Damon’s story is part of the Lost in the System series about family court abuses. http://www.myfoxla.com/category/248760/lost-in-the-system. It will also be posted on Safe Kids http://www.safekidsinternational.org/ after it’s up on Fox’ website. It is considered their #1 story leading off sweeps month. Be sure to comment after it is up, so they keep doing more.

Actress Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girls will be the keynote speaker at the Tenth Annual Battered Mothers Conference! It is being held (as you know by now) in Washington DC on Mothers’ Day weekend May 10-11, 2013 in collaboration with Mothers of Lost Children march at the White House on Sunday May 12 and Lobbying Day on Monday May 13. www.batteredmotherscustodyconference.org 

Come to the conference, demonstration, lobby day to let others about Arlington County  DHS and court system, and how they mistreat their kids and parents.  

Kelly and BMCC’s Mo Hannah appeared on the Katie Couric show on April 19. http://www.katiecouric.com/on-the-show/2013/04/19/kelly-rutherford  http://www.katiecouric.com/videos/kelly-rutherford-custody/
 
A petition has been started to help Kelly bring her kids home. http://www.change.org/kellyskids  It would mean the world to Kelly if you would lend your voice, via Twitter and Facebook to support her. Please share this petition with friends and email contacts as well. There is strength in numbers. She has done so much to get our issue onto the national media and this would be a wonderful way to say thank you.

If you are lobbying at Congress with us on Monday, May 13 and want your case included in the packets, please email a one page summary including your name, the case number, your county and state to cppa001@aol.com.
