Home for her birthday

CBN reports that Melissa Busekros is home with her parents but that "how long authorities will allow her to remain at home is unclear." Since she is now 16, she has more rights over where she lives; so, according to this article on, "as soon as she turned 16, Melissa Busekros - the same girl a state official of the Jugendamt (Youth Welfare Office) falsely described as happy in state custody – headed out the door for home." There's more information at that site and also here. [Update: Diary of 1 hits the mark again with her comments on the story.]

Thanks for the kind words. I've been accused of getting too emotional over this issue, but "just the facts, ma'am" isn't my thing. How can you not be passionate about a mother losing her child? I, for one, will not waste intellectual words about "cultural differences" and let the Germans be free to make their own laws and the U.S. be free to make their own laws. Not when it involves persecution, and indeed, history shows us where that kind of attitude leads.
