The parents have appealed the judge’s decision to terminate their parental rights. There will be a pre-trial on April 16, 2014 and a trial in May of 2014. We are doing everything we can to stop them from getting their children back.
One of our grandchildren is in a Psychiatric Hospital for children with emotional and behavioral problems because of the physical, emotional and sexual abuse and the other four are in foster care.
We need legal advice on what we can do to be able to see our grandchildren and make sure their rights are being protect and those over their case is looking out for their best interest.
We need support and your help by signing the petition and share it with others. Find out updates, documents, photos and more at Gammy Speaks Out on Facebook.
Hi, my name is Kaylie,
When I was just a newborn I was being neglected and abused by my parents. My gammy (grandma) tried to get help for me and turned my parents in to OKDHS. But while my parents were being investigated for my abuse they took off with me and move to another county. My gammy got the news (News Channel KFOR 4), police and OKDHS involved even more trying to find me.
When my Gammy found out I was in Sequoyah County she began to write the editor of the Sequoyah County Times address OKDHS and begging them to do a welfare check on my parents and see if I was alright.
My father’s family kept me hidden and protected my father and not me.
My father would beat my mother in front of me and kick us out to bring other women home. My Gammy and PaPa on my mother’s side always let us come and stay with them when my father kicked us out. By my mommy would always go back with him and more children come.
My father’s mom would take his new girlfriends to church with her and kick us out of her trailer with nothing. My dad’s sister, aunt, cousins and new girlfriend even sold all of our stuff to get my father out of jail after he tried to kill my mother and kidnapped us.
My parents would let teenagers come and take me home with them when I was only 2 yrs old. They would even climb in my bedroom windows.They even let a child sex offender live with us when I was a newborn.
In Nov. of 2011, my three siblings and I was taken from my parents by OKDHS/CPS when I was 5 years old and we were placed with my grandparents (Gammy & PaPa). Right before Christmas we were taken from my grandparents and I have been living in different foster homes and even in a facility for behavior problems because I was sexually abused.
There is now five (5) of us. I am 7 yrs old, my siblings are Gerald age 5, Patrick age 4, Kaytlynn age 2 and Stephen who is a newborn (around 3 months old). I have tried to take care of them. I would go and make them sandwhiches, give them bottles and even get up at night with them cause my parents would not.
The last time we saw our grandparents was in Feb. of 2012 and Stephen has never met them. I miss them very much. Ask any of our foster parents they will tell you we talked about our grandparents and not our parents.
Please call the judge and tell him not to place us back with our parents or any of my father’s family. They never helped us before. I am telling what happened to me but I am a child and need your help.
1/15/2014 – There was a court hearing to set a trial date and both parents showed up in court with their court appointed attorneys. They had not shown up the last two court dates.
Pre-Trial date set for April 16, 2014 and Trial date set for May 12, 2014 at 9am.
The termination of the parental rights for baby Stephen was discussed. The father’s lawyer said the father wanted his sister Jennifer Payton to take all the children to keep them with his family.When the judge asked the attorneys and the case workers all of them said no because the parents would have access to the children.
It was mentioned on several occasions of the sexual abuse by the father on the oldest child. The courts main concern was the safety of the children.
Both parents were allowed to leave the court and were not charged and arrested.
We must continue to protect the children from their parents and also from the father’s family who have stood by the abusers and not the children.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP THE COURTS FROM PLACING THE CHILDREN WITH ANYONE THAT WILL GIVE THE PARENTS ACCESS TO THE CHILDREN.
We need help to protect our five (5) grandchildren from any further abuse. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Judge Louis Duel,
Please terminate the parental rights to baby Stephen Taylor. As you have done his four older siblings. (Kaylie, Gerald, Patrick & Kaytlynn Taylor) to protect him from abuse. And please stop them from going to any of the father’s family who watch the abuse of the three oldest children for many years and did nothing to help them. They have stood with the abusive parents and not the children since the oldest child was born.

Many times people will try to get you to be silent, tell you to stop talking about, just forgive and forget. But it is still very much a reality of those who are abused. They don’t forget what has happen to them.
Our most powerful weapon is our voice. When we speak out about abuse it no longer has power over us. There is a freedom when we speak the truth about what has happen to us or to others.
You will never comfort anyone with a lie. The truth does set you free. And there are millions out there that will be in your corner and help you stand when you fall. They will support you and stick closer to you than a brother.
We all have a choice to either speak or be silent. I choose to speak out and I will not be silent so that the abusers can stay comfortable.
GAMMY SPEAKS OUT – GAMMY CRIES OUT FOR HELP. – Gammy speaks out again and asks for help to save her grandson from abuse.
When we had the last petition online for the four oldest grandchildren. We received a private message from one of the signers of the petition who alleges they saw the children very hungry and fed them. We want to say thank you for feeding them something. We removed their name to protect them from being harassed by others.
