Bridgey Rooney Newest from Dunstable North London was a 21-year-old mom who died by suicide. She has been in court battles fighting to get her child John for 2 years and it all came scrambling when it was recommended that John be lined up for adoption.
Bridgey Rooney Newest Family Gave Their Side of what transpired in a Change.org Petition
Bridgey’s mom and sister gave a narration of what transpired in a Change.org petition. Her family described her as the best mother of all mothers saying that her child, John got a bump on his head from her little cousin playing with him. She went to the hospital not thinking what would happen just worried for her child – when they see a bump they think it’s abuse it was far from abuse. John was taken into care that same night by social services.
Bridgey was immediately lost without him. The Social Workes claimed she would have to go on child care courses – being the best mother there ever was he was looked after like a king.
The battle for her son was not only with the Social Workers but also her ex Husband whom she Divorced. The ex-husband was also trying to put Bridgey in a corner and take Bridgey’s Child. His family tried to degrade Bridgey and take her child.
Her family says that the system emotionally manipulated Bridgey to claim that her child was better off without her. She received a phone call from them informing her that they are recommending John to go up for adoption and not go back to her family. She could not bear it anymore. She gave her life for him. He has now been left motherless because of the system and needs to come back to his family.

Another wrote, “This week this 21-year-old mum took her own life because her baby boy was being forcibly adopted by the government.
You may jump to conclude that she may of been a bad mum? The SW account criticised her toddler for having ‘too much milk’.
Please look up the details of this case. A baby boy has no mummy to fight for him now.
This is the 5th Suicide of a parent involved in the Local Authority care process that I’ve been aware of in the past few months!
Share, discuss and help this to go viral please at the request of her friends and family who want her remembered as ‘the best mum they have ever seen’
Stop judging these mothers! If they don’t come for you, your children could be next. RIP darling – the ultimate sacrifice of a loving mother. But so so wrong.”
