After years of infertility, Amy Kehoe and her husband decided to construct her own child using reproductive technology. She handpicked a gestational carrier, an egg donor and sperm donor, all the pieces needed for her and her husband to have a baby of their own. During this process, the Kehoe's paid for all the medical procedures because "under Michigan's law, commercial surrogacy is punishable by five years in prison and a $50,000 fine" (Michigan HRC).

Foster Care: Do You Have a Little Love to Share?

As National Child Abuse Propaganda month comes to an end, National Foster Contractor Glorification Month begins.

This is the one month of the year, where the Child Protective Industry honors it's warehousing division and focuses on recruitment and child liquidation campaigns by promoting the wrong message of "Love" and "Happily Ever After" to desperate infertile's, child loving loony tune's and parent bashing, self-righteous hypocrites of all shapes and sizes.

And we here at Legally Kidnapped will join right in on the fun and festivities and continue exposing the child protective industry for what it really is.

Thanks to our System Suck friends over at Families Supporting Adoption who have generously provided us with a great list of System Sucks to mess with in a post entitled, Foster Care: Do You Have a Little Love to Share?

And you can make a little money too!

Troubled Adoptions: Why? What to do?

Troubled Adoptions: Why? What to do?

In recent weeks there has been a fair amount of attention given to troubled adoptions. This has, in turn, been unsettling to individuals with infertility who ultimately are considering adoption as an option for future parenthood. The media's attention to the mid-April return to Russia of 7 year old Artem Saveliev by his Tennessee adoptive mother has ballooned beyond this one situation to a host of articles and TV coverage on "adoptions gone sour." The formal term for the ending of a legal adoption is "disruption," but the stories behind these unanticipated family sorrows are causing many readers to think more carefully about the possible risks associated with adoption. So why might an adoption become problematic? And when it does, what resources do adoptive parents have?

Note: It's a new child marketing angle. Step right up! Get a kid! Satisfaction guaranteed. If it don't work out, return them.

Of course, that would be a much more complicated process for real parents.

Fight The New World Order with Global Non Compliance



Understand your enemy, and understand the weapons they use. Then use those same weapons against them. The money system is the head of the snake. Cut the head off the snake and the rest of it will whither and die. There need be No violence, no guns, no banners, no slogans, no group think, just a united act of global non compliance. Remember that it is much easier to fight for principles than to live up to them and it takes a far braver man to stand up for what is right and spit in the face of authority than it does to blindly follow orders due to fear of the consequences. Understand that we are all one and the key to real change and unity in this world lies with love. It is time for the people of the world to stop and realise that the divisions that supposedly exist amongst us are an illusion. There IS NO division and its time for everyone to understand the truth of this. It is through the constantly promoted illusion of division that the system is able to function but in order for it to do so, it needs public compliance. Stop complying with it and you will shut it down. Its time for us all to collectively stand together and address the root cause of the problems. Everyone.

Dead boy's neighbor: 'I called CPS ... Nothing happened.'

Sheriff's deputies are still investigating the suspicious death of a 4-year-old Bakersfield boy.
----
Meanwhile, several people who say they knew the little boy had been worried about his safety and even went as far as calling Child Protective Services.

Note: Now here's one of my favorite tricks that the media and the Child Protective Industry is able to spin-doctor and utilize to their advantage. The good old, "I called CPS and they didn't do anything" trick. This reduces to, "CPS didn't do enough to protect that one child." Which in many cases is impossible for them to do, but the sheep expects otherwise and cry out against the agencies, which in the end becomes financially beneficial to the agencies and to the System Sucks.

Workers typically have their own response to such a claim against them. The old faithful, "We're damned if we do and damned if we don't," argument. A few have even uttered these very words in the comments section of Legally Kidnapped. And still my answer is the same...

These idiots can't get it right either way.

You know, it's not our fault that workers are incompetent, it's not our fault that truly abusive parents are able to fool them into believing that nothing is wrong, when in fact there is, and it's certainly not my fault that these reporters can't seem to say the right things on their phone call to the hotline so that they get screened out. And perhaps with the proper eduLKtion, someday the world will come to realize that not every child will be saved. The truth is not always easy to accept. But it is the truth. So you do what you can, right?

CPS will eventually respond to the public outcry by saying that they don't have enough resources and the great broke state of California or the county, whatever will be forced to pump in more money.

Thus they will be able to take more kids into foster care.

The monitor described the way Gagadoc used his utensils – which is the traditional way Filipinos eat – as “eating like a pig.” The school principal advised Gagadoc’s mother, Maria Theresa Gallardo, to teach him how to eat like a Canadian, by using a fork and knife instead.

Local mom says foster parenting very rewarding

What would make a person who worked with kids all day long want to become a foster parent, some might wonder.
Yes, I've often wondered that myself. Just what is it that makes one want to be a foster parent?
Caputa didn’t find the question at all baffling. She said that most people become foster parents because of love.

“People become foster parents because they have so much love to give and the children who come into foster care need so much love. It’s such a good match,” she said.
And you can make a little bit of money doing it too.

She goes on to say...
It’s not easy being a foster parent. Caputa said, adding that there are challenges around every corner, but love overpowers the negative.


This certainly isn't normal.

Best Buy And the Providence Journal Team Up To Support and Promote Child Welfare Fraud!

On the surface articles like this appear to be a good thing promoting a noble cause and presenting a good time for all involved. To the untrained mind, however, (ie those of you out there who have never as much experienced the trauma of having a Child Protective Worker preform one of their state sponsored anal-probes on you or your family), you're much more likely to jump on the bandwagon and pledge your support for such a noble cause as child abuse prevention, without as much as a clue that you are just as likely to be falsely accused of child abuse as any other innocent victim of CPS.

Well let me state this as clearly and directly as I can. I have no problem with one persons or organizations efforts to raise awareness for a good cause such as the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

What I take issue with is the Child Protective Industries practice of presenting faulty data in effort to misrepresent the numbers so that the problem appears to be much worse then it actually is. So on one hand I applaud the efforts of anybody who actually wants to keep kids safe, but since the presented information promotes a lie, I am required to expose.

So here's a Child Abuse Propaganda Month article that I just came across from Rhode Island...
Wii tournament at Best Buy raises money for Prevent Child Abuse Rhode Island

WARWICK –– A bag of popcorn in his left hand and a nervous smile on his face, Caden Paiva took aim at the bull’s-eye.

The 6-year-old Cranston boy swung his right arm forward, launching the ball toward the dunk tank on the 52-inch television screen. It missed the target by inches.

Without a word, he shrugged off the errant throw, knowing that Sunday night’s Wii carnival would offer many more opportunities for fun.

“We haven’t done anything like this before,” said Steven Faison, general manager for the Bald Hill Road Best Buy that hosted the event, where children and store employees alike competed in a video game carnival to help stop child abuse.

The Wii tournament offered Paiva the chance to win gift certificates to local restaurants and spas. But its primary purpose was to help raise awareness and money for the local nonprofit organization Prevent Child Abuse Rhode Island.

“People are tired of golf tournaments and wine tastings,” said Katherine M. Begin, the nonprofit’s executive director. “I said, ‘We have to do something different.’ ”

Different indeed. A dozen contestants took turns throwing darts and balls at carnival stands that existed only on the massive television screens arranged near the front of the store, which stayed open more than two hours late to host the event. Fifteen employees volunteered their time to offer face painting, free popcorn, and to help run the games.

“We were blown away by their generosity,” Begin said of Best Buy, which also donated $1,000 to her organization.

State and federal lawmakers have designated April as “National Child Abuse Prevention Month.”
And what a long winded, buttering you up for the bullshit, type of introduction that was for a single paragraph of bullshit...
In 2009, Rhode Island officials investigated 2,075 child abuse or neglect allegations involving 2,962 children, according to the advocacy group Rhode Island Kids Count. Nearly half the victims were under 6 years old, while a third were 3 or younger.
Now, not to beat a dead horse or anything, but the numbers presented here are not representative to the actual number of victims of child abuse or neglect. What this article states is the number of child abuse allegations that were investigated, the number of children involved in such investigations, and the general ages of the children who were investigated. The article fails to state how many of these investigations were actually substantiated, where child abuse or neglect had in fact occurred. The article gives no indication whatsoever that approximately 70% of child abuse investigations in the United States are closed as unsubstantiated, enabling you, the sheep, to presume that if Rhode Island follows the same trends as the rest of the country, that the actual child abuse rates are much less then what is presented here.

Therefore Best Buy and the Providence Journal provides you with faulty data to promote Child Welfare Fraud by not so much fluffing the numbers, but instead presenting the wrong numbers as indicators of the actual rate of child abuse and neglect in the tiny state of Rhode Island.

And once again the presentations blows the issue out of proportion, by presenting a single paragraph of bullshit in what would otherwise be an article about good people having a good time and supporting a good cause.

Texas program gives kids a say in picking foster home

On 6 acres just off Interstate 35 in Denton live 60 of the state's most troubled children.

A lifetime of severe abuse, neglect and rejection has made them suicidal, assaultive, even hypersexual.

They are too broken -- and in many cases, too dangerous -- to live in a foster home right now.

Note: But they don't tell you that being bounced around from foster home to institutional setting has a pretty negative effect on these kids as well.

Abuse cases push Fresno Co. CPS to breaking point

Whenever there's a month designated to honor some line of bullshit, such as Child Abuse Propaganda Month, many stories in honor of such lines of bullshit are presented to the sheep in effort to raise awareness for the cause. However, the biased and one sided nature of such presentations are often lacking in fairness and truth, are presented in absence of fact, and are designed to take advantage of the emotions of good people, thus creating a culture of lies where the concept of Big Brother develops and grows right under your noses.

The following article is no exception.
Abuse cases push Fresno Co. CPS to breaking point

A bad economy has created a dangerous environment for many Fresno County children.
That is the first line in this article. And as it suggests, the Child Protective Industry is ready to do their part to make an already bad situation even worse.

The article continues on as many others would, by presenting a tidbit of factual information which includes a few numbers hardly presenting a big picture view.

Social workers received a record number of crisis calls alleging child neglect or abuse in Fresno County last year -- including one for a 1-year-old girl who died. Child Protective Services workers responded to 3,800 emergency referrals in 2009 -- a 15% jump over the previous year and the highest total in five years. Non-emergency referrals for child mistreatment were up last year, too.

The jump in Fresno County far exceeded the statewide trend. In the first 10 months of last year, the most recent period available, emergency referrals for child mistreatment across California were up 4% compared to the same period the year before.


The next line in the article is this.

The increase in Fresno County is related to the recession and greater concern about child abuse, county officials say.



And where does this greater concern about child abuse come from? Skipping ahead a bit, we receive somewhat of an explanation...
Abuse and neglect referrals have gone up for two reasons, according to Huerta and Andrea Sobrado, head of CPS. One factor is the January 2009 death of Seth Ireland, which created greater concern in the community about child abuse, they said. Seth was allegedly beaten to death by his mother's boyfriend, Lebaron Vaughn, after CPS and other agencies received earlier reports about alleged abuse. Vaughn and Seth's mother, Rena Ireland, face criminal charges in Superior Court and are scheduled for a hearing Thursday.
Step 4 - The Child Protective Industry clicks in to Public Relations Repair mode, where they cry about being overwhelmed and under-resourced.

Step 5 - The government pumps more money into the Child Protective Industry.

Step 6 - Repeat. Grow the business.

Please see: http://www.localgov.co.uk/index.cfm?method=news.detail&id=88152

The other reason for the increase is the recession, Huerta and Sobrado said.

In Fresno County, unemployment rose from 10.5% in 2008 to 15.1% last year -- one of the highest rates in the state.

"We're in hard economic times and we've got unemployed parents," Huerta said. "People aren't able to meet the bills. The stress level is huge."

Losing a job is a traumatic event that can become a trigger for child abuse, Sobrado said.


And here is where you should really be concerned. The economy is a very real problem. Good and hard working people have fallen on hard times and there aren't enough resources allocated to help them make it through. Good and hardworking people have been loosing their homes to foreclose. Good and hardworking people can't make the bills. And this bitch is Goddamn right when she says that, "The stress level is huge," and rightly so. But does the Child Protective Industry make it any better for them? No! They come along, accuse you of abuse or neglect, and take the kids away forcing them to get lawyers, and shrinks who suck them dry. So according to this bitch...

Poverty and Hard Times = Child Abuse and Neglect.

So I really hope all of these Self-Righteous Hypocrites loose their own jobs someday so that they can be put into the same position.

The Indiana Child Liquidation Method

So late last night, I commented on the Michigan Heart Gallery which puts hard to place foster children on display for everybody to see, and today, I come across one of these heartwarming sucker you in with love kind of bullshit articles that really just makes you want to puke because anybody who knows anything about this issue should clearly be able to see that they are sending the wrong message in an effort to sucker people into their little scam.

And be it Child Abuse Propaganda Month, I am somewhat obligated to celebrate by continuing to point out the bullshit that they present so carefully in an effort to manufacture public support for their cause.

Also, before I give you the link to this article, I would like you to watch a quick video and keep it in mind when reading the article below, because I once again have uncovered a very special kind of foster parent which I would like to point out to you, which I like to call the Loony Tune.



I trust you found that entertaining.

Now I present to you the article which brings about another child liquidation method which I must translate into reality point by point.

Local mother to talk about Indiana Adoption Program

Oh, the life of the only child. Days filled with parental attentions basking your way at the drop of a hat, having your own bedroom and never having to worry about anyone else messing with your toys.
Translation to Reality: Ok now this one starts off a little weird. But it is one of the methods they use to butter you up for the punchline.
Is this a sign of heaven on earth, or what?
Translation to Reality: Remember what your childhood was like?
"Man, it was boring," said Chandra Ford, an only child. "There was no one else to play with, I was lonely and I was just bored. I would have loved to have another brother or sister. That's part of the reason I became a foster parent. I didn't want my son to have to go through all that boredom."
Translation to Reality: I'm an infertile who so desperately wants a large family. I'm using my son as an excuse.
Ford's son, Joshua, 10, doesn't have to worry about all the potential alone time now that the Fords haven't only fostered area children, but are in the processing of adopting one.
Translation to Reality: Foster Parenting gives potential adopters the ability to pick and choose.
Unable to have any more children biologically, the Fords decided to focus their enthusiasm toward finding the right siblings for their son and opening their home to children in need.
Translation to Reality: See? Infertile and desperate for more children to have and to hold and to hug and to love and to call George.
And they encourage other families to do the same.
Translation to Reality: And here we get to the point of such a dramatic presentation of the desperation of this particular infertile who wants your kid of her own to (as stated above). Now I don't mean to be hard on women who are unable to have children of their own. Just those who make a point of using their own stories of being suckered into the Child Protective Industries warehousing to liquidation program so that they can sell the same line of bullshit to other Looney Tunes to have your kids of their own to...

Therefore this person's story is fair and open game.
Chandra is the Delaware County representative for the Indiana Foster Care and Adoption Association, an organization that serves adoptive and foster families throughout the state.
Translation to Reality: These people want to sell your children who they have failed in the foster care system.
With the help of her connection with the Indiana Department of Children, Ford has organized a presentation in Muncie to encourage families to adopt children in the Indiana Adoption Program, the state's public adoption program for children in the foster care system.
Translation to Reality: Alongside the Product Acquisition Team (Dept. of Children) who provides a steady flow of incoming product...
Currently, 300 children are in the adoption program, 80 percent of whom are older than 7 years old. Traditionally, couples interested in adoption, whether with the help of public state-funded programs or through private attorneys, prefer infants and toddlers.
Translation to Reality: Sold out of babies, these are the leftovers.
Presentations like Ford's can go a long way toward educating the public about loving older children and teenagers who are still in a need of a safe, caring home.
Translation to Reality: Presentations like Fords help to sucker in people like you.
"People sometimes think that the longer a child stays in foster care, the greater the emotional problems they have and that's not true," said Angela Kiste from IFCAA. "It doesn't mean they come with more emotional baggage. They simply need a family that loves them as they are."
Translation to Reality: Lie and sucker them in with a guilt trip. What they want though, is their real families.
The Ford family has long loved their foster brothers and sister as they are, welcoming them into their family at any age.
Translation to Reality:


But in terms of adoption, the family was looking more for school-aged children.

The 3 a.m. feedings, the constant crying and the regular diaper changes don't interest Chandra Ford one bit.She's been there, done that, and hopes to never do it again.

That doesn't mean she doesn't want another child, though. And it doesn't mean she's not interested in a little more love to spread in her home.
Translation to Reality: She's lazy.
"I love children, I really do," Ford said. "And there are so many children of different ages out there that can add so much to our lives."


Translation to Reality:

A Special Message from the Michigan Child Liquidation team.

Here is an article that I just came across from the great broke state of Michigan. A state which has stolen so many children, that they don't have the resources to house them all. So what do they do? Liquidate the assets. What a solution.

Michigan Heart Gallery Features Faces of Foster Kids

Lets take a look at this article point by point.
Hundreds of Michigan children have a simple wish. All they want is a family that they can call their own.
Translation to reality: They want their real families. Dreams of forever homes being pumped into their heads.
Friday marked the grand opening of the Michigan Heart Gallery. It offers a chance to be introduced to some of Michigan's children who are waiting and hoping for a home.

Translation to reality: The Heart Gallery is the Showroom Floor of the Adoption Industry. Picture displays of children stuck in the system. Don't let em fool ya. It's all about the incoming cash and the ability to present what is often misinterpreted as a positive outcome.

Smiling, laughing, serious, siblings, daughters, sons -- what these children all have in common is the need for a forever family.

Translation to reality: What these children all have in common is that they were screwed out of their family ties by the all wise and knowing babystealers of Michigan's Child Protective Industry.

"To have a family is one of the most important things," said Heidi Raubenolt with Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange. "Kids need support in their lives."

Translation to reality: "Although having ties to their family is important, we over at the Child Protective Industry thought it best to screw these kids out of their real families and fail them even further by bouncing them around through the foster care system and screwing them up so bad that nobody wants them anymore. Now we're making one last desperate attempt to present our work as a positive effort in these kids lives."

The Michigan Heart Gallery pairs professional photographers with waiting kids.
Translation to reality: So we're gonna pretty the kids up for the day and take their pictures.

More than 4,000 Michigan children are in the foster system. 500 are waiting to be adopted. Many of them are ten and older and harder to place. They may have siblings or special needs, but they have so much to give.

Translation to reality: Then we gonna throw in the fluffed numbers, and present all the challenges that the sucker parents are gonna face, and top it off with the heartwarming love giving bullshit that you're gonna get from a RAD child every time!

"A lot of love, a great sense of humor, energy. They're amazing kids. They really are," Raubenolt said.

Translation to reality: We fucked them up pretty bad, but they're all better now and ready to move into your home as soon as we can preform our process on you.

Each year, 500 children age out of Michigan's foster care system when they turn 18. On their own with little support, some end up homeless or in jail. That is just one of the reasons it is so important to get them out of the system and into loving homes.

Translation to reality: The Guilt Trip Tactic employed. And you can make all the difference in the world.

"There is a new generation coming that... aren't paid attention to that will become problematic. So, why not pay attention to our future now and not have to pay a price for it later on," said Edd Snyder with the Charles H. Wright Museum.

Translation to reality: Guilt Trip Tactic Shot 2 employed.

The Heart Gallery will travel the state showcasing some of the many Michigan children who may just be waiting to join your family. The exhibit will be at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History until May first.

Translation to reality: So we're gonna put them on display and hope to liquidate. Coming to a town near you.

Just a quickie lesson in how to spot bullshit people.

This from the quick research of our beloved Beverly Tran

Beverly: The median income for a household in the county was $29,492, and the median income for a family was $35,321. Males had a median income of $26,123 versus $20,275 for females. The per capita income for the county was $14,947. About 15.20% of families and 19.20% of the population were below the poverty line, including 25.30% of those under age 18 and 12.30% of those age 65 or over.
