Welcome back...

1. Where were you the last time that someone welcomed you back?

In the Tibetan Shop this afternoon.

2. Tell us who is you favorite non-family member to hang out with?

It's Max. He's not family, but he's my spiritual family.
Pity we don't see each other often.

3. What was the last thing that happened to anger you?

What angers me is that Child Protection Services was not able to see a normal family and listen to everything we said with their hearts. It's clear they had a particular frame of mind and they tried to do their best to interpret everything with the wordt intention.
I feel our good name has been brought down in a very bad way, I feel they don't listen to people, and what makes me really, really angry is that the rights of children are trodden with big black feet and that those who have to stand firm for the law accept that Child Services just says and writes something without any proof at all. Two social workers and some people on the background who are fed by them create on their frame of mind a picture of a family, based on two hours of contact with each person. They don't use proper tests, no proper observations, nothing a psychologist uses to base conclusions on.
Is that how we deal with the lives of children and their families? Is that how we deal with the rights of children?

4. What was the last thing that you saw that was shocking to see?

The photos of an accident.
Journalist should have some ethical standards, because children have a look at the paper too.

5. What is your favorite thing to do on Saturday besides Saturday 9?

Visit the Tibetan Shop.

6. Have you had your summer vacation yet? If yes tell us about it.

No. nothing at all.
We have to wait what wednesday brings.
Hopefully the judge will see sense and has wisdom enough to see we're good people.
Vacation won't be possible though, as the lawyers cost almost 200 euro per hour.

7. Pick out one of your cousins and tell us about them.

I don't have a lot of family. No cousin.

8. Do you have any special plans for next week?

Courtcase on wednesday. My plan is to cancell it. LOL!

9. At what age will you consider yourself old and why?

Right now I feel old.
The past weeks have eaten a lot of my good looks and my young feelings.
I also feel a lot wiser than those who were dealing with us.
One of the things that moved me most is that the girlsw have more care and compassion for other people than those people of Child Services. There's a fast difference between saying so and living according to the lifestyle of care and compassion.
