Isabel Rose Fund – Mom Fighting to Regain Custody

TO CLARIFY – This Article was taken from the newspaper “The White Bear Press” and is a repost of what was originally published there. I am keeping this post up after the garage sale to raise awareness about mothers fighting for custody, and the complex issues involved.

What: Isabel Rose Fund hosted a Benefit Garage Sale to help a mother’s legal battle to regain custody of her daughter in Mexico

All funds raised will go to the legal fund for their daughter, Stephanie Lundberg, who lost custody of her now 4 year old daughter after she fled to the US from her allegedly abusive husband who is a Mexican national.

“May 2011, one year after fleeing Mexico with her daughter, a US citizen born in Mexico, from her husband, Stephanie Lundberg, aka Stephanie Colores, of White Bear Lake, Minnesota is fighting for custody in the Mexican legal system in an uphill battle against her ex-husband. In September 2010 a US District judge ruled that Stephanie’s then one year old daughter be returned to Mexico in order to decide custody. Stephanie is attempting to demonstrate to the courts that she has endured physical and mental abuse by her husband since their marriage and move to Mexico City in August 2007 as he attempted to cut her off from her family in the US. Stephanie is fearful that the same is happening to her child.

Stephanie has a team of attorneys fighting on her behalf and the costs keep piling up. In July of 2011 she returned to Mexico, giving up her career and leaving family and friends behind to be closer to her daughter. The legal battle began in August 2010 and is still in process.” (Isabel Rose Fund Site)

Lundberg has returned to Mexico and is attempting to regain custody of her daughter, for the last three years.

      Oh, so I can see that you agree with the fact that this people are getting money from good faith people, because the article was posted at their local newspaper paid by them. Our courts do not make mistakes, they apply the law where a felony is found out, even from a mother that commited an abduction . Please open your eyes!!

        Susan Blake-

        I do not understand why you feel the need to post unfounded accusations against this mother, to which you have provided no proof of documentation. It really seems you have a personal vendetta.

        The newspaper is not paid by the family–this was a published local story, NOT a classified or personal ad.

        The Courts DO sometimes make mistakes– there are various newsarticles, personal stories, and research to prove this.

        People are free to donate or support whom or whatever organization that they choose.

        It is noted that you seem to dislike the family involved, beyond that your comments border on abuse and defammation. Unless you have something constructive to say, that is written in a manner that is respectful and on topic, FCJ will not be publishing your comments.

        Wikipedia: “Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, or traducement—is the communication of a false statement that harms the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation. Most jurisdictions allow legal action to deter various kinds of defamation and retaliate against groundless criticism…”
