The Horrible Truth About CPS: The Tortured Lives of Noami and Devani
Josh and Brenda Burns are the parents of Noami. Noami was born with a slight head trauma from birth complications. When she was a few months older, Noami was on her father’s lap slipped off his knee when he went to take a call, and in an attempt to save her from smashing her head on the coffee table, Josh put his hand out and protected her head and face. This accident put Josh in jail on charges of child abuse and the nightmare of harassment by Child Protective Service (CPS), DHS, and Local Police began. Brenda had to go into hiding because they were also starting to accuse Brenda of being unfit as well.
Josh still battles to appeal conviction even though he was trying to protect his little girl from injury.
Michelle Tremor-Calderon lost custody of her infant daughter, Devani (Jane Doe) because of a non violent argument with her boyfriend, Jonathan Hileman, who was struggling with cocaine addiction. Devani was given to the Frodsham family by Department of Child Services (DCS).
Fast Forward 3 years, after countless ignored complaints by Michelle to DCS about possible abuse to her daughter and signs she may be experiencing sexual abuse, Army Specialist Randal Bischak, and former State Licensed Foster Parent, James Frodsham were arrested for running a child porn/sex ring.
To make this story even MORE of a nightmare for Devani, she was not returned to the mother, but given to another family, the Osteraas, and at 5 years old was plunged into a bath of scolding hot water where 80% of her body was severely burned.
“[Devani] had to be placed in a medically induced coma, suffering from organ failure. She lost her toes to amputation “and will undergo lifelong operations to replace 80 percent of the skin on her body and will need incredible amounts of care for the duration of her life as a result of the abuse she suffered in the Osteraas’ home.”
