Quotes from Parents and Other Adults

These quotes are from real people, people like you and me, mothers, fathers people who love their children.  People whose children have been harmed and many who have children in harm's way as you read this.  This is a tragedy and this does not have to be.

For every quote here, there are thousands of other parents feeling the same pain.  for those of you fortunate enough to have your children with you than please give a moment of silent thanks and take the time to realize how very fortunate you are.

We have read and research these parents and feel that they tell the truth.
they are very sincere and only want what all good parents want, a safe and good childhood.

Many of them are victims themselves but they don't whine about themselves.  They seek justice and protection for the children.  However, protection is their main concern.

Yes, it is about the children but we feel that the parents are also very important.  They know what is happening, they fear, they yearn for their children.  These are mothers and fathers who give up everything for their children even in many cases their freedom.  Even their own parents (the grandparents) have given up homes, finances, retirements and their very freedom to try often in vain to protect the children.

Please understand that on some, the names have been removed or in some cases specific dates or other possible identifying facts removed as we are dealing with real fear and real danger.  Many parents have lost custody for simple telling the truth and/or seeking help. 

Please let us do our small part and try to help.  Educate and legislate. 

.....  I have done everything possible to get some fairness on my case - except hire another atty and I can't afford that and it probably would get me nowhere as I did have attorneys in the past.  Appeals, Request for Review, Oversight committee (branch of the supreme court)  AAAAHHHHH!  I finally had to give up or go to jail (contempt of court) if I continued pursuing my case.  (See my response
I contacted Representatives, Senators, newspapers, tv stations, etc.  No help anywhere.  I had to stop, as I do not want to go to jail as I have other kids with me.  But I just cant believe the court can take all rights to my child away without any allegations of anything against me.  It is unbelievable.

Yes there are strangers who molest our kids but they account for only 5% of the incidences. 95 times out of a 100 the offenses are done by dads, and uncles, and grandfathers, and often by our religious ministers. In a word, the real crime we need to address is INCEST. Wow! what a rude awakening! And why I asked was no one speaking up, how is such a terrible secret kept by so many of us? Why is nothing said? Nothing done? Why are lawmakers ignoring the facts.

After all The U.S. Department of Justice has published this information, its right on their web site for heaven's sake!

My little girls told me in 1999 that their father was molesting them. Medical and mental health experts confirmed the abuse. And what did Georgia State officials do? Against the girls' wishes, they took them from me and gave them to their father.

Because I kept insisting that the Court protect them, the Cobb County, Georgia Superior Court punished me: I have not been allowed to see or talk to my girls since September 2000.

Wendy Titleman  she has not seen her children since 2000.  No one from her family is allowed to see or speak with the children. 

...I Hope and Pray that the
lives of our dear children are filled with healthier my situation....I am always filled with worry...this has been going on for several years and it is incredibly stressful....many sleepless
nights...I have become a super insomniac.... 

I had to keep sending my son until he ended up with a head injury, they stopped visitation for ( 18 months til last hearing)  and he is still being put through this reunification.

At the hearing , although my ex-husband was found to be abusive in front of my child even after all the protective orders, and findings of contempt of orders by him. I was accused of being covertly alienating and the judge threatened to terminate my rights as well as my ex-husbands.

I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, your neighbor, your co-worker and or friend. I am only one of 'thousands' of Battered Mothers and  battered children struggling daily to keep our children safe ourselves alive. Many have not survived. I dedicate this domain to ALL my many sisters-and all our children, those who have fallen and those who still stand, being ‘brutalized’ daily, weekly, year after year- by a system that is supposed to protect, the Courts continue to ‘punish’ battered mothers and our battered children. United we carry forward the unheard cries of our children.

We are Silenced no more.

A mother who collasped as she tried to stand when told by the judge that her daughter age 4 had to be given to the father the child said molested her , "I can"t, I just can't

A father upset that his son was molested by an older child and none was doing anything about it,  "I can't believe the system.  My son is just a little boy and did nothing wrong and he was molested and no one is doing anything about it."

I love my daughter, Rachel, with all of my heart and soul. My hope and prayer is that my precious daughter will always know how very much I will always love her and how desperately I miss her.   kRISTIN HANSON

"I had a choice of breaking two lawsI could either knowingly put my child in danger, or I could break another law and protect him. And that's the one I chose to do."
Suzanne DeWalt  Texas  in prison for parental kidnapping, the child is in the father's sole custody

My ex was more abusive then I even realized.  It seems no matter what i was in the wrong, first i am condemned because he is abusive and make as though I permitted it even though I was  doing everything in my power to get away. 
When I left that day I never came back except to get my childrens things.  He refused to give them to me and kept all the stuff i had collected since my first son was born.  I never saw any of it again, but my children were safe
