Back in May, Natalya Shutakova was interviewed by well-known American author, Erik Metaxas. Four months later Natalya and her husband are still waiting for the return of their children who were taken from them by the Norwegian “Child Welfare Services” (Barnevernet) for no good reason whatsoever.
This request appeared on Natalya’s Facebook page on Sept. 6th:
“Urgent prayer request. Dear friends and family many of you know our fight to get our children back is still on. This week Monday to Friday we ask you to lift up prayers as we go into yet another court. Blessings to all.”
It seems that the latest court decision will be made in a few weeks. The results of that court decision will be noted here as soon as it is made public.
Natalya’s children are American citizens. Like Eric Metaxas, I am shocked and angered at this kind of intrusion into family life in Norway.
Please pray that these children are returned to their loving parents soon.
It is May 20, 2021. I have been watching Natalya’s Facebook page and she and her husband have been allowed visits with their children in the past few months. I do not know the arrangement that has been made with them by the Norwegian Child Welfare Services but it is obvious that they haven’t retained custody of the children that they love so much. Here are a few pictures from Natalya’s Facebook page:
