CPS has stolen 4 months of Katie's precious life from her parents. In our previous story Missy only lived 19 months from the diagnosis of her disease. She could have lived that long without any treatments. This is the 9th month from Katie's diagnosis. We don't know how long Katie has. That is in God's hand. But every day with a cancer patient is precious time. And we have lost much precious time with our daughter Katie and the boys even more time.

CPS has put Katie through severe emotional and mental trauma. That is child abuse! They separated her from her parents and her brothers and placed her in homes with total strangers while she is battling cancer. They took away the love and hope she would have received from her family.

CPS is using gestapo tactics to get Katie to submit to this High-Dose chemo. Katie has said of her own free will that she does not want this High-Dose chemo. M.D. Anderson hassused there own phycologist to talk to Katie. CPS brought in there own phycologist to talk to Katie. CPS has lied to her repeatedly. They are telling her she will die if she doesn't do this chemo. They are brainwashing her. They have tried to shut off all communication with her parents. Now they have gone so far as to bring in Keith and Debbie Moore, the pastor from Agua Dulce Baptist Church, to convince her and bribe her into submitting to this treatment. Shame on you two. You know nothing of Katie's condition and you believe CPS lies. You of all people should understand that Katie is best cared for by her parents during this time and that they should be making these medical decisions. CPS has also contacted my X and Katie's half-sister and convinced them that Katie will die without this treatment and have called them to come visit and to convince Katie. They have also used her best friend at her school to convince her. None of these people are qualifed to help Katie make medical decisions in her life nor do they know the medical information we know or that Katie knows. Yet, we are told we cannot talk to Katie about her medical treatments. Well, if Katie dies from this treatment you will know you had your part in her death. I hope you can answer to God for that. Leave Katie alone.

I want to know who will take the responsibility for Katie's future health problems or death caused by these treatments? Before this treatment is done I want someone to sign a paper saying they are responsible for all future medical bills or the death of Katie caused by these treatments received in state care. Will M.D. Anderson be responsible? Doctors are supposed to make recommendations not force treatments on patients or a child. Will CPS be responsible? How about you, Stella Klein? You readily sign every consent form the doctors ask you to. How about you Mr. Thomas Stuckey, assistant county attorney, who continues to insist Katie stays in state care even though she has refused treatment and we are at an impass? Will Judge Lewis? Will the state? In our care, we the parents, take that responsibility. This is not a simple life saving procedure. These treatments cause injury to the body and even new cancers and a multitude of future health problems. Who will stand up and take that responsibility for the state? If you won't take that responsibility then give Katie back and get out of our lives.
