    They kicked her out of the hospital and took her baby away from her over a month ago. She hasn't seen her since. They won't even tell her where her daughter is. Jamie Martin took her baby Hope to the hospital because she and the doctors were concerned about Hope not gaining weight, no matter what they tried. Instead of finding answers, she lost her baby and she is devastated. Now DHS of Oklahoma is trying to terminate Jamie's parental rights to her baby girl. "I have done nothing wrong to my baby. She is my miracle child. I need my daughter back!" Jamie Martin is the typical girl-next-door in America's heartland. She workes as a substitute teacher in her local elementary school. She volunteers and is on the board of a tornado disaster relief organization. Her 8 year old son was thrilled when he found out that he was going to be a big brother. Yet now Jamie has found herself in the middle of every parent's worst nightmare - her baby has been taken away from her.

This is likely a pattern and he has likely damaged other babies, and they need to keep this from getting out and becoming a class action lawsuit. Of COURSE she keeps bleeding from the diaper area. He is the ONLY sexual abuser in the picture. The court has already acknowledged there has been no other. This happened to a friend of mine. She had gone in for abdominal pain and the doctor rammed his fingers up her rectum which caused her trauma (physically and emotionally). The occurrence was around the same time. I can't help but wonder whether it was the same doctor or not.

    The first thing that came in to my mind after reading this article is that baby Hope is no longer alive. I have to agree with Raya. There has to be something terribly wrong for them to hide the child in first place and then proceed quickly with the Termination of Parental Rights. Currently it has become a common practice for Child Protective Services to work hand in hand with Hospitals or doctors in order to cover up malpractice. This is where video recorder comes in handy. If your Sate Laws allow secret recordings even better. If you are in a hospital you are being audio and video recorded, you can count on that. Usually they make parents jump through all kinds of hoops to maximize their profits and then they proceed with TPR. What happened to this baby is pure evil. Thank you for sharing your story with us. People need to know about atrocities committed against children and families.

    This is why I hate Oklahoma. I have lived here my whole life and the kids that actually need help in a situation can't et the help they need but the kids that are in a good home with parents that actually give a damn they get taken away. I can only imagine what they are going through. Kenny is my step brother and my prayers are with them as they go through this trying time. I hope you guys get your baby girl back. I would totally sue OU Children's hospital and everyone involved. This is pathetic.. I love you hugs from me and my 5 babies

    Manual rectal examination of an infant is Malpractice. The introduction of two fingers into a baby's rectum is torture. This is medical abuse in addition to the CPS abuse. This very much sounds like an inherited condition. I am appalled!

    Child Protective Service can make something out of nothing. This is an evil government system designed solely for the purpose of using children to make money. Change will come only when the masses decide to believe what is going on with children and demand change. In the present day, people believe that the government is correct in what it does. Nothing is further from the truth!

    My son was born with Food Protein Induced Entrocolytis Syndrome. He would throw up whatever he ate. The Dr. said his "spitting up" was normal. I finally convinced her to refer him to the allergist specialist. My point to this is these dr's and nurses do not know everything thing and need to stop automatically thinking abuse.

    Is the formula you are talking about called Neocate? I have read good things about it.

    It is possible that during that rectal exam that MD caused a major problem (lawsuit) since it was the hospital that made the call. They may have found this out during all those tests and now have to over their tracks.

    I hate to suggest this, but how does anyone know if Hope is still alive. It sounds like the nurses at Oklahoma Children's hospital may have actually caused a serious enough injury. I pray that is not the case!

    My Prayers go up for Hope and this family. My brother is Jamie's boyfriend and I know for a fact they awaited excitedly for this precious baby to be born and did everything possible to help her get well. No child should have to go through separation anxiety on top of health issues!! That in my opinion was the real abuse and it was by authorities that refused to investigate the real abusers. The nurses on board and DHS.

    This is awful. My thoughts and prayers go with Baby Hop, her Mom, Brother and the rest of the family. How horrendous the actions of this agency the hospital and their lack of trying to make an effort to make investigate the situation.

    http://m.nydailynews.com/news/national/mom-asks-craigslist-shelter-kids-article-1.1874333 http://www.wncn.com/story/26096715/durham-mom-hopes-2-job-offers-help-her-get-kids-back These articles are somewhat a summary of what happened. I did not want to involve other people in my reasons why I was so desperate out of fear for my safety. I also had to take some responsibility to why I became homeless. The father of my five children was stealing from me to support his crack habit. One incident lead to me getting evicted after he stole my rent money. When I went to live with my mother, my brother who molested my son moved in. I asked DSS to put the children in foster care until I get get my own place. They told me it was nothing they could do since he had not been convicted. My church also called when I went to them for help. He eventually moved out and I found out my mother had taken the kids to his house. My entire family is in denial about this long history of incest and sexual abuse. That is when I called my DSS again and the said we are not a babysitting service where you can just drop The kids off. After that I posted the ad on Craigslist. That was in July, I have my own place now, completed all the requirements and they still will not release them. I feel they should return my children because I was not neglectful. I feel DSS is neglectful because they were aware of the situation and refused to let me give them temporary custody. The judge said he wants to see how long I can keep my place because of my history of being homeless. I have never had a history of being unable to maintain a home until their Dad stole my rent money. My public defender refuses to defend just keeps telling me DSS will give them back eventually,and if keep Fighting with them about my sons skin breaking out because he is living in a house with a dog they will give the kids up for adoption. They also took my baby from the hospital at 3 weeks old because I was still living with my mother. They said it was an endangerous environment due to her history with CPS when we were kids and the fact That I told them my brother came and went as he pleased. I told them we could live with friend and they denied that request saying it was not stable housing because they both had HUD housing and It would be violating their lease. I also tested positive for marijuana but the substance abuse counselor testified it is very likely to be a false positive due to medication I was given in the hospital called Protonix. All test have been clear since then. I was admitted at 32 WEEKS because I was leaking amniotic fluid. I had an emergency c-section at 33weeks on 8/8/14. It makes no sense that they took Malachi for the same reason I put the ad on Craigslist and call it neglect. If anything they could have claimed the children are dependent since I had no where else to go. They would not even let me take him to a shelter like they suggested with my older five children. Now my oldest son was put on Medication for Adhd without my knowledge. Now every time I see him he looks sleepy and sad. My baby is seven months and does not know who I am. DSS is just upset that this made national headlines, even the Dr.Drew show interviewed me, and the public is upset that I asked for help before placing the ad. Now they are trying find anyway to prove I cam crazy. I was trying to break the cycle my family had created and the longer I lived with my mother I felt like I was turning into one of them. Brushing things under the and acting as if everything was normal. My son has always displayed the same behavior I had in school. He deserves to live his life to his full Potential. I will not Let his life be destroyed by suffering from the side effects of sexual abuse. The difference between us is he told me. I kept my sexual abuse by my uncle secret for 25 years. I just recently told my entire family before I got evicted and made police reports on him and my brother. The police claimed they could not locate them. When he moved in my moms house and My church made report. I told the investigator to please not come to my mothers house unless they could give us a place to live. That would only put me and my children at risk for retaliation. I told her I would contact her when I got my own place. I moved in March 6 and I am ready to go nation wide with my story. There. Are so many families out there in the same situation and Will continue to be out of fear. I want to show others family history does not mean a life sentence to the same behaviors. It is called breaking the cycle.

    The state at this level is corrupt and in bed with DHS and their human trafficking business partner! It's not about any of the accusations on the mother because that install a hoax to steal the baby daughter! Even the nurse is obviously in on it! They had no right not substantiated reasons without warrants even to take the baby. Jamie needs a private attorney to get justice and get her baby back. An attorney who belongs to the state is also in bed with the corrupt court!

    My name is Lesa Mansfield, Hope is related to me. I am the one who had the son, with the symptoms of throwing up several times a day. Failure to thrive. Loosing weight every time we went to Doctor. We went to doctor and doctors and went to 4 different hospitals too trying to keep finding out what was wrong. Thank God for Hospital in Colorado for solving the problems. My Son was allergic to the protein in all milk in the United States. We had to get formula from the United Kingdom called Neonate and feed him for several months in feeding tube. Now he is Healthy and thriving. To this day he is still allergic to protein in milk, that includes, goat, soy, cow, and several others types. It is inherited Every time we went to Doctor, the doctor would try another baby formula, which everyone has milk protein in it. Please Pray and Help Hope come home.

    Remember, every time CYS terminates parental rights and adopts the child out (white kids adopt out almost automatically), they get $8000 from the feds. Also, I find it suspicious that they don't want to find out if there is a legitimate medical issue. I bet if they get the termination, they'll do the tests so that the kid recovers (after it is too late for the child to ever go home) and the adoption goes through. Private, for profit prisons, I mean foster care agencies, get a large cut for every child they place and the caseworkers and judges get kickbacks. I found out that in my county, the CYS caseworkers, supervisors, judges, guardian ad item (kid's lawyers), and the parent's lawyers all go out DRINKING together EVERY WEEK. Yeah, no conflict of interest there! If they get the termination, these people can lose any child in their custody without cause.
