A Brief Recap of Our Last Two Years.....

All that I post below is facts, all of which I have the evidence for.... I may omit some facts as there are just too many for a brief recap!

3rd April 2008 onwards....

My 12 year old son said he had been kicked in the head by my husband.

School counselor wrote on the referral form that we had had a child protection referral before - we had not - it was the people who they placed my son with.

My husband was arrested for allegation of kicking a child in head.

Sometime before 10am the following day, police and social workers knew this to be a false allegation.

Two children were removed from my care with no emergency protection order - therefore the social services acted illegally.

They did not return my children in the legally stipulated time of 72 hours in the absence of a Court Order.

Instead of admitting there was a false allegation they mounted a campaign to try to get my husband plead guilty to an assault that did not happen.

My husband pleaded not guilty despite often being told you will be found guilty by his defence lawyer.

He was found guilty.

The policeman who transcribed my husband's interview got it wrong - a fact so wrong that it overturned his conviction.

They have imposed a care order on the grounds of the conviction.

I appealed the care order, however it now seems that they plucked my son out of thin air and popped a care order on him as a result of no incident taking place. An interesting scenario this is and one that is worth a further challenge.

Now as these years are ticking by they have sent my son's behaviour downhill, that is saying it politely, they have not acted in his best interests - just trying desparately to cover up their mistakes.

Last week after the hearing I was approached by Miss Purgery who at a previous hearing told the Court we were all moving to Australia (perhaps wishful thinking in her behalf) and said we must work together to get him home - after telling the court I was putting him at risk of emotional harm? I said I will work with you 100% once you acknowledge that no assault took place. She said we can't do that - I said well I know that otherwise you would have to admit you are wrong.

Their plan is obvious to most earthworms even - they want to slip him back home drop the care order and make it appear like it is all rosy in the garden again, and I will go away.

Today as it stands they are responsible for the destruction of another child's life rather than be held accountable for their devastating mistakes, lack of communication, incompetence and outright lies.

In the words of my 3 year old - 'Big Girls Never Give Up'

Each stage we get a little closer to getting the truth out in the open.

Still the care order remains, but now by a thread instead of a rope. I intend to cut that thread one day. The appeal was good in lots of ways that I can't explain at this moment in time.

Without giving too much away the reason for the care order still standing is that he MAY suffer emotional harm - just like I MAY get run over by a bus (probably driven by an out of work social worker).

As big girls never give up, I am preparing my next appeal on this decision which will go to the Privy Council in London. I think it was their last ditched attempt to shut me up. The lawyer behind me with a fondness for yellow shoes, said at the end 'well that's finished', as she shut her files. Well actually no it isn't.

As the saying goes it isn't over till the fat lady sings - well I'm not even humming yet.

Very Appealing!

This will be a short post almost two years to the day Social Services kidnapped my son. Anyone who has followed this blog will know our story, and will know we appealed the conviction against my husband and won. Next week will bring my appeal against the care order imposed on my son, which is now as a result of a lawful punishment for my son's behaviour. Imagine having a child taken from you for grounding them and being told they are at risk of significant harm.

These two years have seen the destruction of my child's education, after numerous suspensions he has now been expelled. They have not only destroyed our family but my son who they are supposed to protect. Shame on them. They have my utter disrespect. Any child in their care is at risk from the incompetence and negligence of these so-called professionals.

If I win, what have I won? I have been told that 'if you get him back he's not the child you once knew' (from a professional referring to his downward spiraling behaviour). There's a old saying that the social services should have taken note of two years ago 'Mother knows best'. No-one knows my son like I do, they should have listened to me.
