• Idaho Homeschooled Teenager with History of Medical Issues Removed from Mother Against His Will Due to Child Abuse Doctor Testimony

    Brandon McCreery was always a small child, and had always been in the care of his mother, who diligently worked with doctors to find solutions to his medical needs. They moved to Idaho in 2017 in search of better health care. After being diagnosed with influenza, lab tests revealed Brandon had Celiac Disease, which was probably a contributing factor to his constant battle to put on weight. However, a psychological evaluation was ordered and his case was referred to a Child Abuse Specialist at St. Luke’s Children's Hospital in Boise. A short time later, Brandon's mother was being charged with child abuse, and Brandon became a victim of Medical Kidnapping, where his own voice in the matter was suppressed. His mother was further charged with educational neglect for homeschooling Brandon, and he was forced to attend high school even though he had already fulfilled all high school requirements and graduated at age 16.

    We adopted a child with failure to thrive. His growth was WAY, WAY UNDER the 1 %ile. The social worker insisted he be hospitalized for evaluation. They couldn't find anything wrong. This was over 40 years ago, which is why things turned out as well as they did. At one point, the hospital said they wanted me to talk to their social worker as part of their team. I smelled a rat. So I contacted the social worker on the case, and asked her to ask the court to let us keep her as the social worker because we were satisfied with her (Thank you, God, for giving me that answer!) She said the court agreed, so I didn't have to talk to the hospital social worker. He was discharged without a diagnosis, and the adoption was finalized a few months later. Two years later, I ran into a fellow who understood the electrolytes in the body, and we put him on a special diet of sprouts, carrot juice, oil, raw goat's milk, and a couple of other things. He started to grow. His sleep requirement dropped from 16 hours a day to 8. His hair became shiny. The plaque fell off his teeth. He is now 6 feet tall and has a son, and he is healthy. I have my own theories about the cause of his problem, but thank God that they didn't medically kidnap him. These things happened then, but not nearly as frequently or easily.
    That is a wonderful story. Thank you for being a foster parent. But let me ask this, the child was taken because of FTT and the doctors couldn't find anything. You learned what the cause was and obviously it wasn't the biological parents fault and obviously the biological parents were not abusing their child or causing the FTT. Why wasn't the child given back to their biological parents? This is where the system fails. That child has a right to their biological parents and biological parents have rights to their own care, custody, and control of their children. You found their was a medical cause and it was not the parents. Happy story, but also a sad one:(
    "Mommy", We ADOPTED the child. We were not foster parents. The mother gave us her child when he was born. It was HER decision. We did not influence her in any way. We strongly suspect the damage was caused by marijuana use during pregnancy. Yes, in that case, the biological mother WOULD be to blame. The child was hospitalized during our probationary period, after we had physical custody for three months.

    Dr. Barton wrote this on her MOMMYGUIDE website: "If one of our children does not like what we are having, we do not prepare them a meal of their own. This allows them to find one thing in what we are eating that they will eat. The advantage for us as parents (and disadvantage for our kids) is that because my husband and I are both physicians we know that if our kids do not like a meal and do not eat much one night that they will not starve to death or become malnourished. We have found now that our children spontaneously order healthier foods when we are out. This is very reassuring that we have set them up for good choices as adults."
    This is a serious concern. Dr. Barton is psychologically abusing her children with "food" (Sustenance) and could cause them eating disorders like "Anorexia" and worse. Children are not in control of their taste buds that they are born with (DNA) and "NORMAL" mother's knows all their children well enough to make meals that everyone likes. I have a concern for her children's welfare. She seriously will let her children go without eating because she's to lazy or something to make meals that everyone likes? I think she is lying and her children could be malnourished and need help.


    Please note that Dr. Barton stated; "and disadvantage for our children"!!! That is an omission that she knows what she is doing to her children is bad and puts them at a "disadvantage". It must be horrible to go to bed hungry and watch your family eat and you can't or you can only eat a little. Most children won't understand that. There is a thing called temporary starvation of a child. Starving a child doesn't have to be a long term abuse it can be temporary or intermittently. Sounds like what she is doing is "intermittently"! This to me, is an omission of child abuse by Dr. Amy Barton. So sad..:(

    I found this on Dr. Psycho Barton's website called Mommy guide. This is what she says she does to her children; 'If one of our children does not like what we are having, we do not prepare them a meal of their own.' - Dr. Amy Barton, MD.


    She let her children starve and forces them to eat food they don't like is abusive and intentional and she should be reported to Child protective services and have them taken away!!!!

    Sounds like Dr. Psycho Barton has Munchausen by Pediatric Patient Syndrome for Profit. Lots of reasons the child could be loosing weight such as PINWORM infections. Not saying that's the reason, but the point is did they do a "Functional Workup" on this child prior which would include PINWORM infections. Doesn't always present with itching, just saying.... Why are they always blaming the mother's????


    Dr. Psycho Barton is a severe risk to this hospitals reputation and her MOMMYGUIDE website is ridiculous. I think she has MOMYGUIDE DISEASE. Get real. I'll be making calls.
