In 2011-this wish list was up for others to buy Joshua all the fun he could have for his 5.5 bday before he died. You can read Kate's little message on here too. So besides cash money, here are some gifts swindled out of caring individuals.

WOW. This happened MORE THAN ONCE!? Didn't she do this again over the summer? Holy hell.

I'm still trying to figure out how Krazy Kate was scammed? Maybe she has multiple personalities? I often wondered how anyone could not see her craziness. She was so controlling she told the people who were helping her both financially and spiritually what to say and what not to say. If you dared cross or question her, either she or her put bull daughter but your head off. Or a "friend" would comment saying she moderates the comments to spare Kate from the truth, err, I mean nasty comments. I call BS on anyone but Kate moderating anything because she is way too controlling.

I did find it interesting when she asked for multiple $100-200+ Lego sets meant for a 5 year old...mostly Star Wars which is easy to resell. I am also wondering how Kate got scammed? Seems like those of us who gave to her did.
I also don't understand how sick Joshua really was/is? Some of it had to be real so how can he suddenly be better? Kate, if you are reading here, you have some explaining to do! I gave money to you and prayed daily for your family. If this is all a misunderstanding please say so and update all of us.

The poster talking about "kate Parker" being scammed I believe is referring to Kate Estes who does have a very sick son dying of Mitochondrial Disease. This Kate E. was not told the whole truth by Kate Parker!

Joshua does have Spinal bifida and a Chiari 1 malformation along with a chromosome abnormality. But many of his illness where presented in a way that was not 100% truthful to receive multiple diagnosis from other Dr.s.

Someone suggested that the poster meant Kate E. The poster clarified that she meant Kate Parker and has answered no further questions.

Sorry I missed her clarifying Kate parker. Maybe she means Kate was scammed by the medical staff? But staff treated her son on her information and there limited observations as they live so far from Portland.

I'm sorry. The medical staff did not scam her. Joshua sees/has seen way too many doctors for one of them to be scamming Kate. And what would their motivation be? No way. Also, Bethany saw a handful of doctors as well. Some of them the same, some of them different. I think 'Dr. S' should have caught onto this mess years ago. Either Kate lied about some of the things Dr. S (who she absolutely REFUSED to quit taking her kids to) or Dr. S is incompetent. IMO.

Well this all explains why she admittedly refused to change doctors. I remember her complaining about Dr. S's care when it came to Bethany one time but made it very clear that she would not change peds as long as Joshua were alive. Isn't that the was of MbP? I know it was suggested many times to seek more care for Bethany but she always yelled at anyone who suggested it and said she would not seek anything while Joshua was alive.

7 days before creating the 5.5 birthday registry linked above, the below plea from Kate appeared on a friend's blog and likely others. Simultaneously, she was requesting more than $2K in toys and for people to pay for Charley to take a leave from work to spend time with Joshua "before it's too late." July 2011.

My family needs financial help. Charley needs to take a few weeks off work (via FMLA) & because we’ve had a very tough year already (114 days inpatient between Joshua & Bethany in the past 8 months), he has no sick leave or vacation time left, and we no longer have any financial reserves. This time off is not a “want”; it is most definitely a “need”. For all of Joshua’s life, Charley has worked a job that requires him to be gone 60+ hours per week, but provides excellent medical insurance. He has not gone to the hospital when Joshua has had surgeries because he has had to work. He’s been a good provider for our family & has worked hard to ensure that Joshua is taken care of. Now, however, he is feeling completely overwhelmed with trying to simultaneously deal with working so many hours each week while coping with the knowledge that his son is dying. He is emotionally distraught. He has no down time to process any of this. He isn’t able to be here when Joshua is awake to spend time with him. He & I have almost zero time together anymore & that is challenging our marriage at a time when we need each other the most.
This afternoon, I got home from taking Bethany & Hannah to the orthotist to get casted for their AFOs & David to the orthodontist to get his retainer (he got his braces off on Monday) right before Charley left for work. He asked if I would come talk to him for a minute while he got ready and when I sat down, he fell apart, telling me that he just can’t do this anymore.“This” being working while dealing with Joshua’s decline. He knows he can’t quit & he wouldn’t do that, but he is standing on the edge of a gaping hole & trying desperately to avoid falling in. I completely understand how he’s feeling ~ there are days when I feel like I can’t handle anything and all I have to do is take care of the kids, not leave home to go to a job for 12 hours & pretend that everything is fine! I understand that my husband feels he’s missed out on so much of Joshua’s life & he wants the chance to spend some time with his little boy before Joshua dies. But without his income, we couldn’t make it, and without a way to cover his income, he can’t take a leave of absence from work. He needs time off to regain his mental balance & to make some memories with Joshua before it’s too late.
Many people have said to let them know if there is anything they can do to help. Now I have an answer for that offer. If you want to help in a tangible way during this very difficult time, please make a donation to my paypal account ([email protected]~ if you click the “gift” tab, paypal won’t take out any fees) to help us raise money so that Charley can take a short leave of absence from his job.
Through Joshua’s 25 surgeries & hospitalizations & everything else he’s gone through, I’ve never asked for help. I have never wanted anyone to accuse me of profiting from my child’s medical condition and I don’t want to be accused of that now. If the situation were not desperate, I would not be writing this post. It is, though, so I am. If you want to help, please send a gift through paypal. I will be grateful beyond anything I can put into words if you do. If you don’t want to help and/or think it’s terrible of me to ask for financial assistance from people online, that’s fine. My only request of you is that you keep your opinion to yourself. I also hope you never find yourself in a situation that would make you need to rely on the kindness of strangers to get through. It’s easy to judge negatively when you haven’t stood in this place, too.
Thank you.
~Kate

I was easily distracted. I meant Kate Estes. I am sorry for the confusion. This is what happens when you discuss something online and have multiple distractions. I meant Kate Estes. Not Kate Parker.

With my child with chronic issues, I jump to a new doctor whenever I think it is advantageous. Kate's loyalty was strange. Even her choice to do no more surgeries was strange given that she was giving him meds to keep him alive and functioning. The noteriety and attention seem to be the prime reason for her choices.

Mountain View, CA is the location of Google and many large servers. I deduce that Outsider is using a proxy or it's just some weird internet thing. IP isn't always reliable, nor are the locations presented here.

For instance, I am nowhere near "Clementon, NJ." That's just where my ISP routes my connection from, I assume.

Kate also refused to consult with other specialists across the country for both children. I wouldn't be surprised if she herself has an opiate addiction problem. She has also claimed that she also has a Chiari Malformation. She has also made many other claims; childhood sexual abuse, being pregnant & then miscarrying (she participated in a pregnancy forum, not long before concentrating solely on Joshua's illnesses)
Claims about her other children's illnesses/problems include:
3 children with Chiari Malformations
Autism Spectrum
2 Children with RAD
Precocious Puberty (Megan)
"Pre" Marfan's Syndrome (Adam)
2 children needing feeding tubes
Plus others I've forgotten.

When she had her adoption blog online, she would write long rants berating people about not donating. This is a woman who clearly is mentally ill.

IDonated, can I ask if you are on the same side of the country as Clementon, NJ?

Plus almost all her kids were at one time a multiple.
So she has said in the past.
