Isabella Miller is now 15. When she was 9, her mom fled the United States with her for parts unknown to everyone except the people that helped them escape the judicial tyranny of the Vermont Federal Court.
You see, her mother (before Isabella was even thought of) had a lesbian relationship with another woman and went to Vermont to get a civil union because same-sex marriage had not yet been legalized. Isabella was born in Virginia in 2002, and Lisa Miller is my birth mother. Janet Jenkins was my “other mother.”
Something marvelous happened to Lisa (my real mom) – she was gloriously saved and became a committed Christian, leaving the homosexual lifestyle, dissolving the civil union, and that’s when all the trouble began.
Janet wanted visitation with Isabella. She wasn’t her real mom; she wasn’t even a relative; in fact, given the opportunity twice, she refused to adopt Isabella. So the court battles began – first, in Virginia, then in Vermont, then in Virginia, then in Vermont and on and on.
Visitation was set up and began erratically and haphazardly – missed visits, miscommunications. Finally, there were unsupervised visitations. As a 7-year old, Isabella started wetting the bed, having nightmares and wanting to commit suicide; she was under terrible emotional distress, which the courts totally ignored.
Isabella’s birth mom, my real mom, stopped visitation. The judge in Vermont was not happy, and he was going to give me to Janet as a result of Lisa’s disregard for the court orders.
On September 27, 2009, Lisa and Isabella started their exile from their homeland. Isabella may wish to return when she is 18 and would need support for school and living expenses. 419 Fund has created a funding opportunity should Isabella return to the United States free from the courts. If you would like to contribute, 419 Fund and Isabella and Lisa would be very grateful.
