Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 31, 2007

As the past year has lapsed, exposure to the problems of domestic violence and child abuse that fathers and their children suffer in family court has brought positive response from readers, voters and families affected in Clay and Platte Counties in Missouri that wish to take action as well as significant responses from other jurisdictions across the United States.

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the ongoing problem of child custody interference by mother’s who make unsubstantiated claims of abuse against fathers to interfere with the parent-child relationship, author Bill Stoneking releases a LULU exclusive edition, “The Diary of a Patient Man, A Father’s Struggle F4J

Florida Family to Be Featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Tallahassee, FL (Vocus) April 10, 2009

More than ten years ago, George and Barbara Kadzis contacted Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS) to get some information on adopting a child. Little did they know how dramatically their lives would change as a result of that call.

Originally, George and Barbara considered adopting an infant and contacted CHS as they were familiar with the organization’s rich history in finding permanent homes for children. But when they learned about a young Chinese girl with a cleft palate, they were compelled to bring her to America. Barbara, a teacher who was herself adopted, and George, a dentist, continued to work through CHS’ International Adoption Program to locate children with special needs, eventually adding a total of six children to their family, five of whom were physically challenged.

“This is such an exceptional family,” said Helen Ervin, Adoption Manager for the CHS North Central Division. “George and Barbara knew that these children would not have had adequate medical care if left in China. They would have grown up to be totally isolated from society because of their physical challenges.”

ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition crew learned about the family after their home had been ravaged by hurricanes and George had been diagnosed with brain cancer. This past February, the show’s crew arrived at the Kadzis home, where they spent a week rebuilding the house and making modifications to accommodate the challenges of the five physically challenged children.

Sunday evening, millions of viewers will tune into ABC where they will get to know the Kadzis family.

“Tragically, George was admitted to the hospital the evening before the family found out they’d been chosen for the home makeover,” noted Ervin. George passed away in March without ever returning to his home.

CHS, which focuses its work on finding parents for children, not children for parents, finalized a record 1,090 adoptions during the 2007/2008 fiscal year of which 1,019 were public adoptions involving children from foster care.

Since Children’s Home Society of Florida’s founding in 1902, adoption has been a cornerstone of the nationally accredited organization’s broad spectrum of services to children, parents and families. To date, more than 35,000 children have found their forever families through CHS.

Latest Edition of Absolute Rights Newsletter Sent to Global Readers


Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

Absolute Rights, the freedom fighting news and opinion site, has issued its newest Digital Newsletter and sent it to the tens of thousands of subscribers who receive the biweekly collection of online articles.

The main article comes from guest contributor Kevin Jackson, and covers the idea of President Obama being Americas father.

By now you likely have heard that Chris Rock considers Barack Obama to be Americas father, Jackson wrote. If that is true, then would somebody call Child Protective Services and find us foster parents?!

Jackson is a radio show host and bestselling author of Sexy Brilliance and Other Political Lies. A highly-sought national speaker and consultant, Jackson writes for TheBlackSphere.net and Big Government.

Contenders Corner is the Newsletter section focusing on political issues within the Beltway, and this editions article was contributed by Karl Dobias. The article compares the current Congressional makeup with a summer music festival lineup.

Now, in the grand scheme of things, Congress is nothing like a music festivalold white guys talking and, more often than not, disagreeing with each other when it comes to decisions on bills and policies, versus a two to three day outdoor music and arts festival that celebrates expression, love, and music, Dobias wrote in the article. But what do these two seemingly opposite things have in common? Disappointment!

The Crisis Ops article was contributed by SurvivalLife.com Managing Editor Above Average Joe, who shares his recent bulk trash experience. While emptying his home of junk he didnt need, he saw firsthand the ingenuity and practicality of some wise trash pickers.

As I began toss my unwanted items out on the curb I witnessed a live action version of the old adage One mans trash is another mans treasure. There were some items that were gone before I even made it back with another armful, Joe wrote.

The last section of the Newsletter is the Global Watch article, which was written by Grady Kerr. The subject of the article is Maureen OConnor, the widow of the Jack in the Box founder who has gambled away her inheritance.

Prosecutors said her gambling activity exceeded $ 1 BILLION over the period 2000 2008. This money was lost from mostly playing video poker in casinos, wrote Kerr. Shes charged with money laundering as she took this gambling money from the R. P. Foundation, the nonprofit foundation her husband started and she managed.
