December 31st I received a phone call at work that my first and only child was needing to be rushed to Childrens Levine Hospital in Charlotte NC after falling off the bed. After 4 days of observation my son was later diagnosed with Shaken baby Syndrome.
3 weeks of hospitilization, he recovered tremendously -- starting to open his eyes, eat, & respond to my voice. He was then released from the hospital but was labled as being "medically fragile". After discharge, he was released to Foster Care... NOT ME. After a month of being in foster care he was then released to his father..again NOT ME. I am currently employed and enrolled in parenting classes. Following all court orders and doing whatever I can to bring my son back home where he belongs.
I am a victim that is being treated like a criminal.
I have done everything in my power to cooperate but I have come to the realization that the system is not for me but against me. I NEED YOUR HELP.
My son is only 8 months old and I can not afford to miss anymore of his precious life that god so graciously spared. Please sign my petition so that baby Koa can come home. Please ask all of your friends, family, friends of family, anyone to sign.
