UK – World Congress of Families in Amsterdam – Stephen Baskerville

Note his closing remark!

“Thanks for Ad Verdiesen of the Netherlands, part of my talk at the World Congress of Families in Amsterdam is now on YouTube. So far, it seems to be the only presentation at the Congress so honored. Other speakers did mention the plight of divorced parents however. During the same panel, Babette Francis of Australia described the injustices at some length, and others mentioned them too. There was no resistance or objection to this message. The word is getting out.”

Stephen Baskerville
