Kelsey Saturday 2007 / Julie Barto Kelseyspurpose.org
On April 28th, 2007 in the state of Oklahoma, many other states, and two other countries, we are going to be gathering at various locations for the second annual Kelsey Saturday. As members of Kelsey's Purpose we will be remembering a little girl in our state who was murdered while in the State of Oklahoma's custody in 2005. Her name is Kelsey Smith-Briggs. We will also remember the other tiny, helpless babies and children who have died as a result of neglect by the system that was supposed to protect them. 42 children died in 2005 in the state of Oklahoma as a result of child abuse and neglect. i wonder how many were in state custody besides Ms. Kelsey??? We will be distributing child abuse awareness and prevention materials as well.
For more information on Kelsey Saturday and to find how how you can help, please visit us at www.kelseyspurpose.org. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Together we can make a difference. Kelsey's biological father Lance Briggs was fighting for us in the war on terror with the US Army, when his little Kelsey was losing her battle on US soil. Kelsey died days before she was to be reunited with her loving father. He never got to say godbye to her. Kelsey was failed by the sytem put in place to save her. Many others are failed by the same system. This must stop, and these agencies have to be ACCOUNTABLE for what has happened. Kelsey has many you tube tributes as well. Thank you. Close
CPS Destroyed My Family Protecting a (Convicted)Child Molester To Cover Up Their Closing a Case For Outcries Which Could've Stopped Him 2 Years Sooner / Molly Murphy (http://enforcemypo.b--logstream.com)Read >>
CPS Destroyed My Family Protecting a (Convicted)Child Molester To Cover Up Their Closing a Case For Outcries Which Could've Stopped Him 2 Years Sooner / Molly Murphy (http://enforcemypo.b--logstream.com)
In retaliation for outcries reported to CPS my ex made false allegations against me and assisted in abducting my child, CPS ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSED an investigation for sexual abuse which - if they hadn't closed the case (WITHOUT investigating it) might have caught him 2 years sooner from molesting children, videotaping it, and selling it on the internet...
They screwed up and they knew it.... but instead of fixing their mistakes, they put me under a gag order, gave THE MOLESTER VISITATIONS and severed all contact between me and my child calling me "uncooperative" because I was outspoken about their mistakes...
My story is at http://enforcemypo.blogstream.com and a story i wrote of a fictional reenactment based on true events of the abuse my son and others suffered in foster care is at http://enforcemypo.blogstream.com/.
SHARE AWARENESS - KEEP TELLING PEOPLE AND EVENTUALLY THEY MIGHT HEAR US, we owe it to our children....

My two-year-old great-niece, Jezebel Donenll, died January 14, 2007. / Ellen Landgraf
My two-year-old great-niece, Jezebel Donenll, died January 14, 2007. Three reports were made to DHS. The mother had been in the hospital 3 times (3 different hospitals) since September, 2006 for mental health issues. She had also tested positive for methamphetamine use during her 2nd hospital stay. She was also making numerous emergency room visits to get pain pills. She was also receiving DHS benefits and supposedly attending school, which she very seldom did. January 1st, the DHS benefits were cutoff because she had not been attending school. DHS did not once check on the welfare of Jezebel. Daily Oklahoman -- Thu January 25, 2007 Strangulation cited in death of 2-year-old El Reno girl found with beads around neck, authorities say.By Robert Medley Staff Writer EL RENO — A 2-year-old girl who died at home Jan. 14 was found with a string of beads wrapped around her throat, El Reno police said Thursday. Preliminary findings show Jezebel Donnell likely died from asphyxiation by strangulation, police said. Investigators are calling her death suspicious, Lt. Van Gillock said. The girl was the daughter of Jesse Donnell, 27, and Casie L. Basford, 25. Another daughter, Juliana Donnell, 4 months, died at the couple's home in October 2005. The state medical examiner's office ruled the cause of death was sudden infant death syndrome. Jesse Donnell can be heard in a 911 recording released Thursday telling a dispatcher he came home to find Jezebel unresponsive with the beads around her neck. "My girlfriend had put the baby to bed last night and I guess she had some beads or something wrapped around her neck,” Jesse Donnell said to a dispatcher. Basford failed to show up Wednesday for a polygraph test, police said. She told police she plans to speak to an attorney before giving an interview about the child's death, Gillock said. Father nabbed on warrant. Police went to the couple's home at 403 N Bickford Ave. on Wednesday and arrested Jesse Donnell on an unrelated warrant, Gillock said. Jesse Donnell failed to comply with court-ordered conditions of a 2005 domestic abuse conviction, Gillock said. He received a one-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge, court records show. He was being held Thursday in the Canadian County jail. On the 911 recording, Jesse Donnell is heard telling the dispatcher, "I lost one to SIDS last year. I don't want to ... I don't want to lose another one ... Please hurry, please.” Jezebel was dead when emergency workers arrived. Close

there is hope / Julie Kelseyspurpose.org
In the state of Oklahoma we are slowly making changes, thanks to a paternal grandmother of a two year old girl who was murdered, while in state custody. Kelsey Smith Briggs died October 11, 2005 after months of documented abuse. Please join us at www.kelseyspurpose.org to find ways to make changes. We have members from all over Oklahoma, all over the United States and now are gaining members from all over the world. the Kelsey Smith Briggs Child Protection Act was created and still needs funding to become fully effective, but changes are happening already in the State of Oklahoma. As I am reading all of these horror stories and cries for help I am wanting all of you to join us at KP to come up with new ways to stop the abuse both by the parents/caretakers, and the systems that are failing these kids. The time to act is NOW NOT LATER. I look forward to seeing more members at Kelsey's Purpose from around the country.
Child abuse does not affect just one type of child, it affects them all. Children need more of us to stand up for them and to stand up against a system that is failing them. I challenge everyone who has posted on this site to join us at KP and start acting now. Children are going to continue to die if we don't make changes in every state and hold the agencies that are failing the kids accountable. Close

My heart is broken and I have no way to find out if they are dead or alive / Michelle A. Evans
My children were taken from me and put in the care of their grandmother aross the US WITHOUT any type of investigation. My children are now being beaten on a daily basis with belts across the back, wire hangers all over there body,and anything the grandmother can get ahold of and calling me and crying to me to save them. I have been deemed by the CPS and courts as a unfit mother and when I call the police they do nothing to save my children. I have no power to stop her from sending them back to there father that had a restraining order against him for threatening to kill my children and myself and child and spousal abuse. My children are in grave danger and may even been killed and nobody will help me. I am DISGUSTED by how the police and CPS is handling this situation and how the courts also did. My children are going to be killed and I will be arrested if I even try to attempt to save them. My own daughter even called CPS herself and nothing was done. They blew her off and she was beaten by her grandmother that day when she found out she called them. My heart is broken and I have no way to find out if they are dead or alive or even well anymore. All my calls are being refused by that house.. Something needs to be done to stop this! Close
My son Harley comitted suicide in foster care / Larry Corliss Read >>
My son Harley comitted suicide in foster care / Larry Corliss My son Harley comitted suicide in foster care, so Im told. The federal government used CPS to take my children and told me Id never see them again. I fought them for 3 years before they took my parental rights. They were 3 and 4 years old. Today one is dead and the other somewhere in the system, which they wont tell me. I have since learned that the government passed laws to take our parental rights and give us coustodial rights. That means that we are merely caretakers for the government who can take their children from us anytime they please. Its time these laws were repealed and we the people were given back our parental rights and given back our children. Mine were taken because there was an anonymousphone call saying there was possible neglect by a babysitter!!! I couldnt possibly control her when i wasnt present. What CPS has done is open a candy store for perverts and sick persons and stocked the shelves with our children. No one took president Bushes daughters when they were caught drinking, why? Because he owned the candy store!! Give us back our children. If we have nothing to live for, perhaps we have something to die for, our rights, our children.Close

help me to help my children / Carol Patenaude
I am a 26 year old mother of 4, and the ministry of Children and Families has been harassing me for the last year and a half. My 3 oldest kids don't under stand what is going on, and I miss them dearly just as they miss me. I placed them with a friend on my own when i was having troubles, as i thought it would be easier to get them back than if the ministry placed them, but was wrong. Instead, they tell me what I can and cannot do with them, and every time their dad even gives them a hug, the ministry cries sexual abuse. Since when is it considered to show your kids that they are loved, especially when we don't get to see them very often. My youngest one is still in our care, but the ministry has already threatened to take him as well, as he is only 3 months old and was born with an abdominal wall defect. Somebody...anybody...please tell me what I can do Close

never give up / Mother Of Christina Ann Valle (helping to make a change ) Kayla, never give up. I know it is hard. I did everything I could for my daughter. Stay close to others. Stay with positive people. Tell your story to every news cast, congress, your church sooner or later we will win if we don't give up. I miss my daughter every day. But through her death the Lord has given me strength that I thought I would never have. I know that he will continue to open doors for me, so I can carry out Christina's memory for others. Your children need you. If you need to talk to me just give me an e-mail. I will listen to you as much as you need.Close

Instead they are being placed for adoption while I await my appeal / Nicole Irons My children were taken from my care on the basis of abuse acuzations that CPS gave me no choice but to plead no contest to. I complete the parent agency agreement and have proof that I did everything for my children to be returned. Instead they are being placed for adoption while I await my appeal, which somehow my file kept coming up missing, because the judge had it. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? There was nothing ever proven for me to lose my children nor will there ever be. Please someone take control over the Children Snatchers!Close
I spent years working for DFS/CPS agencies / Victoria Hammond Read >>
I spent years working for DFS/CPS agencies / Victoria Hammond I spent years working for DFS/CPS agencies before the federal "Pass Through" monies made it too profitable to states to provide in-home services. I am now a counselor, and the horrors I have seen CPS agencies commit, are beyond insanity. When I worked in an agency 20 years ago, and a homeless family showed up in their car, we put them in a motel, provided food, employment counseling and helped them get on their feet. Last year, in this small rural county, some folks who were evicted, although they had, in fact paid up the rent prior to the court date, were met by CPS workers as they left the court, and told that when the sheriff came to evict them, they would be there to pick up the children, "as there are good families who can take care of these kids" Thanks to my supervisor, by the end of the day all six children were safe in friends' homes, and the parents were sheltered at another home. The next day we arranged a HUD housing place for them, (he worked), and the kids were safe with their parents again.I can tell you another 25 tales vastly worse; the boy killed by his foster father, the kids placed by a druggie relative, snatched without the mother knowing, and dumped off in another county CPS agency. It took three years to get those kids back. Please do something to expose the travesties of the present system. Close
