When Lisa Miller was ordered to turn custody of her daughter Isabella Miller-Jenkins over to her former partner Janet Jenkins, Miller disappeared with her daughter. Transfer of custody was to take place on Jan. 1.
To help find the girl, two North Texas lesbians, Sheena Patin and Kelsie Orsburn, have set up a new Facebook page called “Help find Isabella Miller-Jenkins.” Isabella has been listed by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
The ACLU represented Jenkins. On their web site, she said:
“Isabella is my daughter. Lisa and I decided together to have a child, and that we would use alternative reproductive technology to do so. We picked out a donor together. I was there with Lisa when she gave birth to Isabella. We gave her both our last names, since we were both her parents. After Isabella was born, Lisa and I cared for her together. We both fed her, played with her, changed her diapers, and loved her.”
Anyone with information regarding Isabella’s and Lisa’s whereabouts should call the Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 800-843-5678 or the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office at 540-586-4800.
