In the spring of 2013, Baby Dezirae Sheldon was brought to the emergency room by her mother, Sandra Eastman. It was found by the medical staff that then 11 month old Dezirae was suffering from TWO broken legs, one that was 5 to 7 days old, and the other a few weeks old. The mothers story did not coincide with what the medical professionals had found, and Dezirae was removed from the home and placed in a home where she had loving parents and an older brother to play with. A few months ago Dezirae was returned to her mother. She turned two years old on Tuesday, February 18th 2014. and on Wesnesday, February 19th, 2014 Dezirae was rushed to the hospital with trauma to her head. Her heart stopped on the way to the hospital, but she was able to be revived. Dezirae was found by medical professionals to have head trauma significant to that of being dropped off of a three story roof. She was transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, where she was pronounced brain dead. Dezirae has donated her organs to help save other children's lives, but she never should have had her life so VIOLENTLY ripped from her. She never had a voice, she was never able to get away from her abusers or defend and protect herself. Please sign this petition to show awareness for child abuse, let Dezirae save other children's lives. Don't let another abuser allow the chance to harm, or worse, MURDER their children. Show Vermont that something needs to be done, laws need to be changed. BE DEZIRAE'S VOICE THAT THE STATE OF VERMONT FAILED TO BE.
