NOW AND FOREVER OUR DAUGHTER…SEEING ARIA TODAY

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy

We had our two-hour visitation today with our precious little princess
It was again a wonderful meeting and we loved seeing her again. She seems to recognize us and was happy, very talkative and started playing with her mummy shortly after we arrived. We brought soap-bubbles she could play with, and she really thought this was funny. She wanted to put the bubbles into daddy and mommy’s mouth, laughing a lot We also brought a book with photos of us and her she can bring to the foster parents. It was really heartbreaking when Aria took the book, pointed at a picture of Vibeke and said “mummy”. She seemed quite independent of her confidence-person, and was not in need of any particular support from her. Continue reading “NOW AND FOREVER OUR DAUGHTER…SEEING ARIA TODAY”

A comparison of the culture between Australian and Norwegian child protection (CPS)

By Julian Chan

One problem which I have encountered both first hand and in reading comments from many parents who have had contact with a country’s CPS is in understanding what those authority’s expectations are regarding child development as well as the transparency of the processes. Here I have made a quick review of available material on Norway’s Barnevernet website as compared to the Western Australian Department for Child Protection.

bd7edb53-ea09-43d9-a8e1-bb46023654d6The Australian site appears appears to provide much more information to the public than the Norwegian counterpart, Barnevernet. It gives the definitions of child abuse and neglect, providing examples and signs for each category. They make their expectations about child development and signs of trauma clear, while also acknowledging that development is not an even, straight line.

If the state takes away your children do not complain – a short summary of the twenty-nine-page decision of the Norwegian court in the case of Eva Michalakova’s children. It is an utter impertinence to complain about the Barnevernet publicly.

The Case of Eva Michalakova – An Absurd Norwegian Decision

If the state takes away your children do not complain – a short summary of the twenty-nine-page decision of the Norwegian court in the case of Eva Michalakova’s children. It is an utter impertinence to complain about the Barnevernet publicly.

If you read carefully the decision of the Norwegian court you do not know what to think about it. If anyone expected the court to decide on the basis of some evidence, he was very wrong. All the court needs are the statements of the foster families and the Barnevernet saying that children are ok in their foster families and that they are simply not going back.
