Just before Christmas when I was 7 years old, I was torn from my loving mother’s arms and handed over kicking and screaming to the father who was abusing my brother and me. My Dad had fractured my brother's skull by repeatedly slamming him into a wall. He had testified in court that he had broken my Mother's nose three times and dislocated her shoulder while my brother and I watched in horror. To make it even worse, we were denied all contact with our mother- no visits, no calls, not even letters. We loved our Mom so much and suddenly she was just gone. A family court judge had ordered a change in custody for me and my brother Zachary, based largely on the junk science of Parental Alienation Syndrome. The judge never spoke with me or my brother, yet his decision ruined our lives. This judge and the therapists he forced us to see even went so far as to tell us that we were not allowed to even talk about the abuse we continued to suffer at the hands of our father. If we did, or if we tried to show anyone our bruises, then they threatened that we would no longer be allowed to see our mother at all.

Please help by getting your friends to sign this petition so we can get Congress to hold oversight hearings so other children don't need to go through what I went through.
