that sure seems like her when i saw the 30 min pic up
I also saw the photo with her face when it was up briefly. This looks just like her with lighter hair. How ironic "See Through Me"...yep, we do now.
Rachael just twittered that she spoke to B on the phone this afternoon...
Found this googling (see below). Don't want to post the site it came from to protect the blogger. But it looks like she herself was campaigning for support, and acting as though it was not her "child." This whole situation is such an awful betrayal of all those who cared for "April Rose."rebekaah said... Love the field of blue flowers and your little ones running about !Please if you can...Please pray for this young Christian mother struggling with a painful and difficult medical decision for her unborn daughter.http://www.littleoneapril.blogspot.com/
yeah i saw that... and that "b" has no idea what's going on. maybe she did have a baby and is just a psycho who put up a picture of a doll? i don't know why i'm still hoping it's not ALL a lie!how did you come up with this website nobody?
Her hair is a bit darker in the other pics on her site! That is her for sure!
The whole story is full of holes! Somebody actually emailed me the link to her site and pics.
i'm almost positive ethis is a scam but...if that IS her, what does it prove? All it's done is uncovered her name and occupation. Why can't she be an artist and be pregnant too?
what does she mean she has no idea what is going on? the baby-daddy deleted her entire blog, and she has no idea what's going on? All of their sponsors and left their site (or are planning to)
It looks like the same girl from the due date shoot! I am so upset.It isn't fair that so many of us have lost baby's and don't get the time of day and some one can make up a story and capture the world!!
She can be whatever she wants and pregnant too! But she lied to and scammed people.
i just hope this IS the right person
cause the picture was of a doll! that's what this is all about! someone out there has to have a copy of the picture "b" leaked of herself that one day!
or that artist is going to be in a world of hurt
No. Because the whole thing is a scam! People were hurt by her.
you're right about the doll, but the thing is- what is the point in exposing this artist? How do they know it's her? What if we're wrong? it could ruin this person's career
It does seem like it's her. I just saw Raechel's twitter update ( http://twitter.com/giftofbreath ). I am SO confused. I guess I'm still hoping the whole thing is just one big miscommunication or something... (I know, that seems rather far-fetched to say the least!
The info on her site matches the location of the PO box. Her college info matches up too.
me to jennifer. but it's getting hard to believe isn't it? crap
ahh i see. thanks nobody.
Dena0308 - yes, it is getting VERY hard to believe!
Dena, I didn't want to post it, but since it has already been posted elsewhere I did. I am sure it is her! Beccah Rose ? Same location, same age? Not just a coincidence. Not to mention her pics are the same.
ok newest twitter from rachael - she's on the phone with b
I have nothing to gain or lose here. All I know is that this person has scammed people in to believing that a sick baby was born and played on peoples sympathies. I dont have to leave the pic up. Makes no difference to me!
dont worry about it nobody, as you said, you were not the first to post it. it's just public knowledge really isn't it...if it's the same address, that's got to be her. that could have been found out from a phonebook right? don't worry!
We all saw it anyways. There it is gone. I am watching the twitter page for updates now.
lets see what happens guys!! she has known "whats going on" since 2:30...yet we have heard NOTHING. All she would have to do is write a short post put up a new picture. when reachel talked to her earlier "april" was in another room so supposedly she is still alive. yet we have heard NOTHING!!
in the far fetched world that this all WAS true...isn't it a bit wrong to just leave all the readers hangning like this? I mean it's pitiful really...people all over the world are desperately waiting for an update"D" said he'd update, but he hasn't once
She could post all the new pics she wants. I can go find all sorts of baby pics that I find on line too! Doesn't mean I gave birth a day ago does it? Besides good luck finding ones that match the ones she already posted!
no matter how you look at it it is wrong. we were scammed one way or another!! i want to know how she is going to explain this. yesterday they were updating every 10min then nothing!!
Have you guys researched trisomy 13? This story just can't be true! I read about it for a while and there is just no way.
Rachel is updating the blog now.
This comment has been removed by the author.
she more the likely will say she used the doll for her privacy blah blah blah!
NOOOOOO their making more money off me I keep reloading the page!!
Funny how B wouldn't know of all this! Her whole blog is practically gone! This is too much! Rachel is either just really gullible or in on the scam. I am sorry to say it too! I wanted so badly for her to be an innocent in all this! How could she believe all these lies?
Melissa, I am doing it too! ugh!
Just as a test, I went to the site, looked at the site meter, clicked refresh, looked at the site meter...she got at least 30 visitors in that moment. Ugh. I'd love to see all this money go to a charity.
Must be a really long update!
Thats a great idea Kiki. I really think this is about blog traffic for her. Thats the only thing that makes sense. I have a feeling they are going to back pedal about the photos somehow to keep it going.
Oh and another thing is that her name was in the URL for the header on her page that was drawn by her! That is her I am positive of that!
It appears, if you click on the "details, details, details," link on the page for "See Through Me," that the artist is pro-life. I'll bet it's all a stunt to "prove" that women who are given a pre-birth diagnosis that is incompatible with life shouldn't terminate, because after all, God saved April... Until the heat got turned on, that is.I've wondered for a long time if the story of April Rose was fake. It just didn't ring true to me, she didn't sound genuine. I was the one she got shrill with when I suggested that homebirth might get her in trouble with the law...And all of the various voices throughout the past couple days - her "friends" that have posted, have "sounded" just like her. If it all gets sorted out, and it turns out to be real, and a huge misunderstanding, then I will apologize... But I really want to know the truth.
Post is up! I don't know what to think...
Well that was a pretty vague update huh?
That wasn't much of an update they gave.
Well I just hope that they don't say the baby passed away to get out of all of this!
fishy fishy fishy. I dont know what to think exacxtly, but this is just getting weirder.
Besides on twitter she said B knew nothing of what was going on through the internet. Not what her update says! It doesn't add up to me at all!
Anyway, I still stick to my belief that Raechel, at least, is innocent. I don't know WHAT is going on, but I definitely think she is innocent.
Then again, I must admit I am rather gullible!
I hope so! She seems like a nice person and her hubby does too , but i am having a little doubt at this point. Just a little.
now they go to the hospital?That's why they didn't update? I think she is trying to cover her butt with Raechel and they are going to say she passed away but to keep it going and getting hits they will drag it out. If it is really I will shit flying Monkeys!!Really I will!
The ruffles pants ad is gone! :)
I just created my own blog about reborns, and OOAKs
that really was quite vague!!
LOL, Melissa! I hope you will blog about the experience! BTW, I'm right with you. The biggest question remains unaddressed. The resemblance of the photos posted to the reborn doll. Still hoping it's not a scam, but just lost a little more hope with that post.
I will!! and it will be funny with pictures and all!!
They left the the comments open on the last update. Still so many believers!
Melissa, you crack me up!I would think that many of these "believers" are just people who read D's post and took it at face value. They haven't seen the comparison pics or even know about them. I admit, I was mortified this morning when I saw that they had received the photoshopped photos. That's just awful. But I became curious, and here I am.
yeah no of the comments is from me It says still praying but so confused right now. Either I am going to pray for this Psycho to find what they are looking for or pray for a Baby who looks just like a doll I have no idea who to pray for??
I just read a post on Gibsontwins blog that Beccah has copied artwork on her site too! The original artist is being contacted ASAP! Even copied his quotes!
You know being a stay at home Mom, this has become the most exciting thing to me in months. It's better than a soap opera (which I don't watch). I was so hurt but the more stuff comes out, the more insane it gets. I was just wondering if her artwork is real....now I hear this....sheesh, what next. I think I'm healed from the pain, this is just pathetic!
hopefully flying monkeys come next because it would mean I wasn't praying for a Doll all these months!!
haha melissa you are funny!! :)
You have to have fun when you are going through so much crap then people load more crap on you! I am rooting for those Flying Monkeys though! It would be a lot better then being dupped by an dumb ass that thinks it's cool to crap out a doll and call it a miracle! Has any one contacted NLMDTS??I really am not making light of this it hurts me a lot I cried for her I begged for there baby's life to be spared like I begged for my own daughters! Why are people so cruel and stupid??
I am pretty sure she wont be adding me as a friend anytime soon!
Is the Facebook photo pretty similar to "B"?
Yes. I will be posting he original pic posted by her on her blog in a minute. The faces are identical! Look at the jawline!
Rebecca, it looks like the "D" is not in her household, just a relative.
Oh and the Facebook photo is most definitely "B"...I saw her photo when she briefly put it up. No doubt in my mind.
I was WAAAAY off. It is just a relative. Not our "D."
Nobody, you said, "Besides on twitter she said B knew nothing of what was going on through the internet. Not what her update says! It doesn't add up to me at all!"What do you mean? All I saw on the update was that Rachael said, "I will continue to update as B asks me to. I have told her about all of the wonderful encouragement you all are sending her way. She is grateful for that, so thank you." That says that Rachael told her people are supporting her (hopefully leaving out any of the criticism, if the story is in some way true).Also, I looked into the artwork thing, looking at the work of both artists, and I really don't think the work is copied.
I can't say anything about the artwork. I didnt see a post with the other artists name on it. I would like to though. All I said was that it was posted elsewhere.
Ticks me off that Raechel's friend via Twitter (Girly923) named Kaira is on Rufflebutts' blog threatening to not buy anything from her and that she is going to post what terrible ethics she has because she pulled her ad. This is insanity! Please someone tell me they are two different people. Are they going this far....someone prove me wrong....please!
This is so sad to me. I know this story is fake. I know the pics are fake. I can't fathom why somebody would hurt so many people!
Now people's businesses are being threatened! Why? This is so awful! Why are these people doing this?
I am trying to prove myself wrong here. But what is strange about Kaira is that there are two different blogs but amazingly enough both women have 4 boys and husbands named Steve. Is that a coincidence?
One more thing.....we haven't had an update on the blog for a super long time today and there are rumors of fraud yet an update is finally posted and there are only 81 comments (at this moment) in the last 2 hours? Either people are afraid or there are a lot of "hateful" comments not being posted. I thought there would be an outpouring of comments praying for April and her family. I did give thanks for the update and mentioned I was glad that after a day they finally went to the hospital.
Nobody, I would guess that the reason the RuffleButt woman has that chick threatening to tell everyone that she's awful is because Raechel has been duped and therefore she can't believe that anyone is lying to her & using her, so she's got her friends defending "B" on her behalf. She's in deep denial.This is what I want ~ I want the name of the hospital that "B" is at and I want someone to call her at the hospital to verify that she's a patient there on the maternity floor.IF this is legitimate, then all "B" and "D" or even Raechel needs to do is identify the hospital where "B" is currently admitted. If a person called the hospital and asked for "B"'s room and got transferred, you'd know that she at least had a baby. But saying that someone is at the hospital doesn't mean jack squat ~ there was a woman who faked having cystic fibrosis and was supposedly in the hospital for MONTHS and was calling people who vouch that they heard hospital machine noises... but it was not real.What is Raechel's blog address? I'll post to her that instead of waiting for "B" to call her, she should find out the name of the hospital and call "B", herself. If it's legit, she should be eager to share the information with people so they can verify it for themselves and then get the word out that yes, it's a real story... and then people could go back to praying for them.I don't think that is what would happen, though.I know that when I posted on a messageboard that my twins were having brain surgery on the same day, people thought I was totally lying. Giving the name of their neurosurgeon, the name and phone number of the hospital for anyone who wanted to verify their admittance and then posting pictures from throughout the hospitalization proved to everyone that yeah, I was telling the truth. Does it suck that sometimes people doubt honest stories? Yes. But it's the internet... you have to know that if you talk about having a child with a problem, there will invariably be those who doubt your honesty & you may have to prove yourself to be legitimate.If "D" & "B" are legit, all they have to do is prove it and people will fall over themselves apologizing and supporting them from here on out. Their actions of deleting and essentially running away do nothing to convince doubters of their authenticity.
Yeah, I want to send a gift to the hospital just like people did for MckMama. She was always getting packages and thanking people. Is there harm in sending a gift for "April". They won't reveal that because they are private people. We are to send everything to a P.O. Box.
I know where B lives. i wonder how many major hospitals are nearby? I will not post anybody's personal info, but I wonder if I could figure out the hospital?
Is there a hospital in the city where the PO box is, Oak Lawn? Has this been established?
Nobody - that sounds like a good idea. Remember "B" said the hospital was only a short drive away? (let's hope she was telling the truth about THAT at least, who knows!!). If that is indeed the case, you should be able to mapquest from her house to them to figure which one is the closest...
There it is...Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL.
I just commented asking where to send gifts like we all did for MckMama. I am pretty sure neither my comment will not get posted nor a hosptial name will be given by Raechel, B or D or Girly923 or Kaira or who ever else is involved!
Oh someone please find out before I go to bed!
Different city. there are no major hospitals that are super close to her. I would imagine that she would have gone to a city hospital. Chicago would be the closest. There are a ton of hospitals in Chicago of course!
They said short ride to the Hospital so it has to be in the same town!!
Would it necessarily be a major hospital, though?
Look up Hospitals in Mokena. That is all I will say. I am not sure if Chicago is close or not.
Do you think that they would direct mail to an "off" location rather than close to home? If she is close to Oak Lawn, which is where the PO box is, then there is a hospital in Oak Lawn. A big 'un.
I would assume that it would have to be equipped with a NICU.
you could be right rebecca
Does she live in Mokena with her mommy and daddy (I'm assuming that's who they are, by the ages), or by herself?
There's a Children's Hospital attached to it, it looks like.
That would probably be the one rebecca
Legally, is there anything that could happen to the person(s) involved in this scam? Also, if there is a whitepages listing, do you think anyone has attempted calling their house?
Also interesting that there are comments left now to D's "Decision for Now" post. 364 comments all of which tell them sorry about the cruelty. Not too long ago there were 0 comments. Who took the time to do this? Raechel? Is B or D doing this from the NICU because it is such a priority. If this was noted earlier, sorry, I am jumping from one blog to another.
Nothing is adding up at all! I have to go to bed now! My children will be up early. I will not have the luxury of daddy being home tomorrow, but I will check in from time to time.
well the last post said that b wasn't feeling good also so if you're not feeling good and at a hospital i'm sure if you called and asked for her by first & last name then you'd find out. i saw her last name somewhere on here but can't remember where
via gibson twin blog Beccah Rose Beushausen
@ spunketrtlHer name is Beccah Rose Beushausen according to Gibson Twins website.
HER BLOG IS 150% GONE NOW.
OMG it is where did it go!! We will never get answers!!:( This is so so Wrong!!
About her being at the hospital. Why would it be so noisy in her room anyways? The doc and baby were in the other room. They had no family there to causing noise. Was Beccah hooked up to a zillion machines herself while still on the phone? Makes no sense to me!
I was looking at some tweets on Raechel's account and I see Angela C. responding to Raechel (everyone knows Angela C. and baby Audrey she lost). Is it just me or does it sound like Angela knows Raechel in person? It could be nothing. If you don't know Angela, this won't make any sense.@angelac519 Seriously, I could use a breather if you're up for company...about 12 hours ago from TweetDeck in reply to angelac519@angelac519 Which Starbucks? I could use a tall cup of joe!about 12 hours ago from TweetDeck in reply to angelac519
I think they live in the same area and angie was inviting people to join her. not necessarily that they know eachother. not positive though. another one of angies tweets says about her having her editor meet up anyone else want to.
She is not the first one to pull a stunt like this, unfortunately she probably won't be the last on either
mama of 2 I know there is a C in Angie's tweet nickname but she's not Angie C. She's Angie Smith. Joy, Yes beccah can be in a world of trouble such as mail fraud and because she asked for donations for a charity that to me so far doesn't exist (I looked at the website and it has links to site names that are for sale) It didn't look real to me either. Who knows maybe B made that site up as well.
I just dont know what to believe.I am so confused.I must admit it doesnt look good.Its just so sad for someone to dupe so many people,all over this world.I was so upset last night when I found this blog that I cried myself to sleep.Its really sad in so many ways.Hope the truth will come out sooner or later.Its going to be hard to believe other stories similar to this one.
Thank you for keeping us updated Nobody
I was reading through the archives of B's blog on bloglines and she stated she got her 4d ultrasound from a place called Stork Snapshots.http://www.storksnapshots.com/There are some pictures on there but it doesnt look like she lifted one from the site. Sorry if this was already brought up.
