Fight for Justice for Kodi and Ryah

This petition had 816 supporters

On April 8, 2010, Kodi was unable to handle the pain of losing her 9 month old daughter to the Washington family court system, and took her own life. During her custody proceeding, she was harassed, threatened, and stalked, and her daughter was removed from her care.

The Williamsburg, Virginia based American Judges Association research concludes that in 70% of all contested custody cases, the abuser is successful in proving that the victimized parent is unfit, and should not be allowed custody.

This happens, all too frequently (link for further reading provided below). Coincidentally, on Mother's Day 2010, almost exactly one month after Kodi's death, a march of hundreds of protective mothers held a silent vigil on the steps of the White House to protest the broken family court system.  Kodi may be gone from us, but she is never forgotten, and her cause continues. Please sign the petition below to prevent appointed government officials from stealing children from their protective parents, and giving Kodi the opportunity at justice she was never allowed.
