I don't think anyone expects you or anyone else to feel sorry for any of us. I know I don't. The calls that were made about what was going on, and there were calls made, fell of deaf ears, so don't blame the former employees, blame the system. Every decision that I made, I made after much thought and soul searching and each decision was what I thought was best for the clients. Think whatever you will, but had some of us not stayed to try and hold the pieces together as long as we could, a lot more people would have lost a lot of money, but more importantly, their dream for a family. I can tell you, you have NO right to link me or any of the former employees that I worked with to the Webb name. None of us deserve that!!
Couldn't have said that better myself.

Okay, let's not feel sorry for someone who says they knew shady things were going on, however they CHOSE NOT to alert the authorities or try to intervene and warn the prospective parents before they lost their life savings. I am sorry, but if you did nothing while this was happening because you didn't want to lose your job, or for whatever reason, then do not expect any sympathy from me now that the FBI and others are asking questions about what you new, when. You knew things were not right, and you sat back and did nothing, for the money. Your name might as well be Webb.
You have every right to be angry.

I certainly don't blame you there after everything that you all have been through.

I don't look for anybody to feel sorry for me. Not at all.

I do want you to know though...while I worked there, everything we former employees did was NOT shady.

We were their about 90% of the time running the business.

We weren't afraid of losing our job. We were there for you all.

I know it's probably hard to see that right now, but I assure you...the only thing that was shady when I was there was th Webbs poor money management. Did we agree with their point of views...NO WAY! But like I said, we stayed there for the Adoptive Parents and the Birth Mothers.

I wanted to let all of you Adoptive Parents out there that had a child placed in their home that it is wonderful to see you all trying to connect with your Birth Mothers.

THAT IS WONDERFUL!!!

I encourage other Adoptive Parents that were fortunate to have a child place in their home to do the same thing.

Please don't forget about the Birth Mothers.

They are hurting as well and will for the rest of their life. The pictures help comfort them, as well as emails/letters providing updates of the child.

You guys are all AWESOME!!!

As spelled on records relating to her 'All for You' agency, it is Donna Hight.

I'd like to thank those who have already stepped forward and contacted FJR Judgment Recovery with information to further our investigation.

Others may still be eligible for financial compensation in exchange for certain information concerning Ed Webb. Please contact FJR Judgment Recovery for details.

That's not her adopted name, that's her maiden name. Her adopted name is Harris. Is she using her maiden name now? She and both are living in Conway now.

Yes...have a right to be negative toward the Webbs and the situation, but not to be negative towards me and MY FEELINGS!!!
Do you know that people at the agency HAVE been talking to the Feds?????
YOU PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ALL WE DID FOR THAT AGENCY AND THE PEOPLE THAT WENT THROUGH THAT AGENCY!!! So don't talk to me trying to explain everybody's feelings. I WAS THERE AND DID MORE FOR YOU PEOPLE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW...and this is my payback for trying to help.
You guys need to think about the people that worked for the Webbs and the abuse that we took as well.
WE HAD TO DEAL WITH THEM EVERYDAY, ALL DAY. Why you ask? Because we cared about you guys so much.
We cared about you guys so much that we would even go without pay sometimes, but would still work for you all. To be there for you.
And I get this???
Very nice.
If it was so bad to work there and you cared so much then why the hell didnt you let someone know about the so called abuse long before the company shut down, and if it was so bad why did you keep talking people in to becoming clients of this damn place, but no everyone there painted a pretty picture for all to see until the truth came out and now you want us to feel sorry for you because you had to work there. i hope you all get locked in the same cell and have to live togther for the rest of your lives.

Hello I have had 3 children adopted through AAI and I was supposed to receive pics and letters at least once a year and now I have no idea how to go about fixing this. Can anyone help me?

I have read more of the posts within this and I have found that a few people have posted about placing their babies for adoption and I have placed 3 children, a 2 year old boy, a newborn boy, and a newborn girl. The 2 year old boy was the hardest of course and I actually met with the adoptive parents at a McDonalds in Clarksville, AR. The other 2 went to the same couple. I have received pictures for the first 2 years that they were adopted but I have not heard anything since. I had no idea what was going on with the company until I tried to find the website and I stumbled onto this. Please if you have any idea of how I may be able to start receiving pictures again I would be forever grateful. Thank you.

I don't blame you for being pissed at the Webbs...I would be to. But be mad on your own time, don't lash out at other people that had NOTHING to do with what the Webbs did.

I know it's probably hard for some of you to understand what all we (former employees) did and that's okay.

I'm not going to explain myself any further because you are going to form your own NEGATIVE opinion of the situation no matter what we say.

I could tell you everything you THINK should have happened and you would STILL find something to bitch about.

Stop with all the bible verses and telling everyone to forgive, if you didnít feel guilty for something you or someone you know did you wouldnít be wasting our time by posting on here telling us to forgive you and that we donít know what you were going thru, frankly I donít care about you and your worry about your job or the so called abuse, everyone has choices in life and you chose to work there and deal with it, we chose to believe in you and look where that got us.
If you call peopleís lives being destroyed and there lifeís saving being taking from them bitching well then I am going to bitch for a long time and I think I have every right to do it.
Some of you are right when It comes to GOD will deal with them but while they are on this planet I want or justice system to deal with them.

You've got it all wrong.

I never said to forgive me, I said to forgive the Webbs in hope to only shed some positive light on this situation and to help you all move forward. Not at all to forget what they have done, or dismiss justice being served.

I hope justice is served with them...absolutely agree with that.

And you also have it wrong about the agency. The agency was pretty much ran by us former employees (as the Webbs were hardly there) and I guarantee you that we did not do anything wrong. We worked hard to help birth mothers place their children in good homes.

The reason why you all are in this bad situation right now is because of poor money management by the Webbs. They spent more money than they made which lead them to having to close down the business which left you all no child, no answers, and no hope.

I got on here to hopefully pass on some of God's comfort because I hate to see people upset (even though you have every right to be).

I understand where you are coming from, and I think your motives are good. You just need to understand that <hurt> and the rest of us who are permanently scarred by AAI really had no idea what went on daily at the agency. I'm aware that the Webbs were hardly ever in the office, and when they were, they often did not receive phone calls. That is true. However, once the Webbs' true colors emerged, I personally felt betrayed also by my "coordinator" and by the other staff members I had trusted along with the Webbs. Many of us had private conversations with the staff members after seeing the light, only to find them defensive of the Webbs and unwilling to talk with us further. This was a big betrayal for me personally. Please understand that many of us had that experience, and can only come to three rational conclusions: 1) They were okay with the money management problems and how adoptive parents were being misled and wronged, 2) They considered it none of their business, and viewed their job at AAI as just a paycheck, irregardless of the people being hurt, or 3) They believed the excuses and lies the Webbs were feeding them. Whatever the reason for staying and watching more and more couples sign on, it feels wrong from this side. It might be best for you guys to just agree to disagree. It is really hard to see the other side, which ever side you may be looking from.

BTW, I applaud the former employees who began working for AAI with only the best of intentions, found out about the Webbs, then chose to leave and work elsewhere. That was the right thing to do.

First off i want you to know that i am not yelling at or trying to take this out on you, i relize you are just trying to help and i am sorry for what may seem like i am taking it out on you.
i just get so mad that it has been so long and yet no one knows anything yet, and then i call ED'S old cell phone only to have it go to a ladie at his EX WIFES new company, here we all sit waiting for answers and they still get to play the game with new people while we are all told to sit and wait.
so once again i am sorry.
have a happy holidays.....
