    The file was making many assumptions because much of the information was nonexistent, speculative, and either the mother didn’t cooperate or just didn’t know herself. Long story short, my sister had given Amanda to several people to look after; family, friends, and once she ran out of people to pawn Amanda to, she gave the child to CAA. Then, she decided to take the child back from CAA, this was around Amanda’s 4th birthday. CAA recognized they made a mistake returning AJ to her mother at that time and were unable to stop my sister then and/or track her down. At that time there were no significant signs of abuse or neglect and once my sister left their site she was untraceable as she has a virtually invisible social finger print, no properties, loans, job, family, bank account... A few years later my sister returned AJ to CAA care at age 6.…

    This was clearly a hipaa violation.

The author stated that she was grateful to Hospice for their tremendous support and counsel, and for giving her sister a peaceful death.

    In Tammy’s case the cancer came back but that was after the fact that she was already diagnosed. As for her sister, she was never diagnosed and hopefully never will be due to the fact that she had the double mastectomy and eliminated the chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Now later on down the road Tammy’s daughter will have to be tested and she will decide then if the surgery is for her.

    Stacy involves ethos in her editorial when she says, “proud to be the mother of three children” had two previous abortions and did not regret them. She feels the first two times she became pregnant she wasn’t ready so she aborted them. While adoption is a choice, a woman that doesn’t want a child will still have to supply to that fetus for the first nine months of its life, either way that ties her down. Also the downside of adoption is that when the child gets older they want to find their biological parents so the parents are still linked to the child, even if they wanted zero…
