• Texas Mom Tells her Story of How a Child Abuse Pediatrician Used CPS to Medically Kidnap her Baby

    In the middle of the night on May 23rd, 2016, my husband, Tim was caring for our 4-month-old infant son, Tristan, our third of three boys, while I was trying to get some rest. Tim awoke to find our son completely unresponsive. He immediately woke me up and told me to go to the emergency room as fast as possible. I rushed him to the hospital without a moment’s hesitation; no wallet, no phone, no shoes. I will never forget the pure fear of those moments holding my unresponsive baby in my arms praying to God not to take my baby. When I got to the hospital, the ER doctor told us Tristan had a small subdural hematoma and at the time we had no idea what that was. After a day of testing, our prayers were finally answered when Dr. Sandberg, Tristan’s Neurosurgeon, came in with his diagnosis of a tiny subdural hematoma caused by birth injury. He let us know it would resolve itself in the next couple of days, that he was canceling the scheduled MRI, and that we could go home, as he said there was no reason to intubate and bathe our baby in that much radiation. This was the moment that our family had been praying for, and for the first time we felt relieved to know that Tristan was going to be ok and we would all be going home soon. But unbeknownst to us, our nightmare was just beginning.  While we were taking in the comfort in Dr. Sandberg’s diagnosis, the child abuse pediatrician (or CAP) was formulating her own diagnosis for Tristan’s medical emergency… Abusive Head Tramua.  She used CPS to medically kidnap our baby.

    To ask the question, why can't you sue the hospital where this occurred? Why can't you sue the Child Abuse Pediatrician? It seems to me, that if they are inserting themselves between the parent(s) and the child, when they are wrong the parents should be able to sue for the negligence and the resulting damages (court costs, legal fees, lost wages, emotional distress, etc.).

    Thank you Medical Kidnap, for continuing to "beat the drum" about these awful events - medical kidnaps. They occur far too often and are tearing innocent families apart with LONG lasting effects. As I was reading this particular story I was taken back to our own story, our daughter Lindsey's story. She had a discussion with a doctor about treatment for her son and the next thing we knew, he was taken from her - she was also breast-feeding her son - and it tore our family apart.


    Thank you for continuing to work diligently on these cases and exposing the atrocities. Thank You for reaching out to those of us who have experienced a medical kidnap - a most horrific event. I pray for strength for the Timmerman family.

    This is unbelievable and unacceptable! I will be sending this article and an email to President Trump! These poor families! These doctors need to be held accountable and put in jail. And laws need to be changed!
