We are following since a few weeks the public outcry in Romania: United for Sorina.

It is dramatic. An 8-year-old girl removed by Police forces from her foster family because she was adopted by a Romanian family living in the US. They paid 30.000 dollars to the American adoption agency.

The girl is still in Romania…

We hold the EU responsible for this drama.

Intercountry adoption became a hot issue for the European Commission in the year 2000.

Forced apart: Winona has been reunited with the mother who gave her awayWinona was told her mother didn't love her  -  and was handed to another family. Nine years later, they were reunited via Facebook. But forced adoption is happening on a scandalously regular basis.

On a sunny station ­platform in a pretty Cornish town this summer, holidaymakers may have witnessed a touching, but at first glance unremarkable, scene.  A mother and teenage son were ­nervously watching a train pull onto the platform, scanning the emerging crowd for the face of a loved one. Had she missed her train? Had they got the right time?  And finally, there she was: a pretty, petite 16-year-old, peering furtively through her fringe. Suddenly the boy broke away with a whoop. ‘It’s her!’ 

The three immediately became tangled in a hug, babbling, crying, their words tripping over each other. ‘You’ve grown so much!’ ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe you are here!’

Forced apart: Winona has been reunited with Tracey - the mother who [allegedly] gave her away.

Civil Society Australia is still behind the times when it comes to accurately recording the details of someone’s birth, writes Penny Mackieson.

What is the primary purpose of a birth certificate? The answer to this fundamental question is constantly overlooked or confused in several current debates, especially as discussed by mainstream media.

New adoption laws, the first of their type in Australia, have been passed in NSW.

New adoption laws that mean children must be considered for adoption before being placed into temporary foster care, have been passed in NSW.

In the first legislation of its type to be passed in Australia, child protection authorities will now be required to investigate putting vulnerable children, aged under 18, up for adoption before the option of temporary fostering is considered.

The rule would apply only in cases where courts have ordered the child cannot return to his or her family until the age of 18.

I am writing to adoption organizations trying to promote some unity for this next presidential election to bring adoption reform to the forefront. If you would like to use my adoption story on your website, here it is.

My parents met in Morningside Hospital in Oregon. My mother was there because of epilepsy, my dad because of depression. When they were both released they went back to their families in Anchorage, AK. They married, and soon I came along. Everything was going great, my dad had a good job working for the State, they were happy. When you've been in a mental institution in the late 1950's early 1960's you are treated like a prison parolee--you have keep regular contact with a social worker.

I'm not sure what happened, but things got rocky in the marriage--my dad had another breakdown, and locked mom and I outside in the snow. My mother's parents came to get us. Soon after the marriage was dissolved. My mom lived with her parents and two teenage sisters, they watched me while she worked two jobs. We were happy. However, this wasn't good enough for the social worker.

The social worker called my mother and family in to her office on Christmas Eve, 1961 and informed them that the living situation was not good enough, and for my mother to keep me she had to get remarried. I was to be placed in foster care until she could come up with a marriage license.

Now that the child removal and adoption amendments have passed into law, the government can take any single mothers children and immediately place them for adoption upon the decision of a DOCS or NGO social worker.  Once placed for adoption no family member has any legal recourse to get custody of the child. The child is gone until eighteen years of age.

Aboriginal Kinship placement can be bypassed.

The NSW government has now valued your child, and he or she is worth $37,000 per year to a DOCS or an NGO for someone else to raise.  And the more damaged they are in foster care - the more money they are worth - up to and including $288,000 per year.

  • If you are young, single and pregnant stay close to your support people, as you will be pressured to relinquish at birth.  Know that many who already have are now mourned as they have taken their own lives, some within weeks of giving their baby up (central coast).

 

Children’s services in Britain is ripping toddlers away from innocent loving families to meet adoption quotas. The government has set quotas for the number of children under five to be placed in forced adoptions. The government makes money off of these adoptions by charging desperate barren parents huge fees for healthy, attractive children.

This heinous action mirrors conspiracy theories in the United States. In the United States, child protective services in various states have been accused of targeting attractive, healthy children, especially those with blue eyes and blond hair, while ignoring the abused children of drug addicts in the ghetto.

The child stolen by protective services in this British story comes from a family full of people with blonde hair and blue eyes. The boy was healthy. Children like this are easy to sell to parents that are desperate to adopt. The state can charge huge amounts of money in fees. It is one of the most heinous government revenue generating hustles imaginable.

From UK Daily Mail…

You could be forgiven for thinking Wendy Tricker has the perfect life. A five-bedroom house in Shropshire; a good career as a management accountant; a supportive and successful husband; two BMWs, a Mercedes and three acres of land filled with a menagerie of animals.

It’s a lifestyle their little grandson adored; running around the grounds, feeding the ducks and chickens, helping Granny walk her beloved eight-year-old German Shepherd, Rupert, whenever he visited.

But the four-year-old boy hasn’t been to see her for nearly 18 months. And Wendy hasn’t seen him at all since last May. Nor has her daughter Charlotte, 21, the youngster’s mother.

There’s been no family rift. Instead, the Trickers insist they are the victims of a social services department hell-bent on taking a child away from his perfectly safe, loving home.

And, short of a miracle tomorrow — when the young boy’s adoption case will be finally rubber-stamped by the courts  — those social services will be successful.

Wendy is among a growing number of grandparents who maintain their families are being taken from them for the most insubstantial of reasons.

Last month, this paper reported on the case of Graham and Gail Curlew, from Sheringham, Norfolk, whose grandchildren were removed from them with no reason ever given.

Then there were Lee and Katrina Parker, from Colchester, Essex, who very nearly lost their grand-daughter simply because social services thought their family, with seven children, was too large.

It is hard to think of a worse wrong the state could sanction. And yet, partly because of the ongoing privacy of the family courts, the outcry doesn’t seem to be forthcoming.

Maybe it’s because most of us simply don’t believe it could happen to us; that only dysfunctional, neglectful families have children who are taken into care.

‘They decided to take him from us the moment we set foot in the hospital,’ Charlotte says. ‘They didn’t want me to be a good mum: they wanted adoption. Lovely children are in demand for adoption. He’s been so loved, he’ll be easy to love. If he’d really been abused, he’d be difficult, and who wants “damaged goods”?’

The government target is to increase adoptions of children in care. Children who go back to their parents — or to loving grandparents — do not meet the target. Thus, in 1995 the number of children under five adopted in England was a mere 560, while children under five whose care ceased (a term that includes those who go back to live with their families) was double this.

By 2012, the number whose care ceased was much the same, while adoptions had more than quadrupled: of these a staggering 1,100 were ominously described as ‘consent dispensed with’.

‘The obsession with adoption is splitting up many families merely because of government diktat,’ says John Hemming MP, chairman of Families for Justice which fights for those who suffer at the courts’ hands.

‘I expect in years to come the then government will apologise to the children for what has been done to them today. What matters now, however, is to change the system so the needs of children come to the fore rather than government policy.

‘In particular, the system ignores grandparents. For children to be taken into care is often a traumatic step, whereas staying with grandparents is normal life and a far better option than foster care. However, grandparents, uncles and aunts have no right to be heard by the court.’

Wendy agrees: ‘The impact this has had on my grandson will never heal. Any physical trauma he suffered was gone within days.  Losing his birth family will haunt him for ever.

‘And that’s not even thinking of the rest of us. I’ll be 65 before I see him again [when he turns 18 and is allowed to search for his biological family], if I ever do. He gave my 82-year-old mother reason to go on living after she suffered a stroke. Yesterday, she pointed at his toy in her house — she won’t let us remove it — and the tears were streaming down her face. She will never see him again.’

And what of Charlotte, who’s been warned by her barrister that if she has any other children, they will be taken into care, too?

‘If I could just hold him one more time,’ she says, ‘I think I would give my life.’

Adoption is the ultimate for of child abuse. While adopters say the child was "Chosen", the child has no say in the matter. Is it any surprise then that the failure rate of adoption is as high as 1 in 4? Or that the suicide rate is very high? Or that there are probably millions of people around the world suffering from a "Primal Wound" and desperate to find out who they are?

Adoption is a selfish act, you take other peoples children to raise as your own on the basis that if they were left with their family, that they might have a bad outcome in life and the almost guarantee them bad outcomes? A judge once said; "Adoption is the breaking up of one family to create another". Children are not pets that can be moved from home to home. Biology means everything, babies start their relationship with their parents in the womb. These babies do not come from "orphanages", there are very few orphanages left in the world. The Adoption Industry is a legal child-trafficking operation, there is big money to be made.

Deborah-Lee Furnesss and her husband Hugh Jackman took advantage of a young desperate mother.  A mother who was promised an Open Adoption.  If this couple wanted to do something nice for all they money they are worth, they would have put that child's needs in front of their own wants, and they would have helped that mother.  It's not like she needed a hand out - she just needed a hand up.

Yet Furness and Jackman held out both hands and took her straight from her womb.  And the papers lied and said the young mother's children were all in care - but truth is when she was pregnant with the child that they stole - she had a 14 mth baby still with her.   Trying to demonise the childless mother is just another low tactic by the baby snatchers, and is extremely common.  And what mother does not suffer depression when their child is ripped from their arms, or in this case, their placenta?

Letter to speaker centres on case of six-year-old in London removed from her Latvian mother after claims of neglect and says social services breached international law

Latvia’s parliament has formally complained to the House of Commons that children of Latvian descent are being illegally and forcibly adopted by British families.

All in the family, with that dilemma solved ... Patricia Economos with Shaye and Jayde.

ADOPTION will replace long-term foster care as the preferred method for finding homes for increasing numbers of children in NSW who cannot live with their own families, in a proposed historic shift in government policy.

The Family and Community Services Minister, Pru Goward, will release a wide-ranging discussion paper on Thursday on proposed reforms to child protection. It includes finding permanent, adoptive homes for children who have been removed from their birth families as one of her department's central responsibilities and aims to make the process of adoption quicker and easier.

  1. Unlike a child who has lost his or her parents through death they are not allowed to grieve. Adoptees are expected to be grateful for the family they now have. The public perceives it as disrespectful to the adoptive family and is discouraged.
  2. Adopted people are viewed to have had a better life. Some adoptees do get a nice, stable home but it comes along with the trauma and grief of losing their original family. Statistically adopted children are at an increased risk of child abuse and later in life drug and alcohol abuse.
  3. Adopted people have their records sealed and are unable to open them in most states. Not all adoption agencies reported the correct facts or passed on information. Many adoptees that were able to reunite with their biological families found that they had never received updates, photos and letters given to the agency. They also found their reason given for surrender was incorrect and also things like cultural heritage, family medical history and siblings.
  4. Adopted people can never go home. There is a misconception that at 18 a child can do what they want and be a part of both families. Most adopted people are a part of two families, but are neither fully a part of either.
