Wow. What can I say? This is such wonderful news. I am thankful to God for the many blessings He gives me each day. To come home from work and hear this news, makes this one of the best days I have had in a long time. I would like to thank everyone who prayed and who supported Nadia in any way. There are so many names of people who have been so supportive of Nadia that I don’t know where to start. If you want to see their names, You can go to her Facebook page to see many of them.

It looks like I will be wrapping up this story soon. I will probably put up some of the details that I learn about the decision or anything else that Nadia want’s me to share here. As time allows, I will share more personal thoughts about this story and about Norway’s Barnevernet. I am still sorting those thoughts out. I am so happy that she can now say, “Finally some fantastic news.”

God’s blessings…

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #14

August 26, 2016

Nadia and Caspian 8 26 2016

Nadia is heading home to Brandal after three days of trial at the County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda) in Bergen.
She has been told that she will get an answer about the custody of Caspian in two weeks. While Nadia waits for a verdict in the trial, her lawyer has been told that she will be allowed visitations. Nadia has asked for the four hours of visitation she missed this week in addition to the hours that she is being given before the upcoming decision.

————————

Nadia’s thoughts:

“I have a good feeling about the case,” Nadia said. She wished this update to be published so that people would know what is happening and hopes that people will continue to keep her and Caspian in their thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts:

I’m still learning about Barnevernet procedure. I had not heard from anyone about this two week wait until today. Nadia had mentioned to me a few days ago that she might have to wait a “week or so.”

When any information about the visitations becomes available, I will let you know.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #12

August 14, 2016

Caspian and Nadia August 12, 2016

Caspian and Nadia
August 12, 2016

Nadia was allowed to see Caspian for two hours on Thursday and for three hours on Friday.

Nadia has been given the reports from both visitations. They are much more detailed than previous reports. (Only a few changes in punctuation have been make.)

Visitation report Visitation between: Mother Nadia and Caspian

Date: Thursday, August 11, 2016

The mother came 10 minutes before and got the key to the apartment. We made an agreement that I would come in when the guardian (Barnevernet worker) came with Caspian. His grandma has become ill and will not be attending today. Y (Nadia’s friend and witness) has taken her place instead. Caspian arrives on time and I make an agreement with the guardian that he/she will stay with them until I come back (I was in a conversation over the phone).

At 10:15 the mother takes out a yoghurt that she will give to Caspian. She washes her hands, picks up Caspian at the same time as she finds the yoghurt(smoothie). “Oh how delicious!” she says as she feeds Caspian with a teaspoon. Caspian waves his hands in excitement and obviously enjoys the food. He stops and turns around to look at me as I sit on the opposite side of the table. The mother talks to him, and he shows he clearly enjoys the food he got. Caspian stop as he hears a bird. “What was that?” says the mother. “Do you hear a bird out there? I think maybe it is a crow.”

The mother says, “If I knew you where this hungry than I would have checked if you had a sandwich with you.” Y gets up to find the food Caspian had with him from the short term care home/stand by foster home. U.t. (the supervisor) gets up to make coffee and Caspian looks for me. The mother is wondering if Caspian is full and lays him down on the floor again. She sits down beside him and lets him explore on his own.

He crawls to the toy box with the big rubber puzzle game and the mother holds him so he can pick up a piece of puzzle from the box. Caspian gets up from the crawling. “Oy” says the mother. Caspian talks and gargles. He looks at his mother and crawls around her as he at the same time tries to get up in between. The mother sings “An elephant came marching…” while she solves the puzzle game (that becomes a big rubber mat). Caspian stops as he looks at his mom singing. Caspian gets to pick up the puzzle pieces as his mom keeps on assemble them.

Caspian makes happy sounds. The mother continues to sing as she tickles him. and Caspian laughs. She lifts him on to her lap and they study the toy box together. Caspian finds a blue balloon and his mom sings “I want a blue balloon…” Y’s phone rings and Caspian stops and look at him. Caspian crawls to a couple of playhouses and the mother follows. She says that she thinks she doesn’t know a song about horses. Y suggest’s “Fola fola blakken”, but than Caspian is busy with the train.

Mom sings “Nede på stasjonen/Down at the station…” Caspian crawls unto his mother’s lap. Mom drives the train around and Caspian watches. He looks at mom and smiles. He coughs a bit and his mom says “Maybe we should find some water?”. Y finds the bottle he brought and gives it to the mother. “How lucky we are to have a secretary with us to give us what we need”. Mom puts Caspian onto her lap and gives him a little water before Caspian wants to get down and crawl some more. He crawls onto his mother’s lap and wants her to lift him up. He makes a lot of sounds. Mom sings to him and Caspian hums with on his own. Nadia and Caspian 8 12 2016 visitation at Bergenf

Caspian crawls uneasy on the floor while babbling. He whines a little. Mom strokes him on the head and says “What a little charmer you are.” Mom wonders if she should find another yoghurt.” “You didn’t eat a lot,” she says. They get seated again and mom gives him more yoghurt. Caspian eats willingly and waves his arms. “Do you know what we talked about in the court case? What a nice and happy boy you are! That we all agree about.” “And still they say that he is uneven developed,” Y says. Caspian makes loud noises, smiles and looks at mom. Mom makes the same noises, he looks at her and smiles before he makes the same noises again. They talk like that for a while and Caspian laughs.

In between, Caspian bends forward, grabs his foot and tries to put it in his mouth. All of a sudden mom yells, there is a wasp buzzing around them. Y chases it out the window. Mom brings Caspian down with her on the floor and says she got good energy out of being around him today. Caspian crawls over to Y and Y takes his hands and picks him up and lets him play riding horse on his foot. He brings him onto his lap and Caspian grabs after his phone in his pocket. Y lets him hold it as he sits calmly on his lap. Caspian studies Y’s face and smiles at him. He tries to take Y’s glasses and Y says “No, these I want to keep in peace”. He puts Caspian down on the floor to his mom and mom puts on fake glasses. They continue to puzzle. Mom sings, “Maybe we should change the diaper soon?”

11:15:

Mom takes him with her to the bathroom to change the diaper. She comes out into the living room with him in only the diaper and sits down on the sofa with him. Caspian sits pleased in his mother’s lap while she plays with his naked feet before she starts to dress him in the rest of the clothes. Caspian looks pleased and starts to hum. They get down on the floor again. Caspian crawls under the table and to U.t.(the supervisor). He grabs after the toes to look at them (they have got nail polish on). Mom grabs him from under the table to pick him up.

Y says if he is going to eat the banana then… Mom carries him to Y. Y makes Donald noises and both see that Caspian is getting tired. Y’s phone rings and he walks out in to the hallway to talk. Mom carries him around on the floor while she lulls him. Caspian is quiet. Mom lays Caspian on the floor while she finds a dish and the banana. She addresses him while she mooshes the banana. Caspian whines. “Yes”… says mom compassionately.” Mom will hurry up..” and they get seated at the table again. Caspian waves his arms impatient. Mom sneezes and Caspian stops and looks at mom to than move his glance at the food again. Caspian starts to get uneasy on the lap. Mom gives him some banana and bread. They then finish the meal. Mom looks for the pacifier and finds it. She rinses it and gives it to Caspian. Mom walks with him in her arms and sings to him. Caspian sucks the pacifier calmly without a sound. Y takes pictures and Caspian looks at him seriously.

Ending: I tell them when it is 10 minutes left and mom continues to walk around with him. It is a calm and quiet atmosphere. I say that the doorbell might frighten him when the guardian arrives. Y offers to go out and look for Caspian’s guardian (Barnevernet worker). He goes down to open the door for her. Caspian is sleeping in his mother’s arms right before the guardian arrives. Mom continues to sing with him in her arms while she tidies the table after them. Y helps. She asks if he can check if there is something forgotten in the bathroom. Caspian’s guardian (Barnevernet worker) helps the mother to dress him while he sleeps. Mom has him sitting on the lap. She struggles a bit with getting the jacket on Caspian while he is sleeping on the lap. The guardian offers to put him on the thrust/puff but mom says she wants to do it like that.

Evaluation: A nice and maybe less hectic visitation. Even if Caspian is more active than usual. Mom follows Caspian and both are active on the floor. Caspian tries to get up several times and he “talks” right from the start this time. Mom sings to him and tries to find songs that matches the toys he find. Mom is calm in the voice and has full focus on Caspian through the whole visitation with an exception of when the wasp entered the room suddenly. Caspian is observant and catches all movement and sounds in the room. It seems as if he enjoys that mom responds when he makes sounds. No drug use suspected.

Friendly regards, Xxxxxx

Nadia and Caspian  8 11 16 visitation b cropped
Visitation report Visitation between: Mother Nadia and Caspian

Date: Friday, August 12, 2016

Mother and grandmother arrive 10 minutes before and I let them into the apartment. After I have greeted the grandmother, I inform her a little about my role. Caspian arrives with the guardian 5 minutes before and I help them in and up into the apartment. The mother stands ready in the door of the apartment and the grandmother a little in the background.

Caspian smiles at his mom and mom receives him in her arms. I couldn’t quite observe if he reached for mom with his arms cause I was standing behind the guardian. Caspian is in his mother’s arms when she says “You know grandmother?” Grandmother thinks he doesn’t recognize her. “They remember better than you think” says mom. Mom is wondering where they are on the sleeping and eating schedule. He ate when he woke up earlier (a little past 7:00 am?) and she doesn’t think he has had food after that.

Grandmother bought a wooden train for Caspian that they have packed beforehand. Grandmother sits on the sofa and Mom and Caspian on the floor. Caspian crawls around and climbs onto mom’s lap. Grandmother eventually moves down to the floor and participates in the game for a while. Caspian tries to get up and Nadia says “See? He’s getting up!”

10:09 am:

Mom begins to prepare food and grandmother sits a bit on the floor with Caspian. He plays with a pan set sitting on the floor and grandmother gets seated back on the puff. “Look how nice he sits” says mom to grandmother. Caspian plays and seems fascinated over the sound the pan makes when it hits the floor in the pretendkitchen/playkitchen. He looks at his mom and smiles at her. Grandmother makes sounds and he turns around to look at her. Mom gets seated with Caspian on the lap. She invites grandmother to sit opposite them on a chair so she can watch them.

Caspian waves his arms eagerly when he sees the food. He sits calmly and eats and looks upon mom and smiles. He reaches and grabs for his mom’s mouth and hair. Grandmother and mother make small talk and Caspian starts to twist a little on the lap. “What is it sweety? Are you tired already?” Mom gives him water from her bottle because she can’t find the cup he usually brings during visitation. They end the meal and mom puts him back on the floor.

Caspian plays a little while mom sits quietly next to him. He crawls towards his mother and onto her lap. He sits on her lap while playing with the pan. Caspian crawls towards the toys he knows next to the shelf and finds the horses. Mom asks grandmother if she remembers the song “Fola fola blakken”. Grandmother is not sure. U.t (the observer) finds the song on YouTube and offers to play the song for the grandmother. Mom brings Caspian onto her lap and watches the song and tries to sing with.

Mom comments “Are you tired already but surely we will play more on the floor first?” Caspian plays with the rubber puzzle game while mom and grandmother sits quietly and watch. Grandmother asks about the case/court case and mom explains. After a while grandmother lifts Caspian onto her lap. He grabs for her glasses she rocked him on her lap. Caspian laughs while she blows onto his neck. He “talks” with grandmother and plays with her glasses. She lets him, and he sits quiet for a bit on her lap. Mom leaves the room to make a phone call, and Caspian whines a bit.

Grandmother asks if he can hear her voice and they go out in the hallway so he can see the mother. Caspian tries to crawl to his mother. They come back to the living room again and mom says it’s not in her means to use the time on this but it is important and about changing her flight ticket. Grandmother says that he almost started to cry after mom when she left the room. “That was good to hear.” says mom. They get seated on the floor again. Caspian seems a little indisposed and mom lifts him up and cuddles him. They get back down again onto the floor. Mom crawls out to the hallway and Caspian crawls after in full speed.

Caspian and mom sit on the floor and Caspian crawls towards his grandmother and rises himself up by the puff. “Do you want to come here?” asks grandmother. She gently lifts him up onto her lap. After a while he gets uneasy and starts to whine. Grandmother gives him to the mother and she gives him the pacifier and walks on the floor while humming for him. He calms down and Caspian falls asleep like this.

11:20 am:

Mom lays down on the sofa with Caspian sleeping on her chest. Mom takes a picture and Caspian lifts his head but gets down again on mom’s chest. Y arrives 11.30 and grandmother gets ready to leave. She cries as she says goodbye to the mother and it might look as the mother cries too. The mother looks at me and smiles. Y gets seated in a chair after taking some photographs of the mother and Caspian on the sofa. The mother lies with her eyes closed and it seems like she also falls asleep in the end. After an hour the mother asks how long he has been asleep. She tries to wake him up, he opens his eyes than fall asleep again. Mom lies quiet as she takes selfies of her and Caspian. Nadia and Caspian 8 12 2016 visitation at Bergen cropped

12:35 am:

Mom tries to pry her way out of the sofa. She looks at me and says she wants to wake him up. Caspian opens his eyes looks upon his mother and smiles and falls back into sleep. She sees and smiles at him too. The mother and Caspian sits in the sofa until Caspian is fully awake. Than the mother delivers Caspian to Y and find’s the equipment to change the diaper. Y receives him and Caspian get’s a blueberry smoothie that he hold’s in his hands while they go to the bathroom. Caspian lay’s calmly on the changing mat and “babbles” while he moves the blueberry smoothie from one hand into the other. He says “ma-ma” and “røø.”
The mother comes into the living room, sits down on the sofa and gives Caspian the smoothie. The mother and Y discusses the case.

Ending:

I inform them that it is 10 minutes left. “Oh no, oh no” says the mother. “Maybe we’ll get time to eat some other food then?” The mother finds a yoghurt she wants to give, too. She says that the sandwiches he has with him where a little dry. Caspian looks for the food and grabs for the lunchbox. Mom tastes the sandwiches and says she didn’t like them. She wonders if she should try to give him the dinner food she bought but Y says she doesn’t have time for that. The mother says its bad if he leaves her hungry. Y thinks he will withstand it. The mother gives him a fruit yoghurt.

Caspian’s guardian (Barnevernet personnel) arrives 5 minutes earlier and apologizes that she is a little bit early. The mother says that you came 5 minutes earlier when dropping him off and 5 minutes earlier to fetch him. Then I am getting the 10 minutes back. Caspian is obviously more hungry and mom gives him the sandwiches he brought. Y comments that he now has his mouth full. The mother stands up with Caspian in her arms and we agree on another time around next week. Caspian babbles and is with good spirit. The mother dresses Caspian while sitting on the sofa.

Evaluation:

A nice and calm visitation. Mom lets him take charge and follows on his initiative. Caspian is active and seems to like it on the floor. He looks for mom while playing and crawls to her lap in between. In the first part of the visitation where grandmother is with the mother takes charge with a calm behavior and voice. Grandmother keeps in the background and lets her steer her. It seems like mother and grandmother have a good tone in between each other. Caspian slept for one hour and 15 minutes during the visitation.

*

On Monday, after a lengthy hearing (9 1/2 hours), Nadia was informed that she will “not get an answer before the 17th of August” which is next Wednesday.

Nadia previously understood that if she received a favorable conclusion to Monday’s hearing, she would be able to have custody of Caspian until The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda) hearing on August 24-26.

The Fylkesnemnda, scheduled for less than two weeks from today in Bergen, will determine the fate of Caspian’s future with Nadia.

Nadia has visitation scheduled for Thursday and Friday, August 18th and 19th.

——————————

My thoughts:

I wanted anyone interested in the case to know that Nadia was allowed visitation this week after Monday’s court hearing. She apparently has visitations scheduled for next Thursday and Friday, also. The reports and pictures reveal that the visits have gone very well.

“Miss him every day. He is the first thing I think of when I wake up and the last when I’m going to bed.”

“We had such a fantastic time together today.. At the end of the visit he was tired, and I was carrying him around and singing him to sleep so he was sleeping in my arms.. It was wonderful.”

These comments along with the pictures illustrate Nadia’s feelings towards her child. She naturally misses the son that God has given her to raise. Caspian must miss her, too, looking at the way he snuggles up to her in these pictures.

I did ask Nadia about how the word “hectic” was used in Thursday’s report. I thought all of the pictures seemed calm and nice. I explained to Nadia that in English “The word hectic means to do things in a very fast way that may be very unorganized.” Nadia replied, “I don’t think it was hectic and I don’t think Caspian did either.”

I think the visitation observers did a good job. I have been a visitation observer myself and I have had to make notes about visitations. I appreciate that a general evaluation is included at the end.

There is something that puzzles me. Nadia had court on Monday (8th), visitation on Thursday (11th) and Friday (12th), and she is supposed to have visitation this coming Thursday(18th) and Friday (19th). This coming Friday is the 19th and the important court dates of the 24th-26th are only five days later.

Will Nadia have a chance at custody before the important court date on August 24-26th? Monday’s 9 1/2 hour hearing was supposed to be about custody before the important court date. So, either Nadia will get very little custody before the 24th-26th, or no custody, or there is the possibility that the CPS representative who picked up Caspian at Friday’s visitation didn’t coordinate with the CPS office. In any case, a mother who has been through very stressful events throughout the life of her young child is wondering once again.

As I have mentioned before, there is no apparent good reason for this child to be kept from its mother. Nothing has changed for me to come to any different conclusion. Hopefully, there will be a good decision regarding this family soon.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #6

July 6, 2016
Caspian and Nadia June 2016

Caspian and Nadia
June 2016

JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO (at approximately 10:30 am Norway time, July 6th), NADIA INFORMED ME THAT: “They called me from Barnevernet, and I can see him next week. They also want a meeting..”

The following update was almost complete when the news came in! This experience becomes more like a serious roller-coaster ride as time passes. Is this the way all Barnevernet “clients” are treated??? Most of the cases that I’m aware of have had similarities to this case, particularly in an apparent lack of communication by the Barnevernet. Each case is unique and should be treated as such.

Just a few minutes ago, Nadia had no idea when she would next see Caspian.

*******Update*******

Caspian is no longer with those who love him the most. Nadia, his mother, continues to be devastated.

The picture above is one of the last taken of mother and child together before Monday, June 13th, 24 days ago. Nadia describes in her own words what happened on that day:

“Suddenly came the day I had feared. Police and child welfare stood at the door and forced their way in to get my little prince lying in his bed.” (These words can be seen in the video below)

Nadia also wrote this recently:

“I carried him for 9 months in my stomach,
I loved him from the first moment I heard his heart”

Although the Wings of the Wind is still not aware of any public statement made by any source responsible for the separation of this child from this mother, statements of the defense lawyer have been made public.

Nadia’s lawyer, Harald Grape, writes about the hearing:

“It is recalled that child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of the Caspian, he will dwell with mother at Hennum would not suffer as required by law. It was pointed journal dated 14th June where it appears that “Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…”

“How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible although one assumes reports to Vilde. Vilde was worried about Caspian had a “nascent lopsided development” based on reports that the tribunal had not will be accessible under the committee meeting.” (Google Translate)

“After our stay at Hennum it is quite obvious that Caspian has not got lopsided development. Firstly refer to a medical certificate dated 14 June 2016 from the doctor Ingvild Setså. It appears here that the Caspian provide very good contact, smiles and is very active, good general condition. He was a healthy and active boy who provide very good contact. This is a clear indicator that the Caspian in the five weeks he was with his mother after staying at Vilde developed well.” (Google Translate)

As noted in the last update the doctor, Ingvild Setså, was approved by the Barnevernet.

Mr. Grape continues:

“The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him'” (Google Translate)

“..it is quite obvious that the biological principle (is) no longer employed by the county boards in Norway. This violates the ECHR.” (The European Convention on Human Rights). (Google Translate)

This hearing took place on at The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda) in Molde, Norway on Thursday, June 23rd.

Nadia was informed on Monday, June 27th that Caspian was to be kept by Norway’s Barnevernet (Child Protection Services).

Apparently, an appeal by Mr. Grape will not be heard.

Nadia will have to wait until August 25th for the next hearing in the case.

A protest will be held this Friday, July 8th, in Warsaw, Poland, for parents like Nadia. The protest is being held in conjunction with the NATO Summit Warsaw 2016 which will be attended by leaders from all over the world.
_________________________________

My thoughts:

As this account continues to unfold, I am continually amazed at the circumstances under which this has happened.

If the translation is correct, Mr. Grape (Nadia’s lawyer) has made several important points:

First, he notes that a “child welfare leader, who met in committee, substantiated his opinion of …Caspian…It was pointed journal dated 14th June (the day after Caspian was taken from his crib) where it appears that ‘Whether she should get the child back there is no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload…'”

So, it seems that in the hearing on the 14th a “child welfare leader” thought there was “no reason to believe that the baby will suffer any direct overload” if “she (Nadia) should get the child back.”

Second, Mr. Grape noted “How Tribunal has reached this is quite incomprehensible.”

Mr. Grape didn’t understand why the judge made such a decision and the only thing that was evident as the cause was the decision made at Vilde, the day after Nadia and Caspian left.

It is important to remember that the “Tribunal” consisted of one man.

Third, the term “nascent lopsided development” seems to be the term that The Vilde Mothers’ Home (Parent and Childcare center) used in the police report when Nadia was found missing. It appears that the judge in Molde made his decision on this report alone.

I looked up the word “nascent” in a dictionary. It means “just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.”

So, if I’m reading this correctly, Caspian was taken from his mother because some “lopsided development” was just beginning to show.

Every baby has its own personality. To take a child from his biological mother for such a reason is inhumane.

Fourth, Ingvild Setså (A doctor approved by the Barnevernet) checked Caspian’s health the day after he was kidnapped (it is the only term that fits well) from the Hennum home and his mother, Nadia. The doctor found Caspian to be in good health after being away from Vilde, enough to write some type of “medical certificate.”

Fifth, Mr. Grape writes that: “The Tribunal writes: ‘if the child is going back to his mother, he will again experience instability and fracture, which will be an additional burden for him…'”

So, one man called “The Tribunal” found a statement by a “Child Welfare leader;” the report of a doctor; and the eyewitness account (that is normally not taken) of the professional nurse, Margaret Hennum (it is also mentioned by Mr. Grape) to be inadmissible evidence in this case.

Also, as has already been noted, Caspian received a good health report on the day after he was taken. It appears obvious that the baby Caspian must have been getting very good care as noted by the doctor. How does this explain, “he will again experience instability?” This statement is made by the judge in spite of the fact that Caspian was receiving the best care of his young life at the home of Maraget Hennum.

Instead, “The Tribunal” used a report from the Vilde Center about some type of “”nascent lopsided development” to make his decision.

Also note that the phrase “he will AGAIN experience instability and fracture” is used.

After multiple reports that I’ve become aware of regarding the “Centers” where parents are observed (Nadia mentions cameras in the video below), if anything caused instability it was the environment that Nadia and Caspian were in for the first important months of Caspian’s life.

Sixth, these “Centers” are supposed to be voluntary. This is stated on the Barnevernet’s own website.

It doesn’t sound like Nadia wanted to be there.

Seventh, Mr. Grape writes his opinion: “This violates the ECHR,” The European Convention on Human Rights.

Norway has been admonished more than one time about human rights abuses similar to the ones in Nadiah’s and Caspian’s case. The words of the ECHR have fallen on deaf ears.

And last, Nadia has to wait until August 25th, as far as we know, to get another “hearing” in some type of court.

Where is Caspian? His own mother doesn’t know because the Barnevernet seems to think she is going to attempt to “kidnap” him. I have already used the term “kidnapped” here and it wasn’t in reference to Nadia.

Has Caspian been placed with potential foster care workers and is he now forming some kind of bond with them?

How do we know Caspian is receiving good care. Has there been another doctor’s report?

Is the Barnevernet watching Caspian as intently as it did at Vilde? It they are, it is unhealthy. Constant surveillance for the purpose of observation is intrusive at best. A loving parent is best suited to watching the child to insure its safety and welfare.

Will the Barnevernet ever take the The European Convention on Human Rights violation reports regarding Norway seriously?

There are other questions, but enough have been asked for now.
————————–

I JUST HEARD FROM NADIA AGAIN. (It is now almost 8 pm in Norway.) THERE WAS SOME SORT OF MISUNDERSTANDING AND NADIA’S MEETING WITH CASPIAN IS TOMORROW, THURSDAY, JULY 7.

I asked Nadia where the meeting was and how far she had to travel. Here was her reply:

“I will have to travel to Bergen. It’s far away.. I have to drive 40 minutes, then take a airplane, then a bus for maybe 1 hour. They say they want a meeting on Friday.”

Nadia was in a hurry as she needed to prepare for the trip and said good-bye with a smiley face. She has had such a good attitude, as far as I can tell, after all she has been through.

So, she has to hurry to make a long trip so that she can see Caspian tomorrow in Bergen and then she will go to some kind of meeting with Barnevernet officials on Friday.

What if Nadia couldn’t make the meeting for one reason or another, maybe because of time or financial constraints? Would this be held against her to add to the non-existent evidence for taking Caspian in the first place. One can only wonder…and pray.
————————————–

Nadia and another victim of Norway’s CPS recently made and published the following video. If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend it. If you have seen it, you may want to watch it a second time. I have. It is a “picture with words” that tells the story of a mother who is very concerned for the well-being of her child.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #4

June 24, 2016

Caspian

Caspian


Nadia’s lawyer thought that a decision would be made in his client’s case today. He and Nadia waited for a phone call or a text message.

None came.

Nadia received a text message from her lawyer at approximately 4:50 pm this afternoon. It read:

“I have not heard anything and they are closed. This means that they will not decide until Monday.”

Nadia, Caspian’s mother, has been told that her son is in Bergen, a 7-8 hour trip away by car. Nadia has been informed that Caspian is at an undisclosed address because the Barnevernet doesn’t want her to know of his location. This is because they think that Nadia might try to kidnap Caspian. It is the reason they will not let Nadia know where Caspian is.

The Wings of the Wind has been told by a good source that yesterday’s hearing was held in Molde, about a 1 and 1/2 hour drive from where Nadia now lives. Nadia and Caspian’s new temporary residence is in Brandal, Norway at the residence of Margaret Hennum.

This publication has also learned more about the hearing in Molde, yesterday.

First, only one person presided over the hearing.

Second, Brynhild Solvang, the head of the CPS office in Volda, the office where the decision to take Caspian from his mother was made, was present with a Barnevernet lawyer.

Third, Nadia and her Lawyer were also present to answer questions and give testimony.

Fourth, Margaret Hennum was allowed to give witness testimony.

Fifth, Nadia’s lawyer expected a decision today.

Nadia’s lawyer waited today for an answer and was not contacted by the Molde office.

Nadia received the text message from her lawyer noted above.

—————
Editor’s notes: The events of this case in the past two days bring up many more questions than they answer.

Why was Nadia’s lawyer not notified that there would be no ruling until next week?

Why is Caspian so far away from his mother in Bergen?

Why would the Barnevernet think that Nadia would kidnap her child? She has never attempted anything like it in the past that has been noted.

Why was only one person presiding over the hearing at The County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda)? As noted in yesterday’s update: “The Tribunal consists of the case of a manager who is a lawyer, two experts members and two members of a normal range.” this information was mentioned in the link from the Fylkesnemnda, posted here yesterday in Update #3.

Why was Margaret Hennum allowed to give witness testimony? The Wings of the Wind has been informed that this is very unusual in a case like this.

I also have a new question based on new information which I have been given from a reliable source.

I have been told that the decision of this County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs is only a temporary decision.

Nadia has been informed that there will be another hearing in late August to further determine the welfare of Caspian.

My question: Even if Nadia is given custody of Caspian on Monday, why does she have to go to another hearing to determine Caspian’s future?

All of these question come to one big one: Is this how all child welfare cases are handled in Norway? If so, I can’t imagine a loving parent having to go through this experience.

On top of all of this there is Nadia’s background. She was taken from a mother whom she considered “loving” when she was only 13. Her, four siblings, including twins, were split up into five different places and raised in five different environments. Thus, she has experienced something similar to this once in her life already and now it is happening again with her own child. If the CPS of Norway (Barnevernet) was very concerned for Caspian or his mother, the case wouldn’t be handled in such a cold and heartless manner.

The term “kidnap” usually means that someone is taken against his/her will. The kidnappers here work for Norway’s Barnevernet. The kidnapper is not Nadia, the loving mother of Caspian.

BABY CASPIAN KIDNAPPED IN NORWAY…UPDATE #3

June 24, 2016
Caspian

Caspian

It is 7:00 am Norway time, Friday, June 24th. According to a source that is very close to this case, today will be an important day in the life of Baby Caspian. A decision will be made that will affect his future.

This publication has learned that a hearing was held yesterday at the offices of the County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs (Fylkesnemnda). The Wings of the Wind is unsure of the particular office (1 of 12 in the country) where this hearing was held.

THERE ARE SEVERAL LINKS INCLUDING A PICTURE OF ONE OF THE FYLKESNEMNDA OFFICES HERE.

According to the WEBSITE OF THE FYLKESNEMNDA, it is a:

“court-like administrative body empowered to make decisions in including issues concerning care of children and the forced intervention by severe behavioral problems in adolescents.
There are 12 committees in the country. The Tribunal consists of the case of a manager who is a lawyer , two experts members and two members of a normal range . Decisions made ​​by the County Board may be brought before the district court.”

(Google Translate is used for all translation)

The Wings of the Wind is not aware of any source connected to the Barnevernet or the Norwegian government that has issued any type of public statement on this subject. It has now been 10 days since Caspian was removed from his crib by an “initiative of emergency” (emergency decision) on Monday, June 13th at approximately 2 pm.

It was stated in an earlier update that the Wings of the Wind’s understanding is that the removal of a child according to an “emergency decision” “can be carried out only when a child is in acute danger.” Two of the sources that this publication has relied on for previous information: Nadia, Caspian’s mother, and Margaret Hennum, a friend of Caspian’s Mother, have both stated that the child was in no such danger.

Here what took place at yesterday’s hearing according to a source close to the family:

“On the occasion of the meeting of the appeal June 23, 2016 : After what mother can tell about today’s outcome , she is satisfied with a good lawyer work and testified that she did lead after grueling battle of the lawyer. ( There is normally no witnesses to such complaints . ) Mothers own observer has knowledge beyond the general notes . She is therefore regarded as an expert , where she has also submitted reports to provide care for observations over a long period . It is also submitted observations from others with education that gives them credibility above Tribunal , where it lodged observations describing care agency .”

I have left this just as it was given to me. The Wings of the Wind is aware that Margaret Hennum, the friend and helper of Caspian’s mother, has been taking notes of events as they have happened. She is probably the one referred to here as “Mothers own observer.”

Here is a VERY IMPORTANT part of the information I was given:

“The outcome of today’s meeting we learn tomorrow ( 24.06.16 )”

This seems to indicate that an important decision about Caspian’s future will be made sometime today.

If a decision is made today, this publication will try to get that information out as soon as it can.

Editor’s note: One must be reminded that Caspian is approximately 6 months old. Ten days in the life of a six-month-old is a long time to be away from its mother. Since this publication is not aware of any public statement made by any office of the Barnevernet and is aware of comments made by Ms. Hennum, there is no good reason to indicate why this child was taken in the first place.
