The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the MYTH, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. ~ John F. Kennedy, 35th president of US 1917-1963

I'm so sorry for your loss. I am astounded by your strength after such a traumatizing event. I found out about The Amanda Truth Project through facebook and I am so grateful for this site. There is so much information are so many resources to help me. I was accused of shaking my baby after he suffered from retinal hemorrhaging and a subdural hematoma after a short fall. When there are so many doctors that persistently insisting that someone HAD to have shaken my son, you begin to wonder if someone really did something to hurt your baby. I began to mentally assess everyone around me from my son's babysitter to family members, but then I'd snap back into reality. I saw him fall. I was there with him. Nobody abused him. I simply cannot believe there are so many "medical experts" that have tunnel vision when it comes to SBS. Nothing in science is fool proof or 100% accurate. Isn't that why they call it "practicing" medicine? I'm disgusted in the hospital staff that called DCFS on me and now I have to pray and fight everyday so I don't lose custody of my son. 


I'm very sorry to hear that you were falsely accused and even more so that your son was hurt.  There is a prevailing belief that persists regarding subdural hematoma and retinal hemorrhage injuries being solely the cause of shaking an infant.  I'm relieved that you are realizing that this may not be the case and aren't looking askance at your loved ones.  If you like, contact me via email and I will give you some journal articles that might be of use to you in your defense at family court.  I highly recommend getting an attorney, even if you don't have criminal charges.

My husband is currently in jail waiting for sentencing for his false conviction of SBS. I appreciate someone bringing a spotlight to this issue, and welcome the chance to show my support.

Tonya, your story breaks my heart.  But the site you've put together to help others is phenomenal!  I applaud you in every single way possible and can't thank you enough for being here for our family during this time.  You've given us a new hope we didn't know existed!

 

Lisa, your own is even crazier than the one that prompted me to create this.  Thank you for sharing that with me and know that I am here for your family.

I think what your doing is amazing! I want to thank you on behalf of every family that has had their lives impacted in some way by this. If it wasn't for people like you that cared enough to make a difference than there would never be change and things would go un noticed! Please know you make a difference and even a tragedy can turn into a blessing. Thank you!

 

Thanks, Angela. That kind of emotional support helps. I wish you the best as well with the roads you're traveling. Let me know if there's anything we can do.

Thank you for your message on the ketv website! We are still in shock over this verdict, because the evidence that Jackson was a very sick baby with no signs of abuse was so apparent. Since we had little experience and a public defender, the DA was able to twist and distort the system in to a guilty verdict. Your strength and fortitude are amazing!  Patti

Patti, thank you so much for your support.  Please feel free to contact me via the "Contact Us" page so we may communicate more in private.  It wasn't so much that the attorney was a public defender as the problem was that the P.D. didn't know how to defend these types of cases.  I only wish I had found out about the case sooner so I might have been able to offer some help.

Thanks, Jen!  That is so nice of you to say.  I think we all need that kind of emotional support at times.  Thank you for all you do, too.  It is not unnoticed.

Brian, I am so sorry to read of this case. If there is anything that I can do to help, please contact me. Unfortunately it only takes one doctor to think it is shaken baby syndrome, regardless of how many doctors a person can put before that one saying it's not. As for the interviewing, there is still a prevailing belief that the last person known to be with the child is the perpetrator. Please do contact me privately via the email on the "Contact Us" webpage if you'd like to talk or if you think there is anything I can do to help this man's attorney be successful in getting these charges dismissed or having a jury find him not guilty. This is sad.

Sad story :( You lost your baby and then your husband was taken away too. I hope an appeal at some point sets him free. I've seen quite a few articles on this mistaken SBS issue (especially out of the UK). Also saw a cop show - (Flashpoint I think?) - that aired an epsiode of this.
