Mothers Of Lost Children – Indiana

Support for Noncustodial Indiana Moms

About Us: Mothers Of Lost Children – Indiana

with 5 comments

Together, we can work to change the laws that allow the courts to take away all rights to children from good parents.  There are a lot of us out there…with numbers that could make a difference to facilitate change that will stop horrible decisions from coming out of our courts.  We can support each other through our court hearings to try to gain additional access and rights to our children.  We can support each other as we try to continue to be good mothers to our children.

Mothers of Lost Children is a group patterned after the Argentine Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo (also known as Mothers of the Disappeared) who became human rights activists after their adult children were abducted by the government, tortured, and in some cases killed. Wearing white scarves, they gather every Thursday afternoon for a half hour walk around the plaza.

  2. my name is mary and i have five children,micheal 13, lindsey 9, jessica 7, and the twins abbi and taylor3. i have all my children except jessica from my third marriage.. i havent been with her in two and half years..her father took her from me at age four and half. and before this he had barely no contact with jessica her whole life, so much to the fact that i had moved on with my life with my husband now and had twins, he didnt even know..but when he finially did come around on one of his yearly visits sometimes it would be longer.he realized i had someone else and twins he wasnt happy.. so then he decided he wanted to start getting jessica every other weekend, well he did just that for about a month then showed up at my home drunk and 2 hours late in a screaming rage at my husband whom he didnt know. he started hitting my husband and threw his shoulder outta place i called the cops and they didnt even take him to jail, needless to say i didnt let jessica leave with him and his girlfriend amy that night, she was scared and didnt want to go.. well two months went by and we hadnt heard from him so i just figured he was following his normal ways and forgetting about jessica and would see him in a year or so. my husband and i moved to another state over three hours away. well my mom called me one day and said that something came to her house for me and she signed for it, come to find out it was a court date for custody of jessica, an since i wasnt served with those papers and my mom was when i didnt show up for court they took it as i didnt care and gave him custody, still i had no clue, and by law i was supposed to be served for that order to be valid. until one day about a year and a half later a sherrif showed up at my door and took jessica away from me screaming and reaching her arms out for me so helpless an there wasnt a thing for me to do except fall to my knees in pain for my daughter and pray for god to let this just be a nightmare and please wake me up.. but that wasnt the case, he got her and left with my babygirl..two weeks later we had a court hearing where i lived i had to spend 3thousand dollars on an attorney just for the judge to say it was out of his juristiction and we would have to go back to the state where he lives and file there. needless to say my husabnd and i split and i was caring for my kids alone and living back with my parents. so i havent been able to afford an attorney, and they let me have no contact with her at all and i live only 8 miles from them. so i am now working trying to get my own home for the kids and i and try to work on seeing my babygirl agin…from mutal ppl we knew they say she took a while to ajust to her new life with strangers but she looks just like me they say….thats just the short version of my story, any advice would be greatly appericated!

  3. Unfortunately you will have to see if you can secure an attorney somehow in your location dear. Have you spoken to the local bar association where you are at? How you looked at online resources for the court in your location. You may be able to get sample forms of what to file to get things started again. Look for a local noncustodial moms group to help you (or are you in Indianapolis?…if you are, join our local online group for more info).

  5. My heart goes out to you. My soon to be ex husband legally kidnapped my children. Its a huge mess and Will jump through any hoops to allow people to see the monster he is. I am working on myself to get a house and working on my education. Family Law. I want to help other women and men that have this done to them. If you are interested in helping me changing things around with the laws,I would like ideas and real solid ways to do things. Its disguising what people are allowed to do. Contact me at
