FROM THE COMMENT SECTION - DOES ANYONE HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WOMAN'S FAMILY FROM CASS COUNTY?
needs to be done! I was taken away from my parents along with my
brother and sister at the age of 2 1/2. My parents didn't do anything
wrong except not drive and my dad was 70 when I was born. This has
scared me for life. Now they won't even give me any information because
it was all illegal. This took place about 1952 and at that time they had
social workers whom I know took money under the table. He was tight
with the adoptive parents who couldn't have children. He took her by my
house and I was exactly what she wanted..He took us for her but she
never wanted my brother and they treated him terrible. It took 4 years
to adopt us! It devastated my parents. My dad took to drinking and lost
everything! My mother couldn't cope either and about 5 years after we
were removed she went to the state hospital. I lived in a home of
nothing but mental abuse! To this day I hate Pauline and Victor Hartsell
for what they done to us. They destroyed my family and I never knew my
parents. I was never a very happy child and I still grieve for my
parents. Can't get any information on the case or why we were taken
away.Just my name which I already knew. I never grieve when these
caregivers died. How can this happen? I have since found what family I
have left and I know I had very good parents. My granddaughter was taken
away for 5 months and there was no case. They have too much power! This
is so wrong!!! They took something from me that I can never get back!!!
My brother is not with us today because of the way they hated him!!! He
got into drugs and alcohol. She openly admitted she didn't want him!!!
But Cass County wanted us to be adopted together, but yet they separated
our older sister from us and that wasn't right either. She went
somewhere else. I knew her as an acquaintance. We were never allowed to
see her very often and never left to be alone with her. My family told
my 2 cars came that day and 1 got my mother out of the house and the
other car came in and took us right in front of my dad!!! Then they went
to school and got my sister. When my mother came home we were gone!!!!
My parents were beside themselves with grief and never got over it.
There were lies like we wern"t fed and that was all lies.If you have
nothing to hide, then show me the records.!!!!You use excuses like they
aren't public records and that my file is surpressed!!! I know the
social workers name,but feel I can't put it on here. The only thing I
have from my mother is my favorite teddy bear she gave me and Pauline
tried to take credit for that too.I know they make thousands of dollars
for each child and they made money off of me too. I was picked out of my
yard like a puppy. All they ever did was talk bad about my parents. She
never made me her child and she should never have had any ! THAT IS WHY
GOD MADE HER BARREN BECAUSE SHE WASN'T A GOOD MOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!
