Parents Against Injustice
The guilty until proven innocent has been evidence of how backwards the justice system has become. They need to prove you are guilty first. Instead we are all trying to prove we are innocent. How did we stray so far from what is just and right.
It would also be wonderful to be able to clear your name on the child protection records. They need to do something more than an addendum in small print on the bottom of the last page. A pediatrician had told me that after this is over you will need to go through all of the records and correct anything that is false with your own addendum and file it otherwise it is looked on as undisputed and if you need to run to the emergency room again with your child you are still on the watch list and treated as suspect. The false information is still looked upon as fact.
This not only effects us it also effects our children's children. This marks them for life too. If the parents were abusers then the children have great potential to be abusers. Also an article that came out here not too many months ago focussed on a family that had their baby removed at birth because they themselves had been raised in the foster care system here and so they would not make good parents. What a future our children will have if this remains the same.
I agree with you. United we stand...Divided we fall. We do need to interconnect with eachother. We need to build a strong army of good people willing to continue in this quest undaunted. Even when we win our own battles we must not stop. Our own children need us to continue. Winning our case is not complete success. I for one do not want to have to look a crying mother or suffering child in the eye and say I was too tired to continue fighting for you.
Thanks Mike for urging us on. We are with you!
