Back in late 2003 we were proud parents of 3 beautiful children.
Amy almost 4, kane almost 2 and Kieran just 3 months old.
Kane became unwell and stopped walking. Docs could find no reason for it.
Days went by and still refusing to even stand up. Went to hospital, had tests, still no reason why.
Next morning he woke screaming in pain and his left leg red, hot and swollen.
Back to hospital and more tests and x rays.
They said they found fractures on his body. Accused of child abuse.
Arrested and interviewed for GBH.
Children put in Foster care.
Police dropped charges, but children's services didn't.
All 3 children put up for adoption.
Told nothing we could do. No grounds to appeal.
Told to move on and forget our babies.
Found out I was pregnant in 2005. Hid it for 6 months before going to midwife as I knew they would take baby as soon as born.
Children's services on doorstep again planning their attendance at the birth.
We panicked and I fled to Ireland to give birth.
I gave birth to Brandon with 2 guardai at the bottom of the bed. Under house arrest for 2 weeks in hospital.
Came back to UK for 3 month stay in assessment unit to prove our parenting.
Passed all tests perfectly then stay got extended by another 2 months for psychiatric and psychological assessments which we also passed.
Went to Royal courts of justice to keep our son brandon.
We won the battle for Brandon, and have since had another daughter Cara born in 2009 (with no social involvement) but were told the adoptions on our older 3 were not reversible. Too much time had passed.
An injunction was placed on our entire family preventing us from naming our stolen children until midnight on 07/01/2021
Our daughter Amy is now 21 years old and we are legally allowed to find her.
The adoption unit haven't been helpful. We've joined as many adoption sites as we can find over the years, and now that we can we have shared photos of our children on social media far and wide.
We will never stop in our search for our babies as long as we are living During the trial to keep Brandon we proved kane had scurvy (vitamin c deficiency)
Due to his aversion to food and lactose intolerance. American professor found it on x rays and previous docs agreed that's what it was. That's why we were able to keep Brandon as we proved we'd done nothing wrong.
We are trying to raise the fee for a private investigator to track down Amy Webster to reunite this family. All that you can spare will be so gratefully received and will go towards some kind of good coming from this.
Thank you all!!!
