‪Despite our efforts to get a stay (of execution) my beautiful, precious and adoring sister Anastasia Adams was killed yesterday. At 2:40pm, November 16, 2017, her (alleged) abused, starved and dehydrated body could no longer hold on while we her family continued to fight to bring her home to sleep in her own bed under our protection as we her family absolutely positively and unequivocally know is what she wanted. Due to the severe visitations restrictions guardians Labowitz and Heishman put into place Anastasia died alone without her family or friends there to comfort or pray over her.
The family has had several financial setbacks over the last 3-4 years and needs assistance laying Anastasia to rest.  She will be buried beside our parents and eldest brother in California so burial costs are more than usual.

There is also an autopsy being done.  Help the family seek justice 4 Anastasia, seek the justice that was denied Anastasia during the last 9 tortuous months of her life. 

Rest In Peace Anna, Londy loves you and I am so so sorry I failed to save you.

Today while waiting in line for an order I noticed the overhead music was playing the Dionne Warwick song Walk on by. It immediately brought back memories of our parents who are now deceased. Then an instant later I was hit with the overwhelming weight and sorrow that this was a moment and memory my sister and I should be sharing, that this point in time of our lives we are meant to be remembering the dumb stuff we did in our childhood, the “joys” of sharing a bedroom with your sister, things we did that the other one was blamed for by our parents, sitting at the top of the stairs listening and trying to see when our parents had a party, all the enthusiastic games of Spoons that left our mothers silverware almost unrecognizable and our hands battle scarred, memories of watching our mother cooking in the kitchen and wondering why I could cook and she couldn’t boil water; memories of the time security forces picked her up from school to bring her with them to come and get me when “someone called the Base and threatened to “take and harm the Adams girl” and how she initially thought something had happened to our parents and needed her to tell me; memories of her combing my hair and helping get me ready for school; and so so many other memories. It was all I could do to hold it together and not to burst into tears in line - not because she is unable to communicate and share the memories, she it; but because we are not together, she is not home, because she is and has been confined by people and a system that do not value life, do not value her life and her right to liberty and freedom, her right to live. My sister Anastasia deserves to be and should be at home with her family.

It has been just over 100 days since my sister was abducted by Inova Fairfax Hospital and their designated guardians and my heart is as heavy today as it was then. I miss and worry for my sister’s safety every minute of every day. It has been over 100 days and what according to the Fairfax County Circuit Court, Judge Shannon, Inova, Kenneth Labowitz, and the others involved the guardianship should have been terminated by now, yet the guardians are still for all intents and purposes holding my sister captive like she is a prisoner of war in a concentration or internment camp. In 100 days, or just after, U.S. Presidents have turned around banks and the stock market during the great depression; Presidents have bailed out banks, bailed out the automotive industry, passed a plethora of legislation to ensure equal pay for women, nominated supreme court justices, given prior presidents pardon, obtained the release of U.S. diplomats being held hostage, survived assassination attempts, passed stimulus packages, kept plants from closing, and dropped an atomic bomb to end World War II; yet apparently 100 days is not sufficient time for Inova, their designated guardians, or Judge Shannon of the Fairfax County Circuit Court to terminate their IMO questionably legal guardianship and return Anastasia to her family where she was loved and will cared for properly.

When I saw Anastasia on Wednesday she was very pale. Her right hand was still severely swollen, her tongue had absolutely no moisture to it at all, and her eyes were also very dry. The later two both indicate dehydration for members of our family. She still has the pressure sores, her respiration rate is still high, she still has the covering over the iris of her right eye, and they still have not found her $230.00 prescription glasses. I sincerely question whether she is still able to see out of that eye. This is both concerning and heartbreaking.

I have been struggling with whether or not to release certain information I have in my possession and the best time to release certain portions. Preferring to act upon logic versus emotion I have withheld a good deal of information. However, there is one piece of information along with the names of the players that has been provided to me that I feel it necessary and prudent to publish, at least in part, as I believe it provides precise insight into the overall situation. I will release this information over the weekend.

I continue to ask our supporters to pray for the individuals involved, for Gods strength and protection for Anastasia and myself, for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, and that God obliterate this guardianship.

Also I ask everyone to start a weekly, if not daily, writing campaign to Governor Terry McAuliffe, urging him to step in and put a stop to what they are doing.

For if God is for us who dare be against us!

Forgive me for not updating this fund page. I have been posting almost daily updates on Anastasia's website, Facebook and change.org pages. They are set to autopost to each other. I will repost those here as well. For those that do not know Anastasia's dedicated website is http://abductionofanastasia.com, her petition is located at www.change.org/p/10444658, and you may find it on Facebook @abductionofanastasia. we are still in need of funds for the legal fight to get her back home where she belongs. I have found an attorney who will take the case and we need to provide a $10,000 retainer fee so he may get started.

Yesterday's post:

Day 86 - The Gloves Come Off

I am a relatively laid back person. I generally hold a live and let live mentality. It takes a lot to to push me to the point that I am truly done with tolerating anyones foolishness. But as my aunt used to say when a person would show their behind one time too many "they have torn there last good pair of britches with me." So now the gloves come off.

As a recap as to what has transpired since Friday, aside from my broken foot (no I didn't break it off in anyone John brown hind parts); on Friday I drove 45 minutes to see my sister and was told I could not see her. I was told by the facility that the guardian had further restricted my visits to my sister. The called the guardian so he could tell me himself and this man went off yelling like a lunatic. If his voice has been higher and I didn't know better I would have thought is was a woman in hysterics, no lie. You could hear him even without putting the phone to your ear. He threatened to tell the nusing home to call the police and have me arrested if I did not leave the premises immediately. Hystrionics aside, as I am sure the nursing home quickly called back and informed him I have witnesses and proof of this conversation. Welcome to Virginia and federal law, gotta love it!

Hystrionics aside, during the conversation he mentions he sent me an email. So after I leave the nursing home property I check my email to find he, Labowitz has further restricted my visits. I still may visit for one hour three times a week but now I am only allowed to visit on Monday thru Friday and only between the hours of 9-5. I am no longer allowed to visit on weekends.

Today, four days later, I receive another email from Labowitz, first issuing a veiled threat to move my sister several hundred miles away from Northern Virginia:

"Once again the guardians attempt to shift blame to us on why the nursing home staff is rude and why my sister keeps coming up with bruises and injuries, when based on evidence we know that just isn't so.

Guardian Labowitz then goes as far as to issue a veiled threat to move my sister Anastasia "several hundred mikes away from Northern Virginia" if we don't start doing what he says saying:

"The only option once [name if nursing home] is not available will be a search for a facility that will accept her as a patient, and there is a real likelihood that Ms. Adams may be cared for several hundred miles away from Northern Virginia."

His email went on to inform me he was restricting visitation to Anastasia for everyone, for all visitors. All visitors would be restricted to visiting Monday thru Friday and only between the hours of 9-5. Which is the same as completely barring visits because most people work and do not get off until that time. NO ONE is allowed to visit Anastasia on the weekends. Never mind that he prevented our traditional rememberance celebration of our deceased mother on Mothers Day. Or that federal law prohibits ANY nursing facility that accepts Medicare and/or Medicaid funds from barring patients visitors or visiting times. There they go violating federal law and her constitutional rights again.

I have also come across some very very interesting information regarding the players in this situation. I will release that at an appropriate time.

I have been working on the appeal to the VA Supreme Court and starting the Appeal to the 4th Circuit which is why it has been 4 days since I posted an update. Keep you eyes peeled and check back because when I finish that I will be uploading a bunch of goodies that will answer ALOT of questions and you will not want to miss.

Until then I would like to leave Anastasia's supporter with this quandary:

A "professional guardian" means a guardian appointed by a court who is not a member of the incapacitated person's family and who charges fees for carrying out the duties of court-appointed guardian of three or more incapacitated persons. The question is Question Is.... Can an individual properly and effectively look after, protect and care for 120+ people with increased or special needs? Think about it and post your thoughts.

Have a Blessed night!
