The woman that Allen Killings killed, Margaret Gottschalk,is my biological mother. I never met her because I was adopted and I cried for hours when I had visits with her and Phillip when I was a baby. I had to look at her dead body at the visitation. It's pathetic how horrible people are. I don't know Allen Killings and I don't know why he did this, but it's pitiful that people are so evil.
Meghan is this Phillip Gottshalk from Silverton , Oregon ?

Please understand Meghan was understandably upset when she posted.
Please further understand that to me Margaret died when I was 7 and half when the judge said Rights are terminated. Meghan was born shortly after and was removed directly from the hospital. She was joined with us 11 days later. She knows and remembers nothing.
I went through the entire loss process when I was 7, my mother's death only made it real.
It's been extremely difficult for me to come full to grips with terms on anger, hurt, hatred, love and every single emotion out there.
No person is all bad, there is good in the worst of people and good comes out of the worst situations. I have seen this and have witnessed this for myself.
Meghan deleted the other account. I don't blame her.
I remember Cory, but I never met the 2 girls. How do we know that you are who you say?
How do we know that if we get to know you everything will be ok and safe?
What happened all these years has been unwordable. This heart still holds some winter in in.
Explain to me Judy, why does Phillip in a letter to me state that his daughters are Misty, Diana and Cory? Where does Judy come in?

Margaret too is my birth parent, she was 53 years old, not 16 for one. Phillip is not. Phillip is dead. He died of a drug over-dose is my understanding of it back in 2009. I was removed when I was 5 with my brothers. The last time I ever saw her I was 6 years old on Christmas day. I hated it when Meg came to us and had to go see them and am happy she has no memories. My memories make no sense to this day as they are pencil dots and she and Phillip are in my memories, though I cannot see them. I am the one that chose not to find her and I am proud of myself for that decision.

When Margaret died, my heart was filled with way too much emotion to even think clearly. I did not look at the body, but It saddens my heart that someone would do such a thing. I don't want to understand why or how. I just want people not to do such behavior.
