The doctors were hearing the kid's symptoms from Kate. The doctors are responsible for not really doing lots of dx work when things were getting worse for Joshua. She wrote about calling for more or new meds all the time because Joshua was having problems. No hospice was ever able to meet her needs because they controlled the meds and made the decisions so we heard the Joshua was too medically complicated. The specialists were often in Portland and consulted by phone.
Over the years, every single child had a serious disease or three. Adam has had Marfans, ASD and others. Megan had Tourettes. The list goes on and on. I believe she could not get enough attention with chronic illnesses so Joshua and Bethany had to have terminal illnesses. I believe everything she does is intentional.
Talking about every one of the kids having multiple health issues, really bad, serious issues, my hope is that they thoroughly examine each of the kids, both mentally and physically. Wouldn't it be wonderful if each child had many issues wiped off of their slate and can live a life of happiness and leave fear behind??? I don't know how many of the kids are old enough to understand the labels their mother has put on each one but if they understand anything about their health issues I hope that the issues just *aren't there*. Watching Joshua and Bethany *dying* for soooooo long and then being told they are NOT dying has to eventually make them question in their own minds if maybe they aren't as sick as they were told. I know for me I would be scared to death that I might die if I had brothers and sisters who were dying. They maybe never spoke up but I wonder if they were scared not only for their sister and brother dying but if they would die also. I'd like to see each of those kids be told that there was not as much wrong with them as they were led to believe. I know, wishful thinking but still, they all have so much wrong with them according to Kate that it would just be a relief to know some are ok or more ok than previously thought..

One thing I'd like to ask ( along with many things) is about Adam and Megan, on one of the comments it was said they were raised with Kate as their mom. Were they Charlies kids and and raised by Kate or is she their natural mom? If they were Charlies, did Kate have any children before marrying Charlie? I don't know a lot of their background, I found them through another blogger and CB.

Megan and Adam are Charley and Kate's biological children. Megan was an accident. She and Charley had a friends with benefits type if relationship that ended with her being pregnant with Megan and getting married to Charley. Or so said Kate.

I had often wondered what had happened to Joshua. I've now read this thread and am shocked. I know that Kate must be lurking on here. How about stepping g forward!?

Many of us wish she would. But, she has legal issues so I am not holding my breath. I am just glad the kids are safe and healthy!

Wow! I followed Joshua and Bethany's CB pages for some time and, while I saw a number of red flags, I never expected the situation to be this bad. I am happy to hear that the kids are doing well outside the home.

Where was Charlie in all of this? I always thought it was suspicious that he was "working" so much. The CB page made it sound like he was gone all the time and barely involved with Joshua at all.

For those who are in their area- Is there still no mention of all of this in the local news (TV or papers)? Any court updates?

I live in Grants Pass and found this thread accidentally. I had never heard of the Parkers at all prior to this. I find this sickening. There has been nothing in the local news about this. If there is an ongoing investigation and pending court cases maybe something will come out once everything is said and done. My heart breaks for those kids and I hope whatever happens they are well taken care of.

Thank you for the inside information. If I had to guess, I would say that you are her twin brother but that's just a guess and neither here nor there.

I suspect that you have read through the 600+ posts. A lot of people were duped by Kate and like myself, gave money and prayers as we were lead to believe that her two youngest children were terminal.

Although the majority of us would like to know what actually took place to uncover her scheme, knowing that the children are safe is truly all that matters.

InTheKnow,

So, Kate's mother didn't hate her? She was not abused?

I am not in her family, but I don't want to reveal my name. The last thing I want is Kate retaliating at me for saying anything. I know Kate was incredibly mean to her mom. Kates mom did not hate her, but Kates behavior had to get old, you know?. Abuse? She always seemed happy with her family to me. They were always incredibly supportive of her in school and sports.

I do not blame you InTheKnow, I would not want her to rein down on me.

Kate has claimed that her brother abused her.

I agree about retaliation. I also hope the kids are safe from her grasp-- short term and long term

Thanks for stepping up and telling us a little about Kate.... No, never reveal your name, this woman is just plain evil....Again, thanks, I'm glad someone decided to tell us what they know. I believe you!!

Intheknow - thank you for sharing. It makes total sense that she has been like this all her life. She has made many people scared to doubt or question her without fear of her wrath. I think that's a reason many of us are choosing to remain anonymous on here, too. If you questioned her, even with sincere concern or curiosity, you were "snarky" and blacklisted as a "friend", or if you dare take away attention from her. Also, she spoke with such medical knowledge and authority, I really believed she was pre med. I remember thinking with all the special needs her kids had it was great she had all that experience. Anyway, I do hope through this trial in her life, she'll grow and make some real changes. It's so sad that it had to come to this (children taken from her custody), and I wish healing and hope for them all.

Your post 658 was removed. If you repost and a couple of people hit reply, there is a good chance that the replies won't be deleted, This is often an issue when something truly vile is posted and people try unsuccessfully to get Topix to get rid of the replies as well as the original post. This time it can be used to keep information posted that "you know who" is probably trying to keep people from seeing.

Last night when asked if I was her twin, I said I was not due to not wanting to be exposed or retaliated against. In truth, I am. I didn't want the attention or my sisters wrath again. When I read my name specifically in a post about
My mothers sickness and death, that I didn't let her know about it? I couldn't NOT say anything.

My name is Curt. I am Kates twin brother. When one of my sisters came across this blog yesterday for the first time, I read every post... I was disgusted and felt shame for my sister and her actions. I feel sorry for those of you that she duped and/or misled.

Kate is a bully. Kate is manipulative. Kate has destroyed any relationship she's ever had as soon as anyone didn't do or say what she wanted to hear. Family, friends... it doesn't matter. She's been this way since I can remember.

We had a rule in our house... no hitting girls. One of my earliest memories of Kate is her slapping herself repeatedly on her forearm right in front of me, then yelling out for me to stop hitting her. My dad believed her, and I got spanked. Why she did that? I have no idea. She held that over me for years. That was probably in the first or second grade.

As a twin, her choice to destroy our bond rips at my heart daily. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her and those kids.... my nieces and nephews that I have not been allowed to know and love. I hope to know them someday.

As her twin brother, I have continued to do something throughout life to Kate, but stopped in 2009. I gave out olive branches. Every time I did so, she destroyed them. I gave up after our last conversation in 2009. What she said to me was just wrong and I won't repeat it here.

I apologize for not doing this first... being upfront and not hiding behind a screen name. It is what it is.

I just want my nieces and nephews to be safe and given a true chance at a real life. School, friends, family, love, activities, sports...real relationships. Life.

Whatever happens to Kate, my conscience is clear. I've tried to love her. When mom died, I used the only conduit to her available, DHS. I gave my phone number & a loving message to her. It was confirmed that Charlie got it and they said they wouldn't be calling me. Olive branch destroyed.
