Hello everyone. I know this post was made a couple of years ago, but I have a story to share with all of you. I am 35-years old, and I have given birth to 3 children. I was adopted at the age of 2, and I wish I could say my adoption was wonderful. When I had all three of my children I was not a minor. I had every right to be a mother, but my parents felt it necessary to obtain my children in very horrifying ways.
First they kidnapped my daughter, and continued to sue for custody under the Grandparent Act. I just now obtained my daughter back; after 16 years of fighting. So, you think that solved everything? No. They constantly call my child and accuse me of belittling my child. The eerie thing is; they live over 1500 miles from me, so how do they know?
My second child was adopted out to family against my wishes. My parents delivered adoption papers to my job (actually my dad handed them to me through the drive-thru window). I refused to sign them, and gave them to a therapist. I told the therapist I refuse to give up my son. Well, he got adopted out. My parents showed up to my apartment and forced me to sign a second set of papers while I was heavily medicated. I became very depressed after they took my son, so I was on a lot of mind altering medications. I had no business signing papers, and they knew that.
With my daughter, when she was 4 months old I was told if I got my tubes tied I could keep her. I did as they wished, and you know what? I never was allowed to keep my daughter. The same people that adopted my son ended up adopting my daughter. They proceeded to buy me a car, and I am thankful that car was stolen. They literally bought my daughter.
When I tried to tell people the truth about, "It was not my decision to give up my kids" I was told to keep my mouth shut, and the person who has my two little ones (okay they aren't so little anymore) will never know what happened. She is happy and taking very good care of those two.
Who the hell cares about the truth? They have abused their rights, and I have spent 16 years grieving. Yes, I have my 16-year old back (because they were too old to truly take care of her) and the other two are in their teens.
If I could afford a lawyer I would press every single criminal charge I could...
