It boggles the mind…Joan Wheeler hates her blood family yet uses the dead members of the birth family and another dead person to HIDE behind and ATTACK the living birth members!

UPDATE May 27, 2015

recently Joan mentioned on Facebook,  the name H. Phelps Clawson, a person she met when she was young, he was a famous Egyptologist. What she FAILED to mention is that she ONCE had a blog on this named individual in which she USED the site as a COVER and MEANS to PUBLISH her hate blogs against us birth siblings. I am reblogging this post with this update for the continued benefit of all to KNOW the true extent that Joan will go to. NEVER forget her dirty deeds and words.

UPDATE, MARCH 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. In this ‘version’ called ‘duped by adoption’ she has increased her exploitation by including PICTURES and REAL NAMES and much more personal information violating again the families. Joan has no decency NOR shame. There is NOTHING in this book for adoption reform. She is totally against adoption and her two families. To learn more see…

UPDATE JULY 2017; 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.

in addition…

This author, whether she goes by Joan M Wheeler or Doris M Sippel, has three books, all the same but for title and author name. There are two ‘discussion’ forums, on Amazon, for two of the books. The first book has one review and several comments related.

The buying public has the right to view and comment on those forums and comments.

Here are those links…

AND NOW back to the original post…

Joan Wheeler is a sneak, working under various covers, as she continues to use people, living and dead, to promote her hate campaign against blood relatives! Joan goes by several internet names; 1adoptee, legitimate bastard, halforphan56, forbiddenfamily, Joan Wheeler born as Doris Sippel and probably a couple I haven’t really seen…yet.  She is also on Facebook and Twitter.

We have told of and provided some hard evidence that Joan Wheeler had a hate blog against us, the birth siblings, in 2008, which was removed. She since has a forbiddenfamily web site and the cyber bulling page that she put up around October 2010. Evidence shows that Joan recycled much of her original hate-blog of 2008 (memoirs of a found adoptee) into this cyber bullying blog.

In recent months we have exposed her latest series of attacks via Brian Maloney of Williamsville NY; whose blog is called

We have documented each and every exchange with this cyber-bully, acting with Joan, but we have not, as yet, told HOW we first learned about Brian and the rest of Joan’s hate blog sites against us. We have shown, via exposing the attacks upon us, on forums and via his own blog that Brain Maloney has worked with Joan for quite a long while…behind the scenes, in the gutters, working to discredit our family.

Purely by chance, in April of 2012, I came across three things one day. Brian Maloney’s hate blog against us and two other blogs by Joan Wheeler, with her ‘blogger’ name of ‘halforphan56’.

The other sites I found were created, by Joan, as a ‘shell’ for her to hide behind and continue to promote her hatred against the birth family. Both these sites are named after individuals that are dead…one a famous person and one our own brother! It boggles the mind…Joan Wheeler hates her blood family but yet uses the dead of the birth family and another dead person to HIDE behind and ATTACK the living birth members!

The two blogs are in the names of H. Phelps Clawson, a famous Egyptologist and our brother Leonard J. Sippel, Jr. She also states that she has permission and copywrites from our father Leonard J Sippel, Sr. At the bottom of the pages for these blogs you find the references to her main hate blogs against birth siblings and family.


On Blogger since October 2010

My blogs

H. Phelps Clawson

Writings of Leonard J. Sippel Jr.

I, Joan Wheeler, and my book, Forbidden Family, are Victims of Cyber Bullies & Stalkers

About me  Author of “Forbidden Family: A Half Orphan’s Account of Her Adoption, Reunion and Social Activism”- out of print. Author of website and blog:

Now, once I saw this blog, in April 2012, about my brother, I emailed my brother’s son and heir; I have not heard back from them. It is now past time to expose these web sites. Since both my father and brother are dead there is nothing further I can do, except what I’m doing, exposing Joan Wheeler’s continued attacks up the birth siblings and her exploiting of dead birth family members to continue her hate against adoption. I am emailing this post to my brother’s heir (his son) and can only hope that they take some kind of action against the continued exploitation of  their family.

I am going to be placing, the title of this post, as a comment on everyone of Joan Wheeler’s hate blogs sites and Brian Maloney’s hate blog.

A recap…

It ought to be remembered that the libelous book is NOT out of print, it is PULLED from publication because the publisher saw it as a libelous book and that Joan Wheeler violated her contract.

In August of 2010 my Dad gave me two original copies of my brother’s stories. I typed them and emailed them to Ruth who posted them on her blog. I did not have a blog of my own until July 2011. My father never told me that he gave any other materials to Joan…but…my father did not communicate well in the last years of his life. I do not have any explanation as to how Joan Wheeler received the stories my brother wrote. If my brother’s heir chose to ignore Joan Wheeler there is nothing I can do.

To see what we placed on our family site see…

Ruth Sippel Pace – Family Stories stories to memorialize my family

short story by Leonard Sippel Jr. – 36 Hours  September 1, 2010

short story by Leonard J. Sippel Jr. – A Sunday’s Madness  September 1, 2010

So we see that we had placed these stories on our blog in September of 2010.

We have known of Joan’s forbidden family blog and the cyberbullying blog since 2010

Joan creates her cyberbullying blog in October 2010 recycling hate material from a 2008 blog.

Joan creates the ‘writing’s blog March 26, 2012

Joan creates the ‘cover’ blog for Clawson probably about the same time as I had not been aware of it until April 2012 when I found my brother’s writings blog.

Brian Maloney creates his blog against the birth family April 2012


UPDATE 2016... Joan DELETED the blog on Clawson and my brother’s writings are only available by INVITE by Joan! Why? Because I exposed her and she punishes the rest of the family by making our brother’s writings UNAVAILABLE to us!
