In the same boat. The house Donna Gail is working out of is, like everything else, not in her name. It is listed under two other individuals who run a business out of this residence. There is a van at this residence, with AR tags, that shows being registered to her. My wife spoke to her and yes it sounds like the same set-up that AAI has been running. Allegedly, Ed and Donna Gail are divorced, Though that could be a scam just as well. <quoted text>
I am Marcia Barnes of Mitchell, Blackstock, Barnes, Wagoner, & Ivers, PLLC, 1010 West Third, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201, mbarnes@mitchellblackstock.com . I represent Donna Gail Webb in her divorce lawsuit against Ed Webb and in three lawsuits which were filed in 2008 against Adoption Advantage, Inc., Ed Webb and Donna Webb. All of the cases have been filed in the Pulaski County, Arkansas, Circuit Court which has its own website. Ms. Webb was dismissed from the first lawsuit filed against her. In the other 2 cases, a default judgment was filed against Adoption Advantage, Inc., and Ed Webb, but not against Ms. Webb. Any posts to the contrary are false and libelous. I filed a divorce lawsuit for Ms. Webb against Ed Webb in May 2008. This was originally filed as a separate maintenance lawsuit in May 2007. Two hearings have been held and a final divorce hearing is scheduled in June 2009. Any posts that the divorce proceeding is not an actual lawsuit are false. Donna Webb was terminated from her employment at Adoption Advantage, Inc., in early May 2008. She is not affiliated with that organization in any way. She is not a named party in the licensing hearing scheduled at the Arkansas Department of Human Services for March 24, 2009, because the agency is owned by Ed Webb- a fact easily determined by checking the Arkansas Secretary of State's corporate records. The agency for which she now works is not affiliated with Ed Webb or Adoption Services, Inc. This can be verified through the Tennessee licensing agency. Any posts to the contrary are false. Any posts contrary to these facts are considered libelous. Ms. Webb is renting the house you mention in your post. There is no "scam" as you assert. Any posts to the contrary are false and libelous.

I just wanted to say good luck to everyone tomorrow unfortunately we are too far way to attend. I really wish we could be there to show our support for all adoptive parents and birth mothers. Good luck and I can't wait to hear what happens.

Maybe she is not affiliated now but she was when I signed up in MARCH 2007. SHE WAS A PART OF ALL OF IT THEN DON"T KID YOURSELF.
Just because she is represented does not mean she is not guilty just like ED.

Losing Faith and Jillian,

Marcia is just doing her job in representing Donna. She has only heard Donna's side so of course she would think Donna is not guilty. Even if she believes Donna is guilty she has a professional obligation to stand up for her client. Oh if only Marcia's client would do the same for her own clients. Anyway at least the divorce is legit even if in the end it does end up as part of a bigger scam, which only God knows.

The reason Donna can file suit and win damages is because she sued before the money was gone. Now unless AA was bonded and insured we are all hosed and Donna gets more of our money only all to herself this time. Yep Marcia, Donna is totally innocent, HOGWASH. If I had all the money those two stole from all of us I could hire a fancy attorney to get an innocent verdict too. The problem is she and ED took all our savings so we are all stuck. Just because Donna was smart enough to let Ed put everything in his name does now mean she is innocent in the slightest. It just means Ed is such a poor lawyer and business man he took all the liability. Unless as mentioned before the scam is to let one tak the complete fall so the other can get them started up again.

We will be praying today for the outcome of the hearing. We are not able to make it as we just got back in town from a week work trip last night and did not have time or work freedom to be able to get down to LR. Those of you going please post what happens and what info is gained if any by being there.

Donna Webb has not filed suit against anyone, nor won any "damages" as you assert. No verdict has been entered against Donna Webb because no criminal charges have been filed against her. The postings you are making are false and libelous.

Got your email and got your point. Legally clear does not mean morally and ethically clear. We are allowed to post our opinions and thoughts. No one has claimed anything as fact unless quoting a viable source. I did not say she won or filed anything as far as court cases. I was answering the questions above about the child support issue raised in comment 128. We have been expressing our concerns and opinions and trying to piece together the puzzle AA has shattered. If Donna would like to get on hear and explain rather than hide behind you and lawsuit threats we would all love to know what is going on!!!!!! We know our money is gone. We just want answers. Threatening us because we are forming and expressing opinions based on what Donna and Ed have said and done to us will not help get answers. Legal loop holes that allow them/her to win cases does not take away the words they BOTH have told us or the pain they have caused. What else do we have to go on??? You can win cases for her all day long but the fact is we all paid them money based on her salewomanship and none of us have children and this was all before she was terminated and while she was running the day to day operations at AA. Since when is our opinions of how a person has treated us regulated?

TO WHOMEVER SENT SOME OF US THE ILL INFORMED E-CARD SAYING THAT WE ALL ARE PREJUDGING ED WEBB.
I am sorry but you are severly mistaken. We have over a 65 person support group each with their own story of his Web of lies we have over 40 (and growing daily) complaint cases proving Mr Webb is what was posted on the forums. His adoption license is being revoked on Tuesday. There is also a group gathering EVIDENCE that he has committed fraud and will be getting him disbarred. After that there will hopfully be a case to put him in jail for theft of all of our money.
He has produced adoptions? Yes, but as a front to get more money. He has been not matching the people already on their waiting list. They would have a birthmother agree to adoption & they use that baby to get new couples to pay in & adopt the baby to them. To keep the cash coming in! That is the part that makes me the most angry. And the fact that they advertised themselves as a Christian agency. This has been told to us by the DHS offices in Arkansas based on their ongoing investigation.
His personal life may be a mess, but that should not affect all of our personal lives. Attorneys who have looked into him and some who know him said that he has no money. So where is all of our thousands, cause we all don't have babies.
You need to not make statements or lecture people when you do not know the facts. I am not sure who you are, but your card was ill timed and your statements showed you to be very ill informed or else covering for him. It is a daily struggle to feel what is right and do what is right as we have all dealt with AA negligence through out this process and then to find out they were purposly scamming us. So frustration and venting is expected. Too much evidence is against him so we are not pre-judging as you implied.
No one will feel bad when the TRUTH comes out as you stated becuase the TRUTH is already out. Yes we do need to pray for him and a heart change so he will do the right thing. More importantly everyone who has been scammed by them need to be prayed for.
it was probably donna gail. i hate this for all of you and i hope that they both get what they deserve.

Do not kid yourself. He may take the fall but she was central to it all. It took ten years for her to take him down. Ed started this as a hardcore heart felt loving mission. If you fall for the game of it was all him, then you may need to search no farther than that, for answers. Ed was guilty of hanging on to her, and trying to love no matter.

What the heck!!!!!!!!! Have you not been reading these blogs. We never said Ed was an island and HAVE ALWAYS said Donna Gail is just as guilty as him. She just was more of a weasel then to get him to put it all in his name. They both are on the weasel team.

To say she over saw the activities is a understatement. Ten years ago it was a mission of love that the devil walked in to overtake. It was booming and a success with the money where it belonged. It had completed many wonderful adoptions. There was a small waiting list of about 12 or less, with very positive out look for those on the list un-matched. She took total absolute control from that point. Deception seemed to be looming for introduction, in the name of God. Neither are money managers. Quite the opposite. He has a great mind and had a wonderful heart. It is a sad day. I have never known, nor can I imagine, Ed to ask that deception be practiced. As for others I can't speak as to the same.
