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.
