The Jaxon Navarro-Gilmore case is a deplorable example of the medical kidnapping that is happening across the United States. His Maternal Grandmother Jessica Navarro-Gilmore is a loving, nurturing and caring woman. She also has her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Meeting with her, and talking to her, it is clearly evident that she loves her grandson very deeply. She is fully capable of caring for her grandson Jaxon. The Connecticut Department of Children and Families, or CT DCF, is blocking her from doing so. And so Jaxon is currently in the care of the state in foster care.
Jessica already has custody of her granddaughter with the approval of the same agency that is denying her custody of baby Jaxon (CT DCF). Jaxon is being denied the loving and nurturing environment of his biological family. They are using family skeletons as smoke and mirrors to say that the family is not suitable. Jessica openly admits that her daughter has a past history of illicit drug abuse, but had been clean for 2 years. Then the state pushed her and pushed her, to a point where she had a relapse with benzodiazepines. This relapse was not even enough to show in a hair and urine test given by the state. But they still stated that because she admitted to this, she violated her probation. This made a larger case for her daughter not being able to care for her son. And a larger case for baby Jaxon to be sent into the “care” of DCF. But Jessica and her family aren’t seeking for her daughter to be Jaxon’s primary caregiver anyway. They are seeking for Jessica, his grandmother, to have custody. So now they have questioned Jessica’s character despite her recent adoption of her granddaughter.
I ask, what family is without a skeleton or two in their closet? If one has made mistakes in their life, does that mean one should not be allowed to parent a child?
When Jessica adopted her granddaughter from DCF, the same family issues existed as they do now. The agency clearly had no concerns of her parenting skills when they allowed her to adopt her granddaughter. Her granddaughter is healthy, happy, and doing very well in her Grandmother’s care.
So the question is, what is the real issue now? Why has the state kidnapped THIS child?
The reason is largely money. This child brings money to the state. DCF could easily bring his mother to her breaking point knowing her history, and then use that to keep baby Jaxon in state care. And in state care, the child can be given whatever medical care the state deems necessary. He can even be used to experiment on. It is no mistake that all of these medical kidnap victims across the U.S. are medically complex and/or have genetic disorders.
As I said at the start, this is deplorable. We all must do everything we can to stop this from happening, and bring baby Jaxon and all of these medically kidnapped children home to their families. Families must have a right to choice in their health care and the health care of their children.
Thank you Jessica Navarro-Gilmore for your bravery in sharing your story with us and the world. We join hands with you in positive thought and positive energy to bring every child home, including Jaxon.
Take back your health America!
