|Maine Agency Urges Support of Federal Child Welfare Bill
Posted: 28 Jul 2009 04:32 AM PDT
A Maine agency is calling attention to a bi-partisan bill before the US Senate that would create a high-level government office and refocus US programs, policies and funding on a singular goal: a permanent family for every child.
The Families For Orphans Act (Senate Bill 1458 and House Bill 3070), sponsored by Senators Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and James Inhofe (R-OK) along with Representatives Diana Watson (D-CA) and John Boozman (R-AR), addresses the needs of millions of children living outside of permanent parental care throughout the world.

Note: They do that to every family they come into contact with, even when they don’t take the child and run.
A father says his family were left traumatised and his elder daughter tearful after Child, Youth and Family Services investigated a smack.

If you are in touch, in any way, with adoption issues, no doubt you have seen the headlines: “Adoption Community Protest Movie ‘Orphan'”; “Horror movie ‘Orphan’ is panned by adoption groups”; “New Adoption Horror Movie Causing a Stir”; “‘Orphan’: A Movie That Reinforces Myths About Adoption”; “Adoption Groups Boycott ‘Orphan’ Horror Movie.”
|Cops & Child Protective Services abuse children when they take them from innocent parents

I have often argued that Child Protective Services and the police are guilty of abusing children. I don’t mean they are guilty of abuse went they take children from homes where the parents have sexually and physically abused them, or where children have been neglected through starvation and the like. What I mean is that when children are taken from innocent parents, which happens a lot more than the public realizes, they are often abused.
