Tatiana says she became a Jehovah’s Witness nine years ago after meeting and marrying her husband, Robert. Then, in 2017, she says she started questioning the religious organization’s beliefs.

“When I told the elders that I didn’t want to be a Jehovah’s Witness anymore they told me that Satan had blinded my eyes,” claims Tatiana. “Robert chose to stay within the organization, so our daughter and him are both still in the good graces of the organization. But no one speaks to my son or I because we’re disassociated.”

The couple says that while Tatiana was still contemplating leaving the religious organization, they sought out church elders to help them through some marital difficulties. They claim that because of a misunderstanding, the elders reported Robert to Child Protective Services.

Following an investigation, the couple claim CPS took their son and daughter out of their home, and they have not yet been returned.

“After CPS took our children, the elders never spoke up to help in any way,” claims Tatiana.

Robert says he has always supported his wife but has no plans to leave the faith.
