Protective Moms, Mothers of Lost Children, Trauma Survivors & Family Court Corruption RESOURCES: Articles, Books & Documentaries
"My hope is to shed light on the unknown so my readers may understand the answer to the most often asked question, "Why did you stay so long?" After reading my story and documentation, I pray this question will cease to be asked, and instead the question will be, "Why did we allow this man, the religious organizations, and the law and judicial system to abuse, harass and enslave this woman and her children."

Vengeful Father Syndrome
It has long been known by those who seek power over others, Hitler, the Taliban, Genghis Kahn and many others throughout history, that the way to destroy a population is to destroy their connections to their past. The men who would destroy women are not necessarily destroying only the mothers, their intent is to destroy the child. The mother is but a tool in this quest, a tool that serves as proof of the man's past. He must destroy her to break the connection and reeducate the child into a likeness of himself, or destroy the child trying.
It should be a goal of every court to uncover the past of any man who seeks custody of a child, an unnatural position for a male. Was he himself abused and now seeks to remake his own childhood through his offspring?
What of the people who help him in this endeavor? American society is the least giving of all modern societies, so the motivations of those who would place a child in an unnatural situation must be scrutinized. To seek power over groups of others, as is the case with lawyers, "experts", police and judges, they must have the tendencies of a narcissist, a sociopath or a psychopath as a result of treatment they received as a child. They suffer from Stockholm syndrome, identifying with the abusive person, stemming from the abuse they suffered.

I AM MOTHER: An Open Letter to Judge Gorcyca by Kimberly Bowers
"I am Mother.
I am the 58,000 women a year who have faced your courtroom bias.
I am the protective parent fighting for my children.
I am the activist effecting legislative change and educating others.
And though you steal my voice with your gag order,
know that where I am silenced thousands more speak in my place.
We are many. We are united." - Kimberly Burke Bowers
