We Are All Parents. Yes?

One of the latest emails from the Parental Rights Organization bring up so very good points on being a parent is everyone and anyone raising our children. So check out some of the thoughts below from this email.

And perhaps reflect on the logo of the National Family Advocacy Team for
Our Families, Our Children, Our Future

Our Logo
Or, better yet, ask yourself "Why hasn't the Parental Rights Amendment Passed Already?"

Keeping in mind that one of the 4P's of Family Advocacy is "PERSONAL" since everyone of us, including Politicians, have had a Family sometime in their life, yes?
May you find strength in our Higher Power,

So check out this recent email from the Parental Rights Organization>>>>


-- August 18, 2015
ParentalRights.org logoLike any other organization, ParentalRights.org got its start within one particular demographic. Founder Michael Farris and his leadership team already had certain allies, certain contacts, and a certain audience they could reach easily. So that’s the corner in which we started.

After a few years, I had a conversation with a colleague from ParentalRights.org’s “parent” organization who assumed our list of contacts was still pretty much a subset of their own. He was surprised to learn that by then (and this was years ago), a full 30% of our list had no connection to that original demographic.

And why should they? Parental rights are important to all, not just one small group.
A poll conducted by Zogby in 2010 revealed that Americans across the political spectrum agree with traditional parental rights. When presented with the statement that,
“In general, parents have the constitutional right to make decisions for their children without government interference unless there is proof of abuse or neglect,”:
  • 90.8% of Independents,
  • 92.4% of Democrats, and
  • 97.5% of Republicans
all agreed.
These days Republicans and Democrats agree on very few issues. But loving parents raising their children is an issue that every parent agrees with. This kind of like-minded support must be taken seriously.
Our Backgrounds
Parental rights supporters include parents like Maryanne Godboldo, a single black mother from Detroit who stood up to the police and child welfare services when they came to take her daughter from her home. And they include parents like Lou and Linda Pelletier, a middle class white family from Connecticut whose daughter was kidnapped by the Department of Child and Family Services in Massachusetts at the request of Boston Children’s Hospital because a doctor there disagreed with the teen’s existing diagnosis from another provider.
These families may come from entirely different backgrounds and social cultures. But they both love their children and want the legal power to do what is best to meet their daughters’ needs!
Standing Against the Law
Additional supporters include parents of all stripes who stood together in California this spring to oppose SB 277, a bill that has stripped away their authority to decide whether or not a vaccine is right for their child.
They also include parents opposed to Common Core, who recognize that removing public education decisions from the state and local level is just another way to keep parents out of any meaningful decision-making roles in the process.
The fact is, our supporters don’t fit into just one mold anymore. We are Democrats, Republicans, Independents. Some are wealthy, while some live well below the poverty line. We are Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Atheists, Pagans, and any number of other faiths – even those of no faith.
We are descended from Africans, Asians, Europeans, Polynesians, and indigenous Americans. We struggle with disabilities, or have children who do – or chronic or even rare diseases. We have gifted kids, struggling learners, and every kind of child in between.
And if I still haven’t named you yet, well, we include you, too!
But we are all parents. We are all in this together.
Promising Results
As an organization we have been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that this next introduction of the Parental Rights Amendment will have bipartisan support. And we are seeing promising results.
Last week, we shared a video with you that is designed to carry the message of parental rights to minority parents in urban neighborhoods. Recently our forays into the inner city are uncovering a virtual army of citizens passionate about parental rights who simply didn’t know we existed. They have been quick to relate to our message, and eager to join the common cause. They don’t look like me, worship like me, vote like me, or choose to educate their children as I do mine.
But they love their children. And they see too many times that bureaucrats are reaching in and infringing their parental rights. I don’t have to look like them or live among them to know I heartily agree with them.
We are all parents. We are all in this together.
Stand Together
Among good parents there are a lot of different ideas about parenting. And there are countless ways one parent can differ from another. Yet we are all the same in this: we don’t need bureaucrats to tell us how to love our children.
Thank you for standing with us, and for making room for others under this ever-broadening tent of Parental Rights.

Call for Entries: Fostering the Future 2016

 Yes each year there is Foster Care Awareness Month.


Each year Children's Rights runs a Daily Post of those Caught in the Middle while waiting for the Adults to establish a Permanent and Secure home for the Foster Child.
 So how well is the AGENCY doing?? Check this out, "Shame on U.S"..

HOWEVER, after sharing stories with many Foster Children and Foster Care Givers, a question keeps coming up:
"Why are Many of these Children even in Foster Care?"

We ALL must keep in mind and remember to even create the Child Protective AGENCY, they were given two main tasks:
  • Protecting Children
  • Strengthening Families
with NO Particular Priority of either. (Refer to the History of CAPTA)

So we do encourage all those, who have been in Foster Care to, Yes share your experiences.

Maybe this will open the Eyes of the Public, who can not see the Big Picture that in the Scheme of Things it is about:
Our Families, Our Children, Our Future

But forget there are many Foster Children waiting for ADULTS to find solutions for the Child's safe, secure, and strong family.

Noting still too many don't realize that over 80% of the issues are about neglect, and most of these are those families that are having a hard time providing food, clothing and shelter. However, as part of Strengthening Families, the agency has been bond to assist by Making Reasonable Efforts to do so.

May you Find Strength in Your Higher Power,
GranPa Chuck
~~~~~~~~~~~~~So Please get your Entries in. Explained below~~~~~~

Do you, or someone you know, have a story to share about life in foster care? If so, Children’s Rights would love to hear it.

Children’s Rights is now accepting submissions for its 4th annual Fostering the Future campaign. The blog-a-day initiative, which takes place during National Foster Care Awareness Month, highlights the first-hand accounts of people who have experienced state care. Those interested in participating should email communications@childrensrights.org.

Past bloggers have used their stories to expose people across the country to the realities of foster care, and to inspire others still in state care.

“Giving young people the opportunity to reveal their experiences to the world is a profound and revolutionary thing,” said 2015 blogger Kristopher Sharp. “Fostering the Future provides youth who have been involved with the foster care system an important platform to educate the public while simultaneously giving them a forum to share their own truths.”

Julius Kissinger, a blogger from Ohio, called the opportunity “incredible.” “I chose to do this not only to share my story, but to inform people who are, or have gone through, similar struggles that there is hope, there is always hope,” he said.

Catherine Konold, a participant from Utah, said even though she was a little nervous to tell her foster care story, “I knew that it could help kids in similar situations.”

The project calls for people to submit a blog post of up to 750 words along with a high-resolution photo. The blog should, in some way, shape or form, address the following:
“How did going through foster care affect your life? Based on your experience, do you think foster care should change?”

If they wish, writers may want to consider addressing:
    • What they would say to other kids going through foster care
    • Who influenced them while they were in foster care
    • What are their best and/or worst memories of foster care
    • Any other issues related to foster care that they personally find important
Children’s Rights encourages a creative approach. As each person, and his or her experience, is unique, there is no template for the blogs. And while CR works to reform foster care, the organization strives to include all perspectives in Fostering the Future, including those who found their experiences to be positive and beneficial. The blogs, which will be promoted via CR’s Facebook and Twitter pages, will be housed on the organization’s website.

Blogs will be edited for length and clarity and submitting a blog does not guarantee it will be used.
If you have any questions, please email communications@childrensrights.org. You can check out blog posts from previous participants at http://fosteringthefuture.com.

"Aren't we worth more than the sum of our parts?"

YES, the issue of abortion and life will always be a HIGHLY Controversial Subject.

Myself, I am Pro-Choice. Will say that with this in mind and those Closest to Me have been
given the OPTION of Abortion.... AND, to this day each and everyone chose to bring their Baby to this Wild & Crazy world.

The following article does have that CONTROVERSIAL video.>>

Heartbeat President: "Aren't we worth more than the sum of our parts?"

 However, consider these points from the Article:
  • "While Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider with over 327,166 abortions reported in its 2012-13 annual report,......."
    Whether the body part thingy for profit or not, to me, that is of no consequence. How about YOU??
  • “Women deserve better than abortion,” Hartshorn said. “That is why pregnancy help centers, medical clinics, maternity homes and non-profit adoption agencies offer a mother all the information she needs to make the healthiest choice for everyone involved in an unexpected pregnancy.”
    ...............................>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Read Article
FINALLY, Our Staff of the National Family Advocacy Team are currently researching the VALIDITY of this CHECK LIST created in 1969 relating to "Population Control". One may want to take a moment to compare where we are TODAY?  >>> See the Table of 1969..ie The Controversial Jaffe Memo
The Truth is Always the TRUTH.  
So carefully do your homework to hopefully find the Truth were yes Controversy will be an issue.
HOWEVER, If one believes in 
Our Family, Our Children, Our Future ~ PRICELESS.
What is your Opinion??

Nuff Said, yes? For we are ALL responsible for our actions.
Whether it is an Alleged Leader; or Common Jane or Joe.
