Ministry vs. Family

It is an utter outrage that Ministry of Child and Family would try to destroy this family - and yes, they are a family.  To tear these boys away from their caregivers of 11 years is beyond cruel.

The boys' families, their Family Practitioner and all others actually involved in the boys' care are against it.  Who does MCF think they are to ignore all that professional and personal advice? Have they not considered the emotional trauma these boys will endure?

Simply needing help with the care of one adopted son (to which he should  entitled through Community Care programs) does demonstrate a deficiency in this family. It was a stroke of extreme luck that brought these boys to the Koester's home. Leave it alone.
