A Virginia woman who has been missing for more than a month with her daughter violated court orders to return her 7-year--old to her former lesbian partner today.
Lisa Miller, 41, of Winchester, Va., was ordered by a Vermont family court judge in November to hand over her daughter Isabella by 1 p.m. to Janet Jenkins , 45, of Fairhaven, Vt.
But according to Jenkins' lawyer, Miller failed to show up.
"Janet is quite distressed and she notified the police," said Sarah Star, Jenkins' Vermont lawyer. "She is concerned about Isabella's safety and Ms. Miller's mental stability."
Virginia's Fairfax County Police said they would await a court-ordered arrest warrant before offering to assist in the search for Miller, who was last heard from on a Dec. 4 Facebook posting.
The child is at the center of a landmark custody battle between two women she calls "Mommy," the first case to address same-sex unions when the parents cross state lines.
Miller and Jenkins were married in a civil union ceremony in Vermont in 2000. They split in 2004 when Isabella was 17 months old.
What this news report fails to acknowledge is that Lisa Miller saw the sin in her ways, came to find God and renounced homosexuality some years back. Ms. Miller doesn't seem to be suffering from problems regarding "mental stability" so much as she's most likely angry that a liberal judge has decided to take away the child that she gave birth to in order to be placed with a woman who continues to live an abhorrent, morally corrupt, un-Godly lifestyle. Conservatives regard this decision as child endangerment, while liberals no doubt only choose to see it through the scope of Ms. Jenkins "civil rights" being protected. But then for the Left it's never about what's best for the child.
