Katie Left All Alone in Hospital Undergoing Chemotherapy

Katie has been left all alone in M.D. Anderson undergoing this fourth round of chemotherapy. CPS has not allowed the parents to be present in the hospital during this treatment. I don't have the right words and enough words to express how awful I feel about that. It is unbelievably cruel and just sickening that Katie would have to suffer through that ordeal all alone with no parent beside her. That is emotional abuse and child abuse on the part of CPS. How is Katie supposed to keep up the hope and will to survive without the love and support of her parents. Stella Klein CPS worker who signs all Katie's consent forms is supposed to attend each doctor and hospital admission. She wasn't there Friday because I saw her on TV in court in Corpus Chrisit. I bet she is not there with my Katie this Sunday morning either. Our contact information in the hospital records has been removed by Stella so if something goes wrong they do not even know who the parents are to contact. We can't even talk to her by phone during this time.

Judge Jack Hunter said in the hearing on Friday that he put God first, then family, and then his support group in fighting cancer at M.D. Anderson. The Judge agreed she needs her family there, but it didn't happen Friday. If he believes in God he would know that children belong with their parents and will restore Katie to us. We have done nothing wrong and are just God fearing loving parents that want our daughter back before she dies in their care alone and in isolation. Thank you Judge Hunter for letting us go to Kansas for evaluation.

A judge is supposed to judge between right and wrong and truth vs lies. CPS has fed you with a bunch of lies. We stand for truth and right. Let justice prevail.
