You will remember that my GPS blog posted daily stories about Bethany Bayne who at seven weeks of age was removed from her parents, Zabeth and Paul, following a diagnosis of shaken baby syndrome in September 2007. Her removal was accompanied by the apprehensions of both boys as well. For four years, the Baynes sought to prove their innocence and to recover their family. Finally in August 2011 the family was reunited but not until a lengthy court case and a long wait for the judge's decision and several more months of parents jumping through hoops.


Throughout the four years, Paul and Zabeth Bayne visited the children faithfully each week and retained and sustained a parental relationship particularly with the boys who were four and two when they were removed, and established a relationship with Bethany who had been too young to remember them. In 2011 Josiah was born and removed from his mother shortly after birth as a matter of protocol.  
They have been happily together since Aug 2011, with a great family life, living as though nothing had ever interfered with their family.
This is largely due to the strength of the parents, the grace of the LORD, the help of lawyer, the late Doug Christie, the counsel of advocate Ray Ferris, the blessing of countless supporters and advocates.
