Names of dead children invoked at hearing to reform DCF – Florida – MiamiHerald.com. (with video of blah, blah, blah)

What lies. I normally would say what these people say is “inaccurate”, but all of their “concerns” and “ideas” were just lies. The workers are still asking questions they learned (allegedly) in their initial training. And, they are asking the questions to administrators who are not directly involved with the day-to-day operations of deciding whether or not to remove a child. Here is a fact for those who care, these people decided whether or not to remove children by having teleconference calls with a unit comprised of the “doctor”, the “case manager”, the “worker”, a few other morons, and they review reports, a ton of them — most of which are inaccurate to begin with (remember workers don’t even go to the homes sometimes or speak to witnesses) and make decision to remove children in that manner. The reports will even have the wrong description of a child, such as the wrong sex. THAT, is how this happens. Confirmed!

Let’s not forget DCF’s Missing Children, where the body counts just might go up. http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/missingkids/ (143 Missing Children – Currently).

Strange behavior…

I am cleaning up my bedroom that currently looks like a poorly organized law office, full of documents, cds, usbs, printouts that are marked up with highlighters and post it notes.  As I go through some of the stuff, I can’t avoid the obvious.  What an unnecessary and vicious attack imposed on my family, especially my child!

I hope some of my observations from pre-kidnapping of my child by the State of Florida are eye-openers for other parents.  Prevention is key.  However, you need awareness first in order to prevent.

Here are some of the things I noticed about my child’s behavior that I think parents/guardians should be on the lookout for.  It’s not stuff the ordinary person walks around knowing since most of us don’t think this can happen to our children:

(The period of time the below behaviors took place in, approx. Jan-July 2009. This occurred before she was removed from my home, and placed to live with the alleged sex offender, a non-relative, in the home he shared with my child’s father.  My child had been spending court-approved overnights with the father hence his contact.)

1) We live in Florida.  In the middle of Summer, insisting on wearing layers and more layers of clothing.

2) Stating, “I’m pushing”, while she is actually holding in her stools.  Saying she is “afraid” of going potty.

3) Urinary Tract Infections.

4) Sexualized behavior you wouldn’t expect a young child to know (i.e. intense kissing, masturbation, attempting to insert objects to genitals-vagina/anus).  Undressing dolls and having their genitals touch in “play”.

5) Violent tantrum outbursts (i.e. drawing “the monster” and stabbing the drawing with the pencil then transferring the anger toward the nearest person).

6) Refusing to be assisted with pull-up cleaning by day school staff, insisting only mother can help.  Stating to cleaning staff and other caregivers “are you going to hurt me?” as indicator of why child refuses help.

7) Sudden behavior change reported by school to you (i.e. biting children, throwing chairs).

8 Suddenly afraid of going to the father’s house (had to literally be buckled down by father when he picked child up for visitation).  At other times, she cried when she stated she did not want to leave school.  Usually on a Friday, when she knew it was time to see “daddy” on Saturday.

9) Sudden increase in clingyness and fear of being anywhere without mother present.  (My child had two violent outbursts at the Broward County Sexual Assault Treatment Center (SATC) , one in which the organization across the street – Broward County’s Children Home Society – had to call the SATC to inquire about “the child screaming” right outside their entrance.  Of course, the SATC did not note this critical example of something that deems more questioning, in spite of the outbursts occurring directly in front of the eyes of Counselor, Emily Lawler and Child Protection Team worker, Lucia Zanabria.)

10) Self depreciative comments: “I am an ugly monster, I am a bad girl, I am dirty, I am sick, you hate me…”

11) Changing clothing/panties every 5 minutes, stating “I’m dirty, I’m dirty”.

12) Sudden regression in potty-training.  I’ve read that children tend to get fully potty-trained at a slower pace in day school/care than children who are being taken care of at home.  But the workers at my daughter’s day school and I worked really well together in trying to get this going.  Who doesn’t want to save the very expensive weekly expense of wipeys and pull-ups, if possible?  So we got my child to work on wearing panties, although with accidents, but making progress.  Why did she all of a sudden regress to her pull-ups?  There were several of us at work with this, yet we couldn’t stop the accidents’ frequency from increasing.

(As of February 2011, pleased to report child is significantly more in control of her anger, thanks to professional therapeutic assistance.  However, there is a lot more time and work needed.)

New Game! “Assuming the Lawler”…

I am officially creating a game called “Assuming the Lawler”. It is played this way: 1) Gather a few of your closest friends, preferably independent parents with the night off, 2) Have everyone chip in toward a good bottle of vodka or whiskey, your choice, 3) Read through Emily Lawler’s deposition and take a shot each time an “assumption” is made. 5) Total them up and see who found the most. By the time you finish the game, you should all be sitting in your own vomit.

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…
