Stay strong! I have a 14 year old son and he is in a similar situation in Florida.
Children are precious and should have a voice in every corner of the world.
Shame on all adults who use children in order to control or hurt their spouses while ignoring how much damage they are doing to our future adults!
Loving parents listen to their children and allow them to grow confident and strong!
Good luck to you Brianna.

Florida is the worse state! They do not take child abuse seriously. They punish the protective "good parent". Go to www.factscourtwatch.org. horrifying stories
I love you and your mother so much sweetie. Just do not ever give up hope. Never give up on prayer. I know GOD will always protect you.
I signed the petition , and I wish I could again
Do you know if she has a Guardian ad Litem? She should in a situation like this to give her a voice.
Bryanna- Please ask your lawyer or someone in the know. I know that you can be appointed a Guardian ad Litem who will go into court and represent your voice.
In reality The Gardian Ad Litems are a voice for the "judges" not the children. The "protective parent" will get an "incredibly over-flated" bill from the GAL that will cause them to go bankrupt and or then possibly arrested for not being able to pay it. It's all about bias and $$$ in Florida!
In Penna., GAL's are appointed by the Court to represent Children and the County pays the tab. I don't understand WHY these Parents are being charges for a GAL. I guess every State is different, but I wouldn't pay their fees either because the GAL's here don't really give a Sh*t, and usualy only support one side, not what's best for the kids ! They do what the Judge tells them to do, and custody/visitation decisions are made recklessly and irresponsibly !!
Be very careful with GAL's, especially in Florida. They often side with whoever has the best financial means to pay and not what is in the best interest of the child. I know a GAL who has a court documented history of violence yet is GAL to protect children.
You are my kind, talented, beautiful and brave "GREAT" niece. I love you so much. No judge knowing all the FACTS would give custody to anyone other than your mother. Stay strong. Know that your uncle, cousins and I are always here for you.
Thank you Susie
Bryanna Lynn Tell the judge EVERYTHING!!!!! Since you are old enough, the judge may ask you who you want to live with. So there may be an out. Tell the judge everything this man has done to you and your mother.
There is not an age here that the judge will listen to the child. It is up to the judge and this one doesn't care to speak to me. I would love to tell th judge everything. I am not afraid to testify against him but they have to let me and this judge won't. If I thought there was a chance for me to talk sense to the judge, well, I wouldn't have needed this petition. Thank you for commenting though, because I know in most states the kids can decide or at least get input but Florida isn't...

This is why a good parent relocates from Florida without permission when there is a history of abuse. The courts are KNOW for protecting abusers and not the innocent children. Very sad and we need to stand up for these children . Go to www.factscourtwatch.org and Lawless America.
You are absolutely right! They do not want to hear from the children and any form of abuse is not taken seriously. abusers have much more rights. See www.factscourtwatch.org
Dear Hevanly Father Will not let this happen to you we are steeping in, thsi is an outrage, We will stop this I promise you, We are on it!
Thank you for helping me!! Please so something, ANYTHING you can!!
Please friend me sweetie. I will try to help you.
I have and I believe she has too. I will ask her to be sure!!!
Can humans even be sold in America?
See reply to Alec Retros and research. If you think just because this is America, there isn't human trafficking, you are wrong.
O___o Sorry bro, didn't mean to get your knickers in a twist.
She isn't like literally being sold, it's like a fine or a lawsuit type thing :3
Ooooh XD Well I made my comment before I actually read the article :P Thanks for explaining Sara ;D
You don't need a petition, YOU NEED HELP. I haven't seen any posts about you in the facebook group; "Govabuse Florida". I am the founder of Govabuse (largest children & family rights organization in the nation and have advocates nationwide. Ask me to be a friend on my personal Facebook: Nancy Rolfe website: www.govabuse.com.
Thank you both. I just didn't know what else to do. Ms. Rolfe, I will tell my mom too. Thank you again!!
My mom said she contacted you.
This is one of many reasons that adoption is unethical. That man is not your father and should never have rights to you.
Regardless of one's feelings on adoption, this case, this sort of custody dispute, has very little do with adoption -- or, rather, it is not an adoption specific issue and it is not the adoption that is the issue here. Biological fathers can act the same way, the courts can act the same way [in those situations] and the dynamics play out the same. Blood does not make a parent, actions do, and the abusive biological father is no more a father than the abusive adoptive father.
Sorry, I disagree that DNA makes a parent, a belief that stems from both growing up in a dysfunctional family and being close with many others who have endured similar -- or even worse. While I have contact with my father and do love him, I do not see him as being a parent. I have friend who has no contact with her "father", and he has had no visitation rights, because he was so horribly abusive. She has no love or affection for him; she sees him as a sperm donor, nothing more and perhaps...
Sorry, I disagree that DNA makes a parent, a belief that stems from both growing up in a dysfunctional family and being close with many others who have endured similar -- or even worse. While I have contact with my father and do love him, I do not see him as being a parent. I have friend who has no contact with her "father", and he has had no visitation rights, because he was so horribly abusive. She has no love or affection for him; she sees him as a sperm donor, nothing more and perhaps less. Another friend, aged 17, is forced to see his "father", but he does not seem him as a parental figure and feels no love or attachment to him, due to abusive and manipulative behaviors. On the other hand, I have another friend who was adopted by her mother's husband -- not her biological father -- and has always seen him as her father (even though she was never lied to; she always knew), as her own father has chosen to not involve himself in her life; she feels nothing for her biological father, he is largely neutral figure to her. I feel the same way about all family, truly, including one's extended family. Blood means nothing in determining your family; actions and relationships do.
The reason this man should not have been allowed in her life, ever, was because he was violent. Someone who is violent and abusive, no matter the content of their relationship, should not have custody of or rights over children. This applies to biological parents, first parents (in adoptive situations), adoptive parents, foster parents and prospective adoptive parents. It applies to anyone who would like to be involved in a child's life.
To be clear, I see adoption as being something that should either a) be chosen (ie, an older child can choose to be adopted) or b) used in a last resort scenario. I do believe that private, domestic adoption tends to be coercive and deceitful; but I also believe that it does not have to be. There are ethical, open adoptions, in which the first mother was made aware of all other options, not pressured into anything and would have been provided aid and resources if she had chosen to maintain custody of her child. In adoptions from foster care, the children have been removed due to abuse and/or neglect; adoption is the last resort and, for better or worse, we know that foster care alums who are adopted do better than those who age out.
Be brave and strong! Contact Lawless America and Bill Windsor!
I have on several occasions and so has my mom. He will be in our area in November and we will go see him then. Hopefully, it won't be too late.
As this moment i have my 14 year old son with me, there is hope!
This is wrong to allow this man who has terrorized this girl and her mother to be able to manipulate the court so he can also terrorize her and her mom in court too. Hasn't he hurt them enoough? If there is EVIDENCE as in phone records, calls to police, etc... The court should have access to this and interview the girl themselves, and give the relief they seek. If the courts really are "acting in the best interest for the welfare of the child", this would be a good place to put their money where their mouths are.
Thank you for your support andd yes there are is evidence in phone records, repeated 911 calls, police records, FBI reports. If the courts were acting in MY best interest, I would not have had to start this petition. Thank you again!!
Good for you, girl. You obviously are quite smart, and you're not taking this lying down. Keep fighting the good fight. Hopefully some reforms will come out of this. Have you ever heard of Jay Seculow of the ACLJ? He is a Christian Lawyer who fights for religious liberties, and maybe he would help you and your mom. Even if he can set you up with someone who can help, it might be worth a shot.
Keep using your voice sweetie <3.
we are doing everything we can short of re kidnapping you and killing those responsible!
Please everyone...Go to www.factscourtwatch.org. This group is trying to do something about these judges that are giving abusers custody over a good parent. Send complaints to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. They can only ignore complaints for so long
