In may of 2016 my husband and I bakeracted
our ten yrs old adopted son to MHRC. After 8 half years of doctors, medication s, and therapy we were forced for his own safety again to baker act him. He wa...s neglected by his biological mother before her suicide. He wasn't fed properly, wasn't changed and sat in soiled diapers in a crib while his mother battled depression . After her suicide I was handed a beautiful blue eyed 18mo old baby boy. We are dedicated, wonderful parents of 4. Our son is diognosed by several doctors and Wolfsons ward with RAD and a list of mental illness as his mother had before her suicide. We had him under many doctors care. For 54 days my child was put on medication that had terrible adverse effects. He wouldnt eat, ripped his hair out, deficated, urinated and consumed medication that could have killed him. We reached out to his doctor as I had her cell phone. My text show a gravesdang er of concern and worry. I reached out to Neptune beach police and had them come to our home the morning my son injested a whole bottle of Benedryl, and diet pills while we were sleeping. I demanded the officer get help and call DCF for help. He did and I begged on the phone as the police report shows for help. He left that day. No DCF arrived. That week we then reached out to a company called Crysylis to get my son on a Sipp inbound program that would assist in his illnesses. My husband put a lock ony son's door at night that was connected to our room for his safety until we got help. At no point did we harm our child yet keep him alive. After two days of the lock we heard about door alarms. My husband went to home Depot and purchased them. They were used and not the locks for the next week. We also contact his doctor and let him know we had put the lock on and the doctor said that is a safe room until help arrives. Another week later no sign of DCF. We took our son to MHRC as he stood there in his own feces he had smeared all over himself. Our son has had a history for lying, manipulati ve behavior at school and at home. There were times we had police show up after school and say your son was disrobed today because he told the school you beat him this morning. I would drive him straight to Beaches ER to he examined and talked to. He was baker acted at that time also. This went on for years. May 7th we finally thought we were getting help as the staff assured us we would. My son stated he wanted to kill us, and he had voices in his head. Everything 700 pages of doctors and his own words validating years of this. Two days later I had Jacksonvil le Florida DCF investigat or Stacey Beaton in my home accusing us of child abuse and neglect. Absolutely no investigat ion was done. We tried 3 times to provide informatio n of years of medical, schooling, and we were told by Beaton "we have our own doctors now." Our son was removed by judge Gooding and Beaton 3 days during his baker act. We were. Not allowed to talk, show anything. Stacey had plenty to say and I just looked at the floor and cried. Our son was gone just like that. All 3 of our kids 7, 17, 18 living at home stated there was never abuse as well as many of our friends and family reached out to Bearon. Calls were not even returned. I spoke with my sons doctor DAvid Weiss for a lengthy 30 min and was told he had not released any medical to DCF again showing no investigat ion was done. Two weeks later my husband and I were both arrested in our front yard for child abuse. It's been over a year. Our son is gone, our girls were removed from our care during us trying to get a bond reduction. Our 18 yr old son left to manage a house. Upon our release our girls 7, 17 we're handed right back as we were seen to be great parents and of no harm by the state and the kids guardian adlidem. We have spent a year paying bonds, wearing ankle monitors as Beaton had them put on stating we might go find our son. We have absolutely no criminal records. My son stated I was a drug and alcoholic yet the next day court testing 0 drugs or alcohol showed in all their testing. We are facing felony 3 charges still as the months roll by. Our little girl is traumatize d. Shes been admitted into Wolfsons hospital twice with panic attacks and scared to death we will be taken again. Our little girl will not go to school, or friends bc of fear. Stacey Beaton abused her authority as a DCF investigat or with no investigat ion. We were not heard. Judge Gooding adopted my son out two mo ago here Jacksonvil le, Florida. Im forever broken as our family is. The system failed us.

Beautiful beaches, lots of places to visit, all kinds of great food, shopping everywhere
you go. Events all the time. Not to mention great profession al football teams playing at the stadium. I lived ...there for many years. Summertime can be really hot and humid, and it tends to rain alot. If you can live with that, I loved it.
I was raised in Jacksonvil
le . We would ride our bikes from the West side to downtown back in the 50s and ride our bikes from Sandal Wood , where my uncle lived , to the beach in the late 60s , early ...70s . Of course , boons farm , Maryjane and sweetie golds ended that . High times became our way of life and what a way of life it was , lol . Orange sunshine , microdot , window pane , alcuppco gold , blonde hashish , Jamaican trip and good ole rock and roll . Allman Brothers Band . Just saying . Iol

Sad to hear @Visit Jacksonvil
le's CEO is pushing for Bed taxes for Airbnb renters... doesnt he know- this will make the rentals too expensive. Doesnt he realize there is a huge group of travelers that ...DO not use hotels that should consider coming to Jacksonvil le!? Why is he trying to box every Jacksonvil le traveler into a hotel traveler.. ... SAD TO HEAR someone who is about bringing people to Jacksonvil le is for something that would prevent people from coming.
breathtaki ng scenery. Do not go here without your camera. This is a must see even if just passing through. Pack a picnic lunch like we did bc you could spend hours just walking along the... shoreline taking it all in. ♡
It is a beautiful city, I lived there for a short time, I found it to be real exciting and fun. The beach was really breath taking,the
restaurant s were really wonderful and had really good food that e...veryone enjoyed.
