I can't find any FJ threads relating to this woman, but has anyone else fallen down this rabbit hole? 😱 I've been down there for hours - please send the ferrets! She's not fundie as such, but claims to be Christian, and is certainly narcissistic/crazy enough to be on our radar. Claims to be a lawyer/doctor/naturopath/yoga instructor/child genius/stay at home (single, divorced) mother to three bio and two adopted Congolese kids (although they seem to have been taken by CPS), recently remarried to a younger childless guy, raw food eating, workout addict, all around perfect person, etc etc etc. Oh, and - naturally - she's an anti-vaxxer. Worth starting a thread, folks? She's certainly got the crazy. https://www.livingwhole.org/inside-my-battle-with-child-protective-services/

dawbs posted a topic in Parenting - Good & Badhttp://www.freejinger.org/topic/30529-turpins-13-shackled-kids/ Continued from : http://www.freejinger.org/topic/30529-turpins-13-shackled-kids/?page=24 The info thus far is that there were 13 kids in varying degrees of abused, in the house. The parents have been charged. I'll let FJ update anything additional.
Howl posted a topic in EducationJust came across the Rembis family: 11 kids CPS currently has their 11 kids, age 16 months to 17, homeschoolers, antivax-ers. They have been reported to CPS in at least 3 different states with CPS taking various kids at various times. They had just skipped town in Lubbock, TX and moved to Colorado, apparently to try and stay one step ahead of CPS. When I googled them, the Medical Kidnap site was all over these people like stink on poop because of the homeschool angle. Here's the "official report" at http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/couple-investigated-states-facing-neglect-case-texas-42159281 with highlights (or lowlights) below: Reading the Medical Kidnap site, it says they are "devout", just wonderful, the kids are fine but traumatized by CPS. One could overlook the foraging (maybe) but not the loud music drowning out terrified screams, as referenced in the article above. The Medical Kidnap version here: http://medicalkidnap.com/2015/08/04/cps-kidnaps-11-children-from-texas-homeschool-family/
I know this site has been brought up in threads of various fundie families (Rembis, Naugler, etc), but I'd like a space to talk about the site itself and the lesser-known cases it features. Brief intro for those unfamiliar: Medical Kidnap is a website purporting to share stories of families who have been "torn apart" when their children were "kidnapped" for medical reasons. Typically it's stuff like refusing to vaccinate, not taking perfectly healthy children to the doctor, living off-grid, faith healing, etc. The stories often follow a specific format - the children are 100% happy, healthy, and loved, a neighbor or medical professional reports them to CPS for some unknown reason, CPS comes and takes their kids away immediately without any proof of the allegations, kids are split up into various foster homes and all are immediately abused, and the parents do every single thing asked of them but CPS keeps changing the requirements/timelines/rules so they can never get everything done and pursues TPR so they can get the boatloads of cash the government gives them for putting kids up for adoption. Aaaaaaand DISCUSS!
