The couple from American Fork, Utah, Jed and Cally Nielson, who we posted about earlier who were ordered to give this baby back to his natural father are refusing to give him back! If you remember, they have a court order from Idaho to give this child back. It appears court orders from another state are meaningless to the LDS Family Services, the Nielsons and their attorneys.
This is no lie, the Nielsons are refusing to hand this precious baby over, DEFYING A COURT ORDER and have hired two attorneys, one in Idaho and Larry S. Jenkins in Utah to represent them. This is the same couple who asked for funds stating they have exhausted all their money, yet they can retain these high powered lawyers now? Wonder who ’s footing the bill, is it the Mormon Church?
So is the LDS Family Services and Larry Jenkins counciling the Nielsons to NOT hand the baby over and defy a court order? OMG, how arrogant!!
Here’s a couple of articles about this currently in the news.
This first article is in the Deseret Morning News, a Mormon owned newspaper. Here’s some quotes from that article:
“During a court hearing last week, an Idaho judge gave the birth father, Matt Tenneson, 20, of Coeur d’Alene, temporary primary custody of the 5 1/2-month-old baby.
But Jed and Callie Nielson, who have had the baby since June, say they won’t give baby Harvey back without a legal fight. In fact, they say they are thinking optimistically and have been buying Christmas presents for the baby.”
“Jenkins said he is reviewing the case and working on strategy.
“It’s early in the game,” he said.”
“Our goal is to keep the the little boy with the Nielsons.”
The second article is from the Coeur d’Alene Press.
I’m praying Gods justice prevails here (which it will), and I’m standing on these scriptures:
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
He who leads the upright along an evil path will fall into his own trap, but the blameless will receive a good inheritance.
For those who believe in the power of prayer, please pray for justice to prevail quickly in this case and this adorable child goes back to his natural father and the grandparents who are fighting for him. What is happening is WRONG! We’ll be posting people you can write if you choose to stand by the Tennisons. Look for this in a future posting. God bless you all!
