"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." --- Winston Churchill

i've hidden where i live now - we moved secretly, my child and i, so that's the main reason why i want that screened. her birth father, a man who beat me and shook her, tried to kidnap her (only to hurt me, as he said) after he signed over his rights 8 years ago now. i live petrified that he or some other nightmare of a person will find us and try to hurt us again.

thank you so much. i just thought i would explain why i asked for it to be screened.

Hi, I just joined live journal and am looking to add friends.
I read about your son Isaac and his sister on MDC forum and I can't stop thinking about it. It breaks my heart! As a mother, I can't imagine the pain you have suffered. My prayers are with you and your family. I added you as a friend, I hope you don't mind, and I hope you will add me too.


Sorry Jen!

Hey Jennifer.. Don't know if you remember me.. my user name on here use to be xchocaholicx and you had helped me through a hard time when cps in Hawaii had taken my child away from me. I wanted to thank you for all your support and wanted to offer mine back to you. I am back in Michigan now and got the newspaper with the article about Isaac and I am so sorry.. I know my apologies won't bring him back but I am here if you need me. He was a beautiful baby just like all of your beautiful children and reading about him makes me really consider becoming a social worker.. but not the ones against the REAL parents.. but one who watches over the foster families in our fucked up system.. I really hope you are doing well and if you need to talk at all you can reach me on here or email me at redinhawaii06@excite.com
Best Wishes

I also wanted to let you know that my son Toby is being officially adopted by the family he was with when we first started talking and he is in a really good home thankfully and still remains in Hawaii til 2008 when his family will be retiring from the Navy and moving to NY. I will be able to see him again then if I can't afford to fly back to Hawaii.. They agreed to let me stay in his life. I am thankful for that and thought you might like to hear that. On another note of hope I did give birth to another baby boy a year ago January 11th by my current fiance and after fighting the system for the first 10 months of his life I have sole legal and physical custody. They finally see me as a good parent and I could have fought for my other little boy but he was so happy where he was so in my heart I thought he was best off there.. so I hope this gives you hope for your future that not everything is going to end up bad.. I know you do handle everything with much grace but even the strongest of us lose hope and I never want you to lose hope. Just do what you gotta do and do it proudly!

I know you and I have never been 'friends' and well, we don't really see eye to eye on things but I heard about Issac and read the story in the Detroit Free Press, my heart breaks for you. I couldn't imagine the horrors you've been through.
Even when i thought you were a massive bitch (to other people) I always thought you were hella-witty and very funny. I know there has been alot of drama surrounding you IRL and on LJ - but if you ever need someone else to listen, or another signature on a petition... I'll be the first in line.

I still can't believe all that you have gone through. I hope that Issacs death has actually shed some light on the terrible places these children are dropped off at.
You, among others, have made me want to get into social services to stop things like this. It breaks my heart to know people have an inkling on whats going on and don't do a damn thing to change or rectify it.
While I don't think all CPS calls are bad, I have had a few neighbors that needed to have their children taken (trust me, these are very viable reasons) the stories you have shared and stories I have read about foster homes scared me away from calling children services - where these children end up could be worse.
I'm sorry for the things you have gone through, and are still going through...

I have cried for your son, for your family, and for you.


::now you may snark the hell out of me, just like the good old day:: ;-)

I tell ya, I'm no fun any more. No time for more of 'teh drama', particularly on LJ. Too much 'real life' BS to deal with.

Thank you for reaching out to me about Isaac. He was such a darling boy, and so many people have felt his loss.

Unfortunately, until the funding model to CPS is reversed, children will continue to be taken unnecessarily and be abused or worse in placements. That's what I've been working to educate people about for years now. The money all goes to taking kids away and there are almost no punishments for people who harm children while they are 'in care'...if the parents don't do it apparently it doesn't matter.

After all, Emma and Isaac were both abused for months before Isaac was murdered and no one would do a darn thing about it. We even reported it to multiple sources...nothing was done.

CPS is a train wreck. It's a shame we can't rely on CPS to protect children who need protecting...it really is.

P.S. Still a massive bitch ;) I've always tended to save it for those who needed it though...

Hi, I've been following your story since I heard about it last August... I try to check in periodically to see if there's anything new on the case. I was glad to see that the foster mother was finally charged in Isaac's death. About damn time. Are you any closer to getting your other younger children back? You and your family are in my prayers, and I hope you won't mind if I add you as a friend.

Hi Jennifer.
My name is Jemma and I live in N.ireland. I came across your journal and website a couple of years ago and then landed on your journal again before christmas. I was so very sorry to read about your son. I can't imagine the extent of your heart break. Anyway, i found myself thinking about you today (yeah weird, i don't even know you, you have never heard of me =\ ) and wondering how your fight for your kids was going. I would love to be added to your journal. If not, i wish you all the best and will be hoping you get your happy ending.

Hey Jen - I was stopping by your userinfo looking for a poem that (I thought) you used to have there (The "go away cobwebs" one). Anyway, I wanted you to know I was thinking of you so I thought I'd say hi.

Hi =)

Um. Even though you guys never ended up emailing me back, I was wondering if I could be added, since we have similar situations?

As an update for you, my kids are leaving "foster care" tomorrow, and entering "kinship care" which, from my experience with that, is MUCH easier to retrieve them from. So, I am pretty stoked.

I pray for you daily, Jenn, you and all your children. I feel that even when people are different religions (not sure if we are or not) that any prayer is good. *hugs*

While viewing your userinfo I noticed your a lactation consultant. I wanted to know how you got into that? I'm currently going to school to pursue a career in nursing with labor and delivery, but lactation consultant is something i've been hearing a lot about and wanted to know more about . . . you can also email me @ butterfly110201@aol.com

I added you as a friend. Hope you don't mind. I figured it would save on Kim's inbox a little. I added you once a long time and you didn't reciprocate but with everything I read on your web page, I can't say I blame you a bit. It's not like you really knew who I was, beyond saying I was a friend of Kim and Tangy. lol
Anyway, if you don't add me back, I completely understand. One can never be too careful. The offer is there though. :)
