In my case (Lydia A. Hubbell), my daughter’s father continues to interfere in my relationship with her, and I know he will continue to do so since he has been so well-rewarded for the past 4 years. I have not seen Dilara since April 18, but am scheduled to see her from 3-5 this Saturday, June 16, 2018. My visits continue to be supervised, despite the fact that I never have harmed or endangered her. I was in court today and got a date for my Motion to Alter or Amend heard. October 23, 2018 at 1 p.m. I continue to put updates on Facebook. “Bring Dilara Home” is a public group page. After 3 weeks of being denied court-ordered phone calls, I was allowed to speak with her last night, but her father pretty much ruined the experience for us. Poor Dilara seems almost afraid to open her mouth and say anything. Despite being told to not monitor the phone calls, he continues to do so and he continues to threaten to end the call if we talk about something he doesn’t want us to. It is such a sad and sick situation. I look forward to being able to have a normal conversation with her on Saturday, but we have a new visitation supervisor and I don’t know how comfortable we will be. It is outrageous that these unlawful and harmful restrictions continue to be placed on us. Dilara complains, but continues to get no relief. Her GAL, Sharline Pye-Mack, continues to be absolutely worthless as far as advocating for Dilara.
We are also very focused on the case of Annalise Rivenburg. She has been in foster care since Feb. 2017 when she and her brother, Steffen Rivenburg, Jr., were removed from their family by DCS. Baby Steffen was killed while in DCS custody June 8, 2018. The Rivenburgs have a court date in July and between now and then, we will work to draw even more attention to the case and we hope Annalise will be returned to the family before school starts in August. http://medicalkidnap.com/2017/07/06/tennessee-family-wants-daughter-and-sister-of-deceased-baby-steffen-to-come-home/
July 17 and 18 we are planning to support Whitney Manning in Kingsport, Tennessee as she fights for her daughter and grandsons. http://medicalkidnap.com/2018/03/08/disabled-virginia-mom-arrested-with-no-warrant-no-charges-because-health-impact-news-exposed-her-story/
I am sorry that my Dilara, who will turn 10 in October and will more than likely spend the 4th birthday in a row without me being with her, continues to be held captive, but I believe God is going to bring good out of our ordeal.
We will be electing a new Tennessee Governor this year. Primaries are Aug. 2 and the election is in November. I am going to be working with others in the movement to try to educate the candidates and hope that whoever wins the election will address the corruption as far as he is able, and to appoint a new DCS commissioner who will show more concern for the well-being of children than the previous ones have. We all want children to be safe and healthy. We know there are serious cases of abuse or neglect that warrant removal, but we also know that too many children are removed from “good enough” parents, and that DCS caseworkers often lie and make misrepresentations to the court in order to terminate parental rights when less drastic remedies are available.
I am encouraging people to learn about “Freedom Summer 1964” and take action in the next 6 or 7 weeks ago to encourage everyone they know to get registered to vote before July 3 to vote in the primaries. https://www.rockthevote.org/voting-information/election-dates-deadlines/tennessee/
We are planning several events over the next few weeks and I am calling this #FamilyFreedomSummer2018 and I hope to be in Washington D.C. September 7-11 for a Family Preservation Rally.
