A child remains missing presumably with her anti-vaccination mother who decided to break the law and risk permanent loss of custody instead of getting her vaccinated.
A Sunrise woman who disappeared with her 2-year-old daughter last month to avoid having the child vaccinated now faces a federal criminal charge, according to court records.
Megan Elizabeth Everett, 22, was last seen on May 6, when Robert Baumann dropped off their daughter, Lilly, in compliance with a shared custody agreement. Lilly was supposed to be returned to Baumann a week later, but Everett never showed up.
According to court records, Everett left a note for Baumann vaguely explaining her actions.
“You are a great dad,” she wrote, with the word “great” underlined. “If I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her, I wouldn’t be doing what’s right. I cannot let a judge tell me how my daughter should be raised. We will miss you. But I had to leave.”
Trouble seemed to start when another man entered the picture who was pro-gun, and an advocate of home-schooling and other alternative ideas that Lilly’s father did not agree with. Everett also was sold on anti-vax ideas. Contrary to Ms. Everett’s statement, a judge CAN and will rule that the child’s best interests are not being met in this case.
She has chosen to live her life as a fugitive and to withhold the child from the rest of her family, proper schooling, and proper medical care. Who’s brainwashed?
From my perspective, courts have rule for the parent who desires proper health care for the child in such cases. As they should.
