Katie's Letter Appealing To Governor Rick Perry
Dear Governor Rick Perry:
Please help me. I have Hodgkin’s Disease. I want to go home. I want to be with my mom and dad and my 3 brothers. I trust my parents to make my medical decisions and to care for me.
CPS kidnapped me and won’t let me go home. They are keeping me in Houston 250 miles away from my family. I want to go to school in Banquete, Texas. CPS has had me locked up for 2 months now.
I want to see my grandparents in Wisconsin before school starts. I didn’t get a summer with my family for fun. CPS wants to keep me here for another 6 months. The 8th amendment of the Constitution is supposed to protect from cruel and unusual punishment.
My court appointed attorney won’t help me. Nobody will listen to me because I am 13 years old. Governor Perry you are my last hope! Please return me to my parents. I need the positive attitude, hope, support, and love of my family around me to get through this.
I beg you, please, please help me,
As Written and Signed by:
