The story of Justina Pelletier a sick 15-year-old teenager removed from her parents custody by Boston Children’s Hospital/DCF is heartbreaking, but is she the first child they have done this to?

I came across this article claiming they have done the same thing to another family with a sick child being treated at Boston Children’s Hospital, the same hospital Justina was being treated at.

Here’s a Snipped part of it-

My name is Kathleen McClung, I am from Fairmont WV, and my 8 year old son was taken by DCF March 20th, 2013. He is being put up for adoption.

My trial begins April 7th in Lowell, MA.

I took my son, February 1st [2013] to Boston Children’s Hospital, as a renal (kidney) failure patient. We came from a wonderful hospital in Pittsburgh, to be near family when we ended up homeless last year.

Our doctor,  in Pittsburgh spoke out for us, when we were accused of medical neglect in less than 50 days under the care of Boston Children’s Hospital Nephrology. The day they took my son, the ER doctor documented that by son was medically stable and well.

The following day they went to the Lowell juvenile court, and started my son was in life threatening medical crisis, asking with a four page affidavit, stating I failed to give my son life sustaining treatment daily (which I proved by the machines log he did receive), of not maintaining a renal diet, which had since been proven I did. And not giving my son his medication, of being RUDE & BELLIGERENT, and Aggressive.

October 2 the changed the goal to adoption, without cause.

June 6 after the months in isolation on 10 south in children’s hospital Boston, they moved my then seven year old son to their locked psych unit Bater 5, where he stayed until Oct 29th when he was moved into pre adoptive placement with the foster family in Boston.

I have had parenting, pysch, and drug evals proving I am fit, as has my husband, shortly after the d cf worker threatened my daughter we moved to Nashua NH or[sp, out] of their reach, living with my uncle.

I am asking for help, so much has happened in this year so many abuses towards my son and family and i can not seem to get anyone to listen. The hospital started they will refuse my son a life saving treatment if he returns to me, a kidney transplant.

But if he stays in dcf custody the heart damage and mental abuse he has received under their care is going to be the least of it. I am afraid, i want my son home he wants to be home.

We have done nothing wrong but come to Boston please please help my family. No one else will.
