For many years, I fought for four (4) of my grandchildren to free from their abusive parents. It wasn’t an easy fight but it did finally happen and their parental rights were removed by the courts.
Then I heard there was a 5th baby born, a boy named Stephen. I have never met, seen or held him. He was taken by OKDHS at birth I was told by the PA. I begin to fight to help him not be placed back with his abusive parents. Last I heard the parents rights was terminated and he was adopted. He is now 3 years old. I saw a photo of him as a newborn, today for the first time.
I know many say well the abusive parents can change. That may be true, but I cannot and will not sacrifice any child and take that chance of them not surviving. They don’t have a choice but the parents do.
The parents separated and the “father” remarried and moved on. The “mother” ended up pregnant for the 6th time by another man and she had a baby girl, who was taken by OKDHS at a few months old. I heard her name starts with the letter “M” and the “mother” has visitation and is trying to get her back.
So, the fight continues now for baby “M”. May the courts not return her to her “abusive mother” and may she find a home full of protection, love and safety.
I am a grandmother of ten (10) grandchildren. I only get to see four (4) of the ten (10). I miss my grandchildren every day. I pray for them everyday. And I know one day they will find me and they will know they had a grandmother who loved them to fight for them to be free from abuse.
As a child I lived with two abusive parents. My mother was more abusive physically and my “father” was sexually. When they finally divorced it was my “father” who divorced her and she was devastated. She wanted him more than anything else, even her own children.
A parent who puts the abuser before her own children is not a survivor. She is just as addictive to the abuse as the abuser.
Many who claim to be a survivor of domestic violence are not. The truth is they use that as an excuse to stay sick, unfit and even to play the victim role. Someone who is seen as a victim it is hard to see as a abuser, also. And people begin to feel sorry for them.
In order to live with theirself, they claim they didn’t know he was abusing their children in that way (sexually). When the truth is they knew and didn’t want to stop it cause they didn’t want to lose their husband.
Does living with an abuser give you the right to abuse your children or allow them to be abused? No!
The only true victim is the child(ren).
My husband was very ill and went through several operations and was in the hospital and medical rehab for nine (9) months. So, this is why I have not been able to give an update on our grandchildren.
We have heard that the abusive parents gave up their rights to the first four (4) children who were in OKDHS custody. They had a 5th child (Stephen) who was taken at birth by the state.
The “parents” were not charged with any abuse even though they admitted to the abuse including sexual abuse in court. They gave up their parental rights to the first five (5) children. The “parents” divorced and he recently married his next victim.
The “mother” had a 6th child (a girl) in 2016 and the OKDHS took her when she was a few months old. The “mother” is fighting to get this daughter back. She is living in the house of horror we are petitioning the state to tear down. SIGN PETTIION NOW
We still stand in the gap to stop either of them from ever getting our grandchildren back and pray they do not have anymore children.
We have not seen the first four grandchildren since Feb. of 2012. We have never seen Stephen or the newest baby girl.
PaPa & Gammy are still here and send our love and prayers to each of you. We pray you are happy, safe and loved by your new parents.
We started a new petition to have the House of Horror torn down where my grandchildren, other family members and I were abused mentally, physically and sexually as children from 1970s to 2011. We have contacted the Local Newspaper and more to get this house torn down. Help us by signing the petition. SIGN THE PETITION

A Sallisaw man was arrested earlier last month by Sallisaw Police after authorities were informed that 30-year-old Gerald William Taylor II, was possibly in violation of his parole. Charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia were filed against Taylor on Jan. 28.
According to the probable cause affidavit filed by officer Tyler Wilson, on Jan. 11 officer Wilson was said to have been dispatched to a room at Motel 6 and met with two individuals with community sentencing who informed him that Taylor allegedly had items that were in violation of his parole.
Inside Taylor’s room authorities allegedly found a pipe and green leafy substance in a can, as well as a syringe and bags of another drug. He was then transported to the Sallisaw City Jail.
Court records show Taylor has former convictions out of Sequoyah County, one on Sept. 9, 2010 for domestic abuse in the presence of a minor – second offense, and another on May 14, 2013 for possession of a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

TO WHOM IT MAY BE CONCERNED
I have tried to let the Oklahoma courts and OKDHS, and others handle what needs to be done to protect my grandchildren from being abused by their abusive parents.
I and others did what we were suppose and reported the child abuse many many times.
I am not here for your entertainment. I am not here to play games. I am not here to itch your ears and tell you what you want to hear.
I could care less what classes the abusive parents took, I could care less that they go to church, got a job, or even quit drinking and doing drugs. They are pedophiles who molested and abused my grandchildren. They need to be arrested, tried and charged!
Ive got four (4) grandchildren in foster care for over two (2) years, And the oldest who is 7 years old the last I heard is in a psychiatric hospital for children with behavioral problems because she told the truth about being sexually abused. Now I have to question the courts of why they would ever even think of placing my grandchildren back with their abusive pedophile parents.
They don’t get to see their family who did not abuse them. Those who didn’t stand by an watch them be abused by their parents. Half of you never laid eyes on my grandchildren yet you are deciding their fate without knowing the whole truth of what they have been through. Why aren’t those who know and saw the abuse being able to testify in behalf of the children without being told what they can and cannot say?
I have been there since the day they were born and I do know and I can speak for them and be their voice and I am not a stranger I am their grandmother.
I am tired of calls and messages asking me if I think the abusive parents are fit. I have said NO for almost 8 years and if you ask me 108 years from now I would still say NO! My grandchildren deserve justice and their abusers deserve jail.
So before you think to call me or ask me what I think about my grandchildren being placed back with their abusive pedophile parents you better be willing to hear the answer!
