• South Carolina Family has Children Medically Kidnapped Based on Wrong Diagnosis from Child Abuse Specialist

    When Tai Simmons-Roper and her husband Shawn took their 4 week old baby Braxton to Greenville Memorial Hospital in South Carolina for excessive spitting up, the last thing they expected was that doctors would find multiple unexplained fractures, and that they would be thrown into jail and have their beloved new baby taken away from them by Child Protective Services. They were facing the possibility of spending the next 35 years in prison. They had no way of knowing that their son had serious metabolic bone disease, nor did the Child Abuse specialist who reported them test Braxton to rule out such conditions before reporting them for child abuse. After later medical reports were sent to the DA confirming that Braxton actually has infantile rickets and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, all criminal charges were dropped. However, DSS (Department of Social Services) is still refusing to give custody back to his parents. Braxton's older brother was also taken away, and DSS will not let him go home either.

    I have a medically fragile special needs child who has always been seen by GHS doctors and specialists and always goes to GHS in emergency or when sick. After these recent cases of medical kidnap, I am terrified of taking her there for anything. All of her records are there, they take good care of her and I feel are better equipped to care for her, but I am scared to take her there anymore.

    Would it do any good to call Greenville Memorial and urge them to fire Fran Crosswell? I kind of suspect it wouldn't. Plus I have minor children at home and don't want a retaliatory CPS investigation at my own doorstep.

    I don't think there is no laws for dss, for they sent my husbands and our sons medical information to my ex-husband which has nothing to do with neither of them in fact the children we do have together I have full custody and he is not suppose to be even getting there stuff without my permission. I have contacted 2 lawyers that I know personally and they told me when it comes to dss, you pretty much have no rights, you have no privacy, and ever since they have been in our life I have developed aniexty issues, and other health concerns, but I am scared to go to the doctor. There is stuff going on with my children (adhd) and need to go to counsler, but I am to scared to take them or myself for they would get our records.

They destroyed a family because the doctor was wrong and didn't want to ruin her reputation by saying that she made a mistake. DSS needs to give those children back the their mother. DSS is also known for destroying families. You do everything your suppose to, and yet they continue to put you through hell. I hope you get your kids back and that this nightmare ends. There is also financial incentives for taking the kids away on false accusations. This "dr." "child abuse specialist" is nothing more than an agent with CPS, DSS, DCF, whatever alphabet agency who profits from taking kids from loving parents and destroys the family in the process. For truly evil people this is a win-win situation.

    I'm so sorry. I know what yall are going thru. I passed all my drug screens urine and hair. Passed eval for substance abuse, still taking parenting classes, and having to take 26 wk class for anger management because we got into a FAMILY ARGUMENT in front of our daughter and got investigated for negligence. Neither one of us would ever lay hands on our daughter, its since August and we both still have to have supervised visitation.

    One more item of note: If you reread all three of the MedicalKidnap articles above, they all have one thing in common: Greenville Memorial Hospital in Greenville, SC. Hmmm....

They weren't suspected of being a danger to each other. Something smells fishy there. We thought the same thing but it was ordered by a judge in NC. I sat and heard it with my own ears. They were not allowed to see or speak to one another. The entire to e the detective wanted Tai to turn on her husband, he thought Shawn did it not Tai. Tai wouldn't say he did it because she never saw him harm the baby. I lived this nightmare with my daughter.
