Update: October 16, 2016:
Another “incident” and this one resulted in staples to her head. You can see, she has more bruises on her face. And remarkably, she keeps ticking, although she is in absolute misery and despair.
Please pray for Paula, that she continues to make it through these ongoing “incidents”
Let this be a call and pleading to any good, powerful people to FREE PAULA NOW!
Update July 5, 2016:
I am told my Mother fell during the night. She has head injuries and her sweet face is all bruised and battered.
My poor Mother.
She has always been the most normal, balanced, and normal person …. look what they’re doing to her! All she has ever wanted is to live a good life and that’s exactly what she did until guardianship got a hold on her.
Update: June 17, 2016:
My Mother has fallen again.
How much more can she endure and why does she have to endure any of it?
Why can’t she go home where she will be cared for and safe?
Update: May 2016:
My Mother wants to live.
When she was young, she battled during the war for the very privilege of living. She was strong and determined and she wanted a good life for herself and then for her family. So she worked hard; and when she was tired, she worked even harder. And together with my Father, they earned the good life they worked so hard and sacrificed for.
Until the guardianship — now, she is trapped in a facility against her will and she is miserable and afraid and drugged. She just wants out – and to go home to the loving arms of her family. She works hard now just to keep her spirits up and to keep living, hoping God will save her from this misery she doesn’t deserve. Recently, her hip was broken and she underwent surgery. She survived that too.
I was just informed the doctor has placed a “DNR” (Do Not Resuscitate) Order on my dear Mother who above all, wants to live. What more can they take from her but her very life? They’ve taken everything else precious to her and now they are taking what’s most precious to me, my Mother. God save us, please!
I fear what injury may befall her next? How can they who have taken away all she has, including her freedom, sleep at night knowing what they have done to this fine woman who just so desperately wants to go home to her family and be safe?
IT FINALLY HAPPENED…The normal, healthy woman put into nursing home while begging every single day to be free, drugs forced on her, lost 40 pounds of weight and muscle mass. The day “before her big fall” she was drugged into a stupor, very weak and “apologizing” to everyone for “how weak” she feels.
Some Good Samaritans, though fearful for their jobs and retribution, anyway begged to “do ANYTHING to get her OUT before something more happens ” to this woman! Paula has never been a frightened person but her eyes showed fright for weeks before . What did she know? Now, not able to walk, she is either always “resting” (drug induced) in bed or needs to be in a wheelchair.
It may have been an unexpected surprise to some that, in the poor physical condition she was given to that other health system in Baltimore, that she lived through the operation. That health system came out of nowhere and got my mother through. They were given a broken , frail, drugged, skeleton of a person who not long ago was (provable) vital and healthy. The operation was a success and now she is put back In the court ordered (can normal people believe this ?) place she never should have been and is in a wheelchair … or “resting”…. There is no house; it was sold. This has been a one-sided unfair fight from the Courtroom to her Wheelchair …God is crying….
Update: April 2016: My mother – who never suffered from a broken bone in her entire life – now suddenly broke her hip after being made very frail by this forced guardianship and what has been done to her.
By the grace of God and the excellent care at the other system in Baltimore, she survived the operation. I am so thankful for everyone who took care of her. Now, she is being sent back to the same facility where she suffered the break. Can she survive for long? She is so weak, so frail, so tiny. As my wonderful Italian friend/ family said after my Mother’s operation, “Your Mother is made of Italian marble to have gotten through this operation in her frail condition.”
My Mother had refused to succumb to the evil she faced when young and refused to succumb to the evil she had now faced. There was no way to make her weak. But to break a hip after losing all her muscle mass and weight, now has her death sentence. Even the strongest will be weakened. Paula is a woman of valor and integrity and we could not be more proud of her! I want to thank everyone who has stood by us and prayed with us.
Every day, I wake up with the same fear – that today will be the day my Mother will give up. Even the strong cannot fight forever. Please, please pray for justice…

My Mother is fading fast. She was healthy and happy before guardianship. Now she’s skin and bones, has trouble breathing and keeping her eyes open. She needs help!
I am an only child and I have all the PoA’s and advance directives for my parents, the same continuity of wishes that I am their heir, their protector for health and decisions. None of that matters when the plan to grab someone and their estate is made.
When my parents and I came to this country, immediately they went to work 16-18 hours a day . 2 jobs at a time. Then they bought small stores in poor neighborhoods and we lived on top of the stores .They understood when people in the neighborhood could not pay but needed food. My parents gave them what they wanted and waited to get paid. Over and over through all the years I just remember them working, never taking from any one else, never cheating. My mother would tell me when she saw others cheating people, “I like money and need it , BUT I would not do ANYTHING to others to get it ” some did, some still do but not my parents. Through everything I their only child was with them in every business, in any success and failure, in any courage and strength or sadness I was there. Always loving my parents. Them, always loving me. Now, bad people tormented my good, special father , the best warmest, most intelligent man. We miss him so. Why did their evil not leave him alone? My mother has always been a light. The sun and she had so much in common . Good normal people loved my parents. Dysfunctional, envious people of bad character did not. Now everything my parents worked for and made sure we had is gone. When I was born, there was no milk; there were no toys; my playground was the bombed out rubble of buildings . My parents held my hand through everything. Because of them I had milk and bread when it was hard to get. While, I, their only child, was protected by my parents, I held on tight trying to protect them their whole lives. They would make sure we would not be shoe-less, hungry with no where to turn, as they had been. Instead, while my father was ill with cancer and heart trouble, I could not protect him from tormentors although I tried so hard. THEN my good, stable, hard-working all her life mother is taken from me; her house taken; she continuously drugged and everything she worked for and prayed should never happen to her family AGAIN, has been done to her. We want my mother and the almost $2,000,000 that belonged to her. My mother did not work her whole life so she gets thrown into a locked place and drugged while everything is taken. My parents worked so that we would have a place to live, food to eat, and not be a burden to society so they would be an asset, pay taxes and be productive so that others can be helped. This has been taken from them and from their only surviving progeny.
How dare they take my mother, a beacon of light …. take everything she worked for and line their pockets. To take from us and make us poor. My parents came here so we would have bread to eat, and a house to live in — not to have to worry every minute how we would live, like they had to do. Then it all is put into others pockets, into others families, vacations, cars. And we are put back into the place my parents never wanted us to know. The nerve of this.
I want my mother. You have done everything to her. Captured her like she is an animal. Drugged her almost out of her mind, took away her house, her money, her family.. . you have what was not and is not yours. You were not the ones who had to start from nothing, with no one to help you. You were not the ones who had to stand on your feet all day to make sure your family had a roof over your head and food to eat. No. You did not do these things.
But to take away human beings like they are nothing but a piece of property and to destroy everything they worked for , THAT you do !!! You play with lives and laugh while your pockets grow fuller. No care for the precious breath of people we love or that time is finite to be with them.
Love to you is a weakness to exploit. Your toys of power make you giggle. How powerful you are. How weak we are that we cannot fight back. And again for my mother ….. The second time in her life. Where is G-d ?
This woman lost her family very young and recently lost her husband. She has one daughter and one loving granddaughter.
She survived almost insurmountable odds in her life while young. She has always been a courageous and optimistic person. She and her husband worked 7 days a week /16 hours a day to insure they would be able to take care of themselves and not be a burden on society.
Instead of enjoying her promised golden years that she had worked so hard and saved for, she was forced into a locked dementia unit nursing home against her will and given medicines she never needed or had taken in her life. Her home was sold out from under her and her valuables are gone.
When she first was given these foreign drugs, she said, “Please do anything, pay anything to get me out.” She KNEW something that maybe others did not know . .. She was trapped for some reason.
She has begged, pleaded, stated every single day that she wants to be out of there.
Psychotropic drugs given to people that do not need them CAUSE dementia . Due to the daily drugging, she is now almost submissive. She now asks her daughter and granddaughter something she would never utter in her life, in the worst condition, “Please tell me, I want to be out of here.” She asked just yesterday for the first time, “Is the plan that I am to stay here and then drop?”
She understands something very bad is going on. She has a daughter and granddaughter that love her and want her and have a place for her to live.
Please help this wonderful, courageous, woman. An appeal is made to anyone in Baltimore, around this situation, to help Paula. The only way Paula can get out is with the blessing of the judge and others. Her family prays this can happen before she loses her will to live and completely gives up.
During the war years, she was saved twice. Once by a Catholic priest who was friends with her father and her family. The other by German soldiers who let her live.
She needs someone to help her now.
A word of gratitude from Paula’s daughter, Frania:
I am very grateful to the many persons who are contacting me in support of my Mother and the injustice she is suffering at hands of the system which is supposed to be protecting her. Thank you for caring about my Mother; thank you for your outrage about what has happened to her; and thank you for your concern for her health. I also appreciate the information you are providing.
I just want my Mother to be released to my care and my home. It’s what she wants most of all too. I cannot bear the thought of my wonderful Mother being trapped in a nursing home against her will for the rest of her life. She is unhappy and afraid, and there is no reason she can’t be with me as both of us wish. Your support means the world to me.
