Home Educating Family Have ALL of Their Children Taken Away

Please Pray for this family to have their children returned promptly. Their children are being brainwashed and abused by the "child protection agency" in New Jersey.

"It's every parent's nightmare. Army Major John Jackson and his wife Carolyn, devout Christian home schoolers with a history of serving as adoptive and foster parents, had their five children taken away in April 2010 by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services – and despite the collapse of the evidence against the Jacksons, DYFS hasn't returned the children to their parents."

What a heart wrenching story.

I had a hard time reading it through to the end...

This paragraph made me actually laugh though...

"In addition to physical abuse, the Jacksons have been accused of abusing the children through corporal punishment and depriving them of TV and video games, and of harming their social development through home schooling."

So...not giving children tv and video games is now depriving children and can be considered a type of abuse?! We couldn't make up this kind of sad.

I think of how easily it could have been us...and remember those who HAVE had to fight for their children and continue to need to do so in prayer.
