Governor’s Campaign Offering (Some) Stolen Kids Kick-Off Event for NOVA July 30, 2013

22 Jul

Governor Bob McDonnell today announced the state wide leadership team for “Virginia Adopts: Campaign for 1,000,” an initiative to match 1,000 children currently in foster care with adoptive families. Many of the foster children, like Ashlie, unfortunately were taken from their families on false pretenses and their families are continuing to fight to get them back.    A form of child-trafficking for cash, taking children from their natural family that loves them and wants them, and giving them to another is a form of child trafficking and the Commonwealth of Virginia must stop counties like Arlington from engaging in this illegal activity — often using fraudulently obtained Medicaid funds.

The leadership team, which consists of community leaders, elected officials, and adoption advocates, needs to be aware of what counties like Arlington are doing.   In addition to  highlight the effort and promote adoption around Virginia, they need to return the children, like Ashlie, who were illicitly removed from their families and profited by many in Arlington.      Attend the regional events and let the members of the campaign know what is going on and ask that they urge the return of children like Ashlie to her loving family.
