This will probably be my last post as I feel that my blog has done its' job. Please feel free to continue to comment. I will be hanging around on and off. First and foremost I want to say that I am sorry to those of you who were hurt by this scam. That being said I want you to know that the people who were hurt the most in this were Ryan and Racheal. Although, I never posted so even I had some doubt in the beginning and for that I want to apologize to them. I know that there will always be questions and feelings that somebody must take responsibility for all of this. There is only one person to blame here and that is Beccah. Please do not leave Ryan and Racheal holding the bag here. I am not saying that I agree 100% with the way they have chosen to proceed, however they have chosen what is best for them and their family. Besides, do you really think that Beccah has just willingly given them all of the details in her little (huge) game? NO. Beccah is a coward and is hiding from the truth.

Ryan has informed me that he has been in touch with the president of PASS in regards to the check that was sent. He did in fact send them a check for $50.00. He is working with PASS to make sure that they do have that check. The rest of the t shirt ( total $300) money did go to Beccah. Be assured that the posts on this blog from Ryan are in fact Ryan.

I have heard the term witch hunt being used on several occasions so I thought I would address it here. I do not wish any harm to anybody even Beccah. I hope that in all of this Beccah is able to get the help she needs to find some peace in life. I do feel that she does however need to be held accountable for her actions. Since, she did receive money from people and through the sale of the t shirts she has commited fraud. She has commited a crime. However, I am not a member of law inforcement so it is not up to me what happens with that. Beccah really does need prayers. She is a tormented and troubled soul. She is in serious need of helpand I truly hope she gets it. I ask that you do not express your anger over what she has done in a violent manner.

I have requested several times that we not post addresses or phone numbers. You are not going to reach Beccah and her family or friends do not deserve to be harassed right now. I feel in my heart that some of our questions will get answered in time and some we will never know the answers to.

In closing, for all of you that have been hurt or misled I hope that you realize that your prayers were not in vain. Eventhough April Rose does not exist God knows what was in the hearts of all of you. Only good can come of that. Do not lose faith in human goodness. Do not approach human suffering or tragedy with skeptisism. Do not turn a cheek to those in need. Keep your faith. It is your faith that keeps this world the place I want my children to grow up in. Do not give up or give in. Take a deep breath and thank God that you are here and can cantinue to do good work. Yes. Pray that Beccah finds peace in this world and stops hurting so that she can stop hurting others. Thank you for your time. Thank you for helping me get to the truth.
Sincerely
Elizabeth

  2. Thank you, Elizabeth! You have done a just deed through this sad blog.

    I was a doubter of YOU at first...accusing a mother of posting doll photos. How cruel! Now we know that the photos were needed to keep the story going. I apologize for doubting you. :)

    I'm sure that R&R will be fine. They have a sweet faith in God like few couples have.

    Thanks, and carry on with your life!

  3. P.S. Those are beautiful kiddos, by the way! I'm sure they'll be glad to have their momma back! :)

  4. Thank you for doing this blog. I myself was a doubter of you until I read the blog of Angie, Jennifer, and Raechel. I didn't even know who Raechel was until April's blog. I now have a link to her blog and I sent an email with words of encouragement to her. it is so sad she was brought into all this. I pray that she finds comfort and that "Beccah" gets the help she needs. Thank you for doing this and sorry for dounting you when you began this. And thank you for your kind words at the end. It is going to be so hard for me to read something on the internet and trust it now. My heart still hurts..... What a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive.

  5. I was also a doubter of you when I first started reading (as I'm sure many of us were. Who wanted to believe that someone would do something so horrible as to make up a story as such.) I'm sorry for doubting you. Thank-you for bringing the truth to light.

    If any good can be said the April Rose blog being a hoax, it is that we know that another mother WON'T be saying a final goodbye to her child.

  6. thank you Elizabeth for all your time and hard work and for bringing this fraud out in the open now I know it wasn't just me and that gives me peace you did an awesome job and I will miss reading your blog

  7. I want to thank you for saying you are sorry. This is the first place I have seen that, and I think it has been a point missing from the explanations at most of the blogs that led us to April Rose in the first place. (It wasn't said at the blog where I originally saw the link.)

    I did not want to believe it was fake, but thank you for doing this blog.

  8. Thank you for putting your neck on the line with this blog. It was so great to have a place to vent and discuss this fraud. Your kids are adorable. God Bless

  9. Extremely well written. What a crazy few days it's been. I think we are all ready to move on now.

  10. Thank you for this blog and getting the scam outed. I did not have any financial investments but did invest my self emotionally with the blog because I had a complicated pregnancy with my daughter and my heart ached for this mother.
    Please Beccah if you are still reading this do get help.
    I am so happy this all seems to be over. Now I can get back to my family as well LOL

  11. I for one couldn't believe it had gone on for so long, back when she posted dates they didn't make sense to me nor my sister (who is an RN). Adding to it I could never trust someone who only calls herself by a letter and never (before several sites showed me her "picture") posted a full picture of herself. I understand she might have in the beginning but I never saw one until she was "outed".

    I am hurt because very dear friend of mine was hurt by this.

    Someone should contact a Chicago news station so justice can be served. I did hear where someone sent Nancy Grace this information however maybe locally she should face fraud charges. Its been my experience when its just "let go" that they do it again they thrive on attention.

  12. Wow. I can't believe all of this. How in the world could somebody come up with all of that crap. I wish I had seen your blog earlier, because I too was sucked into believing her lies, and cried many times reading her blog. Thank you for this.

  13. Becky she wasn't the first and sadly she won't be the last things like this happen all the time.

  14. Very nicely said. I hope you will still be around :) Beautiful kids!

  15. Thank you Elizabeth!

    On a side note, I was just thinking how fitting it is that "B"'s real business is named "See Through Me Studios". Yes, we have seen through you B, but a few answers and a little more transparency on your part would do nicely now.

  16. Elisabeth,
    I too believe that she needs to be held accountable. Not for my personal vegence, but that she doesnt do it again. If everyone just lets it go, it will be like lettinc a child get away with something. She will just do it again.

  17. Nicely said and nicely done, thanks for all your work making sure this was brought to light.

  18. Thank you for showing us the light!I am just glad I could help you in the quest for the truth!!

    Your baby's are so so Beautiful!!

  19. Thank you all so much for your comments! I am glad to have been able to shed some light on this situation.

  20. Thanks Mom to ivy,

    I learned this lesson from someone on parents.com's forums. She had misreppresented herself and when she got caught she went away only to reinvent herself and come back two months later.

    this is a crime she needs to be punished not for vengence but so that this doesn't happen again.

    I am thinking of contacting tv station in Chicago who knows this might not be the first time she's done this. I wonder if "d" was really a part of this or just in the dark like her family

  21. So what ever happened to the talk of someone turning all this into the media? I know that Ryan wanted that to wait until they made an announcement about the facts but now that that is done has anyone informed any media? I would LOVE to see a reporter of some kind catch up to "B" and confront her. I know sh is sick, but she has made all of us sick over this stunt she has pulled and we deserve to see her held accountable.

    ReplyDelete
  22. BTW, like everyone else has said, JOB WELL DONE Elizabeth!! :)

  23. I am building up a folder with things, I didn't have much to do with her site (reading it) because I felt in my heart it was bogus to begin with. There are several tv stations I am sure would be happy to investigate her. If anyone has anything to add my email is listed on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for setting us all straight. I too had bought B's story hook, line and sinker. While I didn't make any monetary donations (Thank God). I did invest in hours of reading her blog, words of encouragement, along with many tears and many prayers. When I first found out this was all a scam I felt like my prayers had been wasted. However, God knew. I believe he 'redirected' my prayers to a "real family" who needed them.
    May God Bless You.

  25. Just to answer your question. I have been in contact with the Chicago Tribune

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks again for the compliments and your welcome!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's good about the Trib. They will find out if R&R are behind this or not.

  28. Amy poor Ryan and Raechel were both victims and had nothing to do with this. They were victims in all this for one they live in tn and B lives in IL, where they didn't have face to face contact. If you read the joint post mckmamma, and Angie (bring the rain) you would know that R and R aren't involved.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I read the triple post. Like I said, I trust Angie and Jennifer. But I'm pretty sure they're being duped.

    ReplyDelete
  30. CC thats an excellent way to think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Angie met Raechel for coffee. Why on earth would someone who lost their child last year to T13 (and there is an Obit for their little girl) help someone scam saying that she was having a baby with the same condition? that makes total and udder nonsense. Not to mention Raechel isn't hiding behind an R and she does show pictures of both herself and her children.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you so much Elizabeth, for bring us the truth (even when we didn't want to hear it!) and thank you for everthing. I hope with all my heart that Beccah gets the help she needs and that she is stopped from hurting anyone else. I continue to pray for her. Do you think you could keep us posted if there is a news story or any sort of investigation done?

    P.S. Your kids are adorable, and you are beautiful as well!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, and if you ever decide to start a blog, I would love to read it. So let me know if you do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Right now I have been posting comments as I get bits and pieces of info. If I get enough to make a whole post that will actually make a difference I will post it for sure. Maybe I might start a new blog someday after this is completely wrapped up. Thank you for the comments about me and my baby girls.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And by the way, Nobody, I also wanted to say that I'm really, REALLY sorry for saying (last night?) that you have an icy heart.
    It's just a LOT easier to believe that someone would make up a cruel post about a sick baby being a fake baby then it is to imagine that someone would make up a sick baby entirely.
    I've been feeling really bad for saying (typing) it, and I just want you to know how sorry I am!

  36. Thank you bloggie. I knew that a lot of people would not be very fond of me. I really felt in my heart that I had to get this out though. I wrestled with whether or not a blog was the right thing to do, but I felt I had no choice. I hope I have done a good job in expressing my intent here. I have had so many different emotions about this. My heart aches so much for Rachel and Angie. I even feel so sorry for Beccah. What a sad soul.

  37. Elizabeth, I hope you see this, I can't find your email. I have released my emails with Beccah on my blog.
