The Edwards Family Story

You are here

I Elizabeth Edwards on behalf of my late and former husband William John Edwards our daughter Kim Elizabeth Edwards abducted from me in the labor ward before the placenta was expelled, and our other surviving 5 children graciously request that you respect our right to name our baby and not block out this name it is not her adopted name. ‘Kim Elizabeth Edwards’ is the name we gave to our baby and because a solicitor, who was unknown to us registered our baby as ‘Unnamed Toohey.’ It would also show respect for our marriage and what should have been our legal right to raise our own infant. I married the father of our child 11 months before the adoption order was made. At no time did my late husband William give his consent for our then legitimated baby to be adopted. (See Commonwealth Marriage Act Sect 89 (1)).

In 1997 William gave a Victorian Politician his written permission to be named by the media in any endeavors to bring about justice and truth in the following matter.
William (Bill) registered our daughter with Births Deaths and Marriages (BDM) on 2.6.1998 as Kim Edwards then Kim Elizabeth Edwards on 27th November 2001 (BDM) cancelled the registration with the words ADOPTED. He did this to reclaim his parental and legal right that should have been respected in November 1963.
