can't believe this

i trusted this women to watch my son. she never hurt my son but she hurt me......for the last 6 months she had been lieing and saying my son( dylan ) was her son( shane anthony). thats not really the bad part but she has been telling this to an ex of hers. and her ex thought my son was actually his kid( by her of course)

heres the whole story

she lied and said she couldn't get prego. then she told her ex she got prego and was having triplets. well one miscarried and then in feb of 08 she had the two remaining babies. which she then stated that one of them had died( the lil girl) but the remaining baby ( my son) made it. but then she had to move away to aroniza( we live in kentucky). no contact was made between the 2 ppl for a lil while....well here within the last 6 months they made contact again.....this lady allowed her ex to see my son ( thinking it was his son). ....i have pictures of my son and this guy together...then she told her ex that on june 24th( this yr) that shane ( aka my son dylan) had son is very much alive and well.....

i confronted her and asked her to tell me everything..she said it was all a bunch of crap and not to believe it. because it wasn't true but these other people brought me photos of my son being held my some man i didn't know.. and i have seen txt and email between the 2 ppl. and it was all from her.

i told the lady that i know longer want her in my or my son's life and she would never see my son again and not to call me.........

who knows what would have happened next....would the next time i dropped my son off her house be the last time i saw him. because she would take him and run.

the affection she had to my son was not normal....she really loved him as her own son...and i think she was starting to think he really was.

i just thought i would share my story with everyone and to say becaeful who you trust and if something doesn't feel right remove your child from the problem....

Wow thats crazy. I have heard of women convincing thenselves that they are pregnant. Then they start to have all the pregnancy symtoms (including the tummy), but I have never heard of someone convincing themselves that somones elses kid was theirs (unless the kid was kidnapped). I think you did the right thing by taking him out iof the situation. But if she was a close friend, then I think maybe you should tell someone or help her yourself into getting help. There is something very mentally wrong there.

That is pretty insane. I can't imagine lying about that!! When my son was younger, a friend was watching him for a few hours, and took a walk out to the grocery store with him. A stranger stopped to say how adorable he is, and how he looks just like her. She of course corrected this person, but it'd be just as easy to say, "Oh yes and he has Daddy's eyes!"

I also saw something horrifying on the news today. A woman, 8 months pregnant, has been murdered and the baby was removed and has disappeared. Reading about it further, this is apparently not an unusual case...

report it!!!!! she needs help.... she's creating fantasy's in her head which she believes to an extent are real she has to have a medicle condition... there is no question here, she will do it again if there is no intervention.

Whoooooooaaaaa...... you are soooooooo right in your decision to keep your son from her. Looney Tunes. I can't imagine the betrayal you must feel over this. Well, at least you found out before something even more awful happened.

thats creepy as hell, you should go to the police and speak to a lawyer to see what laws are in place to help you as thats not normal as i love kids they are the rays of sun that warm your soul but to pretend your lil one was hers is disturbing (as if you didnt find out i dread to even think it) but she may try this with another mom. im unsure of how your laws work but surley there must be something to help.

im so happy that no harm came to the lil one but you must be raging, i would be

Thank goodness your son is okay. It is so sad that there really are not many people out there that we can trust our children with. Thankfully as of now I have no need for someone to watch my son but when i need a break my mother watches him, she at least i can trust. This is just so sad and i am so happy you found out when you did. I hope you have no more problems with this woman and that your son remains happy healthy and safe!

omg thats just crazy. thats the second thing ive heard about today that just gives me chills. although, the other one was much worse. when i got home today, my boyfriend told me that he was watching the news and heard about a women who had schizophrenia and decapitated her newborn child, as well as bit its toes off. her excuse was that the infant begged her to. Now that's just a horrifying thing.

I feel so glad that I've never hurt my child. I'm also glad that your son is okay. There are some really messed up people out there.

I definatly would report it because she could do it again and the next time she could take the child and glad that your son is ok

Jessica - posted on 07/29/2009




I would speak to your local authorities and see if you can get a protection order against her, to keep her away from you and your son.

I am so sorry this happened to you and so thankful you found things out in time (that is, before she kidnapped him).
