Please join us in our recent case we’re advocating for:
This family has been through too much to even say in one post. From this mom being a victim of domestic sex trafficking herself. To being physically abused and tormented by her first husband, who had later been convicted of sex trafficking. Moving states to get away from him. After about 9 years of being single she decided to take a chance. She did everything right. He Didn’t meet the kids until after 6 months. And they always met in a public place. After awhile they eventually got married. Then signs started to show with Micheal. He dragged this Mom down the stairs while pregnant. Through a cleaning bottle at her daughters head. 3 out of the 5 kids have disclosed sexual abuse and assault by this Disgusting excuse for a man, Micheal. She couldn’t do anything to get away from him because he was always showing up. She walked in on him masterbating next to her one year old on the bed while rubbing his “back.” Nebraska system says that is NOT considered sexual assault. Then, in the middle of Disney Land, he was punched by a woman who claimed he was touching himself while looking at her daughter. He’s gotten away with way too many things that make you question just how messed up the “officials” in NE are! Not to mention his own parents were arrested when found in possession of a video of them raping a mentally ill child!
Now mind you, NE law states that they have to prove the mother unfit to have her rights taken away. The only thing they do is doc her for every breathe she takes, heaven forbid she cancel because her son is sick, heaven forbid she call 911 when her daughter tells her to CALL 911, she’s “meddling.”! This mother has done nothing but try to protect her family, her babies. Yet it seems she’s the one on trial? for what? Because you don’t like her stepping on your toes and telling you when something isn’t right? Because she’s gone above and beyond for y’all and you didn’t want or expect her to? “Child best interest” is always THE WORKERS BEST INTEREST. The Social worker even wanted to tell me one thing on the phone and then Tell the mother another thing! Sorry hun, I have it recorded!! So tired of the broken system that claims to be for safety of children and families but either do nothing or allow for further trauma.
WE NEED KAILY BACK HOME IN HER MOMS CARE! WE NEED MICHEAL CHARGED WITH WHAT HE SHOULD BE! and then this family needs our assistance in moving so that not only does the oldest’s dad not find them (thanks RABECCA) but also so Micheal cannot retaliate and come after them AGAIN!
We need to raise enough money to continue to pay for an attorney, and enough money to get Kaily home and the whole family moved to SAFETY!!
Kaily has been sexually abused, Physically abused and emotionally abused. She disclosed the abuse but then was made to feel like a liar. She disclosed abuse/neglect and harmful environment within the Foster placements, but then reprimanded by said Foster parents because of the lack of protecting her, the CPS worker Rebecka just disclosing what she said to the Foster parents without following protocol.
This led to Kaily not wanting to say anything anymore or retract what she would previously say because she does not feel SAFEunder this state employee's care. The very system that is put in place to protect her.
She’s been placed in homes that are not on her guidelines of placement; without younger children. She’s not received the proper medical treatment/therapy that is needed for her to succeed. Americans with Disability Act, includes mental health. Then we have the breaking of confidentiality of personal and/or medical information to the school staff at which she was attending. The unethical breaking of this confidential information has led to her being removed from school grounds, humiliated, tormented, and further traumatized by this Social worker Rebecka. Communication with the school and unethically breaking confidentiality that impeded on the best interest of the child is two very different things. Punishable by law and Social Worker ethical standards.
Because of the lack of proper understanding, documentation, information, training, following protocol, and just doing the job as it is titled, all of the actions done by the State have further impeded on her mental growth development and functioning. This would include but not limited to her social, cognitive, psychosocial, emotional, and physical development and functioning.
Not having proper therapy, care and needs met, increases the risks of these development stages to be delayed or impeded on. In which is harmful to the child.
The lack of care for Kaily’s mental health and well-being, is clearly evident to not be abiding by the state and federal laws of a ward minor. Nor the Strengthing Families Act that indicates the minor is to be provided with normalcy on all levels for their appropriate age.
Kaily is capable of going back to her mother’s care, where she belongs, but the case worker has done everything for this not to happen. So, I ask you this, while keeping in mind the laws that are being broken, why is Kaily permitted by the state social worker to stay in a home that is against her placement guidelines, though it has not been granted for her to return to her mother’s care and get proper treatment that the state has failed to provide. The mom has beyond proven herself fit and capable. In which she should not even have to do under Nebraska State Law, since she voluntarily placed Kaily, for HELP. Not for her to be further traumatized and then added on more abuse and neglect.
The overuse of power here has exceeded the level of ridiculousness and should be investigated and resolved immediately!
The following Laws apply when managing Kaily’s care, placement, safety and well-being.
Please review the following state and federal laws carefully in regard to Kaily’s safety and proper case management.

● The dispositional statutes (sections 43-283 to 43-2,101) do not violate the equal protection provisions of either the U.S. Constitution or the Constitution of the State of Nebraska, because they validly classify status offenders, who do not violate the state's criminal law, on the one hand, and juvenile criminal offenders, on the other, who violate the state's criminal law by their own volitional acts. In re Interest of C.G. and G.G.T., 221 Neb. 409, 377 N.W.2d 529 (1985).
● The Equal Protection Clause is from the text of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides "nor shall any State ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws". It mandates that individuals in similar situations be treated equally by the law.
THEREFOR FOSTER PARENTS, SOCIAL WORKERS, CASA WORKERS, FAN WORKERS, JUDGES, DHHS, CPS, CFS, etc. SHOULD BE HELD JUST AS LIABLE IN A COURT OF LAW FOR NEGLECT, ABUSE, ABUSE OF POWER, FORGERY, UNLAWFUL PLACEMENT OF A MINOR, ENDANGERING THE WELFARE OF A CHILD, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA, FAILURE TO UPHOLD THE LAW AS A GOVERNMENT WORKER, FAILURE TO INVESTIGATE COMPLAINTS RECEIVED AND MUCH MORE!
● Nebraska Code 43-257.
● Unlawful detention or placement; penalty.
○ Any person who knowingly holds a juvenile in detention or placement in violation of any of the provisions of section 43-255 or 43-256 shall be guilty of a Class III misdemeanor
