Robin, can you explain a few things please? What adopted daughter? As far as I know she's only adopted the 2 girls from Ukraine. As far as the other rumor, where did that come from?  (Apr 22, 2014 | post #3979)

I think the original question was whether Kate knew the original MWOP author or not. She did; were they offline buddies? No. But their acquaintance online was the only reason that the adoption button was put up. I'm really not trying to come off as a b#%^ buster, but I have no reason to lie as I don't post much here, but I'm just trying to keep the record (so to speak) straight on some things I have direct knowledge of.  (Apr 14, 2014 | post #3879)

I know for a fact Kate did know the original MWOP author.  (Apr 14, 2014 | post #3875)

As far as I know (others who've known her longer may know more) our Bloggy friend has a much better memory & paper trail :-) I don't remember if it was mentioned here, but her adoption fundraising plea blog button was removed from the original MWOP blog because Kate had asked for some prayer shout outs & blog mention from Kelly Stamps (of Kelly's Korner) & Kelly expressed concern over Kate's association with MWOP.  (Apr 11, 2014 | post #3799)

Can anyone who is familiar with both stories state whether she had been this way prior to seeing that a sick child could be a cash cow? Yes. She was interactive with various groups of people regarding the April Rose scam. Kate's indignation & anger knew no bounds in regards to McKinney & Beccah. It seems that it was shortly after her postings on the TTC forums is when she started to become involved with forums that had to do with both women; I'd approximate it wasn't even a year later that she announced her desire to adopt the girls & that's when the fundraising started in earnest.  (Apr 11, 2014 | post #3794)

If memory serves, the church that gave them the large donation was one that they did not attend for very long & I don't remember how long after the adoption, but they stopped Attending there.  (Apr 11, 2014 | post #3793)

I just wanted to say that in cases of sexual abuse, tragically, many children's allegations were not believed, even by family members. Do I believe Kate was sexually abused by her brother? Given what I know now about Kate, no I do not. It's tragic that because of the nature of the crimes against her, it gives her very little credibility.  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #3503)

I absolutely would. Maybe I missed whether you've said or not, but have you had any personal interactions with Kate Parker? Whether it be online or off?  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #3463)

I'd like to address the issue of sympathy (or empathy, depending on ones life experiences. I personally have a great deal of both for any child that has endured the horror & tragedy of any type of abuse. I've seen what happens to a child as they grow into adulthood after experiencing a childhood of abuse. I've seen the mental illness, the addictions & the results thereof. I've also seen adults, who with no childhood abuse commit absolute atrocities involving children. As far as the field of Psychology/Psychia try has come, there's still many more years before certain personality types are understood. But, there is still a great deal known & fortunately, because of that, children's lives can be saved. The reason why I really can't look at the possibility that Kate Parker is innocent is because I've seen & experienced too much in my lifetime. I won't play this game with the people (whoever they are) on this forum who want to cry foul. Yes, there have been parents unjustly accused of abuse. In this situation? No. My sympathy is strictly reserved for the children in this family. I dearly hope that their scars heal & they can go on to experience happiness in their lives.  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #3452)

I don't remember that, however always cringed when I saw his teeth, they looked like there was no dental care done at all.  (Apr 2, 2014 | post #2786)

It stated in the article that the case is still being investigated. It'll be interesting to see whether Kate hires private counsel (I can envision trying to entice one or more of the attention getting, controversial attorneys in the country to take her case). I believe that Faith went back to the Philipines to give birth & somebody mentioned Adam is also there? Although there is a huge sigh of relief for so many of us who've been working so hard to have Kate investigated for quite a length of time & knowing the Parker children are safe, it still doesn't diminish that gut wrenching feeling of actually seeing these indictments . There are many women who even if they aren't publically named, that should be given a great deal of gratitude to; they've spent months, no make that years, that they've spent worrying, praying & spent sleepless nights worrying about these children. They've spent many hours working very hard to convince authorities that these children were in danger. The children are safe. Blessed Be.  (Apr 1, 2014 | post #2721)

Speaking for myself, who cares who you are, because your goal was not achieved.  (Apr 1, 2014 | post #2700)

What strikes me as disingenuous about those & similar posts was that if you hadn't read any other online postings by Kate, yes, it does appear to be a parent who's absolutely on the edge & overwhelmed. This is a woman who researches everything & seemingly has an endless range of knowledge about pediatric medical/educationa l/emotional conditions. She participated in adoptive forums, including RR & corresponded with other adoptive parents. Are we to think then that she went into the adoption of these girls totally blind? I don't think so, because when Kate first announced & started the process, concerns were raised by people who were friends with her at the time as to whether her & Charley could adopt two children who had special needs when they supposedly had such a large family of children who themselves had many special needs (Note-I don't have the entries, but I seem to remember she minimized the special needs of her children at least on her adoption blog & it looks as if she lied in regards to the home studies & medical screenings) Kate cut many people off during that period of time. Anyone who didn't totally show 100% support whether real or imagined. Kate would do this in most of the online forums when other members would begin to question her, then move on to yet another forum, until the same thing happened. And if it was possible, she would delete any postings she had made.  (Mar 16, 2014 | post #1874)
