Update on developments, of Joan Wheeler’s dirty deeds, that were exposed on August 14, 2012
It does pay to expose the dirty deeds of, those that think no one is watching them, for the exposure keeps them honest…maybe! But you know, you always have to watch them for unless someone is there to expose them they always think they can get away with it. Well NOT on our watch they don’t! As Ruth recently said ‘she’s such an egotist that she wouldn’t remove it on her own.’
A week or so ago, middle of Sept, I looked back at some items that we exposed in August and found that yes indeed our investigative reporting and wide spread exposure had resulted in positive actions. Here is my original post for reference:
Now this updating can be difficult to follow but bear with me…for there are several points to consider.
It did take some time for Joan Wheeler to get it in her head that yes her book is DEAD. She committed libel and the publishers want nothing to do with that book. After long last we find that there is now nothing on her Forbidden Family web site that the book exists! And she has removed the overt attacks against the birth siblings on that site; except of course under the tab of ‘all my blogs’.
But we find that on her facebook page she has in the ‘about’ all the promotional hype that was printed on the cover of the DEAD book and about her ‘credentials’. We also find out that she is working on a revision!!
April 9 Just to let everyone know, my book is out of print. Currently under revision! Second edition will be out soon!
comments and her reply
Those who have been “crushed” by adoption seem to be the only ones who really “get” what the secrecy, lies, and outright criminal adoption practices of closed adoptions mean. Keep writing and exposing the truth. One day, the rest of the world will come out of the “adoption fog” and accept the truth about how so many lives have been destroyed by the EVIL practice of adoption… May 5 at 2:18pm
I am looking forward to reading the 2nd edition of your book, “Forbidden Family.” May 5 at 2:20pm
I wonder how she plans to explain, to any potential publisher, why her first book was pulled for libel. Some people are so dense they do not see reality! Moving on…
Regarding the ‘hide behind’ site she had up on H. Phelps Clawson, a cache view of the site produces this.
This is Google’s cache of
Under the tab Followers, where I was listed as one, the screen has some ‘cover’ I couldn’t understand, but apparently she disabled that function and I was unlisted. Ahh…shucks I wanted so to follow her! Will I ever get over her snubbing of me? I’ll try some how!
And under the tab About Me

Now a google hit for the Clawson blog produces this:
Blog has been removed
Sorry, the blog at hphelpsclawson.blogspot.com has been removed.
This address is not available for new blogs. Did you expect to see your blog here? See: ‘I can’t find my blog on the Web, where is it?
Also all Images for clawson phelps will get you the same message that Blog has been removed but there are images that she had on that blog.
So once she was exposed, by us siblings, about the Clawson blog, she must have gotten scared, after all Clawson IS a famous person and who knows what kind of stuff could fall on Joan’s head if family/authorities saw how she is using the man’s name and reputation. Shame, shame.
Regarding our brother’s writings…I have spoken with my brother’s heir and while I know their intent I can’t know the outcome of their actions, but, I know this…the entire family is against Joan Wheeler and all her attempts at slandering, lying, misrepresenting and fabricating things that are not true and her continued attempts to use hate-speech against us.
This blog post’s contents will be emailed to my brother’s heir to keep him informed.
There is always a day of reckoning.
