Subject: my story never seems to end

We the disabled parents



A proud member of phenomenal women
I am a 35 year old disabled mother with 3 ADHD ,wonderful, children.We live in the Comox Valley in BC,Canada. I have a tracheotomy,which is a tube in my throat which helps me breathe at night,and ataxia which effects my balance.I and my children have been harassed by the Ministry for Children and Family Development for years.My children were formally apprehended March 28 2000. I was told by social services that they felt I was unfit to care for my children. I do not drink nor do I take drugs, I don't even smoke. Since my first child was born, I have been dealing with the Ministry for Children and Family Development.I have had many rude interruptions and ubrupte cruel actions done to my family by MCFD over the years.I have had a 48 page parental accessment done by a psychologist,who is also a ex-social worker.The psychlogist was frustrated by the wrongly created situation created by the MCFD.The accessment was argumentative and comparatively opposite to the 2 short accessments done by a MCFD psychologist. The accessments done by the MCFD psychologist were very untrue and basically said I was very unfit.I have had 3 lawyers that have agreed that this was a case of harassment and descrimination.The MCFD will never admit to that and will always justify themselves.I have seen and talked with other disabled parents,who are and have been treated just as badly by MCFD. I am not only trying to help myself,but other disabled parents. I have been fighting this fight since April of 2000,in the courts. Last time I was in court,during November 26 to 28 of 2001, the judge seemed sympathetic to my case. My custody case is probably going to hopefully finnish up on Febuary 26,27 of 2002.I went to court on those fore mentioned dates.I regained custody of my twins, under a 6 month supervision order.Unforeunately I did not regain custody of my oldest son.But the judge did say I could appeal next year. Even though I regained custody Febuary 27,02 the boys weren't returned home, by MCFD, till March 18,02.My mother died March 17,02. I had to move us to a better location,closer to a new school, on April 5,02. I recieved NO help,from MCFD till April 12,02. Even though it was ordered that assistances started upon the twins return home,by the judge and MCFD Febuary 27,02.The courts decided to put my children's father and grandfather on the stand so they could have a chance to speak. This did further help my case against the MCFD.We as disabled parents need to be heard and respected by government and society.SO PLEASE SPEAK UP! Well it happened again. the boys got apprehended again last night,June 1,2002.After the social worker and police officer did a search on a loving,clean,safe,secure home and even though I and a friend looked for them,after which I phoned 911, 40-45 minutes later. 911 told me they were found them a couple blocks from my house.They got out a chain locked door,which isnt that obvious to see, around 8:30 pm,I and a friend started searching not long after and I had call for other friends for help ,and I also phoned 911 when I returned after searching, around 9:10-9:15 pm. Well back to court I go on June 18,2002.I went to a meeting,June 5,2002, at MCFD in hopes of getting the boys back.Only to realize it was a waste of tax payer's money,all involved person's time and a emotional abusive game.I will be and have put in a alarm system and safety devices in my home to keep the boys safely in the home. I went to court and the hearing has been postponed till July 2,02. To be heard, again, by the original judge!Well it wasn't the original judge. I went in thinking I had it made,only to be confronted by lies and twisted truths presented by affidavits by the social worker and family services worker.Now I go back to court, again July 26,02 to set a date for a case conference.THIS IS NOT JUSTICE TO MY CHILDREN.

First let me say that my heart goes out to you and I am sorry for what you are going through.
I don't have much to offer you, but I remember reading on a website once...that you should write your own documents. These documents should explain the incidents and facts in your words as to what happened and should explain your side of the story. You should also explain what has been written by them that is not true and why.
These documents should be submitted to your attorney or judge to be used as evidence.
God Bless,
MO
