Praise God! It appears that Aria has been returned to Ken and Vibeke!!!

May 2, 2018

The news is still sketchy but Professor Marianne H. Skanland has alerted me about more than one article in Norwegian newspapers that seem to verify the headline above. Baby Aria was taken from her parents just days after being born and according to the news articles and Facebook comments it appears that she has finally been returned to her rightful parents.

Aria was born on January 13th, 2015 at 10:53 am. Ten days later the “Norwegian Child Welfare Services” took Aria away from Ken and Vibeke for ridiculous reasons. She has been away from her real father and mother almost 2 and 1/2 years now. Ken and Vibeke have worked tirelessly to retain the rights to their daughter whose name was changed at least twice while in custody (in a foster home somewhere unknown to her real parents).

Thank you to anyone who prayed about this situation. I have put up occasional articles about the Family’s situation and this story is at the top of the three active ones that I have been following for some time. This reunion is not an everyday occurrence in Norway. It is quite miraculous. Ken and Vibeke have been persistent, brave, and wisely restrained in their efforts to get their daughter back. I will post more information here as I know more. There has been so much bad news coming out of Norway that I had to post this a.s.a.p. Today is a day for celebration!!!

The headline is true. Aria has been returned to her parents. Ken has verified it for me in a Facebook comment (see below).

Ken sent this picture to me today…It is a great day!

Conversation from Facebook today:

Ken Joar Olsen:
“Thank you my friend, and sorry that i haven’t informed in English to you all. But between my tears, from all the praise and congratulations the private messages in my inbox. And especially the two princesses demanding me to be a climbing three, a burping station and a sandwich maker. I had a short appointment with the dentist… So now i am using some free minutes whilst they are in the shop, to get out some thank you messages to GREAT people like you that by your support. Forever will be a part of our now huge family and story. So hugs from us, and best wishes to you and yours.”

Chris Reimers:
“No worries my friend. I saw all of the notes of congratulation on a couple of facebook posts and I knew you were busy. Many people have followed your case and the news is gladly received in many countries. I particularly figured that you would be spending some much needed catch up family time.
How cool is it to be a climbing tree?
As soon as the dust settles a bit, maybe you can write something about how this worked out. It will please me greatly to remove your story from “Recent Accounts of Children Taken” on my blog. I am thankful to God for answering our prayers. Have a great day my friend and may God continue to bless you and your family.”

NOW AND FOREVER OUR DAUGHTER…SEEING ARIA TODAY

July 19, 2016

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy

Aria holds the bubble maker for her daddy


We had our two-hour visitation today with our precious little princess
It was again a wonderful meeting and we loved seeing her again. She seems to recognize us and was happy, very talkative and started playing with her mummy shortly after we arrived. We brought soap-bubbles she could play with, and she really thought this was funny. She wanted to put the bubbles into daddy and mommy’s mouth, laughing a lot We also brought a book with photos of us and her she can bring to the foster parents. It was really heartbreaking when Aria took the book, pointed at a picture of Vibeke and said “mummy”. She seemed quite independent of her confidence-person, and was not in need of any particular support from her.

Actually when the visitation was terminated after two hours, she started crying.

And we doubt anyone can understand and really comprehend how devastating it is to see your own daughter cry and not being allowed to comfort her because the visitation has finished.

We as Arias one and only parents are sure that she also knows there is a special bond between us, she can feel and sense it.

Her temper is much like her father-fearless, active, but her strong headedness she gets from both her parents Even not barnevernet can erase biology, and Aria can feel the connection. So do not make any mistakes-she is OUR daughter and she belongs in OUR family, not in a foster family. Now and forever!

Before the visitation, Barnevernet and the police made a huge mistake and the visitation almost cancelled.

The scheduled visitation was cancelled, but first after we actually showed up at the location.

There we were met by the leader of Lørenskog Barnevern Arnfinn Heimstad who explained it and made some excuses.
Suddenly he was not afraid of Arias father any more, very strange we must add.

We had off course been looking forward to the visitation and hardly slept anything the night before.

When we got back home, Barnevernet made a phone call to us where they re-scheduled the visitation to later the same day.
Because the police did not have the time, they hired private security-guards and even paid for our taxi-expenses.

So for the first time they actually cleaned up their own mess, which was a first positive experience.

And so to finish it off, Mette Lisbet Haugen, the hired contractor, praised us many times after the visitation.

And also Aria many times during the visitation, so today we are not only full of love towards our dear baby Aria as parents, but also proud parents…
BUT TO BE CLEAR on that WE ARE PROUD parents of ARIA every second and every day, SHE is the result of our love and now and forever will she be the love of our life.

Anyone who has been following this story will have mixed emotions when reading about this visitation. This beautiful little girl only gets to see her parents two hours 3 or 4 times a year. This family was never given a chance to start life together as Baby Aria was taken from her parents in the first days of her life. The charges made by the Norwegian authorities against these parents are a mix of outrageous and mysterious. There is no good reason that Aria is in foster care. As the numbers of children removed from Norwegian parents are reported to be increasing each year, more families find themselves in the same situation as Ken and Vibeke.

BABY ARIA HAS NEVER SLEPT IN HER OWN CRIB

July 2, 2016

Why has Baby Aria never slept in her own crib? As far as the Wings of the Wind has been able to ascertain, there were only two reasons given to her parents:

Reason #1: Aria’s father, Ken Olsen, was a danger to his wife and child.

Reason #2: Aria’s mother, Vibeke, would not renounce her husband.

The video above was made by Ken Olsen and was published one week ago. It explains other details of the case.

This is very similar to the Baby Caspian case. Caspian and his Mother, Nadia, have now been separated for almost 20 days. The Caspian story has gotten notice from many sources including this publication.

Two days after her birth, baby Aria was separated from her father, Ken. Baby Aria and Vibeke were left alone in a place called Moringen. Allegedly, Ken and Vibeke were not able to communicate as Vibeke’s telephone was confiscated. Vibeke was able to contact Ken after five days of separation. Apparently, no one called Ken to let him know what was happening.

It is now one and a half years after Baby Aria was taken from her Parents. The Wings of the Wind has been told by a source close to the situation that the Barnevernet has made NO effort to reunify this child with her biological parents.

There have been four hearings involving baby Aria, two regarding the emergency removal, and two on the “overtaking of the care.” After all other options were gone, Ken and Vibeke appealed to a higher court. The appeal was denied.

==========================
Editor’s Note:

It is another baffling decision that has come from Norway’s Child Protective Services.

Why was this couple given no chance to parent this child?

Why were the mother and child taken from a father who had done nothing wrong? He had not been violent to the mother or the child.

There were 3 members on committees in at least 2 of the 4 hearings where Ken and Vibeke were present. Baby Caspian only had one person make the very important decision that a young child should not be returned to her loving parent. This inconsistency seems very odd.

Ken said, “Even the psychologist, has never seen anything like this.”

I have given a speech in Ken’s behalf THAT CAN BE FOUND HERE.

Most of the words in the speech are Ken’s own and tell of his own childhood in CPS custody.

Here is the JUSTICE FOR BABY ARIA AND HER FAMILY Facebook page.

Ken and Vibeke get to see Aria every couple of months for a couple of hours. Is this the way Aria’s entire life will be?

It is hard to imagine.

WEEKLY WRAP UP FOR 2016-5-14

May 14, 2016

This was an interesting week on the computer in many ways. On the blogging front, lots of interesting material became available this week.

As most of us think our Mom’s are “The Best Mom in the World,” Mother’s Day began with this post. It is one of two pieces I wrote this week.

The Universe Has Been Carefully Dialed to an Astonishingly Precise Value is one of two posts taken from Sherryn’s outstanding discernment blog called: The Narrowing Path.

Melbourne completes coverage of Australian Demonstrations does just that. We head off to another continent next week.

NO DUE PROCESS IN AMERICA? discusses a time in America where some Americans had just that. It was my second shot at writing this week.

Home School Legal Defense Association Publicizes the Bodnariu Case was found at Valeria’s blog this week. The HSLDA, an American organization, put together the best short documentary about the Bodnariu family that I’ve seen.

4 Empty Beds in Norway: 4 of Thousands is a repeat of the HSLDA video because I like it so much.

Bono Meets Eugene Peterson is an well-researched Herescope article on the two giants. Peterson thinks it is OK to add to God’s Word.

Lead me Lord by Gospel Trumpet Singers is a prayer in the form of a beautiful song.

My Friend Ken and CPS Recorded/Vibeke Speaks is an actual recording of Ken Olsen and the mother of his child, Vibeke Morrissey, and their encounter with a CPS worker.

Can a man change a man—short answer-NO, only Jesus can change a man. is another educational word study by Manny Rodriquez, my blogging buddy.

NORWAY…A COUNTRY WHERE EVEN ART IS UPSIDE DOWN!!! is a verbal work of art about a hanging work of art. Ken Olsen is very creative.

Russian Officials Speculate That a Nuclear War Could Leave Romania a “Smoking Ruins” comments on Putin’s Push because of a weak American Foreign Policy.

Why do we want to look like the world? is a question all Christians should ask themselves. Dan C. writes on the subject.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION is a timely piece about revisionism. Thank you for posting this, Manny. We all need to read all of it.

The Dangerously Influential Gospel of Tim Keller is important information in this era of wolves among the flock. Sherryn has posted information about a false teacher that many know of. Interestingly, Keller wrote the forward to the recent biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

This Light of Mine ~ is a Christian poem by Deborah Ann Belka. No week would be complete without reading something from Deborah Ann.

Some good times were had with the kids this week. Got to help the Special Ed kids at Fountain Lake on Field Day. We got wet, we jumped in the bounce houses, we enjoyed the sunshine.

I took care of this week’s best joke of the day.

So…What do you call a friendly school?

My Friend Ken and CPS Recorded/Vibeke Speaks

May 12, 2016

I am in contact with Ken Olsen almost on a daily basis. I HAVE POSTED A SPEECH that I have given for Ken’s family. I have told his story to more than one group of people. Here you hear a conversation between Ken, the mother of Ken’s child, Vibeke, and a CPS worker while baby Aria is not in the room.

Here is Aria’s mother making a video that she hopes her little girl understands some day:

Four times a year for 1 hour a day!!! It is the wrong people who are being prosecuted (persecuted). Please pray for Ken and Vibeke.

I would like to thank Octavian Curpas for sharing this with me via email.

Ken and Vibeke’s Story…What?

May 6, 2016

Ken and I are Facebook friends. We are both truth seekers.

Here is a speech I made to the Watchmen of Garland County last Monday. I told them Ken’s story. It is written in a speech format and should make easy reading. The speech took 20 minutes.

The Ken Olsen Story

Thank you for the opportunity to speak, Pastor Doug.

My brothers,

Having to be at work by 7:30 A.M. has meant missing The Watchmen of Garland County meetings for the past 2 years. I’ve been blessed to meet the wonderful students of Garland county as a public school substitute. I’ve missed you but I’ve taken the day off today for another reason.

If you have any questions about what I have said here today, please talk to me after the meeting or you may call me anytime.

Pastors are fighting on so many fronts today as you well know. What am I going to do? Educate you on a front which you probably know nothing about.

Before you shut me down at the beginning, who remembers what happened to the Stanley family here in Garland County last year? If you don’t remember or didn’t hear the story, their children were taken. Due process eventually took its course and the family was reunited.

If you don’t know about the case “absolutely no evidence of neglect or abuse had been found when 7 children were removed from their home and separated from their parents by the Garland County Sheriff’s Department. (1)
And speaking of 7…

The Rule of Seven is an old marketing adage that says a message must be heard at least seven times before someone takes action. (2)

I mention this because I will be reading selected portions of 3 short articles written by the same man on the same subject…his life. Maybe you can remember some of this by hearing it 3 times in 3 different ways.

The next time you hear about this subject will be an email alerting you to the next worldwide demonstration against Norway’s Child Protective Services.

(Show demonstration pics)

You probably don’t know that on the same day that “Derby Day,” was wrapping up the horse racing season there was a protest taking place across the world in over 70 cities and in many countries. There were over 60 thousand at Oaklawn that day. There were 50 people at Arlington Lawn in Hot Springs earlier in the day. The worldwide protest eclipsed the numbers at Oaklawn that day.

What were all of those protesters doing? They were trying to alert the world of something going on in Norway.

According to 2008 statistics:

Norway…

Ranked #1 in the world as “most livable”

Ranked #2 in the world in per capita income

Had a 100% literacy rate…only 1 of 7 countries to hold that distinction.

Why would so many people be holding signs protesting something in Norway.

I have recently found out a few other facts about Norway.

The country found vast oil reserves in the 1960’s and the government owns 2/3rds of the largest oil company.

The State Church is funded by the government.

About half of the members of the State Church in Norway say they are not Christians.

Today, I will tell you the story of one person. The truth is, there are thousands like him in the Nordic countries. What is happening there under the title of “child protection” can only be called evil.

This is a picture of my friend Ken Olsen. These are his words:

Ken, Vibeke, and Baby Aria

Ken, Vibeke, and Baby Aria

“This picture was taken in November last year at a visitation with Aria (AR..eea). It was taken by the psychologist since we won’t let Barnevernet workers take pictures of us. It’s wrong of them to break up a family and then offer to take a family picture.”

The first source I quote is an article Published March 18th, 2016 in the ARMONIA MAGAZINE – USA
(I have edited all three articles for easier listening. I have changed no major content. CR)

The title is: “Ken Joar Olsen and his Aria – Norway”

“My story with Barnevernet (that’s the name for Norway’s “Child Protective Services”) starts when I was 8 years old. They started bullying my Mother. I was living alone with her on a small island called Vigra (off of the coast of Norway) After a year of intimidation, my Mother packed some bags and fled to Denmark with me.

Fourteen days later we were staying in a Danish hotel. My Mom was out working when, suddenly, police officers and the Danish Barnevernet come storming in and forcefully removed me. Maybe they thought my Mom was neglecting me. I have never found out the real reason that I was taken.

They placed me in an acute institution. The place was terrible. They beat me for not brushing my teeth well enough. I did not understand what they were saying and I was scared of the dark. They locked me up in a DARK bedroom. I was screaming and crying, so they threatened me. I still remember looking out the key hole all night just to see some light. After a week they moved me to a much bigger institution.

They forced me to start ALONE in a Danish school. It was a BIG school with 500 students. I was still scared and I did not speak or understand the language. I was bullied a lot and started fighting. I got expelled so they moved me to another institution. The place was a real HELL, with a lot of sexual and physical abuse. My mother gave birth to my little sister when I was eleven years old and I told her about some of the abuse during the few visitations we had. I did not mention the sexual abuse, of course, but still SHE CAME to my rescue and got me out of there. It was too late. I felt “ruined” and had become a “problem child.”

My mother could not control me after the abusive institution. I was an angry and damaged 11 year old boy. I really don’t know who’s decision it was when I was moved away from my Mom.

I was relocated to a foster home, which was “ok.” All the while I felt and knew I was only an income for them, me and the three others. This was eventually proven. When the construction of their house was complete and they had a baby of their own, we 3 children under 18 were thrown out. I was moved to a new institution. I lived there until I was 16 years old, then they kicked me out to live in my own apartment.

That ended badly. I wound up in a jail, sentenced to 1 1/2 years. I was then released into a new foster family. This ended quickly when they got divorced. I have been in and out of trouble due to a violent past involving criminal gangs, drugs, more jail time, etc. This type of thing happens to most of us who have grown up under the “Child Protective Services” called Barnevernet.

My dad is a unknown story, and my mother became a heavy drinker when i was taken by the Barnevernet. She fell out a window and died when I was 18.

In 2004, they deported me back to Norway. I STILL had no HELP or anyone to care about my past. I was almost 30 and was being returned to complete a prison sentence.

Fast forward to January of 2015 when we had our princess Aria. She was a beautiful baby so, of course, Barnevernet came to the hospital after 2 days and took her away.

The reason?

My own upbringing under the “care” of Barnevernet. THEY say that children under their care will not have a chance in the future to be able to be caring enough to have a child. This sickens me. THAT’S WHY I have a STRONG HATRED. I KNOW WHAT THEY DO TO OUR CHILDREN. BEEN THERE TRIED THAT.”

Ken now can see his little girl, Aria, six times a year for 2 hours each.

The second source that I’d like to use is one from The Miorita Magazine/A Romanian-American Independent Newspaper. It was Published April 2nd, 2016

Title: Proof of Barnevernet’s criminal activity

“It is stated by the European human rights Court that a placement of a child outside its biological family is an action that can be done only as a temporary measure. And it should be as brief as possible, according to Norwegian courts.

In our case, the Psychologist, a specialist appointed from the court, who spent over 100 hours on the investigation, stated that we should be given a chance as parents. Also our regular doctors for the last 4 years didn’t see any problems with us as caregivers. Moreover, a witness from Nav Lillestrøm didn’t see any problems, and also a woman who “adopted” me and introduced me into her family as her own son didn’t see any problems.
However, Barnevernet agents “saw a problem.” Arnfinn Heimstad, the boss of Barnevernet in Lørenskog refused to talk to us.

Two contracted women from Barnevernet, Lene Jargren & Mette Haugen, did see a problem (They talked with us for 3 hours after Aria was taken). Psychologist Britta Strømme from the municipal saw a problem and made a phone call to us about it. The same Psychologist used by Barnevernet as a special witness for them was behind one of the anxious reports sent to the the office in Lørenskog.

Now, 5 months later, even after the court stated that Barnevernet did this in a wrong way, there have been no further investigations on us as the parents of Baby Aria.

There has been no further interest from Barnevernet’s Leader, Arnfinn Heimstad, in investigating the consultants he hired in my case.

NO FURTHER INTEREST in bringing our princess Aria back to her family.

This is A CLEAR VIOLATION of Aria’s Human Rights and our Human Rights.

Arnfinn Heimstad is personally responsible for the crime he continues to commit against our family without being accountable to anybody.

We will not stop our fight for justice. Someone should be thinking of the severity of the crime he committed. Instead, we are shown an extremely bad attitude by Barnevernet. They don’t care about the opinions of other professionals involved.”

About a month after this publication, Ken and I became facebook friends.

He wrote an article and posted it to Facebook on Sunday, April 24th.

The title: SOME SAY THE CPS DOES SO MUCH GOOD, BUT WE, THE SILENT VICTIMS, RECEIVE A LIFE SENTENCE!!!

“Hello. To any who see this, know that I have never asked for much during my 41 years of life.

But now, I ask you for this one thing only. It will mean an incredible amount to me and many others. Could you please take 3 minutes of your time to read this and afterwards, take some time to think about it. We, as former children under “public care” are condemned for the rest of our lives.

CPS ALWAYS argues that the child was very damaged and neglected in his own biological family during childhood BEFORE they (Barnevernet) came into the picture. I have often said that this is not necessarily correct and I will try to explain to you why I believe this.

I was born in Ålesund on a small Island named vigra, a place where everyone knows everyone. My mom was a single mother and we had a HUGE biological family, which never reacted negatively about the care my mother gave me. They have never made any phone calls to the CPS called Barnevernet.

I was like any other young boy. I went to school and in my free time, I enjoyed fishing, shooting with bow and arrows, playing soccer etc.

I spent time with my male role models, my grandfather and uncles.

I don’t claim that my mom was perfect but I remember her as a good and loving caregiver.

Thus, I was not a neglected child. Fourteen days after mom and I moved to Denmark. I was forcefully abducted by Børnevernet. It is the same as the Norwegian Barnevernet.

I was scared for the next 7 years when I lived under “public care.”

Like many other children under CPS’s watchful eye, I was not attending primary school in a conventional manner with a full curriculum.

I ended up with a prison sentence at the age of 16, with a sentence of 18 months.

This is one of many convictions I have received and served.

I’m not saying that it’s not my own stupid choices and I take responsibility for that, but the anger and “tools” that my CPS upbringing gave me didn’t help.

As CPS so nicely says, one cannot expect to be better than the environment one grew up in.

IF they had a reason to take me, they had seven years to correct my “damage.” I struggled like any other lonely child of a single parent before they took me away.

I was probably a bit spoiled and used to getting things by nagging or giving my mother a “hard time.”

BUT in 7 years, CHILD WELFARE achieved nothing. Instead of a victim as they ALLEGEDLY removed me as, I ended up as a perpetrator (assailant / robber /using illegal substances). Therefore, I have been gagged and condemned, since now I have a criminal record. Now, what I say means nothing.

I am by no means the only one.

Three out of ten inmates in Norwegian prisons were in contact with the Barnevernet before the age of 16. (3)
