Hello and welcome to my blog.
This blog is about the adoption of my daughter known to all of us as "baby Free". Baby Free was removed from me at 2 days' old in September 2007. I was that distraught at the thought of her removal that I done a runner from CALDERDALE ROYAL HOSPITAL the day after she was born. At the time of me fleeing the hospital there was NO ORDER WHATSOEVER on baby Free.
The following morning after baby Free was born a paediatrician came to look at her. Sadly baby Free's eyes had cataracts on her eyes which meant she was born visually impaired. I was very upset. The paediatrician also said that baby Free had what sounded like a slight heart murmour but she also thought that baby Frees heartbeat was something to do with her birth that it was some sort of irregular rhythm that babies can have when they make the transfer from womb to world. The paediatrician wanted another paediatrician to check baby Free in the afternoon.
Three hours later the second paediatrician came to check on baby Free he said her heart was fine but her eyes weren't and that she would have to be operated on at approximately 6 weeks' old. I knew what was going to happen. The operation was going to make her eyes more belly up than what they were as i had experienced this with my son.
Approximately 2 hours after the paediatrician had gone an anonymous person telephoned my husband to say that a SOCIAL WORKER would be stationed OUTSIDE my room door on the Friday morning while everyone was in court. I panicked and freaked out. After some too-ing and frowing between anonymous people it was arranged for me to flee the hospital. At roughly 4pm my husband and I took baby Free and went to an anonymous address.
Things went from bad to seriously belly up as a national manhunt was launched to look for us CALDERDALE COUNCIL had arranged for an IBIS code to be used by the hospital to call the police with. This is where the midwife calls the police and gives them a certain code for the case to be declared a national emergency basically. It was ridiculous.
To make matters worse the police were told by CALDERDALE ROYAL HOSPITAL that baby Free would be dead within 4 hours if she was not returned. This was LIE. Baby Free's heart was perfectly healthy as it had been checked by the paediatrician before we left and if baby Free was dying then WHY WASN'T SHE ON A HEART MONITOR? The SS really do think we are stupid don't they.
I went from the hospital to an anonymous address to meet up with another anonymous person who took me right away from Yorkshire. I was arrested and 6am and taken to a hospital with baby free t be examined. After I had been examined baby Free was kidnapped and i was carted off to the police station to await interview.
I was in the police station bleeding heavily with breast milk leaking down my clothes. I know this is very graphic but I want the truth to come out about how the UK social services and the police treat mothers. It upsets me more because at a core meeting prior to baby Free's birth (which was recorded and taken to the press) I was told i was NO IMMEDIATE RISK to my daughter. The whole situation was dreadful.
