Bring Juan Antonio Home!

Our youngest of 9 children, Juan Antonio Buckley, was removed from our loving care by the Spotsylvania, Virginia Department of Social Services (DSS) during a medical crisis in December 2016. He had been a very sick baby, much like his older brothers, and we were doing all we could do. Because, I, John Buckley, am in the Navy, we took Juan Antonio to Walter Reed Military Medical Center when we saw he was not improving. We had already had our son at the University of Virginia medical center where he was released without a clear diagnosis. We were already working and partnering with the Walter Reed staff for our son’s treatment plan when DSS decided to step in and now here we are, 18 months later, still trying to get our son returned to us. The DSS worker grossly misjudged the situation thinking we had been neglecting our son; nothing could be further from the truth. Our 8 other children are in our care and have continually been with us, and we all want Juan Antonio back. We love and miss him beyond words and have done all we can to prove we are fit parents. This is a costly battle, and while we wish we didn't have to ask for help, we do need help. Any amount is appreciated and will go toward our lawyer fees. Find us on FB @BringJuanAntonioHome. You can read about our situation on our friend's blog at: #BuckleyReunification. God bless you. 1 Samuel 12:24.
