Ayn Gets Surgery
September 4, 2013 permalink
Ayn Van Dyk is getting surgery. Just at the moment she most needs her parents, they are being excluded from her life. The announcement last December that Ayn was going home has turned out to be a cruel hoax.
MOTHER DISALLOWED FROM ATTENDING DAUGHTER'S SURGERY
BULLETIN - that's how want to announce this but it really doesn't come as a surprise. The Ministry of Children and Family Development has notified Amie and Derek that their 12 year old daughter who is presently in foster care, will undergo surgery (unspecificed to us) at Children's Hospital on Tuesday. They have also been told they cannot see her there. And she cannot see them. Don't you think that a child, particularly one who is autistic and in a clinical environment with strangers would benefit emotionally from the comforting presence of people who love her? Well that's the way we untrained, unprofessional, ordinary people think. It's the way a mother thinks. Listen to her sadly vent on her Facebook page. She did that in part because she has a support network who listen and communicate.
And who told you this Amie? "Right before I had to work tonight. From the foster parent. I'd like an explanation. We can't always get what we want , now can we? You are curious? This is my life. If you'd like to know why, so would I.More importantly, this is Ayn's life. And this is bullshit. I need all the strength I can get right now because I'm out of reserves. This is wrong. I don't know if I can go on. Then I think of my beautiful little girl for a second and I know I will go on.
"I love me daughter. I have been waiting for the system. I'm done waiting. The last 2 years of my child's life have been stolen. I'm done bargaining. Where do you draw the line? If it was your son or daughter? When can you say the powers that be are wrong? They subverted a court by pretending to co-operate. It's now over 2 years."
"And suddenly I can't see my child. I guess I need to speak to the social worker for clarification. I'd better get it soon or there will be consequences. And suddenly I can't see my child. I guess I need to speak to the social worker for clarification. I'd better get it soon or there will be consequences. I do know that my 12 year old has surgery at Children's on Tuesday and that I can't see my daughter without further clarification from the 7th social worker to date. I can be at Childrens for surgery. I just can't see my girl right now. It's extremely embarrassing but I realize I have nothing to be embarrassed by. I'm a damn good mother."
My daughter wants her mom. And her dad. Funny they think it will be smooth sailing with my little girl, lmao
