NO, I am not talking about the classic definition of child trafficking, I am talking about a network in which Social Services takes children from homes, deposits them in foster care and then offers them up for adoption. It is big business. It is legal.
And it is pervasive.
Arizona has the dubious honor of being the worst offender in the nation. It is estimated that as of 2012, Arizona nets about $1.14 billion per year from this practice. Net. Apparently the federal government subsidizes foster care children to the tune of $6000-$7000 per month per child. The state then leases the child to a foster home for about $600 per month and the balance is pure profit. In addition, as a ward of the state, the child is subject to hospital ‘trials’, medications, surgeries, drugs, that are not yet approved. These children, as wards of the state, are guinea pigs without a voice. After the hospital is done, the child is put up for adoption. And given that the birth rate in the US has been dropping precipitously each year for the last five plus, there is a shortage of adoptees. Supply and demand – and the value of the child/ward goes up to $25,000 plus, and that too is all gravy for the state.
Children are thus a commodity traded and sold.
Fifty states, a billion profit each, that doesn’t give the government much incentive to challenge the business model.
The initial call is generally made by a doctor at a hospital who sends a red flag to the Social Services Department. In none of the cases, are the parents made aware of what is about to happen. In none of the cases, are the parents made to understand what was wrong. Sometimes, it is alleged that the hospital calls in DSS because they are concerned they will be charged malpractice. Sometimes, it is because the parents simply want a second opinion. At any rate, once Social Services are called, there is no backing out, they immediately abduct the child/children. The child immediately becomes a ward of the state and all medical decisions are made by the state. They child/children are sent to foster care homes and in some instances the children claim they have been sexually abused or physically abused.
When the hospital completes its trials and/or surgeries, typically, these children are adopted out to new parents. Sometimes parents are allowed ‘supervised’ visitation, most often they are denied.
In South Dakota, 53% of the entire state budget is allocated to Social Services. Their target, the Lakota native American Indians. Seven hundred native American children are removed from their households every year and put up for adoption. The parents are disallowed from ANY visitation for the first sixty days. After that, the children are instructed that during supervised visits, if they show any emotion toward their parents, all further visits will be discontinued. The children are all placed in either white homes or institutions.
This is not a story with isolated cases, in fact they occur in Norway and Canada as well. Allegations are similar. Apparently, a large number of these cases revolve around an initial hospital visit in which the child is misdiagnosed and suffers severe to life threatening side effects as a result of improper care. In a case that made headlines in Canada, the child was misdiagnosed and had severe side effects from the wrong treatment. Even though the child will soon turn 18, Canada’s Social Services has decided that Marc is a Person with Developmental Disabilities and therefore have remanded him to state care – for life.
Marc and his parents are German citizens. They moved to Canada because Germany does not allow home-schooling. Marc was home schooled. He will be placed under the care of a ‘Guardian’. His parents are not eligible to apply as Guardians because they are not Canadian citizens. But then neither is Marc. He writes this from his bed away from his twin brother, his dog, his mom and dad:
You can not see us, hear about us, you can not even hear our cries
We are not allowed to talk about our pains
We are not allowed to talk to our parents freely
We are not allowed to inform the police even
And if so they do not listen to us because our Guardian is the States
They can do whatever they want with us
Once we die, you may hear about us but even then you may not know why we died or how we died
We are the children whom the government legally apprehended and detained in places where we are alone without love, compassion, empathy, freedom and justice
Please help us by standing up for truth and justice
Please show us a family court where there is justice for children and families Please show us a family court where judges listen to us
Our Best interest should not be assumed by adults who do not even know the truth or do not want to know the truth
We may be weaker than adults but are we not here to be guided by a hand which shows us that this world is a beautiful place?
Since we are taken away from our families, all we see is that “Money, Power, Injustice and Lies rule the world” –
