i lived with this lady for most of the time she was a fugitive and did not even know it she married me under a false name and said she was running from the mob. a man and child's heart destroyed. we were a victim, her parents did not even tell me and the mother was a preacher. i couldn't believe this stuff. she was arrested with my child and her child in georgia. she was though very good to me and my child. the most loving woman i know. i feel sorry for her.

Mike,
I found your comment extremely interesting. My brother-in-law went through the same thing. He married Sheri in April of 2003 and she ran off in September of that year. She never gave a valid excuse for leaving and promised she would return. They never divorced and my brother-in-law is waiting for her to this day. Her mother finally told him that Sheri is in prison and Sheri has called him several times and says that she wants to come back to him. Like you, she stole his heart. I believe that there are many exes out there with broken hearts. No one should ever believe a word that Sheri or her mother says. I don't think that they are capable of telling the truth.

Jordan,
I only knew about 1 child, One much younger. Are you still in contact with your mother or grand parents? Could you confirm your grandmother's first name and city where she lives, so that we can be sure that we are talking about the same person. This story just keeps on getting more and more bizarre. I can't help wondering how many lives sheri has really turned upside down. Jordan, I feel sorry for what must have been a very difficult up-bringing and I hope that you have been able to rise above in spite of it. Best of luck to you.

this is the most bizzare family i have ever met. i have met shawn and his daughter and they have stayed with me and sheri in missouri. i had 5 years with sheri. my mother has been to there farm two times. i cannot believe a preacher would let me and my daughter go through this. my family and her family stayed in branson missouri one christmas. i have had ms. arnold down several times while me and sherri was together for those years. she would sometimes stay for weeks. i wonder sometimes if she has learned this way of life from them. i miss madyson so much and she always thought of me as her daddy. i broke down and told her the day she was caught i was not her real dad but would always be there and that grandmother ms. arnold would probably not let me or my daughter see her again. one days madyson will know the truth about all of them. i think this is sick. sheri i loved so much and was chrushed she was great to me and my daughter, we stayed in contact up to about a month ago was the last time she called me. jordan the family always told me that you were her twin sister but i always thought you were the daughter. i still have a couple of things of your mother's and all of our family pictures i still have and we looked great together. i hate that ms. arnold and steve treat me and my daughter they way they do because we did nothing wrong. i miss mady and hope she is okay. jordan i gave your mother up. ms. arnold would not let me see her and when she was out on bail from washington and home all i could here is about how sick with cancer she was and the fbi said they was sick of hearing that story to and that had been used again and again. sheri asked me to come up there and get her and take us all to canada. the feds called me and asked and i told them but they waited two weeks until they went up there and got her. seems to me they like people to run but i did not tell her and then ms. arnold called me and said hey they came and got her then sheri called me from jail and i said i told them were you were. i hated doing that but they are all liers and would never tell me the truth and i told them they should have looked into steve and ms. arnold also because i sometimes think there in on all this money scamming. enough said there i could write a book about the five years with shere and most of it would have to be good they let me think i was running from the mafia. the whole family had me thinking that. what a mess.

the person who is so sick of this i am sure is one of the ones that was in on all of it and she knows who she is. i hate to see another small child raised in a big mess and if i could i would have raised them all. what a mess for my kid or any kid to have to live through. lies, deception, thieving stealing and making up stories that the mafia was after us. 5 years with sheri and 21 moves due to the fact i thought i was running from the mafia. like the fbi said it would make for a good book. one of these days i will do it. tell you what i am shocked about is why not come clean and get it over with so you can get on with your life. i loved this woman with all my heart and her child that i have raised and now that child is being raised by the one that did not raise her own daughter right and is now in prison. if a person wants to change then they need to stay away from the people that put them in that type of a mess. and if i would have known the truth i would have told her to either tell me the truth now what is going on she never would. i just don't understand though if your a fugitive why is not posted so if you happen to see that person or know them you can turn them in. nothing was ever on the internet about her until she was caught so what was our government doing in trying to bring her to justice. also after she has already served time before this is all the time she is going to get. look how many lives have been ruined and now it can happen to another family as well unless she straightens up. she never will as long as she is involved with her mother. sheri if you want a life and a good normal life then you need to leave your mother and start over. i gave you love support and happiness and we were a awesome family and you were good to me and my daughter and madyson thought i was her daddy and did not want to leave. i sat her down and said i will always be your daddy but i can assure you that your grandmother will never let me see you again. and i was right but it will not keep me from telling her when she grows up.

would love to write a book on my five years with her and would love any support from people involved with what this woman has done and may do in the future. i wish she would get some help because i did love her and still love her and mady. i am probably not the only man that still loves her but she need a fresh start and not be motivated or influenced to lead a life of crime again or hurt another family. my daughter still considers her as her mother. she was good to her. would have loved to even got on a talk show to try to expose the people involved in this life of crime i don't believe she was the only one involved.

Jordan,
I am curious about Terry Blackburn. We were led to believe that he was her ex-husband but then it has also been suggested that he is her father. Do you know who he is?

I dont know Sherri Dawn personally but I know her mother Sherry and she is a great person and takes very good care of Maddy. Maddy is a great kid so obviously she didnt do too bad. Yes her past is ugly and she has done some awful things, but she has some pretty awesome kids if you ask me. Please dont run her mother down, that is her child and no matter what she does bad she is still going to love her.
