The Swapped Child 3

scan0004scan0006scan0007scan0008In her letter to Oprah Winfrey, Patrice Hanson says she feared her brutal husband would kill my daughter if he found out the truth. Why didn’t Patrice give me the chance to save my child, like I saved her two sons from this demon for two months?

“When I found myself pregnant, I felt the father could have been
either John’s or my husband’s, but I had to convince the husband
that it was his baby or life would have been unbearable and the
chances of my baby’s survival would have been slim. I knew this baby
was meant to be, and be with me, and that was important. From the
moment she was born, I could see that she looked like John, but it
was the husband’s name that went on the birth certificate.”

The answer is, Patrice loved Randal – to death – and was already doing everything she could do to CHANGE HIM. She concluded if she could convince Delpaino Heather was his child, then he would stop being cruel to her two sons born of two fathers. When Randall could not get Patrice pregnant, he felt even more impotent and used.

After Patrice disappeared my daughter saying I was threatening, she called up my sister, Vicki, and told her she and Delpiano’s daughter wanted to have a relationship with my sister, her son, and other members of my family I was at odds with, and may never see again. Patrice and Heather were counting on it, and had to take action, soon, before Tom Snyder completed Rosamond’s biography they wanted to be in.

In my autobiography I suggest the Art World comes to my rescue. There was a child custody battle going on when my famous sister died, and it appears my family took Garth Benton’s side. For my family to have CAPTURED my minor daughter, after enticing her with Fame and Money, must have been seen as a real victory, especially to my brother Mark Presco, the brutal Neo-Nazi who was furious with Christine because she filed Bankruptcy and would not be paying back the $3,000 dollars he leant her – any time soon. When Christine drowned, he was right there, lurking in the background, making sure he got his without anyone knowing, because he is a Tax Evader.

“Life imitates art.” I posted ‘Kidnapped’ on Yahoogroups in January 2006. The movie ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ came out a month later. I did not see it until 2010.

Above is a photo of me with my arm around my daughter and he best friend, Leah, whom Heather wanted me to adobt and have live with me because her mother did not want her dating a grown man.Heather always believed she was too good for me. This is because her mother lived through her Creation, made my daughter the wreteched Mirror of Her Own Vanity.

Some folks have told me I look like Walt Dizney, and my Rose Study is bigger then Dizneyland. But, this might be my vanity talking. However, I am not even allowed to be vain – only dangerous crazy! And I let go a merry laugh, for my disqualification in regards to everything – is the story!

The theme of the swapped child is common among medieval literature and reflects concern over infants afflicted by as-then unknown diseases, disorders, or developmental disabilities.

A human child might be taken due to many factors: to act as a servant, the love of a human child, or malice.[1] Most often it was thought that fairies exchanged the children. Some Norwegian tales tell that the change was made to prevent inbreeding: to give trolls and humans new blood, humans were given children with enormous strength as a reward. In some rare cases, the very elderly of the Fairy people would be exchanged in the place of a human baby, and then the old fairy could live in comfort, being coddled by its human parents.[2] Simple charms, such as an inverted coat or open iron scissors left where the child sleeps, were thought to ward them off; other measures included a constant watch over the child.[3]

Perhaps the changeling myths of this time period reflect the feudal political structure, where inheritance is the only real way to gain personal or political power. A monarch gave the throne to his first surviving son at his own death. When there was any doubt to the legitimacy of the child, the power of the very state could be called into question and a fight for political power could arise. This inherent fear of war caused by political strife could have been mythologized.

It was a sixteen year old Heather who suggested we could get our
Miracle on the Oprah Winfrey show. I regret considering that
possibility as it was perhaps another case of using a child to get
the needs of a parent met. I did not know how much I was being used
by both mother and daughter who were working `Our Miracle’ before I
lay eyes on this daughter who I believed was a God-send, she sent to
relieve the loneliness I felt for the last seven years when I lost
my family due to backing Shannon in the fight over her mother’s
legacy. Shannon had disappeared, and I was not told my father was
dead, or dying, or that my mother was dying. My younger sister saw
to that, because I dare oppose her hidden agendas that Shannon’s
attorney titled “fraud”. I also could not buy the three different
versions of what her son Shamus was doing when that rogue-wave

Here is the first part of the letter Patrice authored to
send Oprah. She is aware that seven years have gone by since my
father’s death, Vicki yet to show me a copy of his Trust I was in,
she not informing me until he was four years dead as she was
required to do by law. Within months of this letter there will be
another which I will show you, wherein Heather is disappeared from
my life, only to reappear three years later at Vicki’s house on
Christmas Day. She and Patrice ruthlessly used the riff and wounds
in my family to ingratiate themselves. Our Miracle was now
transferred over to the birth of Heather’s baby that she planned to
name Lillian-Rose after my mother who I was not given an opportunity
to say goodbye to.

I met Patrice in a bar, and did not see a wedding ring. When she
woke in my bed in the mornging she made a plea for me to rescue her
and her two sons, ages five and thirteen, from a violent father.
Knowing what that is like, I did not think twice before becoming a
Hero in these sons eyes.

Patrice used me a Sucker then, and came back with another child for
me care for that she will bid to betray me. I warned my family there
was fraud here, and they helped Patrice Kidnap this Miracle child.

Hi John;

Here’s what I wrote for Oprah. Of course since I wrote it, it is
from my point of view. I tried to stick to the miracle and the story
behind it. I didn’t get into any of the information about your
family and the problems with the will and all that. I feel if we can
get on the show and tell our story, there will be an abundance of
support for freeing up that which is rightfully yours or Heather’s

So, see what you think and let me know if it is OK as is, or if
there is something else that needs to be included or eliminated.

Take care! Love you!

On March 22 this year, my 16 year old daughter and her
father met each other for the time. The story of their separation
and how they came to be united is truly a miracle of healing and a
story that is an inspiration to others. I’ve noticed that when I
share this story, people are so moved that they experience chills in
their bodies and often tears come to their eyes.

17 years ago, I was married to an abusive man who was a con
artist, psychopathic antisocial personality who spent one year in
prison while we were together. Later I realized that my response to
this husband was typical of “women who love too much” and I had to
work hard on myself to change my situation. That in itself is a long
story, but suffice it to say, it was very confusing and difficult
marriage that was damaging to myself and my two sons who were 10 and
17 at the time. During that time I met John who lived around the
corner and who showed me kindness and love. We were involved with
each other for about 2 months and I actually moved in with him
attempting to leave behind the craziness of life with my husband.
This was not a very good plan because the husband became even more
aggressive and angry waiting outside threatening John with a
baseball bat. Consequently, I returned home realizing that I had to
find a safer way to release myself from this relationship. I didn’t
see John again until recently, almost 17 years later.

When I found myself pregnant, I felt the father could have been
either John’s or my husband’s, but I had to convince the husband
that it was his baby or life would have been unbearable and the
chances of my baby’s survival would have been slim. I knew this baby
was meant to be, and be with me, and that was important. From there
moment she was born, I could see that she looked like John, but it
was the husband’s name that went on the birth certificate.”

What happens when visitation rights are frustrated?
Frustration of visitation occurs when the custodial parent takes
steps to prevent the non-custodial parent from having contact with
the child. This could be an innocent isolated occurrence, such as
taking a child to a doctor to receive medical attention at the time
the non-custodial parent is to arrive at the residence to pick-up
the child for a scheduled visit. On the other end of the spectrum,
when one parent “disappears” with the child, this could be a
kidnapping or abduction which would result in criminal prosecution.

PARENTAL KIDNAPPING – 565.153 – (1988) –

In the absence of a court order determining rights of custody or
visitation to a child, a person having a right of custody of the
child commits the crime of parental kidnapping if he removes, takes,
detains, conceals, or entices away that child within or without the
state, without good cause, and with the intent to deprive the
custody right of another person or a public agency also having a
custody right to the child.

“Snow White” is a Bavarian fairy tale known across much of Europe. The best known is the Bavarian version collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 as German: Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (or Dwarves). The Bavarian version features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the seven dwarfs, who were first given individual names in the Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1912) and then given different names in Walt Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Grimm story, which is commonly referred to as “Snow White”, should not be confused with the story of “Snow White and Rose Red”, another fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm (in German “Schneeweißchen”, rather than “Schneewittchen”).

Pan’s Labyrinth (Spanish: El laberinto del fauno, “The Faun’s Labyrinth”) is a 2006 Mexican dark fantasy film[3][4] written and directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. It was produced and distributed by the Mexican film company Esperanto Films.

Pan’s Labyrinth takes place in Spain in May–June 1944, five years after the Spanish Civil War, during the early Francoist period. The narrative of the film interweaves this real world with a fantasy world centered around an overgrown abandoned labyrinth and a mysterious faun creature, with which the main character, Ofelia, interacts. Ofelia’s stepfather, the Falangist Captain Vidal, hunts the Spanish Maquis who fight against the Francoist regime in the region, while Ofelia’s pregnant mother grows increasingly ill. Ofelia meets several strange and magical creatures who become central to her story, leading her through the trials of the old labyrinth garden. The film employs make-up, animatronics and CGI effects to bring life to its creatures.

Del Toro stated that he considers the story to be a parable, influenced by fairy tales, and that it addresses and continues themes related to his earlier film The Devil’s Backbone (2001),[4] to which Pan’s Labyrinth is a spiritual successor, according to del Toro in his director’s commentary on the DVD. The original Spanish title refers to the fauns of Roman mythology, while the English, German, and French titles refer specifically to the faun-like Greek character Pan. However, del Toro has stated that the faun in the film is not Pan.[4]

The film premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. It was released in the United Kingdom on November 24, 2006. In the United States and Canada, the film was given a limited release on December 29, 2006, with a wide release on January 19, 2007.[5] Pan’s Labyrinth has won numerous international awards, including three Academy Awards, three BAFTA Awards including Best Film Not in the English Language, the Ariel Award for Best Picture, the Saturn Awards for Best International Film and Best Performance by a Younger Actor for Ivana Baquero and the 2007 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form.

[edit] PlotIn a fairy tale, Princess Moanna, whose father is the king of the underworld, becomes curious about the world above. When she goes to the surface, the sunlight blinds her and erases her memory. She becomes very ill and eventually dies. The king believes that her spirit will come back to the underworld someday.

In post-Civil War Spain in 1944 (after Francisco Franco has come into power) Ofelia, a young girl who loves fairy tales, travels with her pregnant mother Carmen to meet Captain Vidal, her new stepfather and father of Carmen’s unborn child. Vidal, the son of a famed commander who died in Morocco, believes strongly in falangism and was assigned to root out any anti-Franco rebels.

Ofelia discovers a large insect resembling a stick insect which she believes to be a fairy. It follows her to the mill where Vidal is stationed and leads Ofelia into an ancient labyrinth nearby. Before Ofelia can enter, she is stopped by Mercedes, one of Vidal’s maids who is spying for the rebels. That night, the insect appears in Ofelia’s bedroom, where it changes into a fairy and leads her through the labyrinth. There, she meets the faun, who believes her to be Princess Moanna and gives her three tasks to complete before the full moon to ensure that her “essence is intact”. Meanwhile, Vidal’s cruel and sociopathic nature is revealed when he brutally murders two individuals who had been detained on suspicion of being rebel allies and who may merely have been farmers.

Ofelia completes the first task of retrieving a key from the belly of a giant toad, but she becomes worried about her mother whose condition is worsening. The faun gives Ofelia a mandrake root, which instantly begins to cure her mother’s illness.

Accompanied by three fairy guides, Ofelia then completes the second task of retrieving an ornate dagger from the lair of the Pale Man, a child-eating monster who sits silently in front of a large feast. Although she was gravely warned not to consume anything, she eats two grapes, awakening him. He eats two of the fairies and chases her, but she manages to escape. Infuriated at her disobedience, the faun refuses to give her the third task.

Meanwhile, Vidal becomes increasingly vicious, torturing a captured rebel and then killing the doctor — also a rebel sympathizer — who euthanized the tortured prisoner to stop his pain. Vidal catches Ofelia tending to the mandrake root, and Carmen throws it into the fireplace, where it then begins to writhe and scream in agony. Instantly, Carmen develops painful contractions and dies giving birth to a son. Vidal discovers that Mercedes is a spy, and he captures her and Ofelia as they attempt to escape. Ofelia is locked in her bedroom, and Mercedes is taken to be tortured; however, she frees herself, badly injures Vidal and flees into the woods, where the rebels rescue her.

The faun returns to Ofelia and gives her one more chance to prove herself. He tells her to take her baby brother into the labyrinth. Ofelia steals the baby after sedating Vidal; although disoriented, Vidal continues to chase her through the labyrinth while the rebels attack the mill. The faun tells Ofelia that the portal to the underworld will open only with an innocent’s blood, so he needs a drop of her brother’s blood. Ofelia refuses to harm her brother, and eventually Vidal finds her, seemingly talking to herself as the faun is not visible through his eyes. The faun leaves Ofelia to her choice, and Vidal takes the baby away from her, shooting her immediately after.

When he leaves the labyrinth, the rebels and Mercedes are waiting for him. Knowing that he will die, he calmly hands Mercedes the baby. Vidal takes out his watch and tells Mercedes to tell his son the exact time of his father’s death. Mercedes interrupts, telling him that his son will never even know his name. Pedro, one of the rebels and Mercedes’ brother, draws his pistol and shoots Vidal in the face, killing him.

As Mercedes enters the labyrinth and comforts the dying girl, drops of Ofelia’s blood spill onto the altar that is supposed to lead her into the underworld. Ofelia is reunited with the king and queen of the underworld. The faun is present too, and the king reveals to her that, by shedding her own blood instead of the blood of an innocent, she has completed the final task and proven herself to be Princess Moanna. In the mortal world, Ofelia dies and Mercedes mourns her death. In an epilogue, a narration dictates that Princess Moanna ruled the underworld with a just and kind heart, but left behind “small traces of her time on earth, visible only to those who know where to look”.

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    When Leah and Heather came up to visit me on the train, Leah fipped out when I caught her doing a drug deal. She flew off in a fit of jealousy that it was working so well between Heather and I. Then she bught up the idea that I would adopt her and have her Man Lover come to live with us, while Heather carried on with Ryan. I would give up my bed and bedroom so they can fornicate while I work on my stupid genealogy books. When they have a child it would be put in my arms after the Man Dude splits the scene. I would have to practice Tough Love like Leah’s mother was about to lock her out again. I was the solution. If I was in contact with Cean I would dropped Leah off at his door.
