This is the story of how A young girl was taken advantage of by an adoption agency.
This is important because these children were “Swept” away from their family in one of the most Unbelievable ways you could ever imagine. Their 17 year old Mentally Unstable Mother was able to sign them up for Adoption right under her family’s nose. After reading this Family’s story you will be aware of why we need all the support we can get…..Here is their story as told by Their Grandmother.
We want to get this exposed and while doing so perhaps it may help others that face similar issues or may not know that these issues exist. We Hope That legislation will restructure some of the laws when it comes to Teens and Adoption so this type of thing doesn’t happen to other families, although it happens quite frequently. I am the parent of a 17 year old daughter who happens to be the mother of two children.
She has suffered from mental health issues since she was about 12 which has a lot to do with her being a mother at such a young age.We have been seeking help for her, my family and I are there for her and the children. Well on Jan 28th 2012 my daughter was raped at gunpoint by 4 men, Of course this devastated us. After the rape We immediately sought counseling as she began acting out and not like herself.
It got so bad that we came to the conclusion that she may need In-patient care AGAIN. So I called our local mental health hospital for adolescents and was told I had to wait a couple of days until they were able to get a bed for her. On feb 9th 2012 my daughter disappeared with the children I called her constantly on her cell phone to see where they were finally she called me back and stated that she was at a good friend of hers house and asked could I come and get her, I did. We discussed her taking the kids and leaving without my consent due to her mental state and she was told not to do it again.
Fast forward to feb 14th 2012 I wake up in the morning and go to my daughters room and realize that she and the children are not there, again I try calling her but get no answer. As I stated earlier due to her mental state I became worried and filed a police report…later that evening my daughter was found at the bus station getting ready to board a bus without her children. I came to pick her up while the police held her there. She tells me that she has signed adoption papers on her children and that they are gone.
