Reclaiming the Sippel-Herr Family Honor

Adoptees don’t like the ‘adoption industry’. Okay, I get that! There are lots of areas that need improvement.

I am pro-adoption! I adopted, with second husband, my own birth son!

I am also a member of the ‘birth family’ of an adoptee…Joan Wheeler!

I do have a vested interested in the national debate about adoption!

I cannot allow Joan Wheeler’s deeds and words, against the birth family, go unnoticed.

If Joan can speak ‘her story’ well then, the birth family can speak OUR STORY.

Simple as that!

Joan Wheeler has a blog called Forbidden Family; within it she slanders and lies about the birth family.

Joan Wheeler also has a hate blog of false-hoods against her birth sisters, which she put up once the birth sisters found the libelous book she wrote.

Joan Wheeler wrote the book Forbidden Family in 2009. It was pulled from publication in 2011, by the…

Joan Wheeler talks the talk, but can’t (fully) walk the walk. November 23, 2014

In this video, that Joan posted on youtube today, November 22, 2014, Joan burns her “amended” birth certificate. Or rather a COPY of her amended birth certificate. “Symbolically” she says, because she needs the original as her proof of her legal identity.

Oh come on now Joan – back in the 60’s Vietnam War protesters didn’t burn copies of their draft cards – but burned THEIR ACTUAL DRAFT CARDS – knowing that doing so, would subject them to arrest, prosecution and jail time.

If you believe in your heart in something – don’t do it halfway – do it ALL THE WAY!

if she wants to be known legally as Doris Sippel – there is one solution – get her name changed legally from Joan Wheeler to Doris Sippel. Costs about 4 – 5 hundred dollars. and it’s a fairly easy procedure. She still won’t be a legal member of the Sippel family – nor morally, either – because of her rotten misdeeds and lies she has told about her blood kin – but at least she can answer to the name of Doris. I’ll still refer to her as Joan the Liar.

Gert here..
yep legally change her name and be done with it, then.

I asked a friend to look at the vid with me so I could get their impression. They said that, outside of the politics of the issue, just her presentation, after awhile she would get on a person’s nerves. I asked, do you mean her pedagogical skills, (teaching skills) and they agreed also saying she appears to be abrasive.

Looking at it myself for the second time, I did note her body/facial language shows that innate ‘meanness’ she has and that pointing of the finger! And that statement ‘I’m not happy about that’ and her stopping , the action (to start the burning) to make yet another comment.

On the politics of the issue, my friend said, that not ALL adoptees would be burning their birth certifications because there is NO SENSE TO IT. If certain adoptees want changes they have to go to the lawmakers. NOT all adoptions are bad.

I did leave a comment on the YouTube. I said ‘very good’. My reason for doing so is…I DO agree with the politics of open medical records and amended birth certificates. Also, upon reflection, I realized that our father would have done and said the same thing!

oh – you’re friend pegged her right – that whole finger pointing thing – and her saying, “I’m not happy about that.” is how she talks to you even when you’re having a regular conversation with her – she has a way of belittling a person!
For example, once in the early 80′s – she was at my house, looking through my belly dance scrapbook and she made a comment about one of the dancers’ costume – “I don’t approve of that costume.” – I remember bringing my head up sharply, and thinking “who the hell asked YOUR approval?” – I didn’t verbalize my question, but the feeling of inadequency washed over me – because – as a belly dancer myself, I would wear such a costume – and – and – SHE wouldn’t approve of it. – not that I need HER approval – and I DO have the self confidence to pooh-pooh such statements from such small-minded people – but this is how she is.
And she knows it – but doesn’t care! She said so in her now-dead book – she routinely talked down about people who “don’t get it about adoption” and admits that she did talk down to people.


Gert here…May 13, 2016…comments are closed so I’m adding an update 

UPDATE MAY 2016; as older posts are being seen I’m updating with links to my second blog and a Facebook page wherein I expose AGAIN the lies, fabrications and hate that Joan M Wheeler says about me and family. After the first book was pulled from publication by the publisher, May 2011, she has ‘self-published’ another ‘revised’ version. This woman has no shame no sense of family honor!



IN ADDITION I want to share this new update…



UPDATE NOVEMBER 2016; as older posts are being seen I, Gert, am updating with links to my second blog and a Facebook page wherein I expose AGAIN the lies, fabrications and hate that Joan M Wheeler (Doris Michol Sippel) says about me and family. The first book Forbidden Family, A Half Orphan’s Account of Her Adoption, Reunion and Social Activism published in 2009, was pulled from publication by the publisher in May 2011 due to libelous material in it. Then in 2015, she ‘self-published’ a ‘revised’ version calling it ‘Forbidden Family, an adoptee duped by adoption’, being her own editor and owner. This woman has no shame no sense of family honor! Then in 2016 Joan changed her name back to her birth name and reedited and republished the SAME crap in another book; a Third edition! CALLED ‘Forbidden Family: An Adopted Woman’s Struggle for Identity’! Talk about conning people!


this blog’s title/sub title is… DUPED BY ADOPTION & AN WOMAN’S STRUGGLE FOR IDENTITY, A BOOK STUDY an in-depth analyzes of the books called Forbidden Family; My Life as an Adoptee Duped by adoption & An Adopted Woman’s Struggle for Identity by Joan M Wheeler/Doris M Sippel.

I have removed all posts pertaining to the recent discussions about that guy and his two friends. I don’t need that negativity on my page or in my life. I have other things going on right now that need my attention and don’t have time for all that silly drama. Thank you facebook for your help in removing the slander against me. Brighter and more positive days are ahead.

Ignorance breeds ignorance; no wonder people believe #JoanWheeler…they know no better! November 14, 2014

Reclaiming the Sippel-Herr Family Honor

But…the ignorant can’t hide from everyone who sees ‘who’s behind the curtain’, the ignorant use techniques of refusal to ‘hear’ the other side and outright intimidation.

You can fool some people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time!

So I note, on Tweeter, that Joan Wheeler published an ‘article’ (as WordPress’s automation calls a ‘post’)

Joan Wheeler @forbiddenfamily  From a scientific standpoint adoption is morally wrong http://wp.me/p1v46a-ZF 

I follow Joan’s blog, called Forbidden Family, so I also got a notice of this ‘article’.

The post consists of some ‘self-serving’ propaganda BS, that ‘looks’ good, says all the ‘right’ things that adoptees WANT to hear so they can continue to pat themselves on the back that they GOT IT!

The problem is the ‘message’ is all wrong! Totally, and of course, they, the adoptees, don’t want to hear that the message is…

A relatively CALM, yet and still a condescending response by #JoanWheeler to an adoptive parent! November 8, 2014

Reclaiming the Sippel-Herr Family Honor

This comment, of Joan’s, was written and placed on the following blog site, in March of 2009.

This was before she wrote the long angry chapter 38 of the libelous book, Forbidden Family, during the months of April to July 2009. It was during this period that she attempted to con our father out of monies to publish the book and pay for her car repairs and when she insulted him. The result was his final action of removing her from his life. Between April and July 2009, Joan finished the ‘book’ in which she ‘again’ turned her anger onto and into the pages of the book. It was published in November 2009. By May of 2011, after several months of the publisher’s lawyers going over the evidence we, the birth siblings, submitted to them, about the libel in the book. The book was pulled from publication by the publisher…

#JoanWheeler is back, looking for sympathy for her (self-made) plight in the world! November 5, 2014

Reclaiming the Sippel-Herr Family Honor

She has gone through 2 (two) man in the past YEAR! Since the publication of her, now deceased libelous book, Forbidden Family, in 2009, she has had 5 (five) different TRUE LOVES (sugar daddies) … all of which have disappeared. I shall present a comment Joan recently wrote, because she is out there again, looking for that sympathy vote. But first I have a few things to say.

What a bunch of crock! Joan Wheeler’s illnesses may be real enough to prevent her from KEEPING a paying job…but…the root cause of those (plural) illnesses are SELF-INFLICTED! If Joan WOULD get off her BS soap-box about adoption she MAY get better, mentally and spiritually. For you see, for anyone, it is the mental and spiritual aspects of one’s life that CAUSES the physical illnesses. Joan’s belief that she’s been HARMED by adoption is the cause of her many illnesses. I’m not…
