LOST CHILDREN! Florida’s Department of Children and Families / the children they have lost.

Yes, let’s not use the language the web site uses.  It really downplays how serious this matter is.  Below is a copy/paste of the DCF’s web site regarding this “special initiative”:

  • If you have information on any of these missing children, please notify local law enforcement.
  • The above is a partial listing of children missing from their current placements. Prior to listing any children on this web site the Department must receive approval from the court for release of information. In addition, the Department and its community partners are locating many of the children reported missing. As a result, this list may include children who have been located within the past week .
  • Additional information on these children may be found on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement web site.
  • Information regarding the Department’s efforts to locate these children may be requested by calling (850) 410-8543 or writing to the Missing Children Florida Department of Children and Families, 1317 Winewood Blvd, Building 1, Room 206E, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0700.

**Good luck calling the Tallahassee office for information about what they are doing to find these children they have lost.  I’ve been trying since September of 2009 (and wont’ stop trying).

For all children,

A Thanksgiving “Thank You”

A late “Thank you” in acknowledgment of Thanksgiving goes out to all my angels. My Internet was out for most of Friday and Saturday so it wasn’t possible to publicly express my deepest gratitude to those who helped sustain me through my dependency trial in the most timely manner. My dependency trial felt more like a shared trial though, than solo. It is refreshing to know that there are many intelligent people out there, who are not necessarily attorneys or judges, that use common sense and strong analytical skills to really help break down a legal case.

On Thanksgiving I reflected very much on last year’s very lonely holiday. Last year, my home was quiet and I could only pray that my child was alive. I can totally feel the pain that other parents in similar, unfortunate situations are enduring. PLEASE, hang in there! If you are innocent of false allegations I pray you don’t give up. Yes, of course it is easier for me to say now that my child is back home, but in the same way I urge you today (and tomorrow) to fight for your child’s freedom, I also had strangers encourage me during my nightmare.

I read a Facebook post recently on suicidal tendencies of parents going through dependency trials all over the world. Suicide is something that I am certain some folks may contemplate, given the horrific feelings one may acquire during traumatic removal/kidnapping of your child/children. I tell you this, go out with a bang if you are going to exit. Don’t make it easy for them. I am not saying go out and hurt anyone, but go out and fight with all your might! If you love your child, I don’t need to tell you to never give up, you should have that attitude from the get-go. But if anything I hope a few of my written words will accidentally run across your computer screen and help bring you back into focus of what is important…your angel! Dependency court, custody battle, cross-border kidnapping, whatever it is, you must not give up. If you have the courage to fight for your child, your child will have the courage to endure because you are blood.

If you think exiting this world is going to make the pain go away you are wrong. You will increase the pain of your child that was counting on you. Prepare, read, speak up, you have nothing to be ashamed of if you haven’t done anything wrong. You know who you are and your child does too. Don’t become what they want you to become when they set you up in their environment, the one where you are the bad guy. The epidemic of failed child protection practices has reached such a low point that you are guaranteed to run into another person that shares your pain. Connect with him/her. Encourage each other, and keep in the fight.

I am thankful that I have an opportunity to speak up for what happened to my family and to other families that I now call friends. I have the privilege of connecting with some of you as a result of it. I am happy to feel a responsibility to remind everyone that we share a duty to protect all of OUR children. And boy, am I blessed to have held my child in my arms this holiday and weep because of pure adoration and appreciation. To me, it was a miracle. I still can’t believe it sometimes when I see her sleeping in her bedroom. I remember walking in to an empty bedroom every night of a ten-month period and cry myself to sleep. I know some of you going through similar situations do the same. I weep with you because I just cannot fully enjoy myself with these precious moments knowing you are suffering. Everything has changed.

I place my hand over this blog entry and I pray that you are blessed with an everlasting fire in your spirit to do what is right for your children. I pray that you will take care of yourself properly so that you come in to your next hearing with your head held high, bearing the Full Armor of God, the power of truth on your side, and the humility to listen and speak only that which is righteous.

I am thankful that God has chosen you, the warrior guardian, to fight for your child/children. Do the right thing.

For all children, Lynn Moscoso

Results of Emergency Hearing – Oct. 26 – Victory for my daughter!

I really wanted to write something yesterday, but my chest felt so heavy and my mind was in a daze. I needed to catch up with God first and determine where I was standing. Even as I write this blog entry, I can’t stop the thought process. The best way I can describe my current state is through a cliché. Something like, it is similar to waking up from a nightmare that is so real that you actually feel physical pain and have a need to check your body for actual injury.

The child’s father did not show, as predicted, to the rescheduled emergency hearing (he didn’t show to the prior either) yesterday. Judge Randi Boven allowed him to appear by phone. The child’s father provided inaccurate statements a couple times. He also withheld relevant information which to me is the definition of a “lie”. I was given the opportunity to politely correct the information he provided though.

Yesterday’s determination is that my child will not go to the “ugly house” any more.

The importance of yesterday, October 26, 2010, ending at approximately 4:30 PM:

Since April 2009, all I asked for (begged for) was that my child not be forced to go to a house where she alleged sexual abuse had occurred. Like any sensible person, I needed more information. Plus, I did not know who this “Leo” person was. I certainly did not know anyone with that name.

Think about this, please. For just a moment, picture a calendar. Then, visualize counting the days, beginning with April 17, 2009 all the way through October 16, 2010, that is exactly 544 days and sleepless nights. Now imagine that for almost ten (10) months of that time your child was exactly in the place she begged you not to let her go and to make matters worse, seven (7) of those ten (10) months in which you had absolutely no contact with your child and left at the mercy of incompetent reporters updating you on your child’s “progress and well-being”.

Imagine workers telling you they “visit the house once per week” and meet with the child and she “appears” happy” and is “adjusting”. But, they also tell you that when they visit the child the alleged perpetrator is “not in the house”, or “outside” in the yard. Imagine you find out through your own child that she was ill because no one thought it was important enough to tell you your daughter had a lung infection that according to medical practitioners may be caused by second-hand smoke. Imagine you are the one that informs the workers that the alleged perpetrator smokes. Well, I suppose you can’t expect workers who are responsible for your child to know what kind of people are really holding your child.

Imagine the child’s father tells workers he is not leaving the child alone and then you find out through recently delivered documentation and more of your own discoveries that the father has continuously lied to authorities and to the court. The father was working the whole time, including weekends, leaving your child alone with the alleged perpetrator and other, non-relatives with direct relationships to the alleged perpetrator. I thought the whole time there were agencies ensuring and confirming the father’s claims. Actually, no, I always knew they were not doing their work properly.

It’s just stuff like that. Tons of stuff like that that including the need to be on alert, documenting everything, archiving matters well into your memory, making difficult decisions regarding who to trust. Never-ending lingering in your mind while you are awake, in your dreams, in your nightmares, about your child, your trial, the non-existent justice system.

The importance of yesterday is that my child’s right to be protected from a dangerous person has been recognized. Perhaps not in the most clear and concise manner, but at least it is a significant milestone. Does that mean dangers are completely removed? Absolutely NOT! What it means is that there is enough risk for workers to have made a request to the father to move from the alleged abuser’s house and find safe housing for himself and his daughter. Unfortunately, what it also means is that if this was decided yesterday, why did it take so long for a mother’s sensible request (to stop her child from going to an alleged abuser’s house) to be granted instead of creating so many fallacies that resulted in so much pain, suffering and trauma to a decent, peaceful, loving American family, not to mention huge bills to Florida residents.

In the words of Tonya Craft, who was aquitted of false allegations against her person only three days before my trial also ended, “NOBODY WINS”. My daughter coming home after May 14, 2010 was NOT a win. My daughter’s father being officially told he will not see his daughter unsupervised until he moves out of that house is not a win. This is about my child’s right to freedom from abuse and about our Constitutional rights having been ridiculously violated.

Over a year ago when I naively believed that these types of “institutional” errors fixed themselves, I would have imagined yesterday as a day in which I’d finally be able to get a good night’s rest; it didn’t turn out that way. I suppose the issue now is that my family’s misfortune has opened my eyes to the “system”, the “secret courts” (which is how I refer to dependency court), and the broken child welfare system. So, in a strange way, there is yet another trial in my life now. However, this time it is not a trial against me. Instead, I am the one putting the child welfare system on trial. It is no longer about my child and my family. This is about ALL children and families.

And, to my dear daughter, I cannot predict what trials and tribulations are still to come although I can imagine somewhat. Meantime, my message to you today: Some of our yesterday was taken away, and “no”, that is not right. But today, I dedicate to you the rest of tomorrow that is partially returned to you, until the time comes for you to take control of your own life fully and choose the direction you will take in your great adventure. May you always remember your mother as a person that loves God, you, her country and the truth so much that she finds in it the strength and hope to keep fighting for our right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” – our God-given rights. May you discover, as your mother has, that the truth, although sometimes painful, will set you free. Above all, may your spirit always burn with the Lord’s fire. -Love, Mommy.

BSO Arrests Broward County employee for possession of child porn images in Cooper City, FL

http://cbs4.com/local/william.long.james.2.1981192.html

William James Long arrested.

Heading to court to protect my child from another Cooper City, FL man that is not William James Long. I wonder if his IP address shows up on this file sharing network. A map shows their addresses are about one mile from each other. Interesting and disturbing at the same time.

To the officers and South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children professionals that worked on this project — GOOD JOB! Thank you, Thank you!

Computer forensics is such an incredible field. Given the authority through the courts, it is scary to think about all of the horrific things these professionals are capable of finding. As an ex-employee of Broward County Information Technology, I was fortunate to have learned a lot from my team regarding this area.

I was not able to confirm personally if William Long James actually works for Broward County, specifically for Fleet Services as is stated in this linked article. If he does, I would like to know whether or not he works in a technology capacity. Looking forward to learning more about the facts related to this case as it develops.

Results of Oct. 15 hearing…

My child’s sperm donor did not show to today’s. Not surprising though. He didn’t respond immediately to my phone calls or text messages from the court room. He did, however, respond this afternoon, via text, with a “can’t pick her up” this weekend. Well, my child gets a lucky break of having to go to a house where sexual abuse may be still be going on, at least for the next two weeks. I can’t tell if what my daughter is reporting now about abuse is about present abuse, or the past. That is for the professionals to determine. Meantime, I’ve always said the truth comes out one way or the other; and when it is least expected. (Spiritual credit: Notice how I was working out the human plan while the spiritual plan was being completed by God in the background. Things did not turn out the my way, they turned out in His way.)

The hearing went exactly as I expected. The judge had to be mindful of the “missing” respondent’s rights; I dig it. But, if it had been me missing, I have a feeling I would have had a warrant issued on my person. That’s just my feelings based on the witch hunt I recently endured. The judge suggested that if I felt enough concern, I should contact the DCF. I did tell Judge Aramony that that will only result in a local contracted BSO Child Protection Team worker to once again show up to the my house to do nothing (or to be specific, check to see if my refrigerator has enough food). What a waste of taxpayer money!

Thank you to all of my friends for your prayers today. I am certain they are working. All in His time, not ours.

Heading to court to protect my child…Oct. 15

Aside from the historical accounts my child provided to officials in April 2009, I am armed with a more recent June 2010 detective report with some disturbing statements (I have not heard or seen the recording of my daughter’s statements to Broward Sheriff’s Office Special Victims’ Unit in June 2010.) and a letter of concern finding sexual abuse indicators from my child’s therapist. Will that be enough, or do they insist on a tragedy that could be prevented? I am transferring over the risk to Judge Susan Aramony of the 17th Circuit Judicial Court in Broward County. Also, I am questioning what was allowed to happen to my daughter during the almost ten months I was kept from protecting her while she lived in the house with the alleged sexual abuser. Here’s hoping a RobeProbe ratings are not accurate. From personal experience, I find more truth through the Internet then through official narratives from government. At least I won’t be running into Billy Don Belter any longer.

DCF lost their fabricated case against me; however, the damage has been done.

(This blog is from May 14, 2010 with some edits.) (Please be patient while I learn my way around WordPress.)

I wanted to share some thoughts with you before I fully charge on this project.

In the next few weeks, I will be reviewing and organizing what I believe are the most critical documents presented in my trial. I would like to post them publicly for citizens to review and learn from. I think people will find some common themes in the methods used by the DCF and related agencies to remove children without a significant foundation of facts. Constitutional rights are being violated and no one is exempt from the chances of falling into the dependency trap. I’d like to make these documents available for your review and help provide and an overall reality check on what is truly going on in the dependency court and child welfare system. There is a real-life story that takes place in a period of almost a year, so it will take some time to distribute this information in its most accurate and beneficial form, but it will happen.

I heard from various attorneys the same statement, “once you are caught in the child welfare system, it is hard to get out. I believe my case is unique for the following reason. I was not a parent accused from the get-go. I was a parent who reported a crime, or a “possible” crime, that was not followed through. Then, a completely new fabricated document was creatively developed against me, by the State-contracted workers that I reported to the State of Florida as “non-responsive”. The other aspect of my case that is unique is that the State of Florida placed my child in temporary custody of her father who lives with the person that my child said had hurt her in a sexual manner. This is pure negligence. To this day, the investigating authorities have not criminally interviewed the alleged perpetrator. The courts have put in “protection” clauses into court orders, before and after my trial which are ridiculous given the fact that the child spent almost ten (10) months living in that home with that man. Even now after my trial, my daughter will need to spend (currently) one overnight in that home every other week. Like Tonya Craft, there is still “family” court left to deal with. Unlike criminal and dependency courts, you do not get public counsel. You are left to fend after a traumatic ordeal. Where is the justice in the justice “system”?

The best I can do to heal and cope with the trauma experienced by all my loved ones and dear friends is to be active in getting the word out to you.

More to come…For all children,

Police said there was no “Leo” in the house…there was.

Your child tells you someone named “Leo” hurt her butt. What do you do?

It would be interesting to know your answer on a personal basis.

However, police told this child’s mother that there was no one by that name living in the home where the alleged sexual abuse may have occurred. Days later, the mother drove by with a friend and wrote down some license plates. The mother ran the license plates through an Internet detective agency for a total of $38.00.

She found “Leo”. Reporting it to the police did not help though. The facts are, the police never did a thing. It was not until two months later that police visited the home where the alleged perpetrator resided. This late response only came because of the mother’s nonstop complaints about the police not investigating this matter immediately.

Original police reports demonstrate that the detective did not acknowledge a “Leo”. Additionally, there are several faxes that were sent to the DCF telling them that “child” was in danger. None of those faxes have been presented in any discovery provided by the State Attorney’s office relative to “child’s” open case.

Some thoughts on death of baby Angeliah Duncan…

Wonder how it is that children like Angeliah Duncan die in the child welfare system?

Here is a possible answer.

Dr. John Wright, Director of the Broward County Child Protection Team located within the Sexual Abuse Treatment Center (SATC) sent Angeliah home although upon examination he found injuries to her head. She was killed soon after. This same doctor now demonstrates the thought process, or lack thereof, that takes place in the minds of state-contracted doctors within the child welfare system and that are making decision about our children.

The State of Florida is in the business of “crystal-ball gazing”.

The State of Florida blindly approves and signs off on recommendations made by state contracted doctors regarding vulnerable children, using “hypothetical” analysis. These children are often left or placed in harms way, are lost in foster care systems, and sometimes die.

Dr. John Wright used this “hypothetical” analysis recently in a Broward County court dependency hearing. For hours on end, Dr. Wright hypothesized over the mental state of a woman he had met briefly for a few minutes (length of time stated by doctor himself as twenty minutes; mother counters it was about ten minutes). This hypothesis, or poor attempt at a form of diagnosis in writing, was put in a report that he signed off on and was later signed off on by the State of Florida. Specifically, the report stated the mother suffered from a “mental condition”, never specifying a diagnosis. When Dr. Wright attempted to diagnose the mother during his interrogation seeing no other alternative, he admitted to doing so based on the child’s medical history. On closer examination, the doctor admitted to not having reviewed critical medical documents related to the child that changed drastically his original assumptions on the mother’s reasons for taking actions as she did. The doctor added that he did not have access to these additional critical documents, although he was working closely with the investigators who did have access to them. He added that it was not his job to get those documents. It is important to note that Dr. Wright is a state-contracted “pediatric” doctor, not an adult psychologist or similar.

This unfounded and incomplete report, along with malicious intent on the part of a Broward Sheriff’s Office sexual abuse unit detective and child protection team investigator, led to a traumatic removal of a female child from her home.

A warrantless entry was made in the home of the mother during the very late hours of Friday, July 31, 2009. Court documents presented by Dr. Wright and the Broward Sheriff’s Office were, until recently, the only documents presented to the State Attorney’s office and the court system who jointly signed off on this act.

In spite of the obvious constitutional rights violations and erroneous reports, the 17th judicial circuit court continues to hear this case going into month #6 of this parental nightmare. You, citizen, are funding this by the way.

More “hypothesizing” in an American court room is expected. Additional information to follow…
