Disabled Parenting Discrimination in Family Courts

July 9, 2014 in due process, family court, family rights

I am a disabled parent who had five beautiful children. I was born at only 24 weeks gestation and had brain damage that caused cerebral palsy. I grew up enjoying a normal childhood in farming country, building dens, playing in hay stacks and having a free run of our village.

English: A collection of pictograms. Three of ...

A collection of pictograms. Three of them used by the United States National Park Service.

I married my childhood sweetheart at the age of 18, gave birth to a son. After five months, I took an evening job as a receptionist to support us as my husband went through university. A few years later and after giving birth to four more children and helping out in my husband’s electrical store, he dropped a bombshell, he didn’t want to be married anymore, he’d tied himself down too young by being with me. I thought at the time that was the worst day of my life but it was nothing compared to the custody nightmare that was about to follow. After obtaining a residency order in my favor, he locked me in our home and left with all our children, including my three week old newborn baby. I was absolutely frantic and called the police.

Police Discrimination

I showed them my court order but they informed me that as I had married the father of my children, all they were prepared to do was do a ‘safe and well’ check, despite the fact that my newborn was totally breastfed and dependent. After leaving, telling me rather curtly that ‘There’s more than one way to feed a baby’, I was forced to beg my ex-husband on the telephone for the return of our children. 24 hours later, he returned only my two year old and newborn, keeping my older children at an unknown location.

CPS Interrogation

From the moment the police had been called, CPS got involved and that was the start of a two year harassment campaign from them, most of it centred around my disability. They asserted incorrectly that I was not able to bath my babies because I had refused to answer what I viewed as discriminatory questioning about my parenting skills and I was told I had to consent to a social worker coming in to bath my children every day and if I didn’t, they’d be removed from me.

On one occasion they broke down my front door when I had gone out. People would turn up unannounced to ‘spot check’ me and they kept this up for a two year duration. I was court ordered to attend a parenting class but I refused to comply, saying that I had successfully cared for my children for years while my husband was working and didn’t need any classes. I asked why my able bodied husband was not asked to attend a class and I was told he didn’t need one as he didn’t have my disabilities.

On meeting me for the first time, the first words from the guardian ad litem’s mouth were “Oh goodness, how do you cope?” Not hello, or nice to meet you . I knew from that point that I was in for a rough ride.

Court Bias

When the case went to court, I discovered that the police had failed to honor my court order because ‘there were disability issues’. I was shocked and appalled that in the 21st century, people could still be deemed unfit to be a parent because they are disabled.

By the time all the interviews had been conducted, more than seven months had passed so when it finally went to court, the judge said the older children had been with their father for months and it would be cruel to move them so he awarded him custody – a delay that only happened because of the fact that I had to prove myself fit to parent and as a disabled woman I had higher standards to meet than your average able parent.

Fast forward a whole decade and my ex-husband was still pursuing me through the courts for custody. After being diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in 2010, my health deteriorated. I had to have major surgery. This was brought up in court and it was asserted I was not ‘fit’ enough to be a mother, despite having hired help. I was also accused of abusing prescription drugs because I had to take medications. It was inferred by the Guardian ad litem that my children may be acting as ‘carers’ for me, in spite of my assistant’s employment with me. Shockingly, the court allowed all these accusations to be levelled against me. I was informed I had to answer questions about my disability because my health was the reason my ability to parent was under scrutiny.

I was allowed to keep my two youngest children but I shouldn’t have had more than a decade of my life trying to defend my right to be a parent just because I was born disabled.

No Disabled Parents Rights

I found out that there is no law to protect the relationship between a disabled parent and their children. The American’s with Disabilities Act doesn’t have a section on parenting and two thirds of dependency statutes allow a court to determine that a parent is ‘unfit’ on the basis that they are disabled.

Disabled parents frequently struggle to retain custody and are the only group of people where it is legal to discriminate against them. Up to 80% of parents with an intellectual disability will have their children removed. For physical disabilities the rate is 40% or higher and for those with physical disabilities going through custody disputes, 13% will be treated unfairly on the basis of disability. Parents who have psychological disabilities such as bipolar disorder or anorexia will very often have their children removed if they come under the radar of the authorities. In addition – sometimes a disabled parent will be denied the right to any visitation because of court judgements that are stereotypical and the court assumption that children will be forced into ‘caring’ roles with their parent, a view that doesn’t support what researchers have found.

After my experiences I have launched an official complaint with the government and I hope to create amendments to disability discrimination laws so that child custody cannot be decided on the basis of disability. I also hope to outlaw interrogation about disability so that in the absence of any real child protection concerns, disabled parents shouldn’t have to ‘prove’ they can be parents.

Foster Child Speaks Out

March 31, 2014 in Child Protective Services, corruption, foster care

help3_ezrI’m a former foster child. I had suffered abuse at home with my step dad. I stood up to my abuser and asked for the help of child protective services. He confessed and was convicted for his crime and I was placed in foster care. Even though my step dad was the criminal he was released years before I was. Foster care had become such an abusive prison for me I finally ran away, homeless out on the streets, to young to work and no where to go.

Not only do I have physical scars from the abuse I received in foster care but some days I still cry from the type of mental maltreatment I received at the hands of my supposed protectors. I’d come a long way since foster care. I had worked full time and went to school at night to finish high school and continue further in my education to become a surgical dental assistant. Later, I changed my career path and began working for scholastic books. I refused to allow CPS, my therapist, and the foster parents opinions to control who I would become or to limit my future. (I was lucky to be stubborn and rebellious.)

Here recently I’ve had a great opportunity to become connected with other former foster children, and we each share our stories with each other and give each other support. But I started to notice something. The opinions and ordeals each former foster child had faced in foster care, seemed to echo the same opinion or same unacceptable situation when thrown into foster care. For example:

An ex foster child said something recently that had caught my attention. She said, “One thing that bothers me is society says parents who use drugs, abuse their kids, neglects them, and many more things, aren’t good enough to be parents and forcefully removes the children. This very same society looks the other way when we’re abused in foster care, moved several times, remain in limbo for years without any stability.

Kids in jail

We go years if not forever, waiting to be adopted by these people, but they go overseas to adopt. We get dumped out on the street and left to survive like animals when we age out of the system with absolutely nothing. Society doesn’t care what happens after we leave our unfit parents. When in some cases the unfit parents are 100% better than the numerous foster homes who have been checked out by the state and approved. Just because we leave our unfit parents doesn’t mean we live happily ever after.”

Here are some numbers found on Wikipedia that support this former foster child’s statement.

Maltreatment per 100,000 US children.

CPS    Parents

Physical Abuse           160          59
Sexual Abuse              112          13
Neglect                          410       241
Medical Neglect             14          12
Fatalities                           6.4        1.5

I’ve also had an ex foster child contact me wondering why foster kids are treated so badly and no one pays attention. His reasoning, his temporary foster parent had run him over with her truck. He was pronounced dead but then had finally been revived. He sued the state for this and somehow only ended up with $40 thousand dollars and mass long term pain (his court appointed lawyer received the bulk of the money) and he also has many bills from the doctors, him and his bio mother are obligated to pay. ( I can understand his frustrations.)

I’ve been reading many ex foster kids stories (including having my own) and what I find is more atrocities after they were removed then what they experience at home. I can not help but wonder why this agency has made such great leaps and bounds on how to manipulate, maneuver through the law, and perfect how to remove children but they themselves have no idea how to raise children. They have spent millions upon million each year for over 30 or 40 years on these state run agencies yet in general all they have produced is abused and neglected children who go on to struggle in society.

Look at these statistics copied from children’s rights.org

  • 12-30 percent struggled with homelessness
  • 40-63 percent did not complete high school
  • 25-55 percent were unemployed; those employed had average earnings below the poverty level, and only 38 percent of those employed were still working after one year
  • 30-62 percent had trouble accessing health care due to inadequate finances or lack of insurance
  • 32-40 percent were forced to rely on some form of public assistance and 50 percent experienced extreme financial hardship
  • 31-42 percent had been arrested
  • 18-26 percent were incarcerated
  • 40-60 percent of the young women were pregnant within 12-18 months of leaving foster care.

Nancy Schaefer already further summarized all of this as, “The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”, these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation, than in the general population. Think what that number is today ten years later!”

Senator Nancy Schaefer reported, “that poor parents very often are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire lawyers and fight the system. Being poor does not mean you are not a good parent or that you do not love your child, or that your child should be removed and placed with strangers; that all parents are capable of making mistakes and that making a mistake does not mean your children are to be removed from the home. Even if the home is not perfect, it is home; and that’s where a child is the safest and where he or she wants to be, with family;

I’ve also read countless ex foster children’s stories of how they had been medicated for one thing after another and even witnessed an adopted child so overly medicated, he could not control himself. Thankfully after talking to his adoptive parents they agreed to slowly back him off of the 10 medications he was on. (He spent a lot of time in my home during this time) he has calmed down greatly and has now been able to focus and excel in school.

Some ex foster kids talk about the long term effects these medications have caused them, long after they have finally gotten off of the drugs. Some must continue taking different types of meds to help them deal with the after effects of the medications forced upon them in foster care, (all under the guise of being in their best interest).

Here’s one former foster child’s statement of what she had been through and how the medications affected her.

“I was living in Maryville, Tennessee and was 14 years old. I was depressed but I was a really quiet kid and a laid back type. These folks decided to start me on meds for my depression (a little red pill that I don’t know what it was) shortly after, I noticed I was feeling anxious and nervous. Then I noticed that I started having a short fuse when it came to my temper and it was more difficult to calm down. I told the group home owner this, but she wouldn’t have me taken off the meds.

I started spitting the meds into a paper Dixie cup they would give me water in to take my medications and crush the cup so no one saw. I started to feel normal again, I did that for a month before I was ratted out by another kid. Any way they took me to a doctor that put me on Paxil. The night they gave me that stuff, I was wired for sound and tried to play sumo wrestling with my roommate Donelle. The medication made me constipated and I felt overly psycho, again, no one would listen to me asking to be taken off the meds.

I also noticed I had more issues than usual on concentrating on my school work and I started being mean to others, really mean, as in hitting folks and yelling, it was like I was losing control. I found myself withdrawing because of it and crying my eyes out at every turn. That’s the same year I started having panic episodes. One day decided to ditch school and just go walking… I was told that I cussed out all of the group home staff but I do not remember it… Eric blankenship could tell you a lot about that. I was picked up by the police and taken back to the group home but then I was moved to a teen psych ward.

There at the psych ward they gave me a higher dose of Paxil and added Milloril to my meds and some pill they were telling me was a vitamin but I’m sure it was a tranquilizer because not long after taking it, I could barely hold my head up.

This went on for a month solid until a caseworker (a man) showed up to take me to my next placement. I was on those meds from foster home to foster home then one day I was taken to an all girl group home in Knoxville, Tennessee where shortly after I was abruptly changed from the Paxil and Millorill, to Prozac and Trazedone. The first time they gave me the Prozac, I was 15 years old and was being given 3 Prozac a day and my head always felt like I had a chunk of lead tied to it. Schooling was hard because it was a new place and I felt crazy out of my head. I hated everyone and everything.

I felt as if my mind was working overtime and I was suicidal because i could not calm down and in that same place I was fondled by one of the men staff workers when we went on a trip to the University of Tennessee Race Track. I would scream in the night in my sleep and I would be so nervous every day. I got defiant with the staff and would cuss this one lady in particular named Deiadra. She was a reasonably nice person but I got to where nothing mattered.

Till this very day, I am a nervous type person and I still have the panic episodes that started as a teenager, I have a very hard time coming down from any emotion whether it be anger, anxiety, joy, depression, fear, etc. I know it was because of the meds because prior to the meds, I was able to keep my emotions in check. I’m angry that this has to be this way, with me but this crap has forever changed me, along with all the being passed around like a dooby. It, all has an effect on me that, will never be normal again. I still consider myself a glitch ”

TN: Marine Tells of CPS Lies!

December 23, 2013 in CPS

I am going out on a limb here and asking if your site has any recommendations. I have been a victim of the corrupt Child Protection Services out of Knoxville, TN.

We have a baby...for awhile at least

We have a baby…for awhile at least!

I am an Active Duty Marine and have fought diligently to remain a part of my son’s life despite being a state away. Over the past few monthly visits while my son is in my care, he had been repeatedly stating that he is being sexually and physically abused either by his mother or by someone who his mother knows.

I informed CPS in Knoxville about this and after conducting a 13 minute interview, they determined nothing was wrong and sent him home. Being a concerned parent and believing what my son said had merit, the last time he came to visit I informed my command and they got NCIS and CPS in the northern VA area involved which resulted in him being interviewed by a forensic team from Walter Reed Medical Facility in Bethesda, MD.

After an extensive interview, my son displayed what they called a personality shift and displayed knowledge of explicit sexual content, all stemming from what he experiences in his mother’s care. Of course the staff and myself were concerned and they advised that I take him to Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC, where, after a short 20 minute evaluation, they admitted him into the psych ward (mind you, my son is only 5, so this, to them, was a big deal) stating he was suffering from severe trauma.

CPS and local law enforcement from northern VA and DC got with CPS in Knoxville and they were astonished and disgusted to see that he had been evaluated prior but for only 13 minutes, leaving little time for discoveries.

After being admitted for a few days, I was forced (due to a standing court order parenting plan from Blount County, TN) to return him to his mother’s care. CPS in Knoxville informed me that they wished for me to dropped him off into their custody for further evaluation (I believe they were upset that another state’s CPS was stating that there was indeed some sort of abuse going on in his mother’s home).

I did this even though my court order states I am to drop him off to his mother at a pre-designated place. I agreed, hoping that they would finally take into consideration what the other CPS offices had found. I dropped him off and, upon exiting the building, noticed that my son’s mother had already arrived but was parked behind the office with her vehicle slightly concealed. I drove my vehicle to the back of the parking lot and within 4 minutes, my son was being escorted out of the back of the building with his mother, in her custody.

Both women who were advising me that another interview was going to be conducted were there as well. I was extremely worried for the safety of my son and approached the women on foot with my cell phone’s camera recording the entire incident. I asked them if there indeed had been a follow-on interview because I believe 3-4 minutes was not sufficient time to conduct one.

They refused to answer any of my questions and instead called the Knoxville Police Department. Upon their arrival, I explained the situation to the police and they wrote down the report number but there were no citations written as there were no laws broken. The police and the CPS workers allowed my son to leave with the same woman who he alleged had been sexually abusing him!

I called CPS the following day and the CPS worker who had been involved with the exchange had stated that there was never to be a follow on investigating that they wanted to ensure the exchange of my son did not involve any violence from me. I do not have a record whatsoever of violence, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, anything (again, I’ve been in the Marines for over 10 years with an exceptional record).

CPS took it upon themselves to involve them in this exchange, lying to me that an interview was to be conducted and then attempting to push him out the backdoor without my knowledge. They lied and manipulated me into going against court orders and my gut instinct as a parent and involved themselves in my exchange.

Furthermore, since the incident, I have had zero contact with my son or his mother due to a restraining order she has gotten and I just recently found out, through the courts in northern VA, that CPS in Knoxville has issued an ex parte no contact order against me toward my son! I have done nothing wrong and now it seems like CPS in Knoxville has a vendetta against me!

Is there any assistance or recommendations you might have that could help me fight back at the corrupt system that is CPS?  I have recorded phone call conversations, emails, and videos of the incident all saved and archived for review. I’m in the process of seeking legal help but all the lawyers in the east TN area do not want to take my case because “CPS is against me!”

I am at a loss and fear for me son’s safety! And now, amongst the holiday season, all my court order visitation has been stripped due to CPS’ involvement! Please help!

Facebook Harassment Leads to Removal

April 11, 2013 in Child Protective Services, Florida, termination of parental rights, TPR

I have a daughter who was born on November 30, 2012, 15-weeks early weighing 1-lb 15 oz, after her release from the NICU she was readmitted into the hospital a few times for typical preemie issues. Since her birth we have had a page on Facebook “Reagans Place” that we have since unpublished for our families protection.

On March 16,2013, Reagan was readmitted to the hospital for feeding issues and failure to thrive after having a barium swallow study done at Wolfson Children’s Hospital on March 14, 2013. She was having an aversion to eating after the test like she was uncomfortable and since at this time she was at 6-lbs we could not afford for her to get dehydrated. Upon admission it was thought that she was uncomfortable because the barium has not passed yet so she was admitted on IV fluids and blood work and x rays were done showing the barium was still working its way through her.

Day One: in the hospital she still wasn’t eating she was on D10 with sodium and potassium, a Nasogastric tube was put in to force feeds but she threw them up, feeds were stopped so they could do a upper GI.

Day Two: the upper GI showed that she had re-flux she was put on medication, the hospital was giving her Tylenol as well because she was obviously uncomfortable she was still getting D10 with sodium and potassium and was barely eating, arching her back like she was in pain and screaming, not just for me but for nurses and doctors.

Day Three: March 18, 2013, Reagan was changed to D5 and still was refusing to eat I was getting scared that she had a lack of nutrition since her intake was so minimal and was assured she was okay, that we would force feed her through the Nasogastric tube. At around 6:00 pm, the doctor ordered a bolus of 30 ml of fluid which is about 1/6th of Reagans entire blood volume, lets remember she also had been getting fluid at 12 ml per hour for 3 days now. By 3:00 am on 3-19-2013, when they weighed her she had gained over 12 ounces and was turning purple.

I brought this concern up and was told it was gas and they must have weighed her wrong. She was still on fluid and still barely eating and obviously getting more uncomfortable and having bradycardia issues. Around 1:00 am on 3-20-2013, I called the doctor in worried Reagan looked very puffy and this doctor again said Reagan was gassy. How was my daughter gassy she wasn’t eating anything? At 3:00 am when they weighed her on 3-20-2013 she was up another 4 or 5 oz. I again questioned this and told it was of no concern!!

When the day doctor made rounds about 9:00 am on 3-20-2013, he asked me if I noticed how swollen Reagan was and I said yes and told him the night doctor told me it was all gas. This doctor sent her for tests and lab work and sure enough she was having some liver dysfunction and ascites. Her albumin levels were low according to lab work so she was given an albumin infusion and lasix and put on diuretics and over night Reagan lost over a pound and was back to a 6-lb baby and suddenly started eating like nobodies business. The doctors brought in specialists and ran all sorts of tests and the most I heard was from a genetics doctor, that Reagan had these same albumin issues in the NICU and he thinks its just something in her as a preemie that misfired when her body was stressed and lacking protein and had to much fluid. We posted all of this on her Facebook page as we updated her over 10-K followers daily through her journey.

Within hours a hate page was started attacking me called “Help Save Reagan from Her Mom” posting all sorts of legal information and more from my past. (I have screen shots of everything on the page.) I reported the page and followers reported the page and Facebook did nothing, except tell me them bullying me was violating no rules or laws. They went as far on that page to post the phone number to the hospital we were at and have people flood the hospital with calls that I must be poisoning Reagan. When they did not get the outcome they wanted from the hospital they launched an all out assault putting together a plan and posting all the information for people to make reports to DCF that Reagan was being poisoned be me. This all occurred on 3-22-2013 — Facebook still said they were violating no rules: (see Facebook dashboard below)

I then sent them the following email:

I would like you to know this is a page created to violently attack me and my children, they have taken pieces of court records, and photos from my Facebook and are exploiting me and my children and bullying and harassing our entire family. If Facebook can’t and won’t remove this page and ban these animals that are creating fake pages to do this I will be forced to file civil action against Facebook! What they are doing is against every rule you have on Facebook …. They are going as far as to use Facebook to file reports to DCF and to threaten my children.

How is this ok and how is this not bullying? They are using my property my intellectual property and bits and pieces of court records to constantly attack and harass me. People commit suicide for less then this! Understand that if Facebook allows this to continue I will be seeking a federal attorney to start proceedings against Facebook for civil damages to me and my family for allowing this to happen. Plenty of people, have reported this page for this attack and bullying and it needs to end. I will also take it to the media, I have screen shots of all of it and the decision by Facebook to allow this material to remain! Your own rules state:

Bullying and Harassment
Facebook does not tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow users to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but take action on all reports of abusive behavior directed at private individuals. Repeatedly targeting other users with unwanted friend requests or messages is a form of harassment.

Hate Speech
Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.

They are guilty of both of these actions and yet Facebook still thinks this page is not violating Facebook standards?

They have also violated both of these rules by publishing information including a hospital my sick daughter was in and encouraging people to call and say my daughter was being abused and also the same with DCF giving all my personal information:

Identity and Privacy
On Facebook people connect using their real names and identities. We ask that you refrain from publishing the personal information of others without their consent. Claiming to be another person, creating a false presence for an organization, or creating multiple accounts undermines community and violates Facebooks terms.

Intellectual Property
Before sharing content on Facebook, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights.

Again I strongly urge you to remove this page and ban them before I seek civil penalties against facebook!

Shauna Taylor

This was finally sent to them on April 7th. You may ask why it took so long to send this well here is why

When numerous people were allowed to continue bullying, stalking, and harassing my family through Facebook and personal information was allowed to be posted all these people were allowed to continuously call DCF and file reports that I was poisoning Reagans. Her doctors had NO concerns, her nurses had NO concerns, hospital social workers had NO concerns … after all a hospital social worker followed our family the entire 11 weeks Reagan was in the NICU where I sat by her side 15 hours a day every day. Yet a CPT, a child protection team by DCF was allowed to order very large volumes of tests on my daughter poking her and prodding her to see if she was in fact being poisoned.

EVERY single and I mean every single test came back clean.. When that was not enough because I have a past with Children services in California and Arizona that I have never hidden from and been very open about they decided to allege I was poisoning Reagan with iron because her iron level was 2 points higher then normal. They failed to mention to the courts that she had just had a infusion of albumin that is an iron binding product and raises blood iron serum levels.

My daughter was taken into custody and I have now not been allowed to see her for two weeks, no contact at all, it has been alleged to the judge that she was being poisoned even though her doctors are standing up for me saying that she should be home. No matter how much my state appointed attorney fights I have no chance at all because I have a past history. The state says they are going straight to terminate my parental rights and I will never see my daughter again because they are using my past without all facts against me.

And still Facebook is allowing this hate page to still do this! They keep the page up for 3 to 4 hours at a time and then it gets reported by hundred of people and the owners of the page remove the page for a few days and then come back to attack. Anyone who defends me then also gets CPS or DCF called on them alleging they belong to a cult on Facebook poisoning their children. Facebook tells me this is not bullying because I am not a teenager!

Just because I have a past does not mean my daughter was in harm if she was her doctors would have filed reports on me. Facebook is allowing people to use their site as a tool to hurt and destroy people and that is illegal.

I have taken this all to the FBI, and on 4-09-2013 met with Agent Everett out of the Jacksonville Florida Office:
FBI Jacksonville
6061 Gate Parkway
Jacksonville, FL 32256
Phone (904) 248-7000
Fax: (904) 248-7404
E-mail: Jacksonville@ic.fbi.gov

He was writing a report and giving it to the Agents who investigate and prosecute these criminal acts. He also advised a complaint be filed with www.ic3.gov and that was done on 4-9-2013 as well.

I went further and created a petition at Change.org to maybe make a difference in this so DCF cant just remove kids for life from your past or for hearsay from people who don’t even know you in an attempt to bring Reagan home.

State of Florida, Baker County Courts, DCF: Return Reagan Taylor to her parents where she belongs

I have been sent emails from the case worker from DCF that Reagan is having all the same issues in custody and pictures of her where she is scared afraid not happy and not safe. These animals on Facebook making malicious and false calls have harmed my baby and Facebook should be held accountable for allowing bullying in this magnitude or any magnitude for that matter.

I know you can’t help get my daughter back but maybe you can help hold Facebook accountable for what they allow people to do and the damage they allow people to cause to others, if I was not mentally stable and if I didnt have thousands of amazing people standing behind me this could very well have led to suicide.
