Helping Out a Desperate Friend
Ah. Hi.

I'm trying really hard to help out a friend.

Actually, well--there's a young woman who sent me a message over Facebook (Facebook is a...community, if you will, for colleges and college students. Students who go to a specific school can join up with their school's network and it can help you keep track of friends who might have gone to other schools).

You can do searches by last name, so likely, at first, she did a search by the last name 'Ridenour'--which is my last name. I offered to try and help.

Her name is Christina Broad, currently she lives in Ohio with her foster parents, Jim and Anne Broad and attends Ohio State. Her birthparents are Brian and Kelley Ridenour.

She was born on a Navy base in Kitsap County in Washington on Feb. 2nd, 1985--was adopted and then sent to Ohio.

This is very, very vague, I know. I'm working on getting more info--she contacted me probably two days ago and she's on the hunt. And I feel for her, so...I'm trying to help. I've lost some really important people to me. So I feel for her. So I'm hunting around at adoption communities. If anyone knows any that I can ask questions as I gain more info--I'd really appreciate it.

Again...I know this is really vague--but if anyone knows anything. Anything, no matter how small the detail--I'd want to know. Anything.

Thank you--I hope this was allowed since I'm asking for someone else.

Dear Group,
Please excuse the misspelling of little katelynn's link
Here is the correct spelling.  I am sorry for any inconvience. Thank you.

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

This is suppose to every little girls life.

What happens when life is not like that?

What if your life is filled with constant abuse by the people who suppose to protect you?

For little Katelynn of Indiana, her life is filled with this from a father, stepmother and father's family; everyone but her the relatives that love her have been deined the ability to see her.

What happens when the police will not stop this?

Than try Child Protection Service, but they will not stop this either.

The next thing to do is go to the court.

What would you do if the Child Protection Services and the court helped the abusers hurt her?

The media might work but they ignore majority of average people.

In this search for help, several politicians ignored or said stop bothering them.

If these people will not help little katelynn than who will?

Will this little girl have to pay the ultimate price for these adults mistakes?

Now, what will you do?!

This is Indiana's Shame and these are Teardrops for Katelynn

Battered Women, Abused Children, and Child Custody: A NATIONAL CRISIS

Petition for Justice for Katelynn:

Don't let these little abused children be abused in silence anymore, please.

Tell someone!

Demand answers!

Demand the children's truth!

Above all break through this silence for theses abused childrens sake!

No adults rights is greater than the right of the child to be safe!
