Getting The Word Out About The Real Abuse
Justice is stacked against anyone brought into The System. Often the only
way to keep the judges, lawyers, CPS agents and other involved politicos in-line
is to bring the case into the media arena, placing their reputations, credibility
and positions in serious jeapordy.

2012/06/24 - Family Preservation and Adoption
The federal law that effectively abolished the reasonable efforts requirement, the so-called Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA), also requires states to seek termination of parental rights for many children in foster care for 15 of the most recent 22 months.

The publicity of child abuse in 1974 resulted in the passage of CAPTA, which was justly passed to protect children. The Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) was enacted in 1997/8 to deal with a problem created by CAPTA.

Children, ripped from falsely-accused parents, fall into the quagmire of institutionalization and subsequent abuse by the State. The question is, was this pre-meditated trafficking in children by agents of the State? Or was it just an ill-conceived experiment gone tragically wrong? Facts point to the former.
