It seemed to be the perfect happy ending for Nadia and her sweet little son Caspian. Caspian was taken by Norway’s Child Welfare System, barnevernet, in June of 2016. With the help of a good lawyer, international pressure, prayer and social media activities, Nadia won her case in September and Caspian came straight home.

They both stayed at Margaret and Dag Hennum’s home for a while, a lovely Christian couple, where they started to recover from the horrible trauma that Norway’s Child Welfare System had just caused in their lives. Even though the case was closed and Caspian was returned to his loving mother, barnevernet never apologised for their mistake.

In February 2017 Nadia moved to Ulsteinvik, looking forward to starting a new life. With her own new apartment and with a place for Caspian in a Kindergarten she was looking forward to finally leaving that dark chapter behind. Also, she was happy to establish new relationships with new people in the neighborhood who didn’t know anything about her past struggles with barnevernet. Everything seemed perfect, but things were about to change.

Margaret Hennum commented:

“It all started recently with a phone call that was listened to legally, and barnevernet was contacted about this. I’ve read this report and it states that Nadia said during the phone call that she had a headache.“

Two women from barnevernet with two policemen then showed up at Nadia’s new apartment. But Nadia wasn’t there because she was visiting friends. For several hours barnevernet were sneaking around the house like the former DDR-Stasi would and stayed until evening to see whether she would come home or not. They also interviewed the housekeeper about her parental skills. They even forced the owner of the house, helped by two policemen, to open Nadia’s apartment for them.

Once again they were violating Nadia’s rights. They didn’t have any legal grounds for these actions against her and what’s even worse they have again completely ruined both Nadia’s and Caspian’s whole new life. Barnevernet has totally destroyed her reputation and trust in the neighborhood​ and have terrorised her so much that Nadia had to cancel the apartment and Caspian’s place in the kindergarten.

Now, Nadia has to find a new place again to live.

Who is responsible for this never ending nightmare? It is barnevernet in Volda, and its leader Brynhild Solvang. And it is Anne-Beate Vartdal and Eva Andreassen Lynge who forced themselves into Nadia’s home, and it is Mr. Kyrre Grimstad. After this incident he wanted to force Nadia into a meeting but she was wise enough not to go. He left a message saying that barnevernet needs to know where she is, even though her case is closed. He also tried to contact Margaret and Dag Hennum in order to get hold of Nadia and Caspian. It is Mr. Grimstad who is responsible for not letting this mother and child live a normal life.

Shame on him and shame on Norway for not following standard legal procedures and for not respecting Human Rights and for causing so much pain in peoples lives.

Nadia and Caspian’s Fight for Freedom – PART 1

Nadia’s first encounter with Norway’s Child Welfare System, barnevernet, was when she was 13 years old. Nadia was forcefully removed from school, separated from her siblings, put into an institution, which sadly didn’t help her but in fact, made her teenage years far worse.

“I have never received any real help from the child welfare system in Norway, they have destroyed my life and we have never met again as a whole family ever since,” says Nadia.

Several years later, in her late twenties, Nadia gave birth to a baby boy called Caspian (Dec 2015). And what Nadia feared most was soon to be realized. Barnevernet approached her again and threatened to take her baby away from her unless she would be willing to submit herself together with Caspian, into a mother’s home.

If you’re not Norwegian you might think that this is a place where mothers and their children are being properly cared for. But many Norwegians and international observers call these places “Horror homes for mothers”. These are the institutions where mothers and their babies are being observed and tested under stressful situations. For example, does the mother have sufficient eye contact with her baby? This is also a place with no privacy because of 24/7 Video surveillance.

Nadia was forced to stay in two of these mother’s homes even though the child welfare’s decision was not based on any legal ground. The people responsible in barnevernet didn’t have the authority from a judge which would have authorized them to put Nadia into such a place.

But sadly, Nadia didn’t know this – she was so afraid of losing her son forever, because of her own experience.

In May 2016, Nadia and Caspian left the mother’s home and found refuge at Margaret and Dag Hennum’s home. Margaret is a pediatric nurse and all her life she has been professionally working with Children. She lovingly observed Nadia and wrote reports which showed that Nadia is a loving and capable mother.

A few weeks later, on June 13th the unimaginable happened: Case workers, along with five policemen stormed the house and in true 1930’s Nazi or former DDR Stasi style, removed little Caspian from his bed where he was sleeping peacefully. And once again there were no legal grounds for this cold and calculated operation.

No court orders were shown, no arrest warrants. The policemen actually admitted to Margaret that they don’t really understand the situation themselves and that they’re only following orders.

The next few weeks Nadia lived in constant fear of permanently losing her son. She had occasional visitation rights and a lawyer started to work on her case.

This particular case caused a lot of awareness on social media and within a short time Nadia and Caspian became well known around the world. It doesn’t happen very often in Norway that Children are returned, when they have been unfairly taken, but with the help of a lawyer and through international pressure, with both prayer and social media activities, Nadia won her case. On 12 Sept 2016, Caspian finally came home to mummy.

In this same month, Nadia participated at the “Save the Children” symposium in Vienna. Check out this Video of Nadia and Margaret sharing details of the case:

(Nadia and Caspian are featured at the very beginning and at approx. the 9 minute mark.)

This may sound like a happy ending, but unfortunately it’s not. Norway’s child welfare never apologized to Nadia and now, a year later, they’re making life very difficult for them again.

Part two continues the story of Nadia and Caspian’s fight for freedom.

For those of you who read many updates here about the story of the young Norwegian Mother, Nadia, who successfully fought the “Child Protection Services” (NCWS) of her own country to rightfully raise her son, these two posts condense the story and explain the continued harassment she receives to this very day. For those who didn’t read the updates, you will find the behavior of a “first world” country described in this report shocking. I have kept up with Nadia’s situation and have thought more than once about asking her if I could write another update. Her case has become very well known. The reports are written by a Christian man who lives in Austria who has worked tirelessly to help publicize stories like Nadia’s. I am grateful that he has allowed me to republish his articles here.

All My Soul Needs ~

Another gem by Deborah Ann…

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want nothing more
then the joy and glory
for me He has in store.

He satisfies my thirst,
my hunger He fills
my anxiety and fears
He calms and stills.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want not a thing
for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.

He is my saving Light,
He is my High Rock
I’m so blessed to be
a part of His flock.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
there’s nothing I lack
my faith in Him is all . . .
He want’s me to give back!

I shall not want.”

The Diana Fritillary…a Miracle of God

August 4, 2017

Photo by Cathle Bird

It has happened again. I have once again been reminded of God’s love in such a simple way. You see, I was busy doing yard work. Where I live, if you are in charge of a yard of almost any size, there is no need for a membership to one of those health clubs. All that is necessary is a few hours of outside summer work, not that vigorous mind you, and the pounds will melt away. Well, I was sweating away and there it was. I wasn’t looking for it but it couldn’t be missed. A butterfly landed just a few feet from where I was working. There was no option but to stop what I was doing and take in the beauty of the small creature. He sat there for minutes, working his wings slowly back and forth. Did he/she know I was watching him/her?

I don’t know a lot about butterflies, but whenever this happens everything else stops and God comes to mind. Did God send this butterfly to remind me of his mercy and glory? I don’t know but it always has that effect.

I had seen this type before but, just like people, they are all different. This one had a bit more orange at the edge of its wings than I have seen before. It was decided that the name of this type of butterfly would be researched.

How can one not appreciate this awesome creation of God? There is a great debate whether it even is a creation of God. I have never understood that question but atheists and theologians spend hours on why people like me don’t understand the debate.

The butterfly is like many things in life, it can be seen for its simpleness or for its complexity. There is nothing wrong with the two but humans tend to either under or overthink things. I’ve found an attempt at staying somewhere in the middle keeps me sane.

It is important to come to a conclusion about the origin of the butterfly. What one thinks about it will affect one’s entire view of the world. The butterfly reminds me that the Gospel message has levels of complexity. That God loved us enough to send Jesus to pay for our sins is something that most children can get some sort of grasp on. Yet, theologians spend hours on just how God has saved us. There are certainly enough questions on subjects like, justification, sanctification, free-will, predestination, evil, heaven, hell, and the list goes on and on and is enough to keep any student of the Bible busy for a lifetime.

There are those who think the butterfly is the result of some sort of evolutionary process. They spend hours and hours trying to figure out ways that it could have appeared.

The butterfly makes things simple for me for a wonderful moment of time. All the questions disappear in appreciation of the alluring little glider. The focus is on the creation. It moves so peacefully and seems so delicate. Then I remember the complex process the small critter went through to take its current form. Anyone who has read much of this blog knows my opinion. Like the butterfly, Christians are the result of a creative process that continues until the day we die. There is a God. We have been created in His image. God loves mankind so much that he sent his only begotten Son to die so that we might live.

I thank God for that little butterfly.

Note: The butterfly that was seen today is known as The Diana Fritillary, the Official State Butterfly of Arkansas.

Join the Global Facebook Challenge: Norway, return Tyler to Amy

July 20, 2017

For the second year in a row, the effort to raise awareness about a stolen American Child is taking place. I am joining the effort for the second year now and, oops, my picture from this challenge from last year is still up on Facebook. I plan to change it sometime in the next week. Thank you to my FB friend and brother in Christ Bjo Ern for all of the effort he has put into helping this loving mother get her son back. Here are Bjorn’s simple directions if you wish you be a part of a growing protest:

On July 23rd 2013 the Norwegian Child Welfare Services took Tyler away from his loving mother Amy Jakobsen over a breastfeeding issue. States have no right to permanently remove Children from their families without compelling reasons in extraordinary circumstances.

On July 23rd 2017 (this Sunday) let’s tell Norway to return the boy where he belongs:

1. Print out the PDF sign “Norway return Tyler to Amy”. Have a picture of you taken with it, and then publish it as your Facebook profile picture. Important: add the Hashtag #FreeTyler and tag the Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, so that she would get aware of what’s happening on that day.

Get the PDF sign here (right click, save as):
https://freetylercom.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/freetyler_poster.pdf

2. Invite your friends to this campaign (“invite” Button)

3. Write a post where you nominate at least two of your Facebook friends to participate.

Norwegian Officials Steal Another Baby From His Loving Parents

July 19, 2017

Photo from Steven Bennet’s Facebook page


By Steven Bennett

Norwegian couple, Sylvia (44) and Trond Rikard Ensby (40) thought that they would get some help when they stayed at a mother’s home in Norway, but instead, Norway’s Child Welfare System, barnevernet took away their precious baby boy, because he didn’t pass the baby IQ test.

The parents are a wonderful couple – AND ARE NOT criminals! There have a wonderful family around them as well, including Ruth, a heart broken grandmother who so dearly misses her only grandchild.

The court of appeal has now ruled that this mother and father will not see their precious baby boy again and their son has now been put up for adoption, without any of his relatives being considered.

There’s absolutely nothing in Sylvia’s history that says she had been diagnosed as mentally retarded. This is serious negligence in the system.

And, this is just one sick example that shows how Norway’s Child Welfare System, barnevernet is truly an evil, remorseless, oppressive, dysfunctional, child and family destroying system of terror!
Trond Rikard Ensby commented:

“Even though we were prepared, it was a shock to get the verdict, for us it is incomprehensible. The first few days after the sentence, I felt completely empty. The entire experience has been very tough, but we’ve been in it.”

Sylvia and Trond Rikard Ensby’s lawyer, Marie Sølverud is working on an appeal to the Supreme Court, and if necessary, they will proceed to the European Court of Human Rights. “We have nothing to lose and we must try all possibilities for our son’s sake.”

The couple’s lawyer, Marie Sølverud also states:
“It’s a very serious, sad and wrong judgment. The case will be appealed. I think it is hard to say anything about how the Supreme Court is going to deal with the matter. If it’s necessary, we will appeal to the ECHR (European Court of Human Rights).”

In the lawyer’s opinion, she strongly responded to the fact that the court did not take into account the reports of two expert psychologists, who believe the child should be returned to the parents.
Welcome to the Brave New World of Norway!
__________________________

My thoughts:

First, I would like to thank Steven Bennett for his unending battle to educate all of us about the evil Barnevernet (Norwegian Child Welfare Services). Steven is a Christian who lives in Austria and has become one of the best authorities on this subject outside of Norway.

Second, As events like this happen in Norway on a daily basis, I can’t say I’m surprised. Each new case, however, makes the Norwegian situation more horrific. As Steven has noted, this is evil, plain and simple.

Third, I saw Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, standing behind President Trump at the recent G-20 summit. It was a little over a year ago that an online protest about the Barnevernet ended up on Ms. Solberg’s FB page. Hundreds of complaints were “voiced” and continued to pour in until the post was completely deleted. It was a conversation that got a bit heated but it should have been allowed to remain as many articulated their feelings about the NCWS. The Leaders of Norway know the problem. It remains to be seen if enough Norwegians and pressure from outside of Norway will be able to end these evil decisions.

Last, I wish my Norwegian friends to know that they are in my prayers. The two Norwegian situations that I have followed here, Ken’s and Amy’s, remain unresolved. Both stories are tragic and are representative of so many other sad stories coming out of a country that is supposed to be “one of the happiest places to live.” For those of you who followed Nadia and Caspian’s story here, they are doing very well and Caspian is thriving in the presence of his loving mother.
