Mothers Of Lost Children – Indiana

Support for Noncustodial Indiana Moms

Silent Vigil to be Held at The White House on Mother’s Day

with 9 comments


In the somber spirit of the U.S. suffragettes, the Argentine Mothers of the Disappeared, the Turkish Saturday Mothers, the German Rose Street Women, and most recently, the Liberian women who stopped a civil war, we are gathering at the White House to ask our President to meet with our delegates and to help stop the systematic removal and oppression of our children by family court.

Peaceful silent vigil at the White House in Washington DC

Sunday May 9, 2010 from 11:00 am until at least 2:00 pm.

Exact location TBD. We are requesting a permit for Penn Ave and 14th.

We will bring white ‘Mothers of Lost Children’ tshirts, white scarves and handouts. Be sure to bring water bottles, powerbars, suntan lotion, dark glasses, umbrella. Reserve hotels soon (unless you travel by night on a bus and don’t stay in DC).

A few suggestions for posterboard signs to bring with you to hold:

  • Children are taken from safe mothers and forced to live with abusers. Why?
  • I gave birth to a beloved daughter: Her batterer has custody.
  • I gave birth to a cherished son: His identified molester has custody.
  • I gave birth to three precious children: Our violator has custody.
  • I fear judicial retaliation: What country IS this? (if a scarf is over your face)
  • Mr. President, please stop the children’s suffering.

We are compiling one page stories into a booklet. If you would like to contribute factual information and quotes, especially words from your children, send them to us ( You don’t need to give any identifying information. Also, contact us to connect with others in your region who plan to come. Come early or stay later in the week to visit your Congressmembers, if you wish. Just find the name and make an appointment with him/her, or his/her staffer! ;

  2. Thank-you for all your hard work and efforts. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    It takes courage, and alot of risk to leave an abusive relationship; especially when children are involved. It is horrible to discover that Family Court will punish you for reporting abuse, and that any attempt to protect your children will be used against you…while the abuser goes unpunished. While your children are traumatized. They want you to remain silent, to just give up, to be a victim.

    The truth is, we Moms are a powerful force, especially when working together to demand justice, and reform in family court. We never forget our children, and we will never stop fighting for their safety and happiness.

    Keep up the good work!
