Congratulations Sonya McCaul!

celebrate

Today we celebrate.   We celebrate that Sonya McCaul is no longer a foster child, no longer in DCS custody, instead as soon as the order is finalized, she is in full custody of her father.    The person that she loves with all her heart.   The daddy that has fought for her since this nightmare began.   The father that has protected her privacy.

Someone asked earlier how I could defend this case with a “career criminal” ethically.

It’s easy for me.   First is the fact that the truth has rarely come out of the Hodgins camp – there is one blog in particular that seems to put out the nastiest unsupported rumors and yet supported by those who claim to be Christians.   This is inexcusable.    At the first amount of dishonesty people should’ve stepped back.   Case in point?  Timelines, restraining order, transition, etc…

The blog in particular?  It brings to mind so much of what was going on during the Veronica case where one man in particular that is employed in IT by Trio took great joy in  finding anyone with the name of Dusten Brown, even if the spelling wasn’t alike and attributing all wrongdoing to Veronica’s birth father.

Then there were the so called admissions gleefully published by Bonnie Cleaveland.   Why haven’t I addressed them?

Because they have no bearing.   The questions were written to trip John McCaul up during the defamation case and as he had not gone to a deposition due to a certain amount of miscommunication between attorneys.   The judge granted that those questions all be answered yes and put into evidence.   Contrary to what Dr. Cleaveland says, these were  NOT answered by John McCaul himself.   In addition, these were only to be used in the defamation case – incidentally which can be refiled at the very least against Trio Solutions and Jessica Munday.

These sorts of things and the encouragment of people to lie and stalk make me very disinclined to support them.   I should never have heard of Sonya’s case.   EVER.   Period.   She has a right to privacy.    A right that the Hodgins violated by putting her on THREE national television shows.  Incidentally also breaking the law as well as the contract that they signed.

What else broke the contract?   Filing to terminate John’s rights and to adopt Sonya.   Had this been a typical foster to adopt case with all of the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed this would not have happened.    BUT this wasn’t, this was two people attempting to circumvent the law.

Finally though is the scripture 1 Corinthians 6:9-11:  (Again, The Message, as I LOVE the language used)  9-11 Don’t you realize that this is not the way to live? Unjust people who don’t care about God will not be joining in his kingdom. Those who use and abuse each other, use and abuse sex, use and abuse the earth and everything in it, don’t qualify as citizens in God’s kingdom. A number of you know from experience what I’m talking about, for not so long ago you were on that list. Since then, you’ve been cleaned up and given a fresh start by Jesus, our Master, our Messiah, and by our God present in us, the Spirit.

John McCaul has cleaned up his life.   The last arrest was NOT a violent crime but rather one of what I would say more or less was carelessness.   You may not agree with his parenting choices but parenting choices are NOT a reason to loose parental rights over.   I have every respect that this man against odds that would have defeated many STILL GOT HIS DAUGHTER BACK.

Guess what?  Paul was a murderer.   Let’s be plain and simple there.   And you know what else?   God used him mightily.    He wrote the scriptures that you would use to condemn John McCaul.

Sonya loves her daddy.   Sonya wants to stay with her daddy.   He has been under constant scrutiny and still managed to rise above it and to protect her privacy, something the Hodgins can’t be bothered doing.    In the end, I can’t support people who again and again have been proven to lie.

In the end though, today is about Sonya McCaul!   Strong Sonya, Brave Sonya and today HAPPY SONYA!

Congratulations Girl, make new memories with your family!

Foster Parenting and Privacy of Children

DCS Statement

 

This was posted yesterday on Tennessee DCS website.   I’ll pull out the caliber of replies momentarily, one in particular I’ll call out by name.

Why hasn’t Tennessee stepped in already?   Why is this child being deliberately lied about in the media and the state who is supposed to be protecting her privacy and keeping her safe is going ahead and seemingly ignoring it.

The Hodgins are detrimental to Sonya – her GAL has already said so.    Sonya has stated through the GAL that she doesn’t want to go back and a good deal of that is because the Hodgins have done this to her.

I haven’t been able to watch the View segment yesterday.   Troy Dunn makes me nauseous.

What’s worse are all these people saying they are speaking for this child and yet they are dragging her name and her family’s name through dirt.   Calling the father who loves her the most horrible names and claiming it’s all truth and all right.   There are so many things that may have started as truth but has become a general rumor weed.    (Veggie Tales reference for those who don’t know it)

Today on twitter I found this beautiful gem.

MelanieBoswell 7-16

Now there are a few problems here – the least of which is that her timeline is so screwed up its not even funny.       (the typos I can almost forgive)   But read about the Tweet, Share, Social Network…

This is a CHILD.   A TEN YEAR OLD CHILD who has had a rough time, from all accounts she is now coping and even thriving in her new environment, but she’s not going to be allowed to just let stay where she is.    And the justifications?   They are horrible.   Releasing information about a foster child like this is at the very least a misdemeanor and at most a felony.   Ironic isn’t it?   They are yelling about John McCaul being a felon while they are committing a felony themselves.

Most disturbingly is a so called child psychologist that they are allowing to speak for them, much as the Capobiancos allowed her to speak for them.   Bonnie Cleaveland has been all over social media about this case, and while I initially thought she meant well, she too is exhibiting the classic “The ends justify the means” mentality with this little clip on the Tennessee DCS Facebook page.

BonnieCleveland1

 

This is a child psychologist, a mental health professional and she is trying to cover for a set of foster parents committing GROSS violations of foster care rules.   No matter the facts, she over and over again has argued that even if a child was obtained under questionable circumstances they should remain with that family for their own good.

No one blames the Hodgins.   When it came out that Sonya’s teacher had asked about how she was due to the media spotlight (Anderson Cooper 360) there was an outcry against the teacher, despite the fact that THEIR MEDIA SPOTLIGHT is the one that put this situation where it was.

Other fun clips that are hereby saved for the internet as long as it lasts.

Munday BS

Jessica Munday showing her usual PR spin on facts.   She can be refiled on for defamation.  I hope that happens sooner rather than later.

Justification

Then just a classic ends justify the means post.

It reminds me of a small child caught with their hand in the cookie jar that they are not supposed to be in.   They get caught and now they’re telling the reasons why what they are doing is right.

Isaiah 5:20 – God’s Word Translation:   How horrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn what is bitter into something sweet and what is sweet into something bitter.

I guarantee, at least in my church, that if John McCaul left his testimony at a church then everyone would be excited, clapping and applauding and thanking God that he had turned his life around and gotten his beloved daughter back.

And yet so called Christians are pulling this GARBAGE.   I’m beyond furious at this.  Hopefully Tennessee DCS will step in and do the right thing and put everyone under a gag order.

And that goes double for Jessica Munday and Brad Caricofe who posted THIS on Facebook yesterday.

BradCaricofeBragging

I figured he’d be coming back.     And frankly he seems to be bragging he’s above the law.

I’m sick of it.   They have no morals and no ethics, this has been proven time and time again.

A Christian isn’t this.   It isn’t any of this.   I don’t know if Brad C or Jessica M claim to be Christians but many involved in this case do.

So I ask you this?   What Would Jesus Do?   Would he create an orphan for selfish reasons?

I don’t think so.

And Now Troy Dunn?

If we didn’t already have proof that history was repeating itself from the Veronica case to the Sonya case, we have more.

Troy Dunn is going on The View tomorrow to speak about the “injustice” done to Sonya by sending her back to the biological family that she now wants to stay with.

The “disturbing” message to adoptive families?   The courts can overturn your adoption if it is ruled to be fraudulent in any way.

Troy didn’t learn at all, not from the failing reviews of his book “The F Word” or the fact that his show, APB was cancelled after one season.   (probably due to the adoptee community, his former bread and butter being very upset over the Veronica case)

Do you want to find someone to help find a birth family?  Start at this site.   Find My Birth Family does not charge and will help send you to “Search Angels” in your area who won’t charge for helping to find your birth family!   This unlike Troy Dunn who charges for his service.

Please go to The View on Facebook and tell them what you think of the fact that they are bringing Troy Dunn to their show and further publicizing a foster child’s case.

So far the only link tying all of this together is TRIO SOLUTIONS and Miss Jessica Munday, we’ll know for sure when Brad Caricofe starts posting HIS script tomorrow.

If You Have to Use a PR firm to Adopt a Child, Perhaps You Should Rethink This Adoption

I promised I would go more into depth with the “Baby Veronica” case.    This case is RIFE with ethical violations and the Christian Adoption movement (supported by Miss Lisa Morris, racist and supporter of lies) just blindly supported it.   Perhaps they think that the ICWA is a racist law.   Perhaps they just want more babies.   Perhaps it’s a more sinister possibility of cultural assimilation and colonialism.

Or it can be any mix of the grouping.   Who knows.    The fact remains, no Christian should enter a private adoption without the consent of BOTH birth parents and to make sure this occurs.   Of course as Matt and Melanie Capobianco are atheists it’s probably a moot point – their morals have already proven to be lacking.

Enter as well Jessica Munday.    Jessica Munday is the head of Trio Solutions, a PR company that is becoming almost a swear word to any who are fighting for ethical adoption reform.     Beyond the Veronica case, she has also involved herself in the Sonya McCaul case (Foster case that I WILL go into later), the Baby Dee case and POSSIBLY the Baby Elle case (the similarities in the PR are stunning but no proof as of yet).    All of the above are unethical adoptions and the latter three involve foster children that she seems to have no trouble posting all over the internet, completely destroying their privacy.

When Matt and Melanie Capobianco lost the fight originally to keep “their” “adopted from birth” daughter,   (Not adopted at birth, in fact, taken from Oklahoma without the proper documentation and without the consent of the birth father) they did not spend the time offering to host Dusten in their home to let him get to know his daughter.   They did not spend the time with her, but instead they brought in reporters to cover the handover, making the moments that were difficult much more chaotic.

Enter Jessica Munday, founder of Trio Solutions in South Carolina.    Munday, among other things, does PR work for MST, Multisystemic Therapy, where one of the “bonding therapists” is oh, look, Melanie Duncan aka Melanie Capobianco.    They are great friends and Jessica Munday decided to help with the PR to “Save Veronica Rose”.

Jessica Munday quickly became the one calling in favors, working on publicity for the case completely free of charge.   Her webmaster Brad Cariacofe then responded by helping to put up the “Save Veronica Rose”  “fact” site.

I use the term “Facts” in a very loose fashion because while some of her facts may have started as the truth, they did not stay that way.

Included in these facts are tidbits that Dusten Brown was at one point very behind on child support.   The facts?   He was only due to the fact that the child support is not assessed until AFTER the divorce decree is filed in Oklahoma – so basically when the judge decrees how MUCH child support is to be paid, you are already behind.    The facts also were that Dusten Brown’s ex wife had nothing but good things to say about her former husband as a father.

The fact that Veronica had been abandoned?   Also found to not be true – there was no contact between Dusten and his (by this point ex) finacee but it was because SHE stopped answering phone and cutting off contact.   

And the infamous text?   Oh yeah, disallowed in the South Carolina supreme court because the context had conveniently disappeared.   You got three texts that were the parts of the conversation that left Miss Christina Maldonado a woman abandoned and Dusten Brown looking like trash.    The three texts were only Dusten’s replies to something Maldonado had said.   Incidentally several courts considered her testimony “not credible,” but of course, with the help of Jessica Munday and Trio she came out smelling like a perfect rose.

Not content with this, Munday, along with the aforementioned Lisa Morris and Johnston Moore of “Home Forever” decided to found the “Coalition for the Protection of Indian Children and Families” an organization that has no discernable purpose whatsoever besides looking good.    Why does Lisa Morris need to be on another board?   And why did Mark Fiddler renew their non profit status this year when nothing has been on their Twitter since September and nothing on their Facebook since JANUARY.   It’s very suspicious.

Then we’re going to add to this mix Brad Caricofe.    Listed at Facebook as being employed at “Advanced Web,” he is the technology brains behind the structure of both Save Veronica Rose and Bring Sonya Home (the Sonya McCaul case is also one to be discussed in more detail later).    He also has a side job, of regurgitating the party line over and over.   In discussions, he never answers a single question and in fact he adds stories on to fuzzy the mix.   Such as starting rumors that Dusten Brown (spelled DUSTIN BROWN, a common enough name) had two other children he was in arrears for child support for.    His mission seemed to be only to sully the waters by finding various Dustin Browns in Oklahoma and using whatever dirt he found on them.   Fact checking was just not something that he did.   In my opinion Dusten Brown has more than enough to sue these people for defamation of character.

Bring Sonya Home and Save Veronica Rose have nearly identical structures and Brad C has been known to do work for Trio and this has been widely admitted by Jessica Munday on several occasions over social media.

So how did these two from South Carolina (Munday) and from Virginia (Caricofe) get involved in a case from Tennessee?   My only theory is that they found out that an illegal adoption can be overturned and they are now covering their butts, even bringing in the old gang.   (The letter for Sonya has many of the SAME SIGNATURES as a similar letter for Veronica written when she was 2, including one Melanie Duncan aka Melanie Capobianco, now officially admitting that she probably harmed the child she claims to love)   

I have no answers there, but they are using the same PR tactics.   One can only hope that this time the people pushing for truth get it across.   

TRUTH is the foundation of all ethical behavior, all Christian behavior.   And it is what we should support and act with at all times.
