An Act of War

preface: We will not here debate the rights of birth parents vs adoptive parents vs same sex parents, vs,VS,VS

This article addresses only one caseThe case of 1 Canadian child, Kaydance Paige Etchells, daughter of legally married same sex couple, Lauren Ann Etchells & Tasha Brown.


Kaydance's kind of story is sadly becoming so familiar as to be almost trite - but, for the parent & extended family left behind, devastation is a more proper description. 


Parental abduction is an act of war. 

Let that sink in just for a minute...
Parental Abduction is an Act of War.

The other parent is almost always taken by surprise that the person they once loved more than any other, the person they shared wedding vows with, the person they cuddled at night & made plans for a life with, the person they conceived their first child with, the person they offered comfort to & sought out for comfort... STOLE their CHILD!

When adults cannot put aside their own anger & selfish desires & collaborate on a separation & a life beyond that initial separation which should allow their child the best of the happy home that they had created together, but which the adults then blew apart... they must lay their disagreements before a court of law &, in doing so, they are bound by law to wait for the deliberance of the court without taking independant action &, when a ruling is made, to accept & apply the ruling of the cour


Lauren Ann Etchells (dual UK/CDN citizen) is a fugitive from Canadian Law, having falsely obtained new passports & fled Vancouver Island to London, England on May 8, 2016. Lauren Ann Etchells faces 2 counts of Disobeying a Lawful Court Order & one count of Parental Abduction. 




Europe, Please Watch for Me
so I can go HOME to my MamaT.
I just want BOTH my Mommies
to love me again!
I know if we go
home again that the Judge will help
MamaT & MamaL sort it all out
so that we can ALL OF US be
merry again.
Please, if you see any of us,
call the authorities.
All that is wrong might yet be made right.
 

Blonde haired, blue eyed, 2 yr old Kaydance was abducted from her own country, Canada, on May 8, 2016 & has been dragged to & fro in planes, trains, & automobiles for the last 8 months, evading capture by the authorities. 


Those are the facts.



Here is another fact...

As of today, it has been two hundred & six days (as of March 19, 2017 it has been 308 days), it has been  filled with unending agony, anxiety, heartbreak, helplessness & misery for Kaydance's mother,Tasha Brown. 

Since the day her precious daughter Kaydance was stolen from her, the calendar never stops ticking off dates, & each sunset is another open wound upon Tasha Brown's mothering soul.

Message to Lauren:
It is only a matter of time before you are apprehended & brought before justice. Lauren, I will support judicial leniency for you once Kaydance is returned to Canada. The longer you keep trunning, the firmer is the resolve to keep the hounds at your heels.

To Kaydance, my Love. I will never stop looking for you, my daughter, my sweet sweet Kaydance. I will NEVER, EVER stop looking! I love you Kaydance; MamaT loves you so much. I'll never stop searching for you. 
      _____________________________________________
                             
As of today, March 19, 2019, Lauren Ann Etchells continues to count on strangers who don't "SEE" her & who don't REPORT SEEING HER & Kaydance & baby Marcus. 

A recent quote from Lauren Ann Etchells:


"People are too stupid to even notice me, & anyway why should they bother about it? Nobody here (Europe) gives a care about one Canadian mum bleating about her rights. Please! 
No one here thinks I'm anything more than a sweet little mum; they don't know that I took Kaydance without Tasha's knowledge. Tasha has absolutely zero chance of ever seeing her daughter again! The authorities are such idiots, and people are just sheep that only bleat about their own problems, they could care less about Tasha's whining on.

Eventually Tasha will hear that, after May 7, 2017 (when the Hague Convention Abduction act will not AUTOMATICALLY extradite me to Canada), I have quietly turned myself in before an International court that will not give a hoot for Canada; I expect that I will get clean off here. And once I walk out that courtroom door, Kaydance & I will disappear into the middle east, never to be heard from again.  

As I did say earlier, Tasha has zero chance of every seeing Kaydance again. 
And that's all I have to say about this personal matter."

What do YOU think? 
Should Lauren be returned to Canada to face her charges of Parental Abduction & 2 counts violations of Orders of the Court?
Should Canadian child Kaydance be returned to her mother, Tasha, who was awarded full custody by the Courts after Lauren fled the country?

If YOU see Lauren Ann Etchells, will YOU report her to the authorities & end this agony for Tasha & the rest of Kaydance's Canadian family?

School Yard Bully

       
Just two good ol' boys bonding over the fence?
 Padre's version: "Oh Hai Mom! Crispin & I are just hanging out, y'know, just a coupla roosters in the old hen house, doing a little crowin', hahahah. Nothing to see here. Gee, it's so cold out here Ma; I'm wearing a yak-fur coat & I'm practically shivering. You really ought to go back inside the house before you catch a cold; I've got everything covered here. Trust me." 
What Padre is actually saying:"Listen you shrimpy little freak of nature, I'll just reach over & take your lunch $$ whenever I feel like it. And, by lunch $, I mean your actual breakfast, lunch & supper EVERY gatdang day. And you'll keep your dumb cow mouth shut about it or I'll jump this fence & run you right into the ground. Don't let this pretty face fool ya Son; I'm a reining fiend & a straight up Cowpony. Snitches get stitches! Ya lopsided runt."

Mosquito @ Sunrise

A friend takes an airborne ride 10/29/16, courtesy of the Komarno village mascot! The word 'komarno' translates to 'mosquito' from Ukrainian, thus the village name. No lie. 
11/10/16 Sunrise viewed from the back porch. Feeling the threat of winter in the air, I dragged the mounting block from the pasture into the barn after yesterdays joyful ride down the trails
You may have guessed from the snow cover that this morning's coffee was not served outside, was copiously flavoured with Carolann's Irish, & was enjoyed inside the farmhouse whilst toasting my tootsies next to the woodstove.

Stumbling Blocks & Stepping Stones


"Isn't it strange that Princes & Kings
And clowns who caper in stardust rings,
And common people like you and me
Are builders for eternity?

Each is given a set of tools,
A shapeless mass, & a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life has flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone."

Fear In the Free World


David Remnick, from November 9/16, The New Yorker:
"The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety....

In the coming days, commentators will attempt to normalize this event. They will try to soothe their readers and viewers with thoughts about the “innate wisdom” and “essential decency” of the American people. They will downplay the virulence of the nationalism displayed, the cruel decision to elevate a man who rides in a gold-plated airliner but who has staked his claim with the populist rhetoric of blood and soil. George Orwell, the most fearless of commentators, was right to point out that public opinion is no more innately wise than humans are innately kind. People can behave foolishly, recklessly, self-destructively in the aggregate just as they can individually. Sometimes all they require is a leader of cunning, a demagogue who reads the waves of resentment and rides them to a popular victory."

Just My Dog

"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have. He is just my dog." ~ Gene Hill

Enchanted Snowfall

"The pure air & dazzling snow belong to things beyond the reach of all personal feeling, almost beyond the reach of life. Yet such things are a part of our life, neither the least noble nor the most terrible. ~ Frederick Soddy
