Have you ever had a time in your life when you felt like the world was simply spinning and you were just along for the ride? I feel as though my life has been running me. Lots of good and bad things are taking place, more good really than bad but change is oh so stressful.
I wanted to let my faithful readers know that I am not gone, the news articles are still being added regularly, just not quite as many as I’d like. I am still approving posts on our yahoo group and trying to keep up with our Facebook page.
I am more than happy to post a well written story. I save them all and try to go through them when I have spare time. The week of 4th of July is one of our busiest weeks of the year for our business. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing.
The best news is that soon I will have help for the site and I have many changes in mind for Kidjacked. I’ve found a terrific freelance editor, I’ll be introducing her soon.
I would also like to give a huge thank you to all of you who are submitting news items and posting comments to our blog. One of the worst things that happens to a victim of false allegations, is the feeling of despair and the isolation one feels. Let’s face it, if you have been falsely accused of child molestation, child abuse or neglect; you must be guilty. No questions asked.
Many young mens lives have been ruined by absurb allegations of statutory rape (by the parents) of the boys own girl friend that is only two years younger, which is perfectly normal. The young man ends up on a sexual offender registry for the rest of his life.
The point is not everyone who is accused of wrong-doing, has done wrong. Some “child welfare” agencies are quick to remove children, slow to return them and do little to improve the nuclear families circumstances, while at the same time foster parents are handsomely paid for their (unnecessary) services. This is an injustice.
Children need and desire a safe, stable home within their own family unit and should never be removed from a home without substantial evidence of immediate danger or death. If the federal government wants to enrich the state with grants to assist families, I think it’s wonderful but the rules MUST change. Maybe the foster children should provide input as to whether or not a bonus should be paid for the services they have received. That might shake a few trees.
