al     u-n-ct-i-o-n-i-n-g    b-u-t     al-so    be-cau-se    o-f    t/he    ro-le   t /he/y     un-do-ub-t-e-d-l-y     p-l-a-y    i-n    re-c-r-u-i-t-i-n-g    co-n-t-ex-t-u-al    sup-p-ort”   (p. 91).  

On  t /he   bas-i-s   of   Belsky’s   position  (1984)  regarding    the  salience   of   parental   psychological  resources  as  well  as  the  large  and  con-s-is–t-e-nt   body   of  findings   from  the   psychiatric   literature  which   reveal   that   ma-t-e-r-n-al    m-en-t-al    health    problems   (e.g., Colletta,  1983;  Longfellow, Zelkowitz, & Saunders, 1981; Susman, Trickett, Iannotti, Hollenbeck, & Zahn-Wexler, 1985; Weissman, Paykel, & Klerman, 1972)    have   a    particularly  adverse  affect  on  parenting    behaviors,   we   decided   to   ex-a-mi-n-e   mo-t/he/r’s   his/to/r/y   of  me/n/t/al  he-a-l-t-h   pro-b-l-e-m-s.

It seemed reasonable to surmise that the prevalence of mental health problems might be highest among mothers without custody. Moreover, on the basis of findings which show that neglectful mothers are more likely to have mental health problems than abusive or nonmaltreating mothers (Friedrich, Tyler, & Clark, 1985; Zuravin, 1988), we reasoned that more neglectful than abusive or control mothers might be noncustodial. Rationale-future childbearing plans The clinical impression of many caseworkers is that mothers who are separated from all of their children are at high risk for Low-Income Mothers Without Custody having another child. On the basis of information about the contracepting patterns of maltreating mothers alone (Zuravin, 1987), this impression seems to be a reasonable one.

     —     Both abusive and neglectful mothers are likely to use contraceptives less adequately and effectively than comparable control mothers.

     —     In addition, regardless of the problems non-custodial mothers had with their children, it is likely that these children were meeting some specific need-a need that the mother may well try to fulfill by having another child.

Thus, we reasoned that the non-custodial mothers may [ or may not ] be more likely to want to conceive another child than custodial mothers.

In summary, this presentation of information about [ only ]  eight (8) low-income [ high education], single mothers who do not have daily care and custody of any of their children,

     —     represents a beginning attempt to describe low-income [ high education], non-custodial mothers,         particularly those who once received AFDC.

While no claim is being made that these eight mothers are representative of non-custodial, low-income [and/or ] high education mothers, it is our hope that this presentation [ specifically not ‘peer-reviewed’ scientific, statistically (in)significant, biased and based report or real study or experiment] will help to

     (a)      stimulate interest in this under-studied population group,

     (b)      generate questions and hypotheses for future study, and

     (c)      provide the social work practitioner with a beginning description of this population.

Specific objectives are:

     (a)      to determine the composition of the noncustodial mother group by maltreatment status,

     (b)      to identify the range of situations in which the children of these mothers live,

     (c)      to characterize the “mental health problems,” [ or unique personality and character traits open to reasonably expansive interpretation across a variety of ‘spectrums’ or ‘lights’] as well as  [ equal to ] the future ‘child-bearing plan[t]s’ of these mothers.

Methodology

Information for this exploratory, descriptive study of  eight [ 8 ]  low-income/ [ or high education], non-custodial mothers and their children comes from,

     —     an extensive set of interview and case record data (Zuravin & Taylor, 1987) on

     —     518 individuals,

     —     low-income, 

     —     urban,

     —     single

     —     parent

     —     mothers.

The original purpose of this data set was to identify ‘personal,’ ‘social,’ and ‘contextual’ factors that increase the low-income child’s risk of being physically abused and/or neglected. Methodological information pertinent to the construction of the data set is detailed in the final report to the funder (Zuravin & Taylor, 1987) and various papers (e.g., Zuravin, 1987; Zuravin, 1988).

Below is a summary of information about the 518 respondents and a description of measures pertinent to the above study objectives.

Study participants

The eight women who are described in this paper come from a group of 518 women  [ (wo) man ] who were interviewed in their homes by one of ten trained interviewers sometime during the period ” 9/ 1/84  to  6/30/85.”

These 518 women had five (5) [ one circumstantial ]   characteristic(s) in common.

During the study sampling month, January 1984, all were:

     (a)      residents of Baltimore, Maryland,

     (b)      single parents (defined as not being legally married),

     (c)      recipients of financial assistance from the Aid to families of Dependent Children program, (d) had custody of and provided daily care for at least one natural child, and

     (e)      had at least one natural child 12 years of age or younger even if care and custody of the child was no longer the mother’s responsibility.

The 518 were purposely selected to differ relative to

     —     how adequately they were known to care for their natural children;

     –119 respondents were known to Baltimore City Department of Social Services (BCDSS), Division of Child Protective Services for personally neglecting their children,

     —     118 were known to BCDSS for having one or more physically abused children, and

     —     281 were not known to BCDSS for having any neglected, physically abused, or sexually abused children.

—     The 237 maltreating respondents were selected from a specially constructed sampling frame prepared from the co-hort of 1,744 families who were receiving child “protective” services during the sampling month.

     —     The 281 control group respondents were selected from a specially constructed sampling frame prepared from the co-hort of 37,158 families who were,

     —     receiving AFDC,

     —      but not child protective services during the sampling month.

Measures Information pertinent to objective a-specific custody arrangements for children of the eight women-was obtained during the personal interview.

     —     Each respondent was asked to identify, by name, age, and relationship, to he/r each member of h/er household.

     –     During a comprehensive history of each of the mother’s livebirths, the

     —     interviewer [ doctor/nurse/pediatrician/ physician’s assistant/hospital social worker or administrator/cps/SS caseworker regularly tipped off by the same “interviewer” on duty or manager or director ],  

     —     “checked” the household roster, ” Low-Income Mothers Without Custody,” to

     —       see if the child in question [ ? ]  was currently living with the respondent.

     —     If the child was not among the household members, the interviewer asked,

     —     “Where is she/he living now?”

[ Every ] Where possible, information from the interview was corroborated and supplemented by information from the child protective service (CPS) “case record.”

Information pertinent to objective b-mental health problems and childbearing plans-

     —     was obtained during the personal interview, and, where possible, 

     —     possible [ pre-determined/ profiled/pre-selection bias ]  corroborated with information from the case record.

Given the pre valence of depression and substance abuse problems among the population of urban, low-income, young women (Robins, Helzer, Croughan, & Ratcliffe, 1981),  information was “obtained” [ intentionally and knowingly “coached” to fathers to falsely and maliciously report,  or presumed without actual research, without investigation, probable cause, reliability, or reasonable suspicion based on specific, relevant, articulable evidence that that individual mother . . . ] —

     —     about current and past “problems with depression, alcohol abuse, and drug abuse.”

     —     The Beck Depression Inventory (Beck, 1970) was used to assess severity of depressive symptoms,

     —      on the day of the interview, and

     —     a variety of questions from the Diagnostic Interview Schedule (Robins, Helzer, et al., 1981)

     —     were used to “obtain” [ guess to “substantiate” ] information about lifetime incidence of [ falsely reported or maliciously alleged with intent to prosecute and knowingly cause harm and inflict emotional distress, among other crimes and violations ] “depression as well as alcohol and drug problems. Relevant to the women’s future plans with respect to parenting,” two (2)  types of information were gathered:

     (a)      expectations for future pregnancies and family planning strategies around the time of the interview, and

     (b)     plans for assuming daily care and custody of their children.

To obtain information about future pregnancies and family planning strategies, respondents were asked a series of relevant questions taken from the National Survey of Family Growth, Cycle 3 (National Center for Health Statistics, 1982).

     —     Information about [ CPS and irresponsible father’s collusive ] plans,

     —     for return of children’s  . . . “daily care and custody” . . . ” to the mothers” . . .  was “obtained,”

     —     where possible, from the child protective service case record narratives.

     —      Data analysis Because of the small size of the group of women who became noncustodial during the period from sampling to interview, formal statistical comparisons of this group with relevant groups of women who did not lose custody are “not warranted.”

Findings from such analyses would be seriously compromised by statistical conclusion validity problems (Cook & Campbell, 1979).

However, to give the reader a feel for how these women may differ from the other groups of women included in the study,

     —     we present comparable data “on all measures for the abusive (n = 116), neglectful (n = 113), and control (n = 281) mothers who had custody of at least one child on the day they were ‘interviewed’ for the study [ or unethical, uninformed, non-‘consented’  social experiment  or systematic, inhumate re’trauma’tization] .

Findings

Objective 1:

To determine the composition of the noncustodial mother group by maltreatment status,

The eight women who are the subjects of this paper became noncustodial sometime during the period 2/1/84 and the day they were interviewed, 7 to 17 months later.

All eight are from the two maltreatment samples. As predicted, the majority, six of the eight (75%), are from the neglect sample.

Objective 2:

To identify the range of situations in which the children of study mothers live Inspection of data on the custodians of the 29 children of the noncustodial mothers (see Table 1)

 —shows that the majority were not in formal. foster care on the day their mother was interviewed.

The largest proportion, 20 of 29, were with a relative.

The remaining

      —nine were in formal foster care,

     –  -seven in family care and two in group care.

Of the 20 children who were with a relative,

     –seven were with their father and

     –13 were with either a maternal or paternal relative.

Examining the identity of children’s custodians by mother’s former marital status suggests, as might be expected, that once-married mothers are more likely to have children who live with their fathers than mothers who were never married.

The two mothers who were married have children living with their father (the man to whom the mother was married), whereas only one of the six never married mothers has children living with their father.

Although highly detailed information on the transfer of daily care and custody for all 29 children is not available from the child protection case records, what is available leads to three conclusions:

(a) Child protective service intervention led to the transfers of custody.   It is not likely that any of these mothers would have voluntarily on her own sought to make suitable daily care and custody arrangements for any of their children. In many instances, it was necessary to involve juvenile court in the custody transfer. 

 

(b) Caseworkers tended to be extremely conservative about transfers of custody. A concerted effort was made to keep the children with their mother.

Most families received an extensive array of supportive services (i.e., day care, parent aide service, mental health services, parenting programs etc.), none of which they were able to effectively use, prior to removal of all the children.

(c) Every effort was made to keep the children out of formal foster home or group home care by making it a priority to place them with relatives.

*The number of mothers sums to more than eight because some of the mothers have children in more than one type of placement.

Objective 3:

To characterize the mental health problems as well as the future childbearing of low-income mothers without custody of their children Demographic description.

   Information about six demographic characteristics (displayed in Table 2) suggests that the eight noncustodial mothers may differ not only from the average control mother but also the average neglectful and abusive mother.

The mean age of the noncustodial mothers during the sampling month (1/84) was 26.1 years, younger than either the average neglectful or average abusive mother.

Four respondents were black and four were white, suggesting that white mothers may be over-represented among noncustodial mothers compared to the groups of abusive, neglectful, and control mothers.

        –Two (25%) of the mothers had been employed,

     –and two had been married,

     –quite a few less than the other three groups.

They lagged behind the other three groups of mothers relative to educational achievement.

The average number of years of education per mother is 9.1; not one of the eight had graduated from high school.

And finally, the eight mothers had given birth to 29 children, all of whom were still alive at the time of the study.

The number of children per mother ranged from one to seven with the average being 3.6.

Naturally, these mothers also differ from the middle-class, white mothers studied by others in that they

     –had less education,

     –were less likely to have ever been employed,

     –were less likely to have ever been married, and

     –had more children.

Also of interest is that the eight mothers all lost custody involuntarily as compared with many of the middle class mothers who, in part, as a response to the women’s movement, relinquished custody voluntarily (Greif & Pabst, 1988).

     —     least from custodial neglectful mothers,

     —      suggesting that perhaps some of the custodial neglectful mothers may be at high risk for losing custody of their children.

All–

     —     eight (8) of the custodial mothers (100%) reported problems with at least one of three 

     —     “mental health problems”

     —     -depression, alcohol, and/or drug usage.

                                  —     at least overnight  [ for at least the birth delivery in hospital ],

                          —     and two (2)

                                 —      had received help

                                         —     from a “mental health professional.”

      —     Comparison of the non-custodial mothers with the three (3)  groups of custodial mothers,

                            —     Drinking and drug problems.

          —     It is with respect to these two (2) problems that the non-custodial mothers differ the most

                   —     from the remaining “abusive and neglectful mothers.”

                         —     “Having periods

         —     of drinking for a couple of days and [ then ] not,

                                                   —     11% of the neglectful,  and

                                                 —     Three of the five (60%) women with drinking problems and

                                                —     both of the women [ (wo) man }  

                                                        —     with drug problems

                                                                —    had received some sort of “formal” help “from a mental health professional.”

Unfortunately, this help seemed to have little impact on their serious substance abuse problems. Future childbearing plans.

Just as the non-custodial mothers differed from the custodial mothers with respect to alcohol and drug problems, they also differed with respect to their future childbearing plans.

     —     Despite the many serious [ series of ?} child,

           —     care problems experienced by these women and the very high

                    —     incidence of behavioral, physical, and emotional problems characteristic of their children, all six of the women who were not sterile (either because of tubal ligation or hysterectomy) wanted to have at least one more child.

All six (6) answered “yes” to the question, “Looking to the future, do you intend to have another baby at some time” (National Center for Health Statistics, 1982).

     –Five wanted one more child and

     –one wanted two more children.

So, while

     –100% of the noncustodial mothers who could have another child wanted another child,

     –only 43% of the neglectful (n = 67),

    –54% of the abusive (n = 59), and

     –57% of the control mothers (n = 202) wanted another child.

     –And, not only did the six women want more children, all six had a steady boyfriend and

     –all except one were trying to get pregnant by that boyfriend during the two week period prior to the interview.

In response to the question, “Did you use any method of birth control the last time you had intercourse?” (National Center for Health Statistics, 1982)

     –all five answered “no.”

The descriptive statistics provide some information about these eight low-income, noncustodial mothers; however, due to the size of the study group, the picture is an abbreviated one.

To fill in this picture, we dose with a detailed description of ‘Roberta,’ a mother who is’ typical’ of the eight women who form the basis of this study.

The story of Roberta.

Roberta is a 32-year-old, never-married, mother of three children.

All three are living with relatives:

     –John, age 14, and Mary, age 12, live with one family while Brenda, age 3, lives with another.

Roberta was first reported to child protective services during 1975 for severe neglect of John and Mary.

Since the time of this report, daily care and custody of these two children has been provided by their maternal aunt.

During 1982, Roberta was reported to child protective services for failure to make appropriate child care arrangements for Brenda, a complaint very similar to the one that had lost her custody of John and Mary.

Several days prior to the complaint, she had been found guilty of shoplifting and required to serve 9 days in city jail.

Rather than make appropriate arrangements for the care of Brenda (two years old at the time), she left Brenda with her current boyfriend, Bobby, a known heroin addict.

Bobby contacted a friend of Roberta’s who not only came and got Brenda but reported the problem to child protective services.

Problems with depression, drinking, and drugs have repeatedly punctuated Roberta’s life. She was positive for all three depression measures:

(a) depressed after the birth of each of her three children even though the first two were planned conceptions,

(b) felt sad, blue, and depressed for at least two consecutive weeks during the six months preceding the interview, and

(c) moderately depressed on the day of the interview, according to her Beck Depression Inventory score. And, as if the problems with depression were not enough, Roberta also had long-standing  Welfare ing problems with substance abuse.

As recent as six months prior to the interview she had periods of drinking for a couple of days or more without sobering up and of “shooting herself with heroin.”

The case record narratives describe heroin and alcohol addiction problems dating back as far as 1975-the year when she was first reported for child neglect.

Despite the long-standing mental health problems, the repeated encounters with child protective services for child neglect, and the loss of custody of all her children, Roberta not only planned to have two more children before she reached 35, she was working on getting pregnant.

At last intercourse (the night before the interview), neither she nor Bobby had used any method of birth control.

During the year preceding the interview, they used birth control about half the time.

Discussion

The data describe these mothers as having more problems than their counterparts either in the low-income [high education] population (maltreators and controls) or in the “non-custodial” mother literature.

 

 

           The questions we sought . . .

 . . .answers . . . to . . .

 . . .and their findings–

. . .point

 . . .in many . . .

 . . .directions.

1. Overrepresentation of neglect– as opposed to abuse– among the eight non-custodial mother situations directs attention to the adequacy of services for intact neglectful families.

Even though neglectful mothers may suffer more frequently from mental health problems (Freidrich, Tyler, et al., 1985; Zuravin, 1988), it is important to pose the question-are we providing sufficient services, soon enough to these families?

Conceivably, neglectful situations do not receive services until the mother’s mental health problems have deteriorated to the point where they are virtually ‘intractable.’

According to Wolock and Horowitz (1984), “in spite of data showing that neglect is no less severe than physical abuse, there is some evidence that preoccupation with abuse [ or sexual assault, misconduct, or abuse of a child] may have led the protective service worker to view neglect as being of lesser severity, and, in the face of unmanageably high caseloads, to be more likely to screen out neglect cases” (p. 537) (also, see Selinske, 1984).

2.      The fact that many of their children are not in formal foster care raises the question of who is caring for these children. Low-Income Mothers Without Custody Are they in adequate placements with relatives or are they as much at risk for maltreatment as they were when living with their mothers?

This takes us back to one of the possible adverse consequences, mentioned earlier in the paper, of an increase in the population of low-income, noncustodial mothers.

We may be seeing a growing number of unmonitored, unattached children, ones that are shuffled from place to place after having been maltreated by their mothers.

Who know what happens to children, who, for example,

      –go with one relative, do not fit in there, and then move on to another and another informal placement.

     –More than two-thirds of this group of 29 children could be in this situation.

Are these children at high risk for ‘maltreatment ?’

Do these children constitute a large proportion of a rather newly recognized American social problem,

     –“runaway children and teenagers?” ? ? ?

3.      Most troubling of the facts learned about these eight mothers is that

     –the six who have not been sterilized want and are trying to have more children.

     –While middle class mothers have also started families again after becoming “non”-custodial (Greif & Pabst, 1988), it appears to occur in a small proportion of cases.

We could, thus hypothesize that having a low income and becoming noncustodial as a result of child protective service intervention are linked to a desire to have more children in a way that may not apply to middle-income non-custodial mothers.

Will history repeat itself for these mothers and their new children?

If so, short of mandatory sterilization, what is the “[‘final’] ‘solution?'”

There are at least three directions for future research on non-custodial mothers.

The first direction centers on

     –differences between low- and middle-“income”/ [education]/  non-custodial mothers.

For instance,

     –“Are non-custodial, low-income mothers, compared to non-custodial, middle-income mothers–

(a)      a less prevalent phenomenon?

(b)      less likely to voluntarily relinquish custody of their children than middle-income mothers?

(c)      more likely to become non-custodial involuntarily because of intractable mental health problems including depression and substance abuse?

(d)      more likely to want more children, and

     —     to try to have more children once they become non-custodial?

The second direction centers on

     –differences between low-income mothers who are non-custodial and comparable mothers who have custody     of some, but not all, of their children.

Do these two groups of mothers differ, and if so, how?

     –Does a mother lose some children on the way to losing all of her children?

     –And, if so, what could be done, preventively, to reverse this cycle?

And, finally,

     –the third direction centers on low-income fathers.

When and under what circumstances do they become custodians of their children (Greif & Zuravin, in press)?

How do those fathers who assume daily care and custody of their children differ [maritally and martially, as in, by force of law in times of “domestic ’emergency'”] from those who do not?

Traditionally, foster care literature has focused on and documented the consequences for children of being in formal foster family and group care placements.

It has not, however, to the best of our knowledge, addressed the issue of children who are living in “informal foster care arrangements”, i.e., the child who lives with relatives.

Given the current crisis in the formal foster care system-not enough placements to meet demand-placement of children with relatives is likely to increase. The consequences of these placements need documentation. Is the population of children in “informal foster care” growing?

Are children in “informal foster care” at increased risk for child maltreatment of all types?

Do they constitute a large proportion of the “runaway minor” problem?

We have attempted to show that more research on the lowincome, noncustodial mother is needed.

Etiology of child maltreatment:   A developmental€cological analysis.

By Belsky, Jay

Psychological Bulletin

Vol 114(3), Nov 1993, 413-434.

 Abstract

Applies a developmental–ecological perspective to the question of the etiology of physical child abuse and neglect by organizing the paper around a variety of “contexts of maltreatment.”
The roles of parent and child characteristics and processes are considered (“developmental context”),
          —     including an examination of  “inter-generational transmission.”* * *
The “immediate interactional context” of maltreatment, which focuses on the parenting and parent–child interactional processes associated with abuse and neglect, is analyzed.
Finally, the “broader context” is discussed with 3 specific sub-sections dealing with the:
          —     community,
          —    cultural, and
          —     evolutionary contexts of child maltreatment.
Implications for intervention are con sidered, and future research directions are outlined. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

A RECORD OF U.S. FAMILY COURTS SACRIFICING MOTHERS & CHILDREN


RE-POSTED/RE-BLOGGED AS DEPICTED BELOW,

A RECORD OF U.S. FAMILY COURTS SACRIFICING MOTHERS & CHILDREN

Family Courts Behind an Epidemic of Pedophilia & Judicial Abuse

Posted 23 January 2013

The below-referenced chart lists over 75 family court cases in Connecticut where children’s safety and well being has been jeopardized by unethical and even illegal activities of court professionals who routinely target, extort and exploit Connecticut
mothers.  In many of these cases, where mothers reported a father’s violent crimes against her family, the mother eventually lost custody to the wealthier father when he — the real perpetrator — accused her of alienation.  Violent fathers almost always won sole or joint custody of victims, and in some cases these fathers even went on to become mass murderers.  Insurance companies and the State are being defrauded by medical and mental health professionals who are routinely rewarded handsomely for submitting false claims that misdiagnose fit and loving mothers and their children with mental disorders they do not have; they are also providing diagnosis and treatment plans that are considered illegitimate by the AMA and APA.  Meanwhile, the same professionals justify their billing by deliberately recommending to judges the placement of children in the care of violent fathers, even rapists, and by shielding these offenders from criminal prosecution that might otherwise keep children safe.  The effect is that the whole family becomes damaged and in need of treatment, and are subsequently required to obtain ongoing court affiliated medical and legal professional services.

Some of these cases were outlined in the May 2012 Conscious Being Alliance story A Life Sentence.  The summary of cases spans the past 20 years, with older and newer cases, and where many cases

were drawn out over a decade, or more.

Attorneys with a strategy which involves inflicting emotional and financial pain on mothers to make them “erratic, unstable and unpredictable” should be reported to the Grievance Committee so that they are disbarred for a violation of Rule 8.4 (4) for conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice. The precedence their strategy sets is that a man is encouraged to abuse the mother of his children so that the attorneys can keep their revenue stream going despite the impact this has on mothers and resultantly on their children. Grievance forms can be found here:

Amy – You can add in defendants Judge Pulver and Atty Hilscher. As you reside in Connecticut, the action can be venued in Connecticut. We may have to bring it in Federal District Court and add in the Constitutional arguments.

Here is a link to my Confessions of a Stepford Wife blog. Feel free to check into my path as I find the silver lining from my journey through the Connecticut Court System. Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger so I’m hoping that this will be a happy story of transformation and growth.

I have a significant background in Business Communications and PR and would like to contribute my files for case … amazing how many people can abuse the system for years with a documented list of offenses and still be able to misuse the system to their private advances.

Concerned Mother | August 23, 2013 9:41 PM

A person is guilty under 2011 Connecticut Code Title 53 Crimes Chapter 939
Sec. 53-21 (3) if they “permanently transfer the legal or physical custody of a child under the age of sixteen years to another person for money or other valuable consideration”… such person “shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which five years of the sentence imposed may not be suspended or reduced by the court”. Has anyone asked the DA to issue a warrant for the arrest of some members of the custody business?

Keith, This is information which is tragically in sync with what I’ve read from other researchers regarding pedophilia rings and subsequent cover-ups occurring WORLDWIDE. Have you read Dave McGowan’s work entitled “Pedophocracy”? It’s not surprising one bit to learn that the courts are involved in the corruption as are politicans—ETC. I am reminded also of the late Ted Gunderson, former FBI agent who became Aware, shall we say–are you aware of his investigations regarding child abuse? What is bad, evil in society is vigorously protected and encouraged by the System.

THREATS ON FACEBOOK TO RAPE WOMEN DEFENDING ABUSED MOTHERS
Social Media Increasingly Abets Harassment and Censors Truth

28 June 2012

keith harmon snow

After years of harassment and judicial abuse in the state of Maine, protective mother Lori Handrahan and her supporters face threats of rape and other verbal sexual abuse on social networking media.  Welcome to the new world disorder of social networking, where ethics are meaningless and anyone can get away with practically anything – unless it would seriously help make the world a better place, and then it can be flagged, reported or deleted (by invisible and unaccountable administrators) if it threatens someone’s violent or hateful interests or ‘offends’ the abusers.

Like other social networking media, Facebook appears to be unable to discriminate between abusive men and abusive men’s ‘rights’ organizations and those (mostly women) who are under attack by them. Instead of punishing the abusers and traffickers of children, the system appears more and more to sanction them and support trafficking of children, domestic violence and violence against women.  Want to file a serious compliant with Facebook? Good luck!

SIS Handrahan.jpg

Dr. Lori Handrahan

On May 22, 2012 the abusive and litigious Maine attorney Michael Waxman launched a Facebook post that by June 19th had evolved into a discussion where Jeff Pyle, a Colorado man who appears to love Michael Waxman, posted threats promising to rape and sodomize the several women engaged in a hostile exchange with Waxman for the defense of Lori Handrahan.

While Sunny Kelley in Connecticut and most other protective parents’ stories of judicial abuse and destruction remain disbelieved, unheard and unknown, Lori Handrahan’s efforts to Save Mila have resulted in a very high-profile case garnering national attention — thanks to the Internet and the outrage of thousands of people across the country.  Both mothers Lori Handrahan and Sunny Kelley have not seen their children for months.

Hell for Lori Handrahan came in the form of her daughter Mila being raped by her husband, a foreigner who has now apparently gained citizenship under questionable circumstances.  Like most mothers entrapped and abused by the family court system, Lori Handrahan never technically lost custody of her daughter Mila.  “In June 2009 my daughter Mila came home with a shredded vagina and Igor [husband] was substantiated with raping her,” says Lori Handrahan.  “The courts did nothing.  Mila was 2 years old at the time.”

“The state of Maine has trafficked my child Mila,” Lori Handrahan told me, in January 2012, right before the court forced a gag order upon her and shut down her web site.

Dr. Lori Handrahan is a professor at the School of International Service at American University in Washington D.C.  Dr. Handrahan’s credentials are impeccable, with over 20 years of work in international development and human rights all over the world.  She was a guest on CNN and her op-eds about human rights and sex trafficking were often published in the New York Times. “Now that my child’s life is on the line I can’t get any news coverage at all.  Every single media outlet I’ve gotten interested has killed the story at the last minute.”

Lori and Mila’s case also involves corruption within the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), including the illegal naturalization of Ukrainian and Russian nationals who have stolen Mila away from her loving mother.

While available to discuss her case in early January, Lori Handrahan was later served with a gag order, intimidated into silence out of fear for her daughter’s life, and possibly her own.  Sometime in late January or early February of this year, the web site created to help them — “Saving Mila” — went dead.

CHILD TRAFFICKING IN MAINE

Maine attorney Michael Waxman quite literally gets away with anything he likes in Maine. In the course of her nightmare to recover her child Mila from the alleged abusive father, Igor Malenko, protective mother Lori Handrahan confronted all levels of the system in Maine and was repeatedly stifled by Maine officials.

“I believe that both Michael Waxman and Igor Malenko are both now and have been committing civil contempt of court since May of 2011,” expert investigator Stephen Pickering wrote to Cumberland County District Attorney Stephanie Anderson on February 1, 2012, after Waxman turned the court into a circus of inappropriate verbal and physical aggression on January 31.  While there was no order restricting Handrahan’s visitation with Mila, Waxman and Malenko had blocked all visitation for some time.

According to investigator Stephen Pickering, Waxman stood up and pointed his finger at the judge and raised his voice to the point that “some would describe this as yelling at the judge. Pickering further concluded that both Waxman and Malenko “committed criminal contempt of court on January 31, 2012, by their willful disregard of the judge’s ordering his courtroom as the judge was affirming his order.”

On February 1, 2012, Waxman sent an email to Judy Potter, Lori Handrahan’s attorney, stating: “And the more I think of it, the less I am convinced that this court has any power over ME in any fashion.”

Judge Jeffrey Moskoitz also behaved inappropriately on January 31, 2012, but Moskowitz has a long history of alleged collusion and corruption with attorney Michael Waxman. At the January 31 kangaroo court, Waxman threatened a lawsuit against District Attorney Stephanie Anderson and he filed the lawsuit in early February.  Five witnesses who were present provided affidavits testifying to what occurred in Judge Jeffrey Moskowitz’s court on January 31, 2012.

“The hearing began with Michael Waxman leading the court into confusion over labeling the massive amounts of documents he introduced, of such proportions that it was clear no one had the time to ever read them,” wrote witness Carrie Rockwell.  “He then harangued his client, Igor Malenko, for over an hour, thrusting at him pictures of Igor’s daughters’ anus and vagina, and reading allowed an email Waxman himself wrote to a woman whom he met on Facebook revealing his thought’s about what could be done to Mila’s vagina with a Coke bottle.  All this was done to prove what ten people in the room knew and could prove with certainty was a lie.”

One witness suggested that attorney Michael Waxman appeared to commit perjury, suborning perjury, falsifying evidence, and a conspiracy to commit fraud upon the court.

Now Waxman has created a new Internet site to harass Lori Handrahan and her supporters.  The site, called S.T.E.A.M. — Stopping the Explopitation, Abuse and Murder of our Children — is aligned with an assortment or other organizations, causes and petitions, but is inherently a front for Waxman’s destructive “father’s rights” agenda and self-protection.

STEAM WAXMAN HANDRAHAN .jpg

The S.T.E.A.M. web site is very sloppy.  As early as December 20111, Waxman revealed in casual web posts that a new web site was under design to replace the Facebook page called FOR THE LOVE OF MILA — another page created as a front to present Waxman’s disinformation.  The new S.T.E.A.M. web site was apparently launched in May 2012.

While Lori Handrahan — white, professional and highly accomplished mother — is offered as the primary column for “Featured Abusers for June 2012” (see below) the other abusers of the month are two African-American couples who allegedly killed their children.  Thus the architects of the site have provided two additional examples of violence against children that both fit the societal stereotype of black people as criminals. Contrary to media representations and Hollywood stereotypes about people of color, there are also high rates of domestic violence, rape and murder in white communities.  However, by placing Lori Handrahan next to these two black couples the hidden message is that Lori Handrahan is a violent criminal.

The two African-American alleged murder couples appear with Lori Handrahan on the HOME page.  This is just window dressing.  The web pages were hastily designed to provide a false sense of depth behind the front designed primarily to harass Lori Handrahan, and there are errors and inconsistencies in the web design beyond the HOME page.

For example, the menu at the top of the HOME page and most other pages has four clickable links: HELP – CONTACT US – CASES – HOME.  Deeper inside the web site are numerous “cases” of child abuse that are accessed by clicking on the CASES link in the HOME page menu.  However, as of 29 June 2012 the links for some cases don’t work at all (for example: “CASES PAGE 3”).  More importantly, several of the CASES links lead to pages where the menu at the top of the new page has only three clickable links: HANDRAHAN – HELP – CONTACT US.  This shows the clear intent of the web site.

Naturally, the HANDRAHAN link takes you straight to an extensive posting of disinformation exclusively about Lori Handrahan and this is the heart of the web site. The HANDRAHAN page offers an extensive post — unlike all other sections of the site — packed detail after detail of lies and half-truths fabricated by attorney Michael Waxman and his supporters.

Several of Lori Handrahan’s women supporters are also mentioned on the HANDRAHAN page, and these are some of the same women threatened with rape on the May 2012 Facebook thread.

ScreeHANDRAHAN PAGE STEAM -06-29 at 10.22.54 PM.jpg

“For the second straight month,” S.T.E.A.M.’s HANDRAHAN slam begins, “Lori Handrahan has been unanimously selected as the Child Abuser of the Month. Why?”

The answer is that the web site was created solely as a platform to harass Lori Handrahan and her supporters, to further confuse the story and cover up the hard truth that Lori’s daughter Mila has allegedly been trafficked with the support of the state of Maine, the Department of Homeland Security and attorney Michael Waxman.

As reported on the Saving Mila Facebook page: Mila is being sexually abused, the abusive father received free lawyer services over several years and the girl is barred from leaving this dangerous situation. Waxman has said many times that his estimated cost for legal services for Mila’s father amounts to around $250,000. To cover up his trafficking of Mila, Waxman has escalated the slander against Lori and his threats to have her committed and jailed.

FACEBOOK RAPE THREATS

“How about this cause and other bitches, take care of your own business and shut the FUCK up!” Jeff Pyle posted on the Waxman post on June 19.  A 1982 graduate of Weston High School (MA) who lives in Colorado, Jeff Pyle then sexually berated the women engaged in the discussion (see below) and threatened to “come back there” to find, rape and sodomize them. The post has now been deleted.

PYLE RAPE Handrahan Screen Shot small.jpg

Alerted on June 20 by one of the protective mothers who has been increasingly harassed by Michael Waxman, I responded:
Ladies, it’s not recommended to spend your time communicating with these ugly men.  As you can see, they are mean and nasty and try to compensate for their weakness by threatening women with sexual and other physical violence. Mr. Pyle – look me up, I can offer several solutions to your problems.”

On June 28, I received a notice from Facebook administration notifying me that I am under investigation for my post (now also removed).  There was no way to respond to the pop-up warning message that appeared when I first logged in to Facebook, and disappeared after, and it is impossible to figure out how to communicate with Facebook to challenge the flagging of my post and inform Facebook about their need to investigate Michael Waxman and the Handrahan case.

Online sexism is rampant, but the problem is systemic and institutionalized sexism and support for domestic violence that arises due to online media’s attempts to be socially friendly and compatible to as many users as possible.  While censoring some people and interests, these social media often end up punishing the victims and supporting the abusers.

Major social networking media — Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+ and others — have, one way or another, helped to censor Lori and Mila’s story.  The organization Change.org — reputed to be a socially conscious networking entity — still carries a petition created by Michael Waxman the father’s lawyer in Maine, intended to further censor and punish Lori Handrahan.

Facebook makes it impossible to issue a detailed compliant about the hate speech and physical violence threatened by Michael Waxman’s supporter Jeff Pyle.  While the most threatening post by Pyle was removed from the long back-and-forth, the post that I made was also flagged and removed.  Appropriate action by Facebook would include exploring Michael Waxman’s threatening history and behavior toward Lori Handrahan.

It is the same with Change.org.  It seems they will allow a petition by anyone, for anything, no matter that these petition might be created by violent individuals and have violent motives, including harassment.

Media personality Jay Smooth, the host of New York’s longest running hip-hop radio show, WBAI’s Underground Railroad, recently created a video criticizing online sexism and online threats against women.  Smooth was motivated by the recent surge of bullying, abuse and harassment attacks against Anita Sarkeesian whose Feminist Frequency project launched a Kickstarter campaign that came under attack.

“Many abusive men are active online,” comments a chapter organizer for the National Organization for Women (NOW), “and they often jump at the chance to try to intimidate women (especially protective mothers or their supporters) by making vicious and crazy threats, such saying they plan to rape the women, kill them, or otherwise cause them some kind of bodily harm.”

“It’s shocking and very frightening to realize just how many sexist men there are out there — bloggers and vloggers like Anita Sarkeesian often receive hundreds of these types of terrorist threats, almost daily.”

ENDNOTE:

Looking at one of the “human rights” petitions on Change.org that is listed by STEAM as an example of appropriate child abuse groups or movements — We demand changes to child abuse laws and sentencing, we find that the charges called for are suspicious at best and destructive to women at worst.  Most of the petition’s ten points otherwise appear to be reasonable and important suggestions for legislative changes or legislative protocols.  However, note items 6), 9) and 10) on this petition:

6) If a parent has left an abusive partner courts have no right sending a child for anything more then a supervised visit.

Really? What is this petition point actually saying? Courts have no right sending a child back to a protective mother (who has left her abusive partner) for more than a supervised visit? Sounds like the judicial abuse and alleged sexual abuse cases of both Sunny Kelley in Connecticut and Lori Handrahan from Maine, whose children at present are living out a life sentence.

Let’s look at this Change.org “human rights” petition point number 9)

9) In the event a child is claimed to be kidnapped or missing remove the other children in the home immediately place them in foster care.

Really? Does this make sense? Or is it an attempt to criminalize parents — probably the mother will suffer more — for reporting that their child has been kidnapped? Also, there is the question of how removing the other children from the home relates to the typically destructive and often highly profit-driven state foster care systems.  Does this give too much power to the state, an especially scary prospect given the state ‘social services’ and federally funded (Department of Health and Human Services) black holes serving the destructive father’s rights groups in states all over the USA?

The Change.org petition point number 10) is even clearer:

10) If the mother or father are living not wed to someone who is not the childs father or mother and has a known history of violence and the child is harmed or killed the mother should face equal charges for putting her child in danger.

Really? According to everything we have learned about domestic violence and child abuse, it is most often the case that women and children are trapped in abusive relationships and abusive households and fear for their personal safety and their children’s safety on a day-to-day and sometimes minute to minute basis. Women trapped in domestic violence situations by violent fathers are living in constant terror and escape is often considered impossible.  Such facts need to be taken into account and explored during investigations of domestic violence and child abuse/death.

But note that it is “the mother” singled out in this petition point who “should face equal charges” for living not wed to someone who has a known history of violence. This makes no sense, unless it is situated within the aggressive and violent framework of the destructive so-called “father’s rights” movement.

This “human rights” petition is nothing but a movement to give lawyer’s and judges more power to abuse women, especially protective mothers, and their children, by placing them in foster care. (The petition is also written in terrible English.)

LAWLESS AMERICA AND MY HORROR 

Dealing with CORRUPTED TEXAS

Just another WordPress.com site

LAWLESS MODERN AMERICA and MY HORROR DEALING WITH CORRUPTED TEXAS

Please, the  first thing to ask yourself is how is it legal. or even Constitutional,  FOR T…EXAS and our corrupted Government to take a innocent mothers child (at 41 yrs old, with no criminal background at all, and who claims  Native American Rights. My only child was viciously taken so scared at 2 yr old with no investigation right away for only making a evidence based criminal report on my wealthy powerful step dad who… was appointed by Governor Rick Perry!
In spite of the fact that my case was ruled out and dropped, it was illegally reopened due to CPS worker Debra Reyna saying the document was not official ( though it was).  The judge allowed this! The CPS investigator who signed it is DEBRA MAYO  who never came to court once to clear up their lies!  She also returned no phone calls in over 2 yrs!
The two (2) CPS workers that illegally set me up to lose again were clearly on a mission to destroy my life to side with money, and to and make money.

CPS provides regional liaisons to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) and to local/count juvenile probation departments (JPDs). TJJD is an agency created in 2011 by merging the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) and Texas Juvenile Probabtion Commission (TJPC). The liaisons are responsible for:

  • Working with DFPS state headquarters to address questions, issues, and concerns raised in the regions by CPS, TJJD, or local / county JPDs.
  • Reviewing monthly TYC and JPC reports in IMPACT (the DFPS case management system) and forwarding information from those reports to caseworkers.
  • Ensuring that caseworkers maintain accurate information in IMPACT about CPS children adjudicated to TJJD or county juvenile probation departments.

The mission of the Infant Toddler Court & Family Intervention Court is to protect abused and neglected children in Harris County through a judicial process involving treatment, recovery, and reunification of families where possible.

Success Through Addiction Recovery

The Infant Toddler Court in Harris County is a unique problem-solving court docket specializing in Child Protective Service (CPS) referred abuse and neglect cases involving infants and toddlers birth to three. The Infant and Toddler court docket establishes a coordinated approach that brings together parents, their children, legal representatives, and community services providers whenever possible in an effort to provide safety, permanency, and wellbeing for our most vulnerable children. This initiative is based on the premise that:  Early interventions can heal the trauma experienced by young children and support healthy parent-child bonding when possible  Stability in placement supports a child’s wellbeing  Early assessment and interventions matter  Families experience multiple complex needs that require integrated specialized services The systems and problems we work with are complex but our goals are simple:

Success Through Addiction Recovery

The Infants and Toddlers Court team consists of:

 Judge
 Prosecutors representing the county
 Defense Attorney for parent  Attorney Ad Litem
 Guardian Ad Litem for Child
 Infants and Toddlers Court Community Outreach Coordinator
 Administrative assistant/case manager
 Child Protective Services Staff
 Treatment/Service Representatives Family Focused Services
Early Childhood Evaluation/Early Childhood Intervention  [as in, a Petition or Motion for Intervention to Terminate Parental Rights in a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship]Research shows that growth and development [ fiscal] are most rapid in the early years of life [ infants and toddlers are a more marketable product than older children or adolescents and teens] .
The sooner problems are identified, the greater the chance of eliminating them.
Early intervention responds to the critical needs of children and families by:
 promoting development, learning and emotional well-being
 providing support to families
 coordinating services
 decreasing the need for costly special programs Parent-Child Relationship Assessment Because children experience the world from within the context of their relationship with their primary caregiver, the best way to assess their social-emotional functioning and well-being is to assess them in the context of their primary relationships.

Relationship assessments include two procedures:

i.     An Overview

What is my child………telling me? What is my child………feeling? What is my child………seeing? What is my child………experiencing?
 Observation of the primary caregivers interacting with the child.
 Interview regarding themes/ information regarding the caregiver and child’s history

II.     Increased Visitation/Visit Coaching

One of the primary goals of the Harris County ITC [Infant Toddler Court] is to increase opportunities for children to interact with their parents and for parents to learn how to respond to their child’s needs. Frequent and consistent contact is essential to maintaining a strong and secure relationship. Visit coaching is a specialized service provided to families involved in the ITC.

The primary goal of visit coaching is to make each visit a good experience and enjoyable for both the parent and your child. A visit coach does this by:

 Playing an active support role before, during, and after the visits
 Helping parents prepare activities for visits that will meet their children’s needs  Giving suggestions as the parents respond to events and emotions in the visit
 Helping parents give their children their full attention at each visit
 Helping parents recognize and cope with the emotions they are experiencing
 Keep infants and toddlers safe
 Build and support appropriate care-giving relationships
 Divert children from further involvement in the child welfare or justice systems
 Improve permanency, safety, and well-being for infants and toddlers
 Preserve and support families where possible, provide links to needed services, increase parentchild visitation
 Increase Judicial outreach, develop communitybased team network, provide training and increase awareness
The other Cps worker, JENNIFER CLARK, was ordering a quick termination of my rights not investigating at all my witnesses my home incredible home. MY girl lived a life that many children dream about. According to routine, ratified practice, pattern, and protocol, Cps hid all the proof of this as Clearly proves in all the evidence links included herein.
JENNIFER CLARK, CPS TORTURER IN AMY AND MARKEL CHARRON'S CASE
Jennifer Clark, Cps worker in Amy and Markel Charron Case, Harris County, Houston, TX; Kingwood, TX
pictures and video’s I posted no one could deny my girls happiness and safety. Yet after she was taken she admitted to being abused and covered in marks and bruises. On many visits she slurred and even appeared drugged which I secretly taped proof of. When CPS found out they had it where I could never see my child again just out of anger that I proved them wrong! This document clearly stating my case was ruled out was put public where almost 10,000 people viewed my evidence.
It was an official Governmental document signed by my only investigator of my case. Despite Rick Perry having proof I gave to him in person proving my evidence, he lied and said he’d take action and of course never did! Perry was out to protect my step dad, Dr. Gary W. McDonald very illegally, too.
Surprisingly, an officer provoked me aggressively to make my criminal report and little did I know it would completely destroy my life as a once happy, devoted and loving mother. Logically, think about it.
 
If l I never did anything to deserve this with as public as I went, then why is still nothing posted to prove they were not right?
Why have I not been sued or locked up for my claims yet?
I mean, after all, my story is very public on the internet, and my claims have never changed in almost  three yrs (3 years) after being caught up in this vicious lawless system. I lost my child forever for only doing my duty to protect!
Please complain after reviewing my evidence to the Governor’s office and share my information with anyone who many be able to help. The state illegally set me up claiming I imagined crimes therefor a unfit mom but the more I proved my sanity the more they attacked me almost as if they were trying to drive me crazy!
The unlawful scare tactics and set ups would of driven the sanest person over the edge but the more I proved Texas set me up to cover up crimes the more horrible unlawful things took place in my life scaring off many of my witnesses and even dear friends. Those who stayed loyal to my cause were messed with as well. THIS “GOOD OLE’ BOY STATE” is full of corruption such as crooked judges, lawyers, police enforcement with and a evil Governor to help make it all happen! Judicial fraud is out of control in Harris county and countless never get heard. The secrets behind TEXAS that I have educated myself about are beyond shocking.
One cannot even imagine the adoption scams going on here where countless children are used as bait for a money making… SCAM! No offense to Hillary Adams, but I know about so many legal abuse cases  as bad as that which herein testifies and gives credible, non-hearsay, non-fraudulent evidence that would blow your mind in just in Texas alone where there was never any justice or closure.
For example, I knew a beautiful girl Felicia Minix who I tried frantically to get help, yet who was routinely, maliciously, negligently, incompetently, viciously and sadistically ignored by those who get paid for honest services (absent semantic art or deception) who died while trying to escape the horrific, abusive shelters in and around the Houston, Texas area forced by CPS illegal system of organized crimes! Tragically, he/r story didn’t have any attention at all. This is just one small cell involved in a world- wide epidemic of for profit, “non-for-profit, “joint public-private” private property described as “child” stealing.  This patterned, well-organized, purely evil based on the root of it all MUST BE EXPOSED at all costs.
I posted proof of my Judge Pat Shelton being investigated and behind this illegal adoption process and judicial fraud involving vicious racketeering but the Governor here too helping these actions?

Ever wonder where the saying Don’t mess with Texas comes from?

“Yes– “Houston, where I regretfully livE,  there is a PROBLEM!”

If one tries to expose these things publicly on radio and tv as I did you will be a target and trust me you will be illegally messed with and black balled from getting help. TEXAS will destroy you only for proving them wrong…….trust me. Texas will illegally label you by entrapment or other types of illegal and u.S unconstitutional, thus, unlawful or induced set- ups, as “mentally ill ” just for fighting against fraud and corruption. The Hillary Adams TEXAS story of abuse and a judge still on the bench is no surprise to me. In no way am I downplaying the abuse she caught on tape but I can assure you my abuse growing up was far more shocking as many cases are.
I am a supporter of the defenseless that have no voice like helpless children. I was in another home senior yr over it. I was strangled, wiped, bitten, starved, and much more. The emotional abuse is beyond explainable that my mom and step dad conducted in. My mom for example once told me she would let me drown if my step dad and I wearing drowning at once and she could only save one. I was about 14 at this time. He was her creepy boyfriend until I was out of high school then they got married. I was called so many names and made fun of so much I became immune to it.
Growing up in high school was brutal. Many nights I spent in dark woods called greenbelts or friends homes to escape my moms abuse which later involved my evil perverted step dad. I had many witnesses including a witness I lived with senior yr 8 months over abuse. I have the scars to prove it too and I offered to do a polygraph test too because the state of TEXAS claimed I was lying!
Later in life I found out they had been dangerously secretly drugging me to make me appear crazy to have my child taken! When I reported this fact totally evidence based Texas quickly took my child saying it was a “delusion”http://youtu.be/BMQ-m9mf4Ro. Clearly after seeing this video she was in no need of a rescue! I was denied my Constitutional Rights, my due process of law among many other rights. How dare any state or Government tell me what is true just to side with their money and power and knowingly put my child in harms way just to cover up truths.
My only child was stolen unlawfully on the claims I made up very things the state had proof of! Cps was used as a tool to take me down unlawfully http://youtu.be/NcLyyzN4iXo Please, first thing to ask yourself how is it legal or even Constitutional FOR TEXAS and our corrupted Government to take a innocent mothers child (at 41 yrs old) with no criminal background at all with Native American Rights. My only child was viciously taken so scared at 2 yr old with no investigation right away for only making a evidence based criminal report on my wealthy powerful step dad who was appointed by Governor Rick Perry! Surprisingly, an officer provoked me aggressively to make my criminal report and little did I know it would completely destroy my life as a once happy, devoted and loving mother. Logically, think about it. If l I never did anything to deserve this with as public as I wen, thent why is there nothing still up to prove they we re right. Why have I not been sued or locked up for my claims, yet? I mean, after all, my story is very public on the Internet, and my claims have never changed in almost 3 yrs after being caught up in this vicious, lawless system.
I lost my child forever for only doing my duty to protect! Please complain after reviewing my evidence to the Governor’s office and share my information with anyone who many be able to help. The state illegally set me up claiming I imagined crimes therefor a unfit mom but the more I proved my sanity the more they attacked me almost as if they were trying to drive me crazy!
The unlawful scare tactics and commonly practiced to conceal–the  set-ups –would of driven the most rational, calm, and “sane” individual over- the -edge! Regardless, the more i proved Texas set me up to cover up crimes the more horrible unlawful things took place in my life, the more witnesses the scared off, including scaring off many of my witnesses and even dear friends. Those who stayed loyal to my cause then also became targeted individuals, or, “TI’s.”
THIS “GOOD OLE’ BOY” STATE is full of corruption such as crooked judges, lawyers, police enforcement with and a evil Governor to help make it all happen! Judicial fraud is out of control in Harris county and countless never get heard.

I posted proof of my JUDGE PAT SHELTON  being investigated and  being heavily involved, on knowledge,  behind this illegal adoption process and judicial fraud involving malicious, retaliatory, “vicious,” racketeering.  

The  governor also helps  these actions, too.?

Ever wonder where the saying Don’t mess with Texas comes from? And yes Houston, where I regretfully live, there is a PROBLEM! If you try to expose these things publicly on radio and tv as I did, you will be a target.  Trust me as someone who knows– you will be unlawfully, u.S constitutionally, and legally messed with.  You shall be “black- balled” from getting “hel/p.” TEXAS will destroy you for proving them wrong…….trust me.
Texas will illegally label you, in a well-organized, sophisticated violation of the Federal R.I.C.O. Act of 1970 perpetrated with the mandatory (see Memoranda of Understaning/ “MOU’s” which mandate all state employees, workers, agencies, and contractors and joint public-private ventures such as the sixty-four Child Advocacy Center/Children’s Assessment Centers (“CAC’s/CCCC’s), Children’s Commissioner’s Court, Harris County Commissioner’s Court headed by Judge of Judges, Ed Emmett and elected Harris County attorney, Vince Ryan and his special prosecutors planted every Tuesday in each CPS Cluster or “family ‘civil'” court in the county))  as “mentally ill” just for fighting against fraud and corruption.
Along those lines, The Hillary Adams TEXAS story of abuse and a judge still on the bench is no surprise to me. In no way am I downplaying the abuse she caught on tape but I can assure you my abuse growing up was far more shocking as many cases are. I am a supporter of the defenseless that have no voice like helpless children. I was in another home senior yr over it. I was strangled, wiped, bitten, starved, and much more. The emotional abuse is beyond explainable that my mom and step dad conducted in.
My mom for example once told me she would let me drown if my step dad and I wearing drowning at once and she could only save one. I was about 14 at this time. He was her creepy boyfriend until I was out of high school then they got married. I was called so many names and made fun of so much I became immune to it. Growing up in high school was brutal. Many nights I spent in dark woods called greenbelts or friends homes to escape my moms abuse which later involved my evil perverted step dad.
I had many witnesses including a witness I lived with senior yr 8 months over abuse. I have the scars to prove it too and I offered to do a polygraph test too because the state of TEXAS claimed I was lying! Later in life I found out they had been dangerously secretly drugging me to make me appear crazy to have my child taken!
When I reported this fact totally evidence based Texas quickly took my child saying it was a delusion http://youtu.be/BMQ-m9mf4Ro. Clearly after seeing this video she was in no need of a rescue! I was denied my Constitutional Rights, my due process of law among many other rights. How dare any state or Government tell me what is true just to side with their money and power and knowingly put my child in harms way just to cover up truths. My only child was stolen unlawfully on the claims I made up very things the state had proof of!

Cps was used as a tool to take me down,  unlawfully.

Click,  http://youtu.be/NcLyyzN4iXo .

Ironically since my helpless girl was taken so savagely she quickly started admitting her abuse after forced into a home I grew up in at 2 yrs old torn from me so brutally covered in bruises that I secretly got proof of. After all I had proof of my 2 yr old public being abused and tons of evidence and it made no difference to any authority here, including the FBI!
These secret tapings and pic I went public with had my rights terminated faster than any case anyone has ever heard of.

How in America can this be allowed.?

HAS America become a lawless place to live for countless of us?

PLEASE Fight back against Judicial ABUSE and FRAUD. What kind of monster of a state is this to treat women and children this way!

My judge, Pat Shelton, should be criminally investigated as well. On a link here you will see proof he has been in the paper for basically scams to terminate parents rights and shockingly Rick Perry is involved with illegal adoptions and removal of children as well! As shown here, I did meet with with Governor Rick Perry who had proof of crimes and promised to take action. HE illegally with held my evidence and helped put my girl knowingly in danger. His name was shockingly mentioned under oath by a CPS wicked supervisor in a way that won the case for the enemies with the help of their felony set up witness I will mention later.
He has refused to answer if he really said such things and if it was perjury he refused to take any action even though it involved his name! You can see him hugging me here ye,t under oath, Lisa McCartney said he had heightened security and feared for his life basically. The jurors about hit the floor and of course it was lies. I didn’t even know him. Nor had I ever had any words with him or his staff that would make me appear dangerous! I was in my 40’s and had nothing on me at all like what TEXAS was trying to pull illegally. I had never even been to jail, never did drugs or anything to deserve being treated in such this outrageous manner.
I went to church every Sunday with my girl and even bible study. I lived a solid Christian life that even now as public as I went no one could prove me wrong! I even had a public cash reward of almost 1,000 if anyone could prove me wrong. Don’t you think if I were so crazy that I can’t be a mom, someone would have really noticed–someone other than set up witnesses! I have always been a very social person and no one ever accused me of what this state did! I even was married to a PHD and PATENT lawyer for yrs who I still am friends with that knew I was innocent and a very good person. I was so bullied illegally for only speaking out.
My girl and I were so happy before I was illegally set up to lose! I endured many scare tactics as well but the more they couldn’t scare me off the more I was targeted! Still after risking it all and losing about everything I fight back working constantly. If I were what they claimed I would of surely lost my mind by now! I take no meds under extreme stress daily! No justice at all despite all my evidence was seen by countless worldwide! Texas Governor Rick Perry helped an illegal kidnapping and allowed myself an innocent mom to set up for only reporting a possible crime on my step dad dangerous , Gary W. McDonald, he appointed. The crime was actually evidence based and a report with a time line was even made by a lawyer, Lori Gabowki.
Yet, my child was taken with no warrant on the ground I was imagining it, therefore, delusional! Since when do they take happy children with no hearing while someone is forced locked up in a mental institution so heavily drugged  that I almost died! I have medical proof of the STATE drugging so heavily I was shutting down basically and even couldn’t see. I had twitches that at one time a doctor thought may be permanent damage.
Even though a judge ruled out their claims right at the start, the STATE illegally started vicious set-ups, but even so it was ruled out.  However, the more that I beat them,  the  more vicious they became and proportionally pursued me.  This story should havef made national news.  I am told now by an officer that I have been black- balled from ever getting help.

Can you imagine we live in a world where an abusive family that harmed you and your child (evidence based, “pre-determined,” “trauma” informed  outcomes research) can buy your child and steal your life?  

I must file something again,  but remember despite proof that I was set up by their lies and evil and that they got away with felonies the courts ignored me even The Supreme Court. What should I file?
I want to sue Governor Perry as well for helping them win illegally! He is directly involved more than you know yet! Remember he appointed my wicked step dad to head of the Dental board and knew he’s crimes later and did nothing!

How, or Why is it that TEXAS would not let me file a criminal report or write a sworn statement?

That is highly illegal and even when I traveled to do so I was told the report must be done here. It is clear I am black- balled to cover up a huge political scandal.  Still, no one has jumped on this story.  My evidence site alone was at almost $10,000, a cash reward to prove me wrong.  But still,no one could!
There were so many unlawful and illegal tactics applied to this rigged case beginning before it began. I had no chance of winning only because it angered those involved that I proved them wrong! Of course, this is extremely unlawful. I have lost everything fighting back.
My girl changed so much after taken! This is a parents worse nightmare! I didn’t even recognize her this way. CPS, Governor Rick Perry and many …others hid felonies and set ups on me! They covered up proof of being my girl clearly abused as well! Since I taped proof of my girls abuse and took secret pics my rights were unlawfully terminated quicker than any case ever heard of where I could never speak to her again.  Now, it has been two 2 yrs!

So I just started posting the evil faces behind this case, and, already, three (3) of the faces are deleted without me doing it! Anita and Gary McDonald, my mother and step-father (step-father Gary McDonald of Kingwoood, Texas, having been appointed as head of the TEXAS DENTAL BOARD criminally protected by Governor Rick Perry) bully me all you want you won’t shut me up illegally again!

Your buddy, Rowena McGowan Freeman, shown in this public picture on the Internet, is FROM MAINE, and who is also a frequently  secretly–ex parte–appointed suborned witness who has a felony record and FBI number!

I had called the police on her for theft in FEB 2008.  The same time the following year in 2009, described or disguised sometimes as ” Rowena McGowan Freeman,” had me illegally arrested and thrown in jail for the first time in my life in my life even though I was in my 40′s–statistically significant proof of what i am not!

Since I had called the police on one described as “Rowena McGowan Freeman” about a year before, Freeman had motive to get me. And that she did– but totally unlawfully!

Harris County CPS and solicited, alleged enemies, used Rowena McGowan Freeman as their number one witness illegally/  It is interesting that individual describes, “Rowena McGowan Freeman, did not raise her own kids and is on MARRIAGE  No. 5!

Rowena-Freeman
“Rowena McGowen ‘Freeman'”

. . . and the “enemies”  fraudulently concealed/ illegally covered- up the real, unambigous truth about he/r very disturbing background.  Further, said perpetrators not only permitted, but also suborned perjury (see malfeasance, malpractice, therapeutic deception, false imprisonment, fraudulent concealment, assault, theft, abuse of public office, acts unbecoming of a public-private officer and also of the court, malicious prosecution, a “state” law claim as opposed to federal law claims for damages, abuse of “authority,” abuse of process, abuse of procedure with malice rising to the level of gross negligence, intolerable acts, failing to report child abuse or neglect, collusion, entrapment, federal statute on fraud and false statements, though pursuant to “Title” 18 U.S.C. instead of “Title” 42 U.S.C., grand theft or larceny, tampering with government documents, a felony in “‘state’ of Texas,” harassment, intimidation, retaliation, entrapment by estoppel, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty (to disclose), invasion of privacy, knowing and intentional suppression of exculpatory evidence, racketeering, interference with child custody (Texas Penal Code), child enticement, agreement to abduct from custody, interference with (“child”) “access and visitation,” (Texas Penal Code) misprision of felony of a judge, bribery, perjury, violation of the right to bodily integrity and freedom of movement, unlawful, “unreasonable” search and unlawful, “unreasonable, seizure without probable cause, reasonable suspicion, and without reliability, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraudulent misrepresentation, negligent infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, conversion, fraud, simple conspiracy, federal, u.S Constitutional conspiracy against rights committed by color (and color of process) of law (42 U.S.C., section 1985(3), and violations of federal, u.S. Constitutional and its Bill of Rights and natural, guaranteed, God-Given and “unalienable” and “inalienable” and implied rights, Amendment IX (Ninth Amendment) to the federal u.S Constitution and its Bill of Rights, (42 U.S.C., section 1983, and see also section 1988, the Civil Rights Attorney’s Fees Award Act of 1976), and the federal Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act)allowed total perjury despite having reliable, verifiable, authentic proof and evidence that s/he was lying! Everything “Regina McGowan Freeman,” CPS, and solicited “enemies” uttered and testified, bearing false witness against an innocent individual in a court, thus “orders” void ab initio without special or appearance, null and void as a matter of law and fact, and also substantive, truthful fact was nothing but multiple-party, suborned, boiler plate hearsay.  This violation of  Rule 807, Rules of Evidence, was not only ratified, but first suborned with  no witnesses to back up any of “Rowena McGowen Freeman’s” outrageous claims peretrated against Oath and section 1986 of “Title” 42, U.S.C., the neglect to protect/”Good Samaritan” law! Freeman, like so many other social workers without the degree, was on a mission to destroy my little girl, markel charron, and i, being natural (wo)man described “amy charron.”  That this experience was beyond scary is the understatement of the year.

I will expose “Regina McGowan Freeman” as well as it has now been almost 3 yrs forced to endure  being harassed to not! If I get arrested over it you all will get caught! Anyone can pull “Regina McGowan Freeman’s” and other aliases the real record off the internet to corroborate this fact.

Rowena McGowan Freeman also lied about being a nurse to give bogus very damaging medical claims not true about me! Since when can a teacher say under oath she has a nursing degree and call me basically crazy and mentally ill? What kind of outrageous witness was this? That isn’t even legal! She should be in prison for all that she got away with! She also said, under oath, that I was a “call girl” in spite of the fact that there was no proof of this– in almost  three (3) years! How very odd it is that there is no proof of her lies, not even as public as I went. Where were the utter lack of witnesses to prove  Rowena’s malicious and retaliatory perjury against me in court?

What they did was so unlawful. S/he provoked me clearly and then they set me up for a crime just for calling her and questioning why she was doing this to my child and I. She even said my bed was broken from”wild sex”– under oath! Of course I was mad….I was fighting for my child! What a joke and if it were true men would of came forward by now. It has never ever happened! This crazy witness must have been paid-off.  Rowena Freeman got more time than any of my witnesses, yet she knew me less than all the others.

How would someone I barely knew have had more ‘say-so’ than my Grandma and life long friends in my trial or hearing? Rowena McGowan ‘Freeman’ walked up to my Grandma and I, and begged to be my friend.  Next, Rowena Freeman was their star witness? Maybe this was to help the wealthy enemies win, though unconstitutionally, unlawfully, thus, illegally--presumably unreasonable, even subjectively.

She even said I didn’t graduate from UT and my evil mom just sat there smiling knowing she was lying! My diploma was public and almost 10,000 saw it!

So, Rowena set me up and the judge so allowed it! I was arrested and thrown like a unwanted dog in jail for the first time of my life scared to death during the trial for only questioning her on why she she was lying! I was forced to tell the jurors I spent the night in jail and I came from jail on the day of the verdict!

The case didn’t get heard until a yr later where is was dropped yet I never got another trial! Yet the jurors thought I was going to jail for yrs so how would I of won?

Texas you PLAY ‘DANG’ ‘DIRTY’!

These public servants–non-disclosed slave-owners, well-known, literal, federally investigated by foreign service agents as those who run judicial prostitution rings in Florida, Georgia, Texas, California, Nevada, and New York City–child sex traffickers–made my life HE _ _!

These child traffickers, judicial prostitutes, deal-cutting double agents, child “protective” service or “social” workers–“free man”–unlawfully “ordered”a  6:00pm curfew against me when they knew that I worked at night at a modeling agency, and had started my own fashion shows.   The judge wouldn’t let me work–in Texas! I lost tons of money over this!

I have been threaten to not expose this, but enough is enough!Rowena McGowan Freeman” and my step- dad, appointed to the Dental Board of Texas by Governor Rick Perry, dentist, Dr. Gary Armstrong, sat in court closely together trying to put me in jail 10 yrs when I had never been in jail until their set ups! It was so scary….you have idea!

How could someone with a felony record take down someone with no record?

Proof of one lie for starts read her public article she claimed under oath she was or had been a nurse….. FEATURE STORIES www.markelcharron.justicesite.org …..hurry and take a peek before it all illegally gets shut down again.Changing Lives: Rowena Freeman

Leap of faith Standing at the front of the classroom, seventh-grade teacher Rowena Freeman observes the dark-haired girl to her left. The once-vivacious student has become withdrawn, sometimes hostile. Something is going on, but what—problems with parents, a romance gone awry? Freeman doesn’t know. Not yet. But she has walked these roads, and she knows the best way out of a crumbling life situation—education.
Rowena FreemanFreeman, who’s working on her doctoral degree, comes from a family that was convinced she would never attend college.“I always wanted to go to nursing school, but I grew up in a really poor family,” she said. “Only boys and rich people went to college. My mom was the last of 23 children in her family. She said, ‘You will take business classes, be a secretary and get married.’ I actually got in trouble for taking college-prep classes in high school. But I didn’t want to be a secretary. I planned to have a secretary.”

After graduation, Freeman enrolled in nursing school but soon realized that medicine was not for her. Instead, she followed her mother’s life prescription. She got married, left her childhood home in Portland, Maine, and accompanied her husband to Texas, where he began graduate school at UTA. It wasn’t a happy life. Her husband was brutally abusive, both physically and emotionally.

“He was so controlling,” she said. “He wanted to keep his eye on me all the time.”

For more than four years, she never had access to more than a few cents in pocket change. But since her husband was in school and spent most of his time on campus, he allowed Rowena to return to classes as well. He saw her education as a positive, she says, because it kept her within his circle of control. In reality, UTA gave Freeman the knowledge and help she needed to escape.

One professor noted her gift for writing and encouraged her to study English. Another friend, a retired teacher, insisted: “Your heart is in being a teacher. That’s what you must do.” All the while, compassionate staff at the UTA Health Center patched her up after every beating and helped her make the contacts she would need to leave a man who repeatedly threatened to kill her.

But leaving was complicated. Freeman had a young son to think about. She had no money. Her family lived thousands of miles away. Still, she planned, saved her pennies and prayed for the strength to make the toughest decision of her life.

“I walked out on faith,” she said. “I didn’t know anybody, really, but I knew I had to leave.”

In 1999, Freeman graduated magna cum laude from the UTA Honors College with a bachelor’s degree in English. She followed that in 2003 with a master’s in education. Her Ph.D. will be in educational leadership from Andrews University in Michigan. Retired UTA Honors College Dean Carolyn Barros praised Freeman as someone who “tenaciously stuck to the high goals she set for herself. She kept on through all the challenges. She never gave up, never quit.”

The 37-year-old Freeman, who teaches English at Arnold Middle School in Grand Prairie, firmly believes that the bad times happen for a reason.

“I have many things in common with my students,” she said. “They’re poor. They come from difficult family situations. I know what it’s like to be hungry, to be cold. All five of my siblings dropped out of high school. My family still can’t understand why I’m still in school. Not a lot was expected of me, but I wanted more.

“I tell them [the students] what my 10th-grade English teacher shared with me: ‘You can become just a product of your environment, or you can go up the ladder of life. Even if your parents don’t believe in you, you can do it.’ ”

As a child, Freeman traveled the world in books.

“I wanted to live in one of two places, either in Venezuela or in Texas,” she said. “My ex-husband left Texas and I stayed. UTA and the people I met there made it possible.

“All of my experiences have made me what I am today. Now I think back about it, and I wouldn’t change it at all.”

www.markelcharron.justicesite.org …. and please hurry and take a peek before Ramona Mayon shuts it all down criminal evidence again illegally after getting so much money out of me!My own always wicked of a mother has not let me even talk to my girl in two (2) years, now even though she only lives forty (40) minutes away! How anyone could doubt my story is beyond me! That is severe child and adult abuse,  and it fits her evil patterns of abuse throughout the course of my whole life. She even abused my real dad,  who died at the age of fifty (50) years old.

My father, Mark R. Charron, kept so much to himself but I will speak out for him as well! When my dangerous evil mom, Anita McDonald, married him, she was pregnant.  So, then she dropped out of high school . She called me so many names while she blamed me for anything and everything!

She always hated me for things that were her own fault! She thought that because my dad wrote hit music for the famous country music artist, BJ Thomas, and others, that she would land big money.  But later, when my dad became sick, much like I did in a similar suspicious manner, she had an affair with the man to whom she is now married–Dr. Gary McDonald, D.D.S., Kingwood, Texas, appointed to the Texas Dental Board by Governor Rick Perry.

Any real investigator should have put these puzzle pieces together. I had a very disturbing secret tape of my dad questioning why he felt so sick from 1983 and my mom laughing. I had a jerk of a crooked high profile lawyer named George Parnham, and YES– he was Andrea Yates‘ lawyer.

George Parnham
Attorney George Parnham, Amy Charron’s lawyer, and also Andrea Yates’ lawyer

HE (crooked Houston, Texas lawyer described as “George Parnham”) asked for the tape, but never gave it back, at least not to me.

When I showed up for the tape with a witness, corrupt Houston, Texas attorney described as “George Parnham,” threatened me.  Parnham  was involved in the unlawful, unreasonable, illegal, “objectively reasonable” entrapment in whichI was intentionally, knowingly, and with reasonably foreseeable knowledge of future harm and consequences with all known information given to him at the time, based on knowledge, belief, direct, damning proof and evidence, complicit in the entrapment-based,  federal R.I.C.O. Act of 1970,  court con perpetrated illegally, under the color of authority of law in which I was set up after getting a almost $20,000 retainer.

My story is so far worse than you know yet. How am I still standing is beyond me. It’s like no matter how much I tried to win righteously, they would illegally make me step back.   My evidence was stolen out of my house with witnesses.  The police did nothing. Luckily, much was with a trusted friend, or so one may [ or may not] say.

The threats, harassment, scare tactics, inter alia(generally and actually, federal R.I.C.O Act of 1970 predicate crimes and abuses of power, ) were not not something I ever dealt with until this case so think about it. Sadly everyone in Houston seem to protect their shocking crimes and not even let me legally defend myself. I lost everything unlawfully fighting back even my beautiful home and belongings and they counted on that to win! In this pic with the Governor I was promised he would take action and I gave him my evidence card and showed his people my evidence! He lied and never did anything but hid felony crimes.http://www.change.org/petitions/stolen-only-a-few-months-later-fronm-this-picture-unlawfully My girl changed so much after taken!

This is a parents ‘worse’ nightmare! I didn’t even recognize her this way. Cps, Governor Rick Perry and many others hid felonies and set ups on me! They covered up proof of being my girl clearly abused as well! Since I taped proof of my girls abuse and took secret pictures my rights were unlawfully terminated quicker than any case ever heard of where I could never speak to her again now in 2 yrs!
By: Amy Charron My child was knowingly forced into danger

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Written by a lawyer in Dallas, Robert Guest. Governor Rick Perry has opined on the CPS YFZ disaster.

What would Mr. Perry have to say to the hundreds of children who were wrongfully taken from their parents?If responsibility needs to be taken for […court edicts] saying that we stepped across some legal line, I’ll certainly take that responsibility,” Mr. Perry said.

“I am substantially less interested in these fine legal lines that we’re discussing than ……I am about these children’s welfare, that’s where my focus is. That’s where CPS’ focus is.”

How could someone call the law that protects parents from having their children arbitrarily stolen by CPS a “fine legal line”?

Statist apologetics are built upon the tyranny of good intentions. Mr. Perry readily endorses this illegal compound raid based on phony evidence, sloppy police work, and religious profiling because CPS meant well.

Rick has also taken it upon himself to accept responsibility for one of the worst bureaucratic disasters in Texas history. If I was responsible for the YFZ disaster, I would have the decency to resign. Unfortunately, Rick won’t step aside and let someone with less incompetence, hubris, and disdain for freedom run our state, or CPS.

WHEN did it become OK that the innocent are guilty over conspired actions to predestine there fate? When did it become okay …..that often those who don’t get justice is due to matters of revenge and motives than really justice? Who anymore holds our Constitution sacred? Immoral and injustice results should never be the final measure to credibility. So many as myself are treated by this flawed agonizing system …with ‘savagery.’  When did …it become okay to watch so many devoted victims forced into being a prisoner of pain and isolation only because  “ WE THE PEOPLE” rather see them as outcast clearly misunderstood or simply crazy.

When did it become okay to watch our stolen, visible children vanish into misery, and sometimes death?

Does anyone believe in fighting for something bigger than oneself?

Why is it that many are never held accountable for such injustice and crimes on humanity?

Since when is judicial immunity tolerated and countless violating their oath to office? Since when is okay to be Guilty of Willful blindness? Our Founding fathers created a Constitution to protect the innocent from such tyranny. If FREEDOM AND JUSTICE isn’t worth fighting for, then what is?

Often the persecution is without limits when attacking the falsely accused. I am livid to see what really is happening in America now. I was personally tortured for fighting against this corrupted system. Truths embrace me now that I never would of believed 3 yrs ago. I am Amy Charron who has earned my opinion. I will never be okay with any of this and I will not quit fightback against this corrupted system.

Now, regarding all my criminal evidence being shut down by

Ramona Mayon–? . . .

I have spoken to a sheriff, and Ramona Mayon is being investigated for crimes, now.

She even took down proof of my little girl being abused on secret audio and secret pics I took! Who the ‘H_ _ _ _ ‘shuts that down?

I gave her enough chances and she continued to try to bribe me for a lot of money to keep felony crimes on my girl and I public! She is so ignorant to think with over 10,000 seeing all the evidence all over google and all that she would get away with hiding crimes. I am gathering all the proof now and a witness and the sheriff will be making a criminal report for extortion and stealing my evidence and property over a money scam. I also taped our conversations.

She will be held accountable for clearly allowing me to lose this case by hiding the truth. That is criminal. She knew that evidence was everywhere and now it is all suspended even she trashed me on the internet lying about why it is shut down.

I will also do a you tube today that my officer friend is filming. It is funny that all my shocking you tubes videos went down at the same time she shut me down. Such a darn thing but very stressful! Luckily I still have some proof of these things. Pictures are public still of my girls back last seen that Ramona has shut down over fraud. This is a crime to hide crimes.

Word is that the infamous Pat Shelton told the juvenile court administrative judge last week that he’d stop hearing cases as a substitute judge. That’s what state Sen. John Whitmire relayed to me for last Thursday’s column.

Good choice on Shelton’s part, especially since the judges who had been appointing him don’t seem to have the authority to do so.

Shelton is the divisive former judge widely criticized through the years for stepping on parental rights and running a kind of adoption express out of his courtroom. Last year, after sixteen years of serving the bench, Judge Pat Shelton decided not to run for re-election.  Shelton  was succeeded by one of his favorite, oft-appointed lawyers and political donors, Glenn Devlin.   Last year, Devlin raked in nearly $111,000 on appointments in Shelton’s court.

Coincidentally, or perhaps not, it was Judge Glenn Devlin who appointed Judge Pat Shelton to fill- in [the papers and to sit as a substitute judge for him much like the corrupt judges directly responsible for Robin Carr near Rockwall, Texas (Dallas and Tyler, Texas and Smith and Dallas Counties) having not seen he/r private property described by the “State” as “children” in SIXTEEN YEARS AND COUNTING] for him [Devlin] in a parental rights termination case that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Attorneys for the mother and grandmother faced apparent retaliation from other lawyers in the case after they accused Shelton of bias and asked for a mistrial.

The circumstances of the case, and also the names of those involved, were familiar enough to get the attention of [Senator Whitmire, D-Houston [but of course, it would be human nature to want to know what the innocent, oppressed mothers and children other Comm ittee members have on those like it] who has long been concerned about visiting, substituting, and special appointment sincecure, Judge Pat Shelton’s antics on the bench, and also for his preference of adopting kids out rather than first considering whether there are appropriate relatives who can take them, as the CPS policy requires.

Senator John Whitmire.TX

Whitmire began poking around to see why Judge Pat Shelton was still presiding over cases. He found out Shelton wasn’t on the official list of “visiting judges,” maintained by regional administrative Judge Olen Underwood.Naturally, Whitmire wanted not to know on what authority Shelton was appointed to hear cases. The senator and I were referred to a mysterious “local rule” that makes the claim that  juvenile court judicial discretion in appointing a substitute judge in the event of their absence.

But, the rules, provided by district court administrator Clay Bowman – entitled, Rules of the Judicial District Courts of Harris County Juvenile Trial Division – don’t appear to give any judge the authority to appoint a “substitute.”

The rules do talk about what to do if a judge is absent: The local administrative judge is supposed to notify Judge Olen Underwood (the presiding judge of the 2nd Administrative Office of the district courts) and ask for a “visiting” judge to fill in. Alternatively, cases could be distributed to one of the other juvenile courts.

Olen Underwood.Judge Administrative District of Courts.2.Montgomery County

Judge Olen Underwood, 2nd Judicial Administrative Region for the Courts

There’s no mention of a rule that lets juvenile judges call up one of their former judge buddies to baby-sit the bench for a day.

The model “local rule” appears to be nothing more than a good ol’ boy understanding that lets judges line their friends’ pockets on the taxpayers’ dime.

So far, Shelton has been paid about $13,600 for working 274 hours as a substitute judge in juvenile courts, according to records provided by Clay Bowman.

The county spends tens of thousands of dollars on these substitutes each fiscal year, including more than $59,500 spent in 2010, $55,300 in 2011 and $41,300 so far in fiscal 2012, according to records. Before Glenn Devlin’ even became a judge, he was a part of the substitute judge club, albeit a minor one, earning $5,000 since fiscal 2010.

So, on what authority is the county writing these checks?

Clay Bowman wouldn’t return my call Wednesday and didn’t answer my questions through email. Nor did I get a response from Shelton, Devlin or juvenile court administrative Judge John Phillips.

The level of incest, conflicts of interest and pay-to-play politics in two of the three juvenile courts has long been a scourge on Harris County’s justice system. Sadly, this is just the latest example.

And even if Shelton has sworn off the bench for now, as Sen. John Whitmire heard from Phillips, he’s still a player in the juvenile courts.

Shelton this year has received appointments to represent children in 23 cases, according to documents provided by the Harris County Auditor’s Office in response to an open records request. He’s been paid $9,200, and counting, for his work as an attorney or guardian ad litem, or co-ad litem representing the interests and/or wishes of children in CPS cases.

Those of us who breathed a sigh of relief last year were wrong. Shelton never left. He just changed seats.

Family Court Crisis: 

We, being individual, numerous, countless women who had our children forever taken only for reporting abuse where then with no chance to win our children were given to the abusers! This is a growing epidemic and still many just watch us lose everything caught up fighting a losing battle! WE are denied protection as well when we are threatened to keep quite.

My life was very normal until the second I made a evidenced based criminal report and with no investigation or calling my witnesses the STATE of Texas grabbed my 2 yr old with no warrant and put her in harms way! Despite my girl admitting she was being abused, secretly taping it, Texas terminated my parental rights quicker than in any case most Americans, and Texans, could not under/ stand.

Drug addicts and alcoholics with felonious and violent public criminal records have more rights than many of us!

I have been severely abused where Texas put my helpless child and on top of it they were suspects for attempted murder by a lawyer making a police report that was covered up after I did as well! Stories like mine are more common than you think. Many of our children die, or we do just from a broken heart because some are intentionlly,  knowingly, foreseeably, maliciously, with invidiously discriminatory animus and cruel and unusual abuse, systematic re-victimization, and torture for profit  perceived as not being able to survive with all the illegal tactics they pull.

GIVING PRAISE AND THANKS TO GOD FOR ANSWERING ONE REAL DADDY’S PRAYERS IN THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS!

jOHN'S BOY

WOW! LOOK AT THE SMILE ON THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL. THIS PICTURE TELLS THE STORY OF A HAPPY ENDING FOR MR. JOHN AND SHEMITRA HILL AND HIS TWO ADORABLE CHILDREN IN THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS AFTER ONE STRANGE DETOUR THROUGH DELIVERANCE IN HOUSTON, TEXAS (HARRIS COUNTY) FAMILY COURT IN THE 246TH WITH “THERAPIST” FELECIA POWELL-WILLIAMS AND A PLAYING/PAYING CREW, ON KNOWLEDGE AND BELIEF.

THIS FAMILY IS CERTAINLY BLESSED.  PRAISE THE LORD!  HALLELUJAH!  GOD IS GOOD!

https://www.change.org/p/united-states-department-of-justice-change-the-laws-regarding-family-law-and-for-a-judge-lawyers-cps-and-police-officers-that-assist-with-covering-up-sexual-abuse-and-injury-to-a-child-in-the-state-of-texas

John Hill’s faith the the Lord and his willingness and actions that put His Word into his daily work (and even as a trusted worker for the United States Postal Service) have restored me not less than once over the last couple of interminable years without my son (pursuant to a  kidnapping or “wrongful, unreasonable ‘removal'” perpetrated for profit, prejudice, and retaliation by a band of rogue criminals working under the “color of the authority of law” for “state of Texas” in both Brazoria and Harris Counties, Texas.  John similarly endured, but he never, ever, ever wavered in his faith or his constant witnessing and testifying the Word of the Lord.  He never blamed God, but always insisted on more prayers, harder work, more faith, and fasting with the prayer.  John and his faithful new bride, and I may be misspelling he/r name, so please forgive me, but, Shemitra, testified and Stood by John and supported him in his darkest moments which he never let anyone else feel as dark.   John always wanted to praise and give glory to God and to not detract from that with the petty woes of this “valley of tears” the the Holy Bible in fact DOES promise us as opposed to the “rose garden”  to which so many feel “entitled,” especially in the current times.  I can remember John saying to me in dark hours in my struggle with the same forces working against families, children, and especially unwed mothers and young mothers with young, adoptable children, many of whom have vindictive ex-partners recruited by an all-too-willing profiteering/privateering joint public-private “non-for-profit” “state and local government,” or, “COG” (regional Council of Government), to be glad.  Why did he tell me to be glad?  “Because everything is happening just like it is supposed to and must happen.”  This is proof that His promises are real.  Thank you for your unwavering faith and encouragement, Mr. Hill.  God bless your beautiful family and children.  Your faithfulness and loyalty is of a rare breed indeed that is just not found in many corners of the earth.  I haven’t seen it yet in anyone who has not gone through what we have been refined through.

How did the Lord help John accomplish the Herculean task of enforcing his equal parental rights?  We give thanks that the Lord showed Mr. Hill a way in the form of a loan and an apparently highly effective Harris County, Houston, Texas (and surrounding areas to include North Houston) board-certified family law attorney, Gary Polland.

Now, we rejoice and continue to pray for over one hundred thousand mothers and children and a few fathers who missed the current or the custody-switching scam a la the Texas Office of the Attorner General for the Office of Title IV-D Child Support Enforcement and New Day Services “Responsible Fatherhood” for those with criminal records and “Healthy Marriage Initiative.”   That is certainly not to imply that these institutions are not -preferable or meritorious, but rather than blatant gender discrimination of an invidious animus, and also of the socio-economic and marital “color” are inflicting enormous harm and injury in the glorification and false worship of grants, “trauma-informed, levels based, outcomes” which encourage questionable court appointments and unholy alliances and conflicts of interests among service contractors and providers trusted by public servants who have been “trusted,” irresponsibly, with the highest and most noble of causes–our children.  These fiduciaries have breached their con tract with the parents and children of Texas to the degree they continue to so operate without disclosing fully and fairly and duly compensating the real private property owners gifted by GOD ALMIGHTY.

So happy for you, John!  The children look happier and healthier than anyone could ask for.  And they are even mowing the lawn and performing chores!  All Glory goes to God.  A win for one of us is a win for all of us!  “Today is a day in which the Lord hath made, therefore we shall rejoice and be glad in it (Psalms 117:24, The Holy Bible).”

Further, For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.…(Psalms 84:10, The Holy Bible).

Many believe firmly, and this real mommy agrees, that the Word of the Lord alone, and only the Holy Scripture, can and shall save us in the time of Evil.  It is time to do our homework and start memorizing.  This part is literal, in my opinion and based in real life observations.  For there can only be one master of “illusion.”  Cogito ergo sum.  I think, therefore “I AM.”  I believe.

The scourge and details below:

Petitioning Governor Rick Perry and 5 others

Change the laws regarding family law and for a judge, lawyers, CPS, and police officers that assist with covering up sexual abuse and injury to a child in the state of Texas

john hill the woodlands, TX

 

I have been fighting for full custody of my children in the 246th court in Houston, TX with Judge York presiding, due to my ex-wife, Dana Rochelle Edwards, allowing our children who are ages 7 and 6 now to be molested since 2009.

My children were out crying about being sexually abused in their mother and maternal grandmother’s home, majority of the weekends that I was able to pick them up they were always complaining about being sexually and physically abused, which as a father I didn’t know what to do or how to handle this, I took them to the hospital and called CPS, but CPS wouldn’t come out, they would wait until the children were back in the custody of my ex-wife and talk to the children or call my ex-wife and ask her did it happen and she would say that the children are lying and making things up or I was making up it because I didn’t want to pay child support, and CPS would close the case and do nothing. So SANE  (sexual assault nurse exam) cases were performed on the children, but not every time they went to the hospital.

Deadre Jones, my ex-wife’s mother, stated to CPS that I was the only person making these accusations about my children being abused, but it is clearly documented that my ex-wife and her knew about the abuse prior to me even knowing, as well as Jones going to the hospital with ex-wife for complaints of abuse. It is also documented in CPS reports that she was also taking my children to the “suspected person” as well.

Jones was in court and every CPS meeting with my ex-wife playing the innocent grandmother role, knowing all that time what was happening behind closed doors at her house as well as my ex-wife house, and didn’t come forward with the truth. Judge York appointed Bobbie Young as amicus attorney in December 2011 to see if she could help my ex-wife and I resolve our issues and do what was best for the children. Young is also a RN.

 

Young met with me at my home, she spoke to my fiancée, who is currently a RN concerning the sexual abuse, outcries and behavior of my children, Young admitted to her that she knew that the molestation was going on; she had recently visited the home of my ex-wife.

‘My mother, who is a retired school teacher, also spoke with Young concerning the sexual abuse, outcries, and behavior of my children; she admitted again that she was aware of the abuse. Young filed a motion for my ex-wife and I to have a psychological evaluation through Dr. Victoria Sloan, I did not trust Young because as soon as we went to court she was another person and siding with my ex-wife, so we verbally agreed with my prior attorney Bruce Buskirk that I could find my own person to perform the psychological evaluation. And I did, Young brings me back into court  as well as the psychotherapist, Dr, McDaniel, after speaking with him and he told her that nothing was wrong with me psychologically, she told Judge York that he wasn’t qualified to performpsychological evaluation, and it needed it to performed by a licensed psychologist, Judge York approved her request.

In January 2012, Judge York, Young, and Angelina Gooden, my ex-wife’s attorney who is also an amicus for the 246th court, heard medical testimony from Harris County police officer  (Sgt. William Lilly, appointed by Harris County Sheriff, Adrian Garcia, supervisor to Lilly, Ruben Diaz) who read the SANE (sexual assault nurse exam)  nurse report from Memorial Hermann in the Woodlands, Tx, stating that my son told the SANE nurse that “the person at his mother’s home put their penis in his mouth and urinated,” my daughter stated that “the person put their mouth, fingers, toys, and penis into her vagina.”

Judge York stated that he believed that this has been going on, but he didn’t order to remove the children from their mother’s home, he just stated that he wanted to hear more testimony from the medical staff at Memorial Hermann, which Memorial Hermann’s lawyer kept filing quash motions to prevent their staff from coming into court testifying about the statements that my children made concerning sexual abuse happening to them at their mother’s home, which Judge York approved, but he kept contradicting himself saying he wanted every medical personnel that the children made outcries to about  in his court to testify.

My ex-wife continued to violate court orders and Judge York wouldn’t even hold her in contempt, he would just say stop doing that. Young kept bringing me back into court for psychological evaluations which was done by a board certified psychologist that gives insight on the news in Houston, I gave her his information, signed a release form for her to talk to him, but she never contacted him, she kept saying I didn’t get to talk to him prior to Mr. Hill seeing him, which was never in her original order.

I filed a grievance on her because she wouldn’t stop, she is extremely biased, kept telling me she was going to make sure she takes my rights taken away, and kept defending my ex-wife, while saying that the molestation didn’t happen that it was all speculation, I provided Young with the medical documents showing my children describing to medical professionals about the sexual abuse that was happening to them in their mother’s home, Young also had access to CPS reports as well. I even told her that my fiancée and I was threatened by the CPS police that if we file another CPS report then something will happen to us. We filed a complaint with internal affairs against the police officer after contacting the Mayor of Houston, Parker.

In April 2012, I picked my children up and my daughter had burns going up her legs and my son had cigarette burns on his knee, which their mother nor maternal grandmother told me when I picked them on Friday evening, I didn’t find out until Saturday morning when I was putting them on their night clothes because they fell asleep on the way home, which is what they typically do when I do get them and sleep until 11am or 12 pm on Saturday, which my mother or fiancée is watching them while I am at work.

Well, my mom took my children to the hospital just to make sure that the burns on my daughter’s leg was not infected and needed to be treated, my daughter had a old burn on upper thigh which she wouldn’t tell anyone how she got that burn, but the lower leg burn happened because she fell on a barbeque pit top, my son also verbalized to the doctor, that their cousin Reggie (Reginald Moffett), who is a grown man, burned him with cigarettes on his leg and his mom just got mad but left them at his house anyway and went to work.

The doctor asked if there was a history of abuse and my mom and I told her as well as my daughter started showing her vagina, so she sent my daughter via ambulance to Texas Children Hospital  in the Medical Center, I verbalized to the doctor that I didn’t want a SANE case done because the 246th court, Young, and Gooden would try to take my rights away because they said that I was “emotionally abusing my children due to the SANE cases, ” the doctor said that the court can deal with her, and my daughter was going to Texas Children’s Hospital that night.

CPS was called, but they said they couldn’t come out until Sunday, which they never did, they called my ex-wife instead and she said that she wasn’t present but that she fell on a barbeque pit top and didn’t say anything about the older burn on her thigh.

My previous attorney Allecia Pottinger was notified and contacted Young to come to the hospital, Young spoke with the medical staff and I and they also verbalized that I didn’t want the SANE case, but there was suspicion of abuse so a SANE case would be done that night, Young agreed and stayed at the hospital until midnight. Young used the SANE (sexual assault nurse exam) case that she approved of and had my rights taken away, CPS was made managing conservator over my children, Pottinger told me that my children would be placed in a family member’s home until they can figure out what is going on, which I gave them my sister’s information who is also an attorney and her husband is a FBI agent, but that didn’t happen CPS placed the children right back into my ex-wife’s custody immediately after court and Reggie Moffett’s).

I was ordered to do another psychological evaluation as well as “psychiatric evaluation,” which they had no valid explanation for another evaluation, which would have been my 3rd and 4th evaluation in less than 6 months.

Young and Gooden were allowed to use my cancer medical records, which was obtained illegally through my ex-wife, she was never given any permission to obtain my medical records, while I was going through cancer in 2006, I was diagnosed with mild depression, I lost my home, I didn’t have insurance, my ex-wife couldn’t keep a job, and lack of family support, they were able to use that to say that I had an undiagnosed “mental disorder,” which was unbelievable. My ex-wife NEVER did her psychological evaluation that Young ordered for Dr. Sloan and Judge York approved, Gooden and Young verbalized that she had walked out of her evaluation and didn’t complete it.

So, then I was on supervised visitation for taking my children to the hospital for them out crying about being sexually abused, this is ridiculous. ‘

So, during that time I obtained CPS reports, my ex-wife’s story about the abuse kept changing with every CPS case worker, she knew about it, she didn’t know it, the children were lying, and I was molesting my children. My children actually out cried to CPS case workers about the abuse happening in their mother’s home and maternal grandmother’s home, CPS still didn’t do anything. CPS talked to the SANE nurse, she said there is “absolutely no way a child could make up a story as detailed as this.”

Young and Gooden would consistently bring me in and out court to take away rights of seeing my children, once Judge York approved of what they were doing; they walked out of court laughing. I was on supervised visitation through CPS at their office my ex-wife was still taking my daughter to the doctor for concerns of abuse, trying place the blame on me, my daughter was diagnosed with vaginitis while I was on supervised visitation.

In August 2012, my ex-wife, her two (2) cousins ( Margaret Moffett and Niosha Sampson), and her aunt (Sheryl Thomas Gainous )went to CPS making a report that they had walked into the room my son was performing play sex on his cousins (which are their children), now all of these children are less than 10, they asked them what they were doing, then they asked my children who taught them that, my children supposedly said that I taught them that, I would touch their private parts while they were taking a bath, they asked my children how did it feel when I touched them, my children supposedly said at first it felt tingly but then we liked it because we thought it was game, and we would have sex with each other in front of our dad and we would like it, Dana became shocked to hear this and blamed herself for the abuse, saying she could have asked more questions, I mean these are professional people, no one found it bizarre that all these people would come in on the same day while I was on supervised visitation, and make up a crazy story as this, I was questioned through CPS about this outrageous accusation and Young, Gooden, CPS, my ex-wife, and her family walked out of court laughing. Judge York didn’t do anything about this, he did order for us to see the same psychologist for anotherevaluation,” which we did, the psychologist said that I was angry and just needed to work with CPS and the court to get my children on the other hand she said that my ex-wife said she had an 11th grade education but she more than likely had the education of a 7th grader, she had psychological issues and needed to see a doctor to properly diagnose her as well as see a psychiatrist to placed on medication, and she needed repeated psychological evaluation for the next 2 years to see where she is at, Young never brought this into court, matter of fact Young and Gooden wouldn’t even release the information to my prior attorney Hilary Unger for months, discoveries kept being filed, but only portions of the discoveries were being followed.

Dana and my son during a therapy session with Powell-Williams, it is documented what really happened with the “play sex”. Per Powell-Williams, it is documented that my son stated that he was being bullied by his older cousin into playing sex.

Dana never stated the story her cousins and aunt made up about the whole “play sex” situation when she became shocked  while she was in therapy with my son. This was not brought to the attention of  the court, that Dana went in with her cousins and aunt to make those false accusations against me, which CPS was aware because they had Powell-Williams documentation. After showing HCSO and the DA documentation, they stated that they couldn’t charge them with making false CPS reports because CPS should have filed charges against them once they received documentation that Dana’s story had changed about the “play sex” three weeks later.

Dana also openly admits to CPS that she has to sleep in our daughter’s room at night to make sure our son doesn’t come in and bother her at night. Now, what kind of mother portrays her own son of doing this to his sister instead of taking accountability for her own actions, which something should have clicked in someone’s head to see that she is definitely hiding something. The suspects have never been properly investigated because they call Dana prior to coming to her home and she denies the suspects saying that is the name of my altered ego, which is ridiculous. 

(or, in Author of this blog’s  son’s case–what kind of a father alleges the same about himself to a five year old little boy?)-America, we have a problem!  Wake-up Houston!

Judge York ordered Dr. Felecia Powell-Williams, who is a psychotherapist that the children were seeing but not on the approved family plan through CPS that he signed off on to see me with my children so that I can get off of the supervised visitation because CPS wanted off the case after I sent them medical documentation showing my daughter was diagnosed with vaginitis while under their care and my ex-wife was still taking them to doctor for concerns of abuse while I was on supervised visitation, CPS also blocked me from getting the medical records so I had to file a complaint against ABC pediatric clinic with OCR, which is how I was able to obtain part of my children’s medical records and continue to see the bias and unfairness in this entire case.

Powell-Williams wouldn’t follow the court order, came into court because Young and Gooden filed a motion they wanted to increase my child support because my ex-wife doesn’t like to work and wanted to keep me on supervised visitation and give my ex-wife full custody and Young wanted to prevent me from testifying to anything she has said to me.

Because a few weeks earlier she admitted again to Hilary Unger, my previous attorney and myself that she was aware of the molestation going on in the mother’s home, but she couldn’t prove it through the SANE cases and she would get me off of supervised visitation, but she was consistently defending and covering my ex-wife at the same time.

Powell-Williams said that I was “delusional” because I called her and told her that she was basically doing like everyone else in the case covering for my ex-wife and she is just like CPS, and Judge York ordered her to see me with my children and if she wasn’t aware of the order than she needs to contact CPS to get the order so she can do it, then she says under oath she cannot make a decision concerning my psychological state after only seeing me 2 times for less than 30 minutes. Powell-Williams was also provided with all my children and my psychological evaluation, CPS notes, and medical records, so she can be fully aware of everything concerning this case.

Judge Hays, the associate judge in York’s 246th court in Harris County in Houston, ordered me to continue to be on supervised visitation and go to mediation and denied Young’s motion, the bias just continued and they were unable to provide me with a valid explanation for continuing to be on supervised visitation.

Powell-Williams was upset because I wasn’t going to personally pay her. I informed her I did not hire her and that therapy sessions that she is providing for my children is between CPS and herself, and she needs to contact them for payment arrangements.

Mellonie Baldwin, Achor Counseling, was the counselor that CPS ordered for my ex-wife and I to go to for individual and parental counseling. I had been going there for several weeks and Baldwin comes into my session and asks me for my ex-wife’s contact information because according to her my ex-wife had not come to any counseling sessions.

I informed her that she needs to contact CPS to get her contact information. I was told that I was finished with my counseling sessions and my ex-wife has not attended any sessions and they can’t make her come to the sessions.

So, my counselor signed off on my counseling sessionsThree (3)  months later Baldwin calls me the night before court and tells me that I have 6 more sessions, I told her no I do not my counselor signed off and said that I was done, I was already seeing a Christian psychologist for counseling prior to coming to Achor Counseling and I was presently seeing her. Achor Counseling was supposed to call her and make sure that they were not interfering with her therapy sessions with me, which they failed to do.

She became irate on the phone and I told her she needs to talk to my counselor, Mr. Smith and he signed- off on me, and she nor CPS can change the order at the last minute to accomodate whatever it is that they are trying to do, and I was not going to do any more sessions at Achor Counseling and that is  the end of that.

I also informed her that I had recorded my counseling sessions because I did not trust Achor Counseling because they were connected with CPS.

Baldwin hangs up the phone in my face, but calls back later saying that she found the missing sheet of paper, and she will call CPS to clear up this matter immediately.

February 2013, after CPS pulls off the case, I receive all of their files, in there is Achor Counseling records, my ex-wife had been seeing Baldwin the entire time that I was going there, and she e-mailed CPS and told them I was “rude to her and she didn’t want to see me anymore for counseling and that she is going to write on my final evaluation that I need to stop “lying on my ex-wife.”

They had all of the medical records and CPS records, so everything that I was saying about my ex-wife lying and covering- up the molestation of our children was in black and white. I was seeing Mr. Smith so I don’t know why she would even write anything on my final evaluation, which continued to show how people were openly and willing to cover up the molestation of my children.

Hilary set up a mediation meeting, even she said that mediation wouldn’t work, I told her I didn’t want to go to mediation that my ex-wife would continue to violate court orders and nothing would be done to her.

The mediation was basically in favor of my ex-wife on everything, I was going to be”subjected” to another psychological evaluation and continue to be supervised visitation through SAFE which  I would have to pay for, I told her I didn’t want to sign it, I called my fiancée and talk to her about it, Hilary gets on the phone and tells her the same thing she tells me, that even if I go to trial and the jury finds favor in me, Judge York stills has the last say, he is pro-women and he would never give me custody of my children, he would look at the SANE cases and base his decision solely on that, he would increase my child support to $1,800 dollars, so I need to go ahead and sign because he will order it anyway and I should be like every other man in Texas take my standard visitation and go on with my life, so I kept going back and forth not wanting to sign it and she kept saying I have no choice its only for a few weeks, I am still unable to see my children til this day as well as my ex-wife continues to violate the phone order, they cannot find a psychologist or counselor who even wants to touch this case, because after I send them paperwork proving what I am saying is true and the bias and the injustice that I have been going through in this court, they don’t want to touch it.

My sister who is an attorney contacted Hilary asking her why did she make me sign that mediation order, Hilary tried to say that I wanted to, but my sister said I talked to him right before he went into your office for the mediation meeting, he talked my mom, and his fiancée as well, he verbalized that this was waste of time and he didn’t want to sign it and needed to go back to work, she started saying I am the worst client she ever had because I don’t know how to control my emotions, which this court is unfair, biased, and continues to do everything that is wrong during this case, so I have every right to be upset this court is playing with my children’s lives as well as mine.

Houston attorney Hilary Unger was aware that court-appointed amicus attorney Bobbie Young was retaliating; she even called the ethics board with the State Bar of Texas on her and said that if she sides with my ex-wife during the trial then she would file on her, but we never went to trial because of this mediation.

And, of course. Judge York denies the appeal, said that this case makes him nauseous, he says he doesn’t make decisions its on the amicus, laughs and looks at me and say, “Mr. Hill sorry I couldn’t help you.”

But my children reside in a home where there was attempted murder on my ex-wife, by her family member, who shot into their home while she had the children.

CPS supervisors came to court and said that they are aware of the court violations but unaware that my ex-wife was taking my children to the doctor while in their custody, but I have e-mails showing that they knew about it, they even sent the e-mails to Hilary, but they were allowed to continue to lie in court.

There are also police reports showing that  my ex-wife tried to pull the children out of the car while I was driving off and chased me on the interstate and the police would be called out every time I would go to pick them up, but none of this matters to the 246th, Judge York believes children should be with their mother, no matter what.

I have hired 4 attorneys and spent almost $80,000 dollars (that was in 2013), lost memories of my children growing- up, and lost my home, I am worse off now than when I started this fight. After my attorneys talk with Young and Gooden, they pull off the case every time, they say this case is crazy.

Judge York ordered phone conversations while I was on supervised visitation on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 pm, she violated the order over 40 times, Judge Jim York never did anything, my ex-wife, Dana,  continues to violate the court orders, I am still unable to talk to talk to my children on several Thursdays and haven’t seen them since July 2013.

I no longer can see my children through SAFE because they don’t want to be involved after sent them information pertaining to this case, ask them for documentation for every time my ex-wife violated the SAFE, and a receipt of payments to SAFE

SAFE manager got upset and said that I didn’t pay for the person supervising the visits one time out of the several times I did feed her. Judge York will never make CPS, Dana or Young and Gooden accountable for lying in court, because they have went beyond measures to keep the molestation of my children and my ex-wife knowing about it out of court.

Attorney Hilary Unger then pulled out of my case as soon as we get out of court and after my appeal was denied, and tells me find another attorney to appeal Judge York’s decision as well as the mediation, I contacted over 20 attorneys and all of them say wait until Judge York is off the bench in November 2013, but what about my children’s safety, does that not matter, what about the fact she continues to violate orders and her lawyers (Gooden and Young) cover her. \

They also told me that I didn’t have a chance because I was going up against two amicus attorneys (court-appointed) in Judge York’s court (246th, Harris County, TX) and he will rule for whatever they want every time, which is not right and highly biased.

My ex-wife was found guilty of assaulting me and took a plea deal, which shows she is a pathological liar and is unable to control her actions. She lied under oath several times about things pertaining to this case and it can be proven.

I had to see a Christian psychologist for several months to help me deal with anger issues concerning this case, she was NEVER pulled into court to combat all the people that Gooden and Young brought in.

She helped me to deal with this issue as God would have me to and that’s by continuing to pray and stand on His word, even though it is hard at times. I know that the God I serve is a God of justice and evil shall never prevail against good.

Nobody besides myself and the police officer who read the SANE nurse’s report was ever able to testify concerning the children’s outcries and witnessed inappropriate behavior and conversation with other children.

Attorney Hilary Unger, one of my attorneys, brought up the red bumps near my daughter’s vagina that she showed my mother and the case worker during a supervised visitation, the case worker comes in court and says that it looks like mosquito bites, it was January 2013, the weather was cold, so in order for my daughter to have mosquito bites near her vagina she would have to be in a bathing suit, standing near water, and her mother is watching her getting attacked by mosquitoes and why doesn’t my son have it as well, but that was allowed to go on in the 246th court.

 

I went to the DA for Harris County in order for them to pick-up of assault case against my ex-wife instead of keeping it in the JP courts, which video-taped at my children’s school and the principal was an eye witness.

I wanted Harris County DA to pick up the case because Elijah Gooden was my ex-wife’s attorney and used what was happening in family court against me and the JP DA was going to give her a slap on the wrist.

She previously pleaded not guilty to the assault and said that I hit her, and once the video was seen it showed that she assaulted me.

Prior JP DA was going to give her serious charges, but Gooden said that he wanted to reschedule because he wanted to bring a witness of the assault which was her cousin, Niosha, who has a criminal record of stealing and using Dana’s ID.

They had previously re-scheduled the assault case over 5 times prior to that.  I showed the Harris County DA evidence of my ex-wife allowing our two children to be molested since 2009, and the cops seem not to be investigating the situation thoroughly, she looked at the evidence and shook her head.

She stated I have a lot of evidence against my ex-wife, but Harris County seems to not be able to find the perpetrators. She didn’t say anything else about picking- up the case and trying to find the perpetrators.

I really need to help to overturn Judge York’s decision and every action of my previous of attorneys, Gooden, and Young. The 246th court, CPS, the attorneys, and Harris County Police Department, had a lot of evidence, and chose to cover it up as well making threatening phone calls to my fiancée and myself.

How many children lives will be allowed to be ruined because of the actions and decisions of these people, how many parents who are trying to protect their children, will be humiliated and persecuted because they are for what’s right.

When will the laws change and there be equality for both parents, just because you gave birth to a child does not make you a mother. I am for being with right the parent whether it is mother or father.

My children have a false pretense of what the law is about, they told me “dad we told them what happened and now we can’t come home, and this will never end, family laws in Texas” what does a parent do when you can’t protect your children because of the s and Texas doesn’t have any laws holding people accountable for covering sexual and physical abuse to a child/children.

I am thankful for what i have sown into my children, and that is they continue to trust and believe in God and they continue to pray and ask God to let them come home, which helps build my faith that God will put the right people in place to make sure that no one else has to go through what my family and I have been through.

I am just asking for people to take a stand for what is right and lets make a change, instill in our children morals and values, and protect our future generation from bias of the justice department.

Thank you for taking time to read my letter, I pray that this petition gets to the Supreme Court of Texas and the family law will be changed for the safety of children.

How Child Protection Services Buys and Sells Our Children

via Fostering Profits: Abuse And Neglect At America’s Biggest For-Profit Foster Care Company – BuzzFeed News.

Fostering Profits

A BuzzFeed News investigation identified deaths, sex abuse, and blunders in screening, training, and overseeing foster parents at the nation’s largest for-profit foster care company.

posted on Feb. 20, 2015, at 10:52 a.m.In the summer of 2004, a 15-year-old boy, needy and eager for attention, was driven down a road that stretched through the endless flatlands of Maryland’s eastern shore. The boy, known in court records as R.R., arrived at a dirt driveway, where a sign on top of a wooden post announced Last Chance Farm.

Four separate couples lived at Last Chance Farm. All were related to one another and all earned money taking care of troubled children who had been placed in foster care, including R.R.

But R.R.’s new guardians weren’t directly supervised or paid by the government…
