More Questions for Nancy Grace About Baby Gabriel Johnson

Nancy Grace’s spotlight on baby Gabriel Johnson still has not posted my three Comments. Not that I mind. It’s not my name that matters. What matters is the safety and life of this baby. What also matters is the pervasive attitude of adoption-is-superior-to-not-married-parents.

Sure, it is easy to point the finger of blame at Elizabeth Johnson, the baby’s mother. She is in trouble. How did she get to the point of taking drastic steps to prevent Gabriel’s father, Logan McQueary, from obtaining custody of his own son? What support systems were not in place for these parents and for their baby?

Even though Nancy Grace may not print my comments, I am. Questions beyond finding Gabriel Johnson alive or dead need to be asked. These questions currently are being banned from online airtime on Nancy Grace’s CNN article, Rpt: Potential Adoptive Couple may take 2nd Poly (January 12, 2010):

To Nancy Grace:

Adoptees and our first parents watch your show. It is biased and discriminatory for you to label Gabriel’s father as “the biological father”. A man is labeled that demeaning term only after his parental rights are terminated upon the Finalization of adoption. Did Tammi and Jack Smith formally adopt the baby? Have they been declared adoptive parents by a Court Order? If not, they have no business talking as if they were the ones violated. Gabriel’s father, Logan McQueary, desrves some respect. His son is missing.

Did Elizabeth Johnson sign Relinquishment papers to formally relinquish her parental rights of Gabriel? Is there an attorney involved in a private adoption arrangement with the Smiths to adopt Gabriel? Or, is there an adoption agency involved? Until the Final Order of Adoption is signed by a Court Judge, no one has rights over baby Gabriel except his mother and his father. Do your homework, Nancy Grace.

There are still more questions. If Elizabeth Johnson signed away her parental rights by signing formal Relinquishment papers, she does not have parental rights. Gabriel may be in the custody of the State in which he was born. He may be a ward of the State. If Elizabeth Johnson did not sign any formal papers of Relinquishment, then any connection to the Smiths is purely social and not legal. The same goes for any couple Elizabeth Johnson says she gave her baby to in a park. Purely an emotional and desperate act on her part. Elizabeth’s text message to the baby boy’s father that she killed their son seems like a revenge tactic to me.

There should have been professional intervention way before Gabriel’s birth. This is so sad.
