• Judge Who Ordered Baby Steffen to be Removed from Life Support Orders Sister be Placed for Adoption

    The Rivenburg family was back in court on Monday morning, June 19. This time, it was to fight for Annalise, the big sister of Baby Steffen, the baby who was taken off of life support on June 8. The family, including aunts, uncles, and cousins, were hopeful that the court would send little Annalise back home to be with her family, but that did not happen. Instead, they learned that the Department of Children's Services (DCS) now plans to terminate her parents' parental rights and place her for adoption, presumably with the foster family with whom she and Baby Steffen were placed 4 months ago, just before the baby got sick. They are devastated. Patricia's heart-wrenching sobs could be heard in the background as a family member told the news to Health Impact News. The thought of losing Annalise seems an unbearably cruel blow to the family that is still reeling from what they call Baby Steffen's "potentially preventable" death.

    This Judge who gave him the authority to play GOD... with people's lives... No human at any time has the capability to know what is "BEST" for him or herself let alone for someone else... CPS has overstepped their authority beyond belief... WHO do they think they are... probably most of them are Narcissistic personalities with "control" issues... borderline pathological... people in these positions need to be screened for these traits... its no different then pedophiles who seek jobs as cross guards at schools, or as teachers... mentally disturbed people will seek what feeds their mental conditions.. no different than addicts with a drug... or smokers or alcoholics ... why would we think or assume that all people in positions as judges, doctors, nurses, teachers etc. are mentally "FIT" for those positions..
    then we are shocked when news come out that this nurse killed babies in the nursery... or teachers having affairs with their students.. or doctors pushing drugs and vaccines they wouldn't push on their "own"... now judges who want to play GOD... how dare they... Our systems are not perfect but what makes them corrupt are people who are truly mentally disturbed passing as "normal"... what should be done is investigations should be set up to look into these people passing themselves as "normal"... lets look into their backgrounds and families... there is one Judge on You tube caught beating his daughter.. and he is a family court Judge???... when people rule harshly they need to be investigated.

    This was my first thought too Anna - Look into the backgrounds of these judges and DHS entities etc, all who are "playing GOD." Particularly the judges, as it is they who are being given the 'power" of final judgement. When I started looking into the backgrounds of those involved in my daughter's medical kidnapping I found glaring evidence of serious criminal activity as well as what would surely be "diagnosed" as a serious mental disorder/deficiency.. And then the following cover-ups by superiors and hospital admin to save face/reputation, and to head off certain huge law suits is proof beyond a doubt that it is profit that trumps all humanity and decency and protecting our most vulnerable of all, a sick child. But these judges - they are being given ultimate power, unabated, to actually grant a death sentence of an innocent and helpless child. I wonder if it would make any difference in them if they were required to be the one to pull the plug, or at least to witness what they have ruled to be done.

    "The family has also learned that DCS does not consider that Baby Steffen is in their custody any longer, and is not planning to pay for his burial."

    After my desperate pleas begging them not to take my daughter's life - not to take her off life support after they were done with her, she was no longer of any value to them and much to be exposed of what they did to her had there been any "real" investigation, I too was left with a dead child and everything that has to be done and decided - and paid for. Since she was taken 5 states away from home I had to find a way to get her back home to bury. Decisions that had to be made on the spot, immediately. Beside the added emotional devastation, these things are very expensive, especially when you have just been financially devastated from fighting the "system." I had to either pay several hundred dollars to have her transported and another few hundred for the "transfer box", which I did not have and no way to get, and the preparation costs (embalming etc) - or have her cremated for abut half that price and a funeral home from back home would pay that up front to the crematory five states away and bring her ashes with me, paying that bill in installments later. Then you have all the funeral planning (more funeral home costs) to do and bills to pay for all that. A casket if not cremated or holder for cremations if cremated - both are unbelievably expensive. And if your pastor has a fee, although it would surely be unheard of for a pastor to not wave such a fee in this circumstance, it is another hurdle to deal with. What kind of service do you want, any singers and music, the memorandum write up and what pictures to use, who to acknowledge, what to display, a lunch afterward, and on and on. These are all more costs - big expenses. Burial costs are on top of all this. First of course you have to find a cemetery and then choose the plot you want and can "afford." That fee is of course an up front fee as well. Then you have to pay the cemetery crew for the actual burial - preparing the ground, if you need a canopy etc, and then the burying of your loved one (closing the grave). And you're not done yet. You have to then decide, at some point maybe into the future, what headstone to place and what to have on such headstone. Headstones are very very expensive. This is additionally traumatizing if you are not able to afford any way to mark your child's resting place with a headstone. And one last thing, a burial plot is considered an "asset." So if after all this you are in need of some type of assistance until you can get your feet back on the ground, this burial plot will be counted against you as an asset.

    This Judge who gave him the right to PLAY God?... this is happening everywhere with these two bit judges in family court... CPS as well has stepped way beyond their lines of authority... family court system and CPS needs to be restructured, eliminated, whatever but the way it is now is beyond reproach.. The problems they are causing, the violations of individual rights, parental rights this needs to STOP...
