I am from Alabama, and I grew up hearing and being inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. I have heard it my whole life. Well, I have a dream, too. It came to me as I was praying for God’s heart for families, and it is a prayer that literally comes straight from the throne room of God. Continue reading I Have a Dream, Too
When a person commits heinous crimes, it should come as no surprise when a criminal court sentences them and they lose many of their rights. However, when a person is injured in an accident, develops an impairment, or simply grows older, they too can lose many, even most, of their basic human rights under a probate court. Continue reading Forbidden: Basic Human Rights Denied Under Guardianship
The admission sounded like something out of “Logan’s Run” or other dystopian sci-fi movie, not an explanation one would expect to hear from legal associates. Nancy Scott and others who joined her in a peaceful prayer vigil for her mother’s life on Tuesday, August 20, were stunned when representatives from the court-appointed guardian’s office explained that the reason that retired Alabama schoolteacher Marian Leonard was on hospice was because she was old.

A mother’s love can make all the difference in the life of a child. Unfortunately, there are times that doctors, including those known as Child Abuse Pediatricians, have the power to enlist law enforcement and Child Protective Services in order to take children away from the love and care of their mothers and fathers, even when the parents are innocent.
Brenner Children’s Hospital, Child Protective Services, and law enforcement say that Joy Zeller has harmed her son by seeking medical opinions outside of the Brenner system and by disagreeing with some of the Brenner doctors. They stepped in and took Nathan away from his mother, accusing her of criminal behavior, in the name of Nathan’s “best interest,” at considerable expense to taxpayers.
