Kerry And Mark McDougall Had Their Children Removed Yesterday

June 22, 2014

I can’t believe my eyes, readers. I’ve followed this case very closely for years, as you will see if you visit my DisAbility And Parenting section.

Today, I come online to find that Kerry McDougall and husband Mark had their children removed yesterday.

Thanks to Alice: Through The Looking Glass for the details:

A Facebook group was opened on 21 June 2014 in support of Ben and Lochlan, the two sons of Kerry and Mark McDougall whose boys were removed from their care by social services on the same day. A member reports that:

This group is not owned, moderated or otherwise controlled by the family. It is completely independent.

This afternoon, after a five hour wait with police sitting in their living room keeping them under house arrest (without an arrest, of course) Fife Social Services came and took Ben and Lochlan McDougall into their custody. This will be a terrible long fight and both boys will need your help and support for them, and for Kerry and Mark. The boys have been removed. No one knows why. The police turned up at midnight last night with Social Workers who asked if the family were going to return to Ireland (Where Social Workers deemed the family fine). Mark asked if they could go out and visit the grandparents today. Social Worker said they could go wherever they pleased, there was nothing to stop them.

Today, police turned up at approx 1pm. Asked Mark and Kerry to remain in the house until Social Workers arrived. Social workers did not turn up for over five hours. When they did, they took both boys away.

Mark and Kerry, devastated. As ever, no evidence of neglect. None. I’ll update you on the paperwork whilst I can. Please propagate, share, tell everyone. We are legally allowed to speak right now. That may not be the case, come Monday.

    Kerry! A learning disability is nothing to hang your head in shame about. I have a best a friend who has a very severe learning disability . You are a very strong person to go thru what you did. It’s never too late to get help for your difficulties? There are professionals who specialize in helping people learn to overcome it. They would put their heads together and do a plan matched with strengths,talents, impairments and match them with the areas Mark is very good at. They would come up with many unique and fun strategies and ideas for Mark to help you overcome your learning disability with hard work. I am so happy you met someone who had no problems with accepting your disability. My friend was told by a worker “Rots of ruck and said she should out with someone who was developmentally disabled. The case manager said that she needed good role models with similar difficulties like hers. She has even friends without disabilities who really helped her advance. Mark I have so much respect for beca used he loves just the way you are.
