WATCH ABOVE: It can be very challenging for families to get out of the cycle of protective care in Montreal. Anne Leclair speaks with a mother who says she has really worked hard to be a good parent and believes Batshaw is prejudiced against families in the system.

MONTREAL – A 20-year-old mother of two will never forget the day her first-born daughter was taken away by youth protection in May of 2012.

“That was one of the worst days of my life when I lost her.

Alex Alexandria Hill Marijuana Murdered Foster Care

Beautiful baby Alexandria Hill was removed from her parent’s custody because they naively admitted to Child Protective Services that they sometimes used marijuana at night, after Alex was asleep, to help them rest as well. Child Protective Services in Texas apparently felt that minor marijuana use was neglectful supervision, so she was removed from the custody of her devoted, loving parents and placed in foster care.

How a devoted mother with a loving middle-class family was forcibly separated from her son - with fatal consequences

Late morning, April 2003, and for the tenth time in two hours I called my cousin Pam’s mobile.

Again there was no answer, and I was beginning to worry. Earlier, I’d driven past her house and had considered stopping for a coffee — but it was very early, so I’d gone home.

Half an hour later, I’d called her mobile. Then her landline. Then I’d tried texting her. Nothing. For someone who always loved talking on the phone, it was unprecedented.
Proud of his mum: Jack today, with his

If emotional abuse is to be a crime, who is guilty here?

A mother's misunderstood comment led to her being jailed and her daughter put into a care home

Each time I investigate a new instance of how crazily our “child protection” system has gone off the rails, I wonder how any story could be as bad. To paraphrase the opening lines of Anna Karenina, “all happy families are alike, but each unhappy family that has fallen into the clutches of this system experiences how corrupted it has become in its own way”.

This week’s example is that of a mother and daughter who lived happily together in the middle of one of the most beautiful areas of countryside

Judge reunites young family separated by overzealous social workers

'Baby B' was taken away from his parents after an innocent fall
The parents were accused of neglect by the Nottinghamshire council
Child was taken away from them for nine months and put in a foster home
Now a judge has ruled they were not neglectful
As well as psychological torment, parents also faced with large legal fees

It was the type of accident that could happen to any parent – in a split second, a young baby rolls off the bed and falls to the floor.

For most, the outcome is a few tears and some cuddles, but for one couple

Relinquishment and abjection: a semanalysis of the meaning of losing a baby to adoption

Relinquishment and abjection: a semanalysis of the meaning of losing a baby to adoption

Between 1960 and 1975 more than 38,000 mothers lost babies to adoption in New South Wales, Australia, a pattern which was replicated in other Western societies.

Farrar, Patricia.
Date: 1999
Abstract:

Various theories were proposed for women's exnuptial pregnancies which resulted in their babies being taken for adoption, culminating in the discursive construction of the unmarried mother as 'mad, bad, or stupid'.

Until the 1990s, the voices of women whose babies had been taken for adoption had been silenced by the social order which adoption practices served.

It is through their voices, and

Lord Justice Munby, recently promoted to be head of our family courts, announced again last week that he is determined to meet the tidal wave of criticism being directed at the system

It is four years since I began regularly reporting here on the most disturbing story I have covered in all my decades as a journalist – the way our “child protection” system has been allowed, by the secrecy imposed by the courts on all its workings, to go so horrifically off the rails.

I am absolutely disgusted with the woman who made this video.  I have  reached out to her on Facebook for comment and would give her the opportunity to tell her story right here on Legally Kidnapped if she chooses to respond and I will offer the father the same opportunity except I don't know who he is.  I have not yet heard back.

Pay or you will never see your child again - Blackmail by Well Known local crèche

Rustenburg – On Friday (13 Dec ’13), a local single mother fell victim to one of the most inhumane forms of blackmail and intimidation. The mother was contacted telephonically by the principal her child’s nursery school, informing that her child was taken away by the Police and will be kept by child welfare and will remain there until… she pays the child’s registration fees for January 2014.
To some readers this will sound like a joke, no nursery school teacher or principal can be that cruel as to hold your child ransom for next year’s school fees, but we assure you, this happened at one of
