“If it could happen to us, it could happen to anyone,” says savvy Virginia Mom, after social service worker told her not to force her teenager to attend church.
My name is Stephanie. I am a member of the Budget Homemaking group. I was looking at the messages and saw you were the editor of kidjacked. I could not believe it!! This site was such a blessing to my husband and I recently.
I never in my life thought I would need it. My teen daughter has been in such rebellion the last 2 years. When we would not let her go somewhere one day she began to hit my husband who told her to sit on the porch she got very angry and accused my husband of pushing her off of our 3-step porch.
She called the police. We thought they would see it for what it was. The police pressed charges on my husband!! We were shocked. We spent over $2,000 on an attorney. He was found not guilty BUT then came social services. They told us we put her on restriction too much. They told us not to force her to go to church ect., ect.
I was soooo angry! I wrote our senator. Who in turn called the social services director in D.C and finally the case was closed. It was a nightmare.
We have 2 other children who are doing great. I have never felt such a lack of confidence in the justice system. Anyway, I know I have rambled, your website was a Godsend. It was the only website we found who knew good parents were targeted by social services. If it could happen to us it could happen to ANYONE. Thanks for your hard work! Please know it is helping many!
