This is an open letter to my granddaughter Autumn Destiny DeShawna-
I have found out that you have written a letter to your mother which she will have to read in front of a theripist. The reason is obvious. You a ten year old child think you are old enough to make the decision to live with the foster care provider who is only using you to pay for her house. See post at the bottom of the page.
The decision you are about to make is a life long decision. One that you are not old enough or mature enough to make, One that once done can not ever be undone. You are hurting the very person who loves you with all of her heart. The very person who had you at seventeen years old and could have given you up then – but she didn’t she kept you and finished school. You were there the night she graduated.
Shawna you are part of a big loving family. That you will miss out on because you made this very bad and coerced decision. I know that you have been manipulated by Donna Webb and others to come to this conclusion. The pain and hurt that you have inflicted on your mother will follow you the rest of your life. The consequences of your actions will follow you the rest of your life.
I am sure that no one has explained to you that one day you will want to know about your real family and that someday if you are lucky you will search for your real mother. I only hope that it is not to late. You have already lost almost three years of your life with your mom because you were stolen by Jackson County DCF. You have already lost years that you can never ever get back. Donna cannot give those years to you and she can never be your mom. She will only be a foster care provider and when you are eighteen years old and the money is cut off she will throw you out of the house like yesterday’s newspaper. You will no longer be important to her because the money will no longer be there. The bottom line it is all about the money not the love that a real family has for you.
As a ten year old child you do not have the insight or the experience to know that people will use you and abuse you just to justify their end. Hence it is with Donna Webb. She needs you and your sisters to pay for her new house. It is not about love. It is about things. Remember that. Your Mother Alice Samantha Thomason loves you unconditionally. And someday I pray that you will see that and understand this decision that you have made. If Donna loved you really loved you she would encourage you to be with your real Mother not stay with her just because she needs that money.
I wish you well. I have always loved you from the first time I held you the night you were born. However, I cannot protect you from yourself. Only you can do that.
Read the blog below and you will see why Donna is fighting to keep you and your sisters.
I love you
Today Samantha went back to court – It was interesting – Donna Gordon the 13th caseworker told Samantha in front of her lawyer that last Wednesday Shawna the oldest child who is 10 years old told her that she wanted to be adopted. Really? The question that begs to be asked is just how much coaching and promises were done and made by Donna Webb who is the current foster care provider.
For those of you who don’t know it Donna just built a brand new house in Madison County and is using the money she makes off the three children plus three more to pay for this brand new house. Last year she made over 16,000.00 on the three girls alone. So if she loses them she loses her income. If by chance Samantha loses her children and Donna Adopts them she will make at least 40,000.00 up front then she gets to get a tax deduction for the adoption, then she gets a monthly check for the girls until they are eighteen then she also gets to claim them as dependants and get a child tax credit – So they would create a hole in her pocketbook if Samantha got her kids back.
So it is logical that Shawna who is 10 years old would be coached and told what to say. Now in the state of Ga if parents are getting divorced a child can not decide who they are going to live with until they are 14 years old. The reason is simply they are not old enough to reasonably to make that decision- they have no clue- But yet Donna Gordon at DCF in Jackson County could be allowing a child to make a life altering decision. One that she will regret when she gets older.
All Samantha has left is housing and IF Jackson County was doing their job they would help her with that under title IV -E Funding. Which is what they are supposed to do before they can honestly tell Judge Guidry under oath that they have provided resonable effort in helping to reunify the family.
They are stealing $220.00 every two weeks from her check and there is no way she can find housing without that money. They are trying to force her to say she is done and that she will sign away her children by mental and emotional abuse. First by stealing her check and second by telling her that Shawna wants to be adopted.
But yet Samantha can not talk to her children about it at visitation or else she loses those visits- But Donna Webb the foster care provider can say anything she wants to – She can influence the children by any means necessary to keep them in slavery to collect that money!
