Ever heard of Ramoth House? According to an alumna it is a jail for new mothers, held under promise of keeping their children upon program completion. Below is her communication, abridged to avoid giving social services any more help in harming her.
Hi, I just got a link to your interview with Manny on open mic about the rally on March 3, 2011. I totally agree with you. They need to answer to somebody. I lost my two children 7 years ago, because my husband broke my 6 month old daughters leg. I admit, I should have left him right away, but I didnt, hence why I didnt get them back. 5 years goes by, I get pregnant by another man, and my ex-husband calls C.A.S. on me telling them I am pregnant and he is concerned. He is now living with my daughters at this time. Childrens Aid then calls me and tells me that if I want to keep my baby I have to go to a home in Mount Forest called Ramoth House. A house that works with C.A.S. to help young mothers become better parents. I was told that I would only have to stay 3 - 4 months.
After 4 months go by, I am told I have to stay for the full one year program. So I stay, doing all the classes they tell me to, taking care of my son alone. And at this home the babies, (can be 5 of them at one time) are not allowed to play together. So my son becomes anti-social and does not like other kids. After the year is up I get to go home, I graduate the program, but I not allowed to go home with my son. Very rarely does anybody make it the full year in this home, I did. Only because I thought I could keep my baby. Now I go from having him 24/7 to only seeing him for 2 hours a week.

I honestly hope that the rallies make a difference, I do not think it is fair to parents out there like me, good parents who love their children more then life itself, can not raise their precious little bundles of joy, yet the parents that I see walk around Owen Sound, and many other towns and treat their children like garbage and worse then dirt can keep those innocent little people.
I have attached a picture of my babies.
