    what are you guys talking about?? we were never abducted! Kimberly always knew where to find us, my dad Jose Luis is not a child abducter. Why are you accusing him? because he´s mexican?

    You think Kimberly was a good caring mother? Did she ever told you guys that she went to mexico and bribed police officers to take just Jeremy away? but when the police officers herd Jeremy telliing my dad ¨don´t let this LADY take me away¨ they left? oh no, it´s because Mexicans are always bad!

    Did you know she was in drugs, bet she´s still using! After 23 years without knowing her, Jeremy and I went to OC to meet her, to talk to her… WE WERE THE ONES WHO LOOKED FOR HER!

    And I´m saying all this because I talked with my brother Mike, and my cousin Lucy, with my sister in law Amanda…

    So answer me PLEASE!! when did you went and looked for us?

    Because of Kimberly´s lies, my dad can´t cross the border, but let me tell you this, and please pay attention… WE WILL FIGHT FOR MY DAD´S JUSTICE!

    And if you ever want to talk to me in person, let´s meet with Kimberly, so when she tells her story she can look at me at the eyes and try to lie again…

    “Why are you accusing him? because he´s mexican?”

    Because there was a warrant for his arrest on child abduction charges?

    Warrants are easily obtained on lies says a former child victim of such damaging lies. Particularly if the people you are lying about don’t know to appear in court to defend themselves. A lot of supposed “kidnapping” charges ultimately get dropped when things finally come to a head and the whole story comes out. You shouldn’t judge, because nobody knows better than the kid who had to puy up with all the lies and drama in their life from mean hateful parents who neverr relly loved them and don’t even want them if the person who gots them didn’t first.

    And how should I know to distinguish between the two?

    Should I also do this with every other type of criminal charge, or is parental kidnapping special?

    That´s the issue here. US didn´t make any other ivestigations… And you preffered to believe someone who was in drugs.

    When we went to talk to her, we kindly asked her to drop the charges, and she agreed. She knew she screwed up, and we told her that we were nobody to judge her, she braught this big drama and cried…

    My dad never retained us from seeing her. He always told us that if we wanted to go with her, he´ll make it happen… but do you know why we didn´t want to? Because in my short 25 years, even tho she knew all this time where to find us beause we never moved anyother place, 25 mints from the border, she never took the courage (like a REAL MOTHER would do) to come and fight for us.

    I gave her my phone number and she never called back, that´s what a worried, carring mother would do?

    So come on! Quit that BS!

    And why are you guys taking credit for something you never did?
    you found us? realy? WE CROSS THE BORDER!!!!

    But I´m serious here, we´ll fight for justice, and ALL OF YOU ARE GOING TO PAY EVERY SINGLE TEAR MY DAD DROPPED!

    And realy, let´s meet and have a chat with Kimberly! I know where to find her.

    I have never spoken to your mother. I never claimed to have found you; just that you were found.

    You guys think you are doing something good, but instead of reposting lies, why don´t you take real time to investgate what happened?

    My dad is a good man and he deserves justice
