My story is heart breaking, it involves child deaths so understanding what my family suffered could help save others. In the early 1990's my young daughter told me she was being abused by her step dad. I was mortified and immediately hired the best family law lawyer in town for a steep fee.
My husband and I have also been wrongfully accused of child abuse. On Aug 14, we took our 2 month son to the ER because he wasn't using his arm like usual. He ended up having a left radial fracture and since we didn't know how it happened, they sent us to a larger hospital in San Diego, CA to get examined by the "child abuse team." After more X-rays and a CT scan, they found he had an old healed rib fracture, 2 skull fractures, and a subdural hematoma. My son has been a good baby and had only been fussy after eating due to acid reflux and gas issues, but was easily consolable.
My story involves my son and my grandson.
When my son got together with Nicole she was already pregnant with her second child. We soon learned that Nicoles first child had been abused by the father. Nicole had relinquished her Parental Rights to this child and the Courts deemed her unfit. My family never once considered how Nicoles past would have such a horrible impact on our lives.
