This 9 year old boy died in the hands of his stepmother and his father. The man that vowed to protect him and took him to Idaho to live a better life. Emrik went through a lot these past 3 years and this wasn't fair. The abuse he went through and the torture while his father knew and did nothing.
Emrik was taken from his mother in 2018 and separated from his siblings and put into the foster care system. Only for the foster care system who said he couldn't go with his grandma (from mothers side) or family friend being that they believed in reuniting him with his father first. Despite everybody saying his father hasn't been present and they didn't like that he would be moving to another state. Emrik was only 1 years old when his father stopped being present in his life, but since he was the father they deemed him a priority for reunification. At the age of 6 years old they reunited him with his father and allowed him to move from Santa Ana to Idaho so he can live with his father's wife and other children.
This story is another example of how the system fails and they claim to have the child's best interest in mind. How was this the best for the child? Was there a background check on this wife? Did anybody fly to Idaho to inspect where they were living? So many kids are falling through the cracks. Please don't let this be your child. Please get the help.
Emrik Osuna was born in Santa Ana and we would like to raise money to fly him back from Idaho where he can be given a proper burial. Please help us bury him in the city he was born in. Thank you.
My name is Antonette Edwards and I am friend of his mothers. I am raising this money on behalf of her and his family. The funds are going to his family to bring Emrik from Idaho and help with the funding for his funeral. Emrik deserves to be here in Orange County and not in Idaho and a place where we can all visit him.
Please stop placing a hold on this account so we can get this done. Thank you.
