I just wrote a little blog about the monkey turning two!
oh my gosh i didn't know that was his story!!
here is what is on facebook for those of you who aren't there:
Please. This is actually important.
Today at 1:35pm
I know I already shared this link but I wanted to put a little more into it. This is possibly the most important thing you'll read today, not because of anything I've said but because there is an entire family whose lives are being destroyed and you might be able to help stop it.
This is a news story on KATU's website about a friend who has had her children/siblings literally kidnapped from school by DHS as a step to get them back into an abusive home they fled two years ago.
Just read the story and try to imagine if this were you. I know none of us knows where to start even thinking about how this can be made right but believing that knowledge is powerful we can at least not let this disappear.
I would love if just one of my friends would write an email to the Oregon and Virginia DHS expressing their disgust. I would love it more if we could make an effort to bring this to the attention of some people that might be able to do something about this.http://blumenauer.house.gov/
This is Earl Blumenauer's Congressional Information page. He represents Oregon's third district, which includes Portland. Get on there and write him a letter, then write it again.http://www.house.gov/wu/index.shtml
This is David Wu's. He's in Oregon's first district that has Beaverton etc, so he'd probably be interested since I believe the kids were taken from an address in his district.
This should put you in touch with Jeff Merkley, one of Oregon's two senators.
And this is Ron Wyden, who is the other.
I don't know where in Virginia the kids have been taken, personally, but I've also included information on contacting Virginia's senators.
let me reiterate
Take the time to write a letter to even just one of these people. Include a link to the story on KATU's website and let them read it for themselves then just ask to do the same thing I've asked all of you. Ask them to imagine if it were them and no one would even speak to them to tell them what possible course of action they could undertake. Ask them if they can live with that.
These kids were in a safe place with someone who truly, deeply loves them. Don't let that be taken away. This is probably the only chance these kids will ever have at being happy and growing into someone positive.
