Woman abused as a child talks about foster care reform

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Dr. Katherine Reddick is in Fort Wayne this weekend to talk about foster care reform.

Reddick grew up in the foster care system, but until the age of seven, she would go home to her mother on the weekends. That’s when she was abused.  When her mother died last fall, she and her brother wrote an obituary revealing a lifetime of torture and abuse.

Here is a small excerpt of the obituary:

“She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love.”

Reddick speak Saturday at the downtown Fort Wayne library from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The presentation will be in Meeting Room A. It’s free and open to the public.
