Defendant Joyce Williams, Licensed Professional Counselor being hereby named in both her individual and official capacities, is an individual, is a contracted employee of Wake County Human Services, and is listed on staff at Carolina Psychological Health Services in Jacksonville, North Carolina also providing services to other Defendants in Wake County, North Carolina and was at all times material, pertinent and relevant hereto. Current mailing address is; c/o Carolina Psychological Health Services, 1703 Country Club Road, Suite 204, Jacksonville, North Carolina 28546. The Defendant was in fact, acting under the authority or color of state law at the time these claims occurred in that while in her official capacity as a contracted Licensed Professional Counselor for WCHS her execution of Wake County Human Services’ and Carolina Psychological Health Services’ “customs” and/or “policies” were the moving force behind her unconstitutional acts, and that personally, her individual unconstitutional acts violated the clearly established constitutional rights of the Plaintiffs of which a reasonable official would have known, Davis v. Scherer (1984). In addition, she did act under the authority or color of state law when she acted in concert with local officials, including but not limited to, WCHS social workers, their supervisors, county attorneys and others, causing harm to the Plaintiffs in effecting the deprivation of rights, Dennis v. Sparks (1980).
My one and only opportunity to have any conversation of substance with this so-called therapist came during a conference call on January 19, 2011… The following is an email addressed to Julie Riggins detailing excerpts from the transcript of the call…
Regarding the meeting with Ms. Williams via conference call on January 19,2011…
In attendance in the conference room on the 4th floor of WCHS located on 220 Swinburne St. were Ronald Reale (respondent father), Myron Yandle (Ronald Reale’s Pastor), Julie Riggins (social worker), Pauline Handrahan (social worker). In attendance via telephone was Ms. Williams of Carolina Psychological Health Services in Jacksonville, NC.
One of the first topics of discussion was that of the recent allegations by Julie Riggins through testimony at a hearing on December 16, 2010, alleging that I had some communication with Ms. Williams (my children’s so-called therapist) that prompted her, and her supervisor, to prohibit a meeting in person between her and myself. That testimony stated in part; “It is also concerning to the court that a therapist treating the four oldest children has stated she will not agree to meet face to face with Ronald Reale per the recommendations of her supervising Psychologist and given prior communication by Mr. Reale.” This testimony was a straight-up LIE and was disputed by me in a response to the draft order where I stated in part, “I had absolutely zero contact with the therapist in question. I do not even know the therapists name! According to Julie Riggins of WCHS, she will give me her name 5 minutes before I am to meet with her. Julie Riggins of WCHS has been the liaison from the beginning with this therapist. On November 14, 2010 Julie Riggins of WCHS advised me that there would be a meeting between me and the therapist in two weeks. That meeting has not taken place as of December 23, 2010. That is a fact! Julie Riggins of WCHS made the statement in a hearing on December 16, 2010, ’that the therapist treating the four oldest children has stated she will not agree to meet face-to-face with Ronald Reale per the recommendations of her supervising psychologist and given prior communications by Mr. Reale.’ What communication? There was no foundation or basis provided with this statement. There were absolutely no evidentiary findings as to the origin, factual validity, or any other corroboration whatsoever!”
I made the following statement at the start of the conference call with Ms. Williams; “I was informed for the first time through Julie’s testimony at a hearing on December 16 that you were not willing to meet with me in person or by phone, and that your supervisor had recommended that action.” To which she interjected stating, “actually what it comes down to is, you all would have to pay for every hour that I was traveling and meeting.” I then responded stating; “I offered to come there and meet with you and I think that was our original plan. Julie and I had originally decided that obviously I was going to come there and not have you travel this far. So was there any reason we could not meet in person other than that?” She responded, “We decided to do it this way and I think its actually much more efficient.” I responded, “So That’s the reason, for efficiency?” She then stated, ”That’s a guess on my part, I would also want Julie’s opinion.” I then expressed my concern “that it was represented to the court in a court order as a statement of fact, by Julie, through her direct testimony that I had done something through some sort of communication that had prompted you and your supervisor to decide to prohibit a meeting with me in person.” She stated, “Actually I’m more confused than ever.” Based on the result of this part of the conversation I have to say that I am the one who is confused. This is the same “agenda related” rhetoric and play on words that has been a top priority of WCHS from the start. Clearly you (Julie Riggins) misled the court into believing that there was something awry here, with regard to setting up a meeting between myself and the therapist meeting with my children when there was nothing of the sort. There has NEVER been any real justification for your agency abducting my children. The miscarriage of justice in this case is at levels insurmountable as compared to anything else I have ever experienced.
As I continue to explore the rest of the conversation that resulted from this conference call, there were several issues of concern that were discussed. For example, I was informed during this conversation that the children have been allegedly diagnosed with Adjustment Disorder. When I asked for clarification stating, “what else have they been diagnosed with?” Ms. Williams responded, “nothing else.” She went on to further reiterate that “the children are without both parents, they are adjusting to a new school, and a new home, a new world, etc.” Of course I would prefer to expound by adding that my children have never attended daycare and never been subjected to the brashness of a public school setting.
So how do I feel about PUBLIC SCHOOLS and how do I think they contribute to such stressors that might trigger this type of residual disorder?
Unfortunately, public schools, even in the “best” neighborhoods, can harm our kids in many ways. Many spend almost 50 percent of the school day on non-academic subjects that waste children’s time. The rest of their time is spent on classes such as sex-education, consumer affairs, AIDS education, or save-the-environment and believe it or not – even Trans-Gender Acceptance. They teach “new” or “fuzzy” math. These instruction methods can cripple children’s ability to learn basic arithmetic. The textbooks are often geared to the slowest learners in the class and water-down the subject matter. This is especially true for children who are quick learners (my son SRR is a great example of a quick learner), who must endure 12 years in public school classes. Incompetent or mediocre teachers aren’t fired because tenure laws protect them. That’s why they will never improve and will always waste children’s time. Many subject children to drugs, bullies, violence, and values many parents disapprove of. They pressure many parents who have bright, normal children to give their kids mind-altering drugs to make the bored kids “behave” in class (Nancy Brake even spoke often of this in her WCHS Parenting Classes that I was forced to attend – very disturbing). Kids line up for Ritalin every day in public schools across America. Public schools can destroy children’s love of learning and self-confidence as learners. This can often deflate children’s ambitions and desire to go to college. They force millions of Christian parents to hand over their children to public schools which are decidedly anti-Christian. For example, many textbooks used in public schools have censored out references to such words as ‘family,’ ‘marriage,’ ‘religion,’ ‘fidelity,’ etc. Many textbooks today refer to a family simply as people choosing to live together.
In stark contrast to our family views, Christian beliefs, and our experience; your assessment and moreover your support of public schools was clear in your email on Monday, November 15, 2010…
“Both SRR and MRR came into the public school setting at an educational level below where they should normally be for their age. I think both, however, are cognitively capable of catching up with their peers. Same goes for HMR.” SMR was young enough that her not having been exposed to a structured academic program (absurd) really hasn’t put her too far behind. While she wasn’t on the expected reading level, overall, the 1st grade is when almost all students begin to read much better anyway”. You cannot substantiate any of these claims. More rhetoric! Contradicting your previous statements about my children’s education, in your court report on October 20, 2010 you stated the following, “SRR, SMR, and MRR seem to be doing okay.” Regarding TRR, in your report dated July 28, 2010 you stated; “In Pennsylvania, TRR was found to be below grade level for his age and he was recommended to attend tenth grade in the fall.” Did you know that TRR was held back 2x in his lifetime? I didn’t think so, because you never asked nor did you even begin to think to ask or include that in any sort of investigation. What you did was “assume” that he was homeschooled in his most recent years and that must be the reason he is below grade level for his age. So what have the courts to say regarding this controversial topic?
Hodgson v. Minnesota, 497 U.S. 417 (1990)
In Hodgson the Court found that parental rights not only are protected under the First and Fourteenth Amendments as fundamental and more important than property rights, but that they are “deemed essential.”
The family has a privacy interest in the upbringing and education of children and the intimacies of the marital relationship which is protected by the Constitution against undue state interference. See Wisconsin v Yoder, 7 406 US 205 … The statist notion that governmental power should supersede parental authority in all cases because some parents abuse and neglect children is repugnant to American tradition.” In other words, under this precedent, parents’ rights to control the education of their children is considered a “constitutionally protected right” which requires the application of the compelling interest test. The Court in Smith quoted its previous case of Wisconsin v. Yoder:
Yoder said that “The Court’s holding in Pierce stands as a charter for the rights of parents to direct the religious upbringing of their children. And when the interests of parenthood are combined with a free exercise claim … more than merely a reasonable relationship to some purpose within the competency of the State is required to sustain the validity of the State’s requirement under the First Amendment.” 406 U.S., at 233.20 [emphasis supplied]
Instead of merely showing that a regulation conflicting with parents’ rights is reasonable, the state must, therefore, reach the higher standard of the “compelling interest test,” which requires the state to prove its regulation to be the least restrictive means.
Essentially, CPS, the GAL and the Wake County Court System are complicit and even directly responsible for my children exhibiting any alleged symptoms of adjustment disorder whatsoever. In fact, your relentless efforts and direct violation of the court order for a period of over 90 days to keep the children from visiting with me was also a contributing factor. AND THE COURTS STOOD BY AND ALLOWED IT! You took the same steps against my wife Debra depriving them of any contact with her, but you were more disguised through your “empty promises to her.” You have required that she leave the State of North Carolina and even required that she maintain a Full-Time job (with 7 kids to care for), specifically stating and demanding that she is “self-sufficient rather than relying on Mr. Reale (her husband of 12 years and the father of their 8 children) or his personal connections, including obtaining suitable housing.” In your Court report dated July 28, 2010 you noted, “Mrs. Reale appears to need assistance in this area. While she denies any contact with Mr. Reale, she continues to involve herself in situations that are governed by Mr. Reale – such as housing, car ownership, utilities, income, etc.” The GAL states the same in their report dated July 20, 2010 after also noting in their report, ”There are no allegations of abuse by the mother, Mrs. Reale.” Clearly your agency is very dependent on children for financial gain. Financially speaking, it is in your best interest to “keep them” in need of your services, whatever you deem that to be. This gang of thugs and bullies affectionately known as The Wake County Family Court System is a disgrace to our legal system. I intend to continue my efforts by dedicating my very existence to protecting the rights of my wife and children in this case and then some.
I find the following information to be quite interesting with regard to how this alleged Adjustment Disorder is viewed throughout the psychiatric community.
“The American Psychiatric Association considers adjustment disorder to be a residual category, meaning that the diagnosis is given only when an individual does not meet the criteria for a major mental disorder. For example, if a person fits the more stringent criteria for major depressive disorder , the diagnosis of adjustment disorder is not given.”
“Prognosis: Adjustment disorders usually get better quickly without any remaining symptoms.”
Based on this alleged diagnosis, it’s definition, and the conditions WCHS has allowed my children to remain, I have to say that it directly lines up with all of my claims, communication and contact with WCHS, the GAL, and the courts over the past several months. In short, your so-called system and each of you individually are directly responsible for exposing my children to such adverse conditions. I diagnosed them months ago. My diagnosis…Missing their family!
For example: in an email I composed on November 9, 2010.
“I am more concerned about your statement where you say “the children are in therapy.” Since they have been in your custody (well over 4 months) they have attended one (1) intake appointment and only recently, several months later, they have attended their 1st therapy session (just this past week). With all the rhetoric about nightmares and fear (statements made in several of your documents after only a single intake appointment) I am shocked to think that if any of this were even remotely true that they would not be provided with better services than that. On the contrary, what I suspect is that they are being manipulated by your system with your play on words and once again your convenient placement of distorted facts. The truth is, you are likely keenly aware that there is no real urgency for any type of therapy and therefore you are treating the situation as such.
However, what I am attempting to do is to err on the side of caution by taking the approach that if there is a chance this 8 month ordeal has impacted them negatively. I would prefer they receive the proper evaluation by an independent licensed therapist and follow-up with recommended therapy (if any). I also see the opportunity to establish how “separation anxiety” (from both parents) combined with this 8 month uprooting from their normal, everyday life has truly affected them vs. CPS claims of unsubstantiated abuse, now being described as “a possibility (or a likelihood) that some of his actions/words could have been taken by his children to being hurtful”. Also, we are talking about 6 children ages 3-11 that have been living with a virtual stranger, thrown into a household with a 24-year-old girl in the process of finalizing a divorce from her husband of only 2 years. Relative or not, the last time SRR and MRR saw Natasha or any member of Debra’s family they were ages 1 and 3. HMR, SMR, BRR, and JRR were not even born and therefore never knew any of them. I haven’t even mentioned the fact that they have been dragged from North Carolina to California, back to Pittsburgh, then to North Carolina, back again to Pittsburgh, and again to North Carolina (Raleigh) and ultimately ended up in Jacksonville; All factors that absolutely should be considered when any legitimate evaluation is to be conducted. None of which were mentioned in their so-called ”intake” evaluations.”
And again in an email to my attorney on November 10, 2010…
I am very concerned with the CPS decision not to allow a “proper” independent evaluation of my children. Below is a brief outline of Separation Anxiety Disorder. On multiple occasions I have been told by Julie and Dr. Yoch that the children are experiencing these very symptoms (nightmares and fear). As you can see, if untreated it is surmised that “children suffering from separation anxiety disorder are much more likely to have ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Panic Disorder, and other disorders later in life.” I believe CPS is selectively “treating” my children according to their own agenda not the actual needs of my children. There has been no mention in any report or any conversation throughout this process of the potential that “separation anxiety” could be the root cause of any symptoms expressed by my children. I am deeply concerned! I am further concerned that there is a plan in place to uproot them once again in December to Pittsburgh. I would like to address and challenge both the denial of my request to have them evaluated independently, and to challenge any attempt to remove them from the state for any reason until they receive a proper evaluation and treatment if recommended.
VARIOUS SOURCES – SEPARATION ANXIETY DISORDER
Separation Anxiety Disorder is a psychological condition in which an individual experiences excessive anxiety regarding separation from home or from people to whom the individual has a strong emotional attachment (like a father, mother, grandparents)
Separation Anxiety Disorder is often characterized by some of the following symptoms:
- Recurring distress when separated from the subject of attachment (such as significant other, the father or the mother, or home)
- Persistent, excessive worrying about losing the subject of attachment
- Persistent, excessive worrying that some event will lead to separation from a major attachment
- Excessive fear about being alone without subject of attachment
- Persistent reluctance or refusal to go to sleep without being near a major attachment figure, like a mother or father
- Recurrent nightmares about separation
Often, separation anxiety disorder is a symptom of a co-morbid condition. Studies show that children suffering from separation anxiety disorder are much more likely to have ADHD, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, and other disorders later in life.
How Is Separation Anxiety Disorder Diagnosed?
As with adults, mental illness in children is diagnosed based on signs and symptoms that suggest a particular disorder. If symptoms are present, the doctor will begin an evaluation by performing a complete medical history and physical exam. Although there are no laboratory tests to specifically diagnose separation anxiety disorder, the doctor may use various tests — such as X-rays and blood tests — to rule out physical illness or medication side effects as the cause of the symptoms.
If no physical illness is found, the child may be referred to a child and adolescent psychiatrist or psychologist, mental health professionals who are specially trained to diagnose and treat mental illness in children and teens. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed interview and assessment tools to evaluate a child for a mental illness. The doctor bases his or her diagnosis on reports of the child’s symptoms and his or her observation of the child’s attitude and behavior.
What Is the Outlook for Children With Separation Anxiety Disorder?
Although their symptoms may recur for many years, particularly when stressful events or situations occur. When treatment is started early and involves the family as well as the child, the child’s chance of recovery improves.
In an email on Friday, November 12, 2010 I composed the following…
You call that “reunification efforts”! Furthermore, you can use the word reunification as often as you like, but I don’t believe there is any reason to believe (by your actions) that you are truly working toward that goal much less that you would allow my children to visit with me. Neither suits your agenda. Interesting that you describe MY children as “happy” and “well cared for” when you just as easily describe them as “experiencing nightmares” and expressing “fear”, which is extremely concerning to me. They cannot possibly be “Happy” if they have been displaying these symptoms and not at all “Well Cared For” having only been to a licensed therapist once in 4 months. I can promise you that litigation is far from over in this case. As I have stated before, I will continue to fight for the rights of my children, my wife and myself.
Where is the abuse? You’ve been making allegations from the start without one shred of support or evidentiary findings. In fact, it’s becoming more clear that you’ve known for quite some time that there was never any abuse (emotional or physical) and that there was no real justification to remove our children. And the best you can come up with is alleging Adjustment Disorder? This is fraud! Evidenced back to the start when your agency visited our home on 3 separate occasions (amounting to harassment) in October, 2009 and January 2010, and in turn issued 2 safety reports indicating a “safe” home and no signs of abuse, neglect or any other concerns whatsoever along with a letter of findings, declaring “no abuse,” both cases closed. Despite the issuance of a safety report, I find it interesting that “later” in your court report dated July 28, 2010 you indicated the following about the visit in January, “The children appeared fearful while talking to the worker and that Mrs. Reale and the children feared Mr. Reale.” FRAUD! You then stated in your Court Report dated July 28, 2010, “Mrs. Reale continues to state that the allegations she made against Mr. Reale were false and she stated that she coached the children to lie about Mr. Reale because she wanted to get away from him because the couple was simply not happy in their marriage. She admits to doing the same type of thing before, in 2002… Mrs. Reale adamantly denies that anything she has said in the past against her spouse was true but says she will do whatever we ask her to do so she can get her children back. She reports that getting the children is her only focus and that she will worry about the marriage later.” This is the type of fear and intimidation tactic used to coerce my wife into doing whatever “you think” is in her best interest. Regarding your reference to the 2002 separation you were provided with a FINAL REPORT conducted in 2002 by Florida CPS and an independent Custody Evaluation also conducted in 2002 during our 3 month separation. As you have known all along, in 2002 several disgruntled family members called CPS and made similar allegations in an effort to satisfy their own agenda. You can view the results of the Florida CPS Report and the Custody Evaluation by clicking on my BLOG POST from June 13, 2011;
During the conference call with Ms. Williams, I also asked if she could speak to allegations of the children exhibiting “fear” or having “nightmares.” Ms. Williams stated, “I never said that.” I then replied, “So they are not experiencing nightmares?” to which she replied, “I never said that either, adding “all children have nightmares from time to time. They are not exhibiting anything that I wouldn’t consider to be normal or what any child might experience.” This was an allegation specifically generated by your agency (CPS) and later inserted into my psychological evaluation and discussed by Dr. Yoch during the assessment. During the call I expressed my concern for these prior allegations generated by WCHS to which you replied, “Mr. Reale is blowing this all out of proportion, our agency never thought of those statements as anything more that what normal children experience.” In fact, the psychological evaluation completed by Dr. Yoch states the following, “When he was read examples of the children’s concerns as voiced during the July mental health evaluations (e.g. nightmares, fear of him) he seemed to doubt the veracity of these reports and was glad to hear that MRR made supportive statements about his father.” The GAL in their Notice of Intent to Introduce Residual Hearsay Evidence stated; ”The children are unavailable to testify given their long-established fear of the respondent father…Additionally some of the children experience nightmares regarding the respondent father.”
It was revealed by Ms. Williams that “HMR ”absolutely” wants to visit with me, SMR was ‘iffy’ but that goes up and down, and the boys MRR and SRR do not want to visit.” When I asked why the boys did not want to visit she never really provided an answer. She did state the following, “The children never disrespect you; do you understand what I am saying?” She then followed that up with, “let me say it in a different way; they never talk bad about you.” So how does that line up with the inflammatory statements your agency and the GAL has made throughout this process littered with allegations of emotional and physical abuse? How do you stand by all those inflammatory statements and false allegations? In one paragraph on page 7 of your Court Report dated July 28, 2010 you stated, “All of the children seem to have been affected in some way. They are all somewhat timid and the oldest five tend to hold their bodies in a position with their heads down and their shoulders turned inward… the oldest ones are especially having difficulty with their mother and understanding why she has changed the story about what happened behind closed doors in their family.” In the very next paragraph on the same page (7); “these children are very polite and generally easy to engage in conversation.” HMMMM! How do you reconcile those statements? The GAL made similar positive statements about the children in his report dated July 20, 2010 stating; “I must note how well-behaved all the children were on the day I visited. The children warmed up to a new visitor quickly and before long were comfortable being themselves, they all interacted with each other with no discrepancies. The four youngest children are playful and full of life.” What? No more timidness or “holding their bodies with their heads down and their shoulders turned inward?” It’s a MIRACLE! or FRAUD!
It should be noted that in October SRR was the only one who was not wanting to attend visits. In December at a hearing on regarding visitation it was announced that MRR only wants to visit with me once. By January 19, 201 during the conference call with their therapist it was revealed that SMR was not willing and that neither SRR or MRR were willing to attend visits. What an interesting pattern. Parental alienation at its finest, and the court has supported this ridiculous tragedy 100%, and therefore is also complicit and culpable. By the way SRR also declined to visit with his mom in July when she had her first visit. Later he attended the next visit and when she asked why he was not willing to come see her last time, he said “because of the court thing.”
You should be keenly aware by now that I have NEVER admitted to any abuse whatsoever, nothing has EVER been proven because none has ever existed. Period! In various emails and even testimony in court I continue to deny that any abuse has ever existed in our home. My staunch denials have been recognized and recorded as a “finding of fact” in every order entered by this court since the adjudication on August 26, 2010. The most recent order dated January 14, 2011 states in part; “That since the date of adjudication and disposition, Mr. Reale has denied…and disputes that he was ever physically aggressive to his wife or children.
To date only one document has ever been prepared for the court my this Joyce Williams LPC. She produced a letter for the Reunification hearing, clearly conspiring with CPS in an attempt to refute any positive reports from the current visits. The letter includes prejudicial and inflammatory statements designed to describe the children and their feelings about my wife and I. There is even specific irrefutable evidence of at least one LIE about a statement made by me son SRR.
Dear Ms. Riggins,
SMR, HMR, MRR, and SRR have been coming to therapy since their foster care placement in Onslow County. (This is a LIE! They have been in Onslow County placement since June. You did not start seeing them until November, quite the variance!) At this time SMR, HMR, MRR as well as two younger children have supervised visitations with their father. SMR and HMR are enamored with the visits. They get fast food, gifts and their father focuses pleasant attentions on them. (what does feeding them dinner have to do with anything? Or gifts for that matter, when the visits finally started after NO CONTACT for over 200 days? I was asked to provide dinner for my children. They are being picked up at school for early dismissal at approximately 2:00pm, forced to travel 3+ hours one-way and over 150 miles one-way to visit with me, each and every visit. Yes, that’s right, over 6 hours of driving and 300 miles for one visit that lasts only 1-1/2 hours. Truly torturous conditions if you ask me! Of course I should provide dinner for them. Fast Food? What else would this so-called LPC suggest?) MRR goes to the visits but has begun to ask questions about the family. He wants to understand how his father can change so fast and if his father is going to continue treating them as he has during the visits. (Gee, I wonder if this could have anything to do with the fact that we only have 1-1/2 hours together every two weeks in a room no more than 10′ x 10′ to accomodate myself, my five children and the observer? Maybe there is something to the fact that I am no longer the authority figure in his day-to-day life? Would anyone suggest that I do something differently, like ignore them or not show my unconditional love and devotion to them while we visit. Of course he is confused! You are arguing my position for me very well Ms. Williams.) SRR has not attended the visits because he does not want to. (I noticed there are no details. I cannot get an answer to my question as to why? I can only refer to this LPC’s previous statement whereby she says on the record “The children never disrespect you; do you understand what I am saying?” She then followed that up with, “let me say it in a different way; they never talk bad about you.” Really??? So where is my answer Ms. Williams? Why does my 12-year-old son simply decide not to visit with his father while my other five seem to be perfectly fine with the visits? Even described as “clingy, wanting the visits to continue, not wanting to wait two weeks for the next visit, etc.” I can’t wait to get you in court to find out exactly what you have been doing to my children behind closed doors. What sort of indoctrination program have you exposed them too?) According to what he (SRR) remembers, his father’s behaviors changed once before and he treated the children and their mother much better but after a few months reverted back to old behaviors. (What behaviors? Here we go! This is a blatant BOLD FACED LIE! My wife and I separated once before in 2001-02 when SRR was just 2 years old. WOW! What a memory. What this actually proves is that he continues to be coached by this so-called LPC, CPS and its agents. Period!)
Their living situation is confusing for the children and has caused several of them a great deal of stress. Their social skills were below age level when they were placed in foster care. (How do YOU know this? My children were taken into custody in June and you did not see them until November??? In fact, they were not seen by anyone at all. Yet you claim to speak to their condition at the time of their placement in foster care. Hey, I have a thought; maybe your observations when you began your indoctrination sessions in November were the result of my 6 minor children being placed in the custody of a 24-year-old stranger Natasha Wilde who was smack dab in the middle of a divorce at only 24; while she was also accommodating and exposing my 6 minor children to her “live-in” boyfriend while still married, another stranger, among other tragic events and circumstances at the time of their placement. Not to even mention their abrupt removal from their loving mother and father. As Bill O’Reilly of FOX NEWS often says… You truly are a PINHEAD ma’am; and you call yourself a therapist?) These skills are improving. They are learning more about socializing but still need to learn more about the benefits of a positive home environment. None of the children understand the need to take ownership and care for their things (they are children ma’am! What are you talking about? They are 6 minor children ages 3, 4, 7, 8, 10 & 12. They need direction to develop such things. Direction in the form of love and kindness combined with setting expectations and providing accountability that can only be distributed properly by their parents from whom they have never been apart, until now. They can certainly not develop these traits under the tutelage of a 24-year-old young girl who gets through each day on depression medication.), such as clothing find items given to them. Speculation is that not having such things (not having such things? They have always had everything they needed… without question – speculation is the right word, since you know nothing about our home or our home life other than what has been told to you by county agencies who are hardly reliable themselves) they don’t know what to do or having received them in foster care, a short-term environment, it does not matter to them.
There are a few concerns about the children at this time; Unfortunately MRR often treats his sisters poorly and without respect. (I can not speak to his current behavior since I have not been in that place where my children are being held captive, but I can say that he NEVER treated his sisters or anyone else in any way that I would classify as disrespectful at just 9 years old; especially his 7 & 8 year old sisters! I can say that it is very likely that his current environment can not possibly be providing him with the love of a mother and father nor with clearly defined expectations and accountability that is absolutely compulsory when raising children.) Children treat others in ways they have learned from same-sex parent. (Ah yes, of course, but then again, you know very well Ms. Williams that you have never met me; and if I had to guess, you would likely say you would never want to, since you have repeatedly declined my offers for a meeting and for regular phone updates.) The children are under stress not knowing what is going to be done to them as far as who they will live with and where and under what conditions. They do have some ideas. (Yes, they have been told specifically “the judge has approved them to live with mom, but not dad… What kind of thing is that to say to young children? It is truly despicable to know the filth you are all spewing into their precious, impressionable minds.) The one thing each of the children seen in therapy at CPHS says they want is a stable home life. They very strongly wish to live with their mother, each has stated that they like how their father acts now but their mother has always treated them well. (Their father has always been the ONLY one in the house to carry out any form of discipline and the ONLY one who has been willing to hold them accountable for their actions as should be the responsibility of both parents. My wife would certainly concur with these previous statements.)
By the way, I see no mention of the alleged “adjustment disorder” but I bet you cash the checks from medicaid for the billing code used to identify such a diagnosis. I’ll be wanting to see those documents in Federal Court ma’am!
