Bring Nathan Home
Organized by: sa spears
My grandson Nathan has been in Riley Hospital for children since June 23rd, fourteen days and counting. He had a severe seizure while in the care of his biological mother.
When Nathan was 8 months old, he was placed in my home by CPS. It was rough on us both, but in time, he grew strong and his seizures stabilized. He was attending daycare and learning and making friends. He was happy.
Shortly after his second birthday, Nathan was returned to his mother. Despite my objections and evidence suggesting that she was not ready, CPS closed his case as quickly as possible. Nathan was returned without stipulations or monitoring.
Since that time, he has missed his nuerology appointments, pediatrician visits, and the needed adjustments to his medication for his growing body. He is no longer in daycare or my life.
His mother has refused visitation to all family members of Nathan's father, who passed away last fall. We have been unable to visit or call to check on his welfare. Up until today and an accidental call from the hospital, we were left in the dark.
The severity of Nathan's condition remains a secret because his privacy rights are determined by his mother. I am desparate to know that he is okay, and I am ready to do whatever it takes.
I am not trying to keep Nathan from his mother or her family. I miss him. His older brother, KJ, asks for him regularly. My family offers a large support system ready with open arms. I want to be in his life, but asking nicely hasn't worked, and I need your help. Please help bring Nathan home.
