During the first 2 years my son was very upset about not being with me and appeared to come to the visits drugged, as though they wanted to keep him from crying when they tore him away from me each week.
At one point after the East Coast earthquake and hurricane in 2011, the 2 AMPS social workers, Joan and Liz asked me about my religion, as if they were scared for themselves, Joan had a tree that fell through her house. Social worker, Liz, actually asked me about the confession process, saying she wanted to go, she asked about other religious matters. She also said she did not want to stay in her job, and wanted something she would not have to see the wrongdoing that she was part of, but could not find anything that paid so well. Liz also said she felt sorry for Justin and I, that his father was putting us through this. At one point early on in the first year, after several conversations with Joan about the case, she said to me, “sounds like you're caught up in the system.”
When I recently tried to talk with my son about him coming home, they would not let me speak, I raised my voice at Joan the visitor and she coerced my son to walk away with her telling him he was very frightened, several times. Before walking away I asked my son if I frightened him, he said no Mom, but she continued to shut off my freedom of speech and dragged him off, the large man who was with her, I never saw him before, pushed me in a bullying way, saying your car is that way. I have not seen my son since then, July 30, 2012.
Social worker Liz, testified in court November 2012, that I cried in front of my son more than once and again on the stand persecuted me for my religious beliefs. As a loving Mother I have brought up the subject of praying to God and staying close to him once a month for a minute just so my son Justin had some faith to hold on to while going through all this torment.
My care and love for my son is not a crime, but the injustice and violation of My Constitutional Rights is a crime.
