Dear Jenna Marie White,
I suppose I should start out by saying thank you. Clearly, you felt that my life, story, and pictures were worthy of sharing with the world. And I have to agree that in my early pregnancy stage when I had just quit working out and was definitely counting how many oreos I inhaled, I was a darn cute pregnant woman. Nauseous beyond belief, but cute! The fact that you want to mimic any part of my life is....well, flattering....I guess...
But honestly, I'm kind of disturbed by it. You see, the stories that I write here on my little blog, my photos, my life....they are just that. MINE. And I don't appreciate learning that they have been downloaded and then re-uploaded to several different websites under the pretense that I am actually you.
In the event that this doesn't make sense to you, please allow me to clarify.
My pictures and stories are NOT to be used without my permission. In fact, everything on this website is protected by copyright. You stole my story and photos, and then when you uploaded them to FaceBook and Baby Center and went around telling people that the woman in the photos was you, you committed identity theft. What you have done is against the law and can be fully prosecuted. Maybe you didn't realize that, but that's a true story. As true as all of the other stories that I write and post on my blog.
another quad mom gave birth to four beautiful, healthy babies and passed away without ever getting to see or hold them. So your attempt to masquerade as me and gain the goodwill of people doubly hurts right now. We have a very real quad family that just lost their wife and mother that need real HELP, and you are out trying to make a name for yourself and see what you can get out of it.
I feel that I should clue you in on something. You should know that I am in an awesome network of quads (and more) moms. We reach clear around the world and are in every state in the US. We are tight, and we know each other's kids well. I also have a wonderful community of readers here on A Beautiful Ruckus who know my kids well. In fact, it was a reader who realized that you were masquerading as me in one of her FaceBook groups, and it took my quad mom friends about 30 seconds to find your profile once they realized what was going on. This sort of identify theft has happened before to moms in our group, and believe me when I say that the group has become experts on finding the perpetrators.
You do not want to mess with me or the other mamas. I promise. We will find you. Every time.
Jenna Marie White. Or is it Jenna Corcoran? Or is it something else entirely different at this point? Whatever your real name is....you are sick. Really ill. Please go see a mental health professional. Whatever is making you rationalize behavior like this is not okay. Do you even understand the severity of what you've done? This isn't a game. This is a criminal act. Talking to a doctor is very appropriate at this point. I want you to get better, but you have to take the first step to get help. Preferably before you steal from someone who will press charges. Now is a good time to turn your life around.
Mostly though, I just feel pity for you. Pity that you think your life is so boring that you would take mine and make it yours. Life is what you make it. I didn't ask for quadruplets, but I've chosen to embrace life and all of the ups and downs that go with it. My life is no more important or special than your life. Maybe you are hurting because you want a baby yourself, and you can't have one. Jenna, I've been there. I get it. I know the tears and the pain and the frustration. But you can choose to make the most of what you have and bless others rather than stealing from them. The best advice that I can give you is to go figure out how to live your life and enjoy what God gave to YOU. Find the beauty in it. I promise it is there if you look.
Anyhow...*sigh*...you wanted attention? Here you go. This post has gone out to thousands of people and you can count on them seeing the photos that you took from my blog and called your own. So far, my friends have reported your profile and had you removed from FaceBook twice. I even sent you a message asking you to remove my photos, but you didn't respond before FaceBook deleted you the second time. I know that all you have to do is set up a new profile with another new name, and you can easily upload my photos or another moms photos again, so I want to make sure you understand what I'm saying:
DO NOT STEAL MY PHOTOS OR STORIES AGAIN.
And that goes for every other quad mom, triplet mom, twin mom, singleton mom, or other human being on earth who has photos and stories that you have been eyeing.
This is your warning. Please take it and move on.
Have a great life....your OWN life,
