I was surrounded by CPS and armed policemen with racially accused questions, and FALSE claims that we refused a B12 shot during our hospital stay to get my sun fluids. Ra was transitioning from extended breastfeeding to the bottle. My Sun was placed in a white-hot promote residence bypassing our qualified relatives for placement. THIS IS LEGALIZED KIDNAPPING!

System why have you demonized a situation that could have happened to any breast feeding mother and her infant?

System why have you falsely accused me of Neglect and Abuse to the most precious life I’ve ever known? A life that was created inside my womb.

We have so many questions … Something seems extremely wrong that Amen-Ra has not been returned after so many months. The daughter’s case sounds like a possible miscommunication that we hope will get clarify matters promptly if the babe is healthy.

Mercado made birth to her daughter less than week ago, at home with midwife services. Those who have any experience with the social work system already know that because Amen-Ra has been separated from his parent’s care, their newborn’s birth and welfare would probably be monitoredas well. Based on the video Deener filmed, he has custody of three older children, but based on the video, it sounded like because their case is under a different district the household is being considered differently in the case of the younger two children.

We’re praying for Syesha and her children, specially that she be reunited with her children soon and they are health and safe.
