Carolyn Lowe took custody of two infant boys and kept them for years without any court approval. Her only authority: two form letters issued to her by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

The state agency gave the custodial letters to Lowe even though it had previously put her foster parent license on hold and had removed a child from her home. DCFS officials say they have issued "potentially thousands" of such letters to caregivers declaring that they have custody of children.

Homeschoolers have won a round in the long fight against the crackdown on family rights contained to the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The convention orders that children can choose their own religion with parents only having the authority to advise them, the government can override a parent's decision regarding a child if a social worker disagrees, a child has a right to a government review of every parental decision and Christian schools would violate the law if they refused to teach children "alternative worldviews."

A Child Welfare Decree 2010 has been endorsed by Cabinet to see the reporting of child abuse cases reported to the appropriate authorities by health officials.

The Decree will come into effect on a date set by the Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma who said this Decree is in response to the concern raised by health professionals at the increasing number of incidences of child abuse cases seen through the health system.

Palestinian Child Day comes on 5 April of each year. On this day, the Palestinian community celebrates children, who represent the present and the future of society.

This year, once again, this occasion comes at a time when Palestinian children still suffer not only from the violence and brutality of the occupation, but also from Palestinian internal strife. "On this day, it is necessary to emphasize that child protection and child welfare must be everyone's concern and responsibility."

Kat Stacks is the so-called next "Superhead" and this groupie has been revealing her promiscuous deeds with celebrities via the internet.

The mom of one may eventually be out of commission if Child Protective Services can prove negligence on her part towards her son. The rapper magnet is accusing the Young Money crew for reporting her to CPS, and blew up about it in a series of tweets on her Twitter page recently.

Right after the passage of the health-care reform bill, Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston signed a pledge to seek its repeal.

Last week, the Savannah Republican was demanding that state Attorney General Thurbert Baker challenge Obamacare as unconstitutional, claiming it "may irreparably harm the safety and security of our health care system and, indeed, our country."

Government distorts cost of care Barack Obama spent over a year criticizing insurance companies as the source of all evil in the health care industry.

He never acknowledged that the largest health care insurer in the country is the big government that he adores so much. Medicare and Medicaid are the largest insurers that represent over 50 percent of all health care payments.

If even half of what this anonymous reader who e-mailed about his experience as a Census worker is true, imagine the squandering of tax dollars taking place on a mass scale. Crikey.

Hi, Michelle: I would first like to apologize for stealing your tax dollars, but if it wasn't me, it would be someone else. I am an underemployed 20-something Tea Partier, and after reading about how much government waste was going to the 2010 census, I figured that I might as well "git me some of dat Obama money" until I find something more solid.

Flawed Harvard Study and Misrepresented Statistics behind Recent Legislation -- Fire safe cigarettes laws seem like a great idea; however, FSC laws are dangerous for both smokers and non-smokers, and need to be repealed immediately.

The state of New York adopted the first FSC (fire standards compliant) cigarette law. New York officials felt it was best to not take responsibility for any toxicity testing, because of the time and expense involved in toxicity testing on human volunteers, and concerns over becoming the federal regulatory agency and any resulting liability.

Your March 26 editorial "A tragedy's questions" asked, "Why are Renee Bowman's adoptions still secret?"

There is an easy fix: D.C. law should be amended to open child welfare proceedings, with judges retaining authority to close some or all of a hearing or record in a child's best interest. This approach, already in place in many states, balances accountability with privacy.

During a recent exchange of e-mails with the director of a highly effective, and very well respected child welfare NGO, I received the following sobering note:

The few times we have done interviews for local television and newspapers we have seen an increase in the abandonment of babies, as parents who are desperate for help hope we will take care of them if they are orphaned.

Mumbai: The 14-year-old girl, whose family members were arrested by the police in December 2009 for trying to get her married, told the Bombay high court on Monday that she wanted to study and pursue a career in medicine.

The girl, who had scored 71% in her school exams in the last year, was handed over to her parents after they gave an undertaking that they would not get her married till she turned 18. Zakia Begum, the girl's mother, had moved the court through a habeas corpus petition seeking custody of her daughter.

Avian Influenza is continuing to devastate the Mexican poultry industry with some reports stating that two million birds have now been destroyed.

According to the last notification report of the OIE dated 28th February, there are 11 reported outbreaks in the Guanajuato region with over 1 million susceptible birds confirmed. However, there are fears that the number is growing ostensibly and the impact will soon be felt on the market as was the case last year, when prices sky-rocketed as a result of an AI outbreak.

For Joe and his daughter, the trouble started when someone told the CAS he had pulled the girl's hair. There was no evidence to support that accusation.

Even after all charges against Joe were dropped, the CAS kept his daughter in foster care for another six months. Until now, the family preservation program has worked closely with Algoma Family Services, Sault Area Hospital, Women in Crisis Algoma and other local agencies to intervene on behalf of families in crisis, ensuring families can stay together and stay healthy through whatever crisis they were facing.

Conservative Democrats are saying it should be stronger language than you can't fund abortion with anything that comes through the healthcare bill.

O'Donnell say public funding of abortion would eliminate the problem of unwanted children and public funding of foster care.

The case of the seven-year-old son of a Finnish-Russian couple who was taken into foster care in Turku reached international dimensions, when a child welfare envoy named by President Dmitri Medvedev arrived in Finland to mediate in the matter.

The boy had been taken into foster care by local child welfare authorities, and had spent more than a month in a municipal family centre. After going to school for the first time in a long time on Monday, he escaped to his parents' home. The boy, his Finnish father and his Russian Mother barricaded themselves in their Turku home, along with the camera crews of three Russian television stations.

It sounds like Nazi Germany: families afraid of a loud knock on their door in the early morning, police bursting in, and taking away their children. But it's not Nazi Germany. It's today's Germany.

In Berlin, when authorities came for 7-year-old Dan Schulz, his family secretly videotaped the abduction. On the tape, family members are crying and the boy can be heard screaming, "Mom I don't want to go!" The boy was taken by Germany's notorious child welfare agency, the Jugendamt.

You once loved your partner and had children with her or him. But now things are not working, and for whatever reason one or both of you have decided to separate from the relationship.

Some parents are able to separate with respect and honor. Other parents may be resentful or angry with their past partner, but they are still able to understand, respect and support the child's ongoing relationship with their ex. Ugly custody battles are extremely harmful to children. The children become confused and torn. They lose part of their trusting relationship with each parent and they lose part of themselves.

One of the world's wealthiest men and the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, has suggested vaccines as one method of reducing the world's population. He presented a speech on global warming, stating that CO2 emissions must be reduced to zero by 2050.

LifeSiteNews reported that in 1995, UNICEF's anti-tetanus vaccinations were found to contain B-hCG, a pregnancy hormone that can permanently sterilize women. An estimated 3 million women between the ages of 12 and 45 received that vaccine. Another UNICEF polio vaccination campaign in Nigeria was suspected of sterilizing women in 2004.

More than four decades after the first model preschool interventions, there is an emerging consensus that high-quality early-childhood education can improve a child's economic and social outcomes over the long term.

Publicly funded kindergarten is available to virtually all children in the U.S. at age five, but access to preschool opportunities for children four years old and younger remains uneven across regions and socioeconomic groups. Parents with financial means have the option of enrolling their child in a private program at their own expense.

The first step in fighting poverty is understanding the struggle of the poor, according to the organization charged with leading that fight in Manatee County.

That's why the Manatee Community Action Agency is starting a program aimed at giving those who want to make a difference a crash course on what it means to be poor. The MCAA will hold a Life on the Edge workshop and panel discussion March 18 at First Baptist Church Family Life Center. It's the starting point of a $20,000 anti-poverty initiative paid for by federal stimulus funds.
