Some of you know what Brian and I have been going through these past few months, many of you do not. At this point we have no choice but to reach out to everyone we know for help. We cannot go into all the details but we can tell you this much. On March 1st 2012 we took our infant son, Ethan into the Emergency Room at a local Children's Hospital because he had a fever and was not feeding well. Unfortunately we did not get the help that we went there for. Instead we were accused of abusing our child. We were questioned by doctors,social workers and detectives over the course of 5 days and cooperated fully. On March 5th our son was removed from our custody and placed with my Brother. We naively thought that if we just cooperated they would seek the truth and clear us. This has not been the case, by far! They insist that we caused harm to our child even though we have medical evidence to back up that our son was misdiagnosed to begin with. We are now in a situation where we are absolutely having to go to trial to not only get our son back home to us but save our careers. As many of you know, Brian and I are in the medical field and if we are found guilty of these false accusations we will lose our careers that we have worked so hard for. All we ever wanted was to become parents. We struggled with infertility treatment for 3 years and suffered 2 miscarriages in the process. When we finally had Ethan, it was the happiest day of our lives. We prayed to God for years to grant us the opportunity of being parents. On December 15th 2011, our prayers were answered when Ethan was born healthy. Now these people have taken away our son and our rights as parents. To be accused of hurting another person, let alone our own son is the most crushing accusation we could ever have thrown at us. Especially when we consider ourselves helpers and healers. That has always been our nature. We LOVE our son Ethan and will do whatever it takes to bring him home. We have already spent thousands of dollars on legal and medical fees. With trial coming up we turn to our friends and family for help. We need to raise $50,000 to cover legal and medical costs. It doesn't matter that I am a Nurse and have scoured the medical records for answers and found them. It needs to come from an expert. We need to hire medical experts and they are not cheap. But if we don't we may lose everything important in our lives. Everyday is a struggle for us. Through all of this we still have to work and go to meetings,court hearings,medical appointments etc. We are hanging on by a thread. Everything and anything is appreciated. Please keep our family in your prayers daily.
