Enough is Enough

Court: Texas wrongly seized sect children
A Texas appeals court ruled Thursday that the state had no right to seize hundreds of children from polygamous sect.

No one should be able to go in and snatch up everyone’s kids under the guise of an unsubstantiated complaint.

If government officials are allowed to do this to the members of the FLDS sect, then WHO is next: the children members of the church you attend?

For example, if you are LDS, Baptist, or Catholic and someone calls in a complaint that there is abuse of children in your congregation, the government (state) might step in and take all the kid that attend your church or your church’s daycare.

Remember it has been documented that the complaint that let government officials to raid the compound was totally FABRICATED.

I am in no way condoning the behavior of the members of the FLDS sect (e.g., underage marriages, food stamp and Medicaid fraud), but we have to remember that is not why those children were taken away from their parents according to what the State of Texas.

As a parent, I am very concerned how easily the state can use heavy handed tactics to come into your home and dictate how you parent your children.

What are your thoughts on the subject?

P.S. This only begins to scratch the surface of this mess. The other day families were given court ordered ‘generic’ plans on what they had to start doing in order to be reunited with their children. Since when did one plan fit’s all apply to raising kids!

Boys will be Boys

Well I have been wanting to take the boys and have a picture done of the two of them. After a horrible day at the picture place on Friday, we tryed it again yesterday. We were sucessful.

Then last night we went on a family walk!! Phoenix was excited to be on a walk and was running and bit the dust. He skinned up both knees, his elbow, and as you can see his head. His head got it the worst of course.

All I could think was.....Thank goodness I got the pictures today!!
