Did she really believe that he was sick?

Kaylene Bowen-Wright brought her eight-year-old son Christopher to a Dallas-area hospital in November claiming that he just had as seizure. The medical staff checked him out and didn’t find evidence of a seizure though they did note that the child was shaking. Believing that his shaking was caused intentionally, they called Child Protective Services to check out the situation.

Dr. Suzanne Dakil wrote in the CPS petition, “I am very concerned that mother has moved from exaggerating symptoms to inducing symptoms.” After an investigation into the mother and son, 34-year-old Kaylene was arrested and her three children taken away.
