Another Teen, 17 years old, ends life

17 Year-Old Ends Life; Walks in Front of Train 

Suicide Note: “No Point in Living” 

Depressed from Being Taken from Loving Mom – Given to Father 

Judge Ignores Mom’s Pleas for Help; Admits Father Abusive and Drug User; Still Switches Custody; Now Another Child Dead 

“The judge after he gave my ex custody said to him, “There were reports of abuse and drugs in the past.  Let’s not have any more of that.”

“Joshua was the sweetest boy.  Everyone at the memorial just kept telling stories about how nice and helpful he was.  I had taught my children to show love to all and always be ready to help someone.  And that was Josh. He was also incredibly smart. But people will remember his kindnesses much more.”  –  Protective Mom Becky 

“Josh was getting counseling to help him to learn to cope with his depression. That had just started when I lost custody. “

“For the last four years his dad did nothing for him to get him counseling.  My boy was hurting too bad for too long and there was no one who would or could step in and get him treatment.  I knew all along that he was depressed.  I had tried to get him help. “

“The judge after he gave my ex custody said to him, “There were reports of abuse and drugs in the past.  Let’s not have any more of that.”  

“But I actually was deemed to be ‘unfit’  because of homeschooling.”  –  PM Becky 

This is just one more casualty in the war on women and children in Family Courts.

  1. I am so sorry PM Becky, so so sorry, I am sending much love to you in your sorrow. xxx
    Is there any humanity in the family courts in the US?
    So many cases of abusive parents, mainly fathers getting custody of vulnerable children, destroying their lives, something has to change.
    The words of those who knew him say it all, the kindness of a beautiful boy shone through for all to see. Much love xxx
