Today it is the last day of March 2012 and I want to take time off to reflect a little about the headlines during this month and my focus will be on the children.
In a previous post I mentioned the Amy-case. A girl who was adopted to Denmark and as I am sad to say hasn’t been treated very well so far by the social services.
Hurtful people have stated that she was part of a sister’s package. When parents want to adopt some countries present the nice little baby and when the parents are hooked the adoption agency suddenly state that they have to take an older brother or sister as well. It is basically a scam because the parents cannot say no in that situation because everyone knows that you have to try to keep siblings together.
It is difficult for an older child to be part of the society in Denmark. We have an education system second to none. Danes who have been exchange students know that you cannot get credit from the foreign schools because they simply are not at the same level as here in Denmark.
So Amy got a difficult time in Denmark. By pure luck she then found that she fitted well into the foster family the social services sent her to once her adoptive parents gave up. But the system wasn’t finished with her and they wanted to put her in a group home after a year at the foster family. A specific group home mostly known in the public as a place where the adult care keepers drink alcohol during work hours and fight the teens.
She is at the group now and the social services are busy taking her supporters out of business. They have filed charges against the foster parents; they have fired her assessor from the organization Children’s welfare. They will go far to secure that Amy is isolated from the world and have her to submit to their agenda.
I believe that children should be spared from being subjected to an adoption process here. I urge adoption agencies to think twice before sending children here to Denmark because they are not treated that well by our social system.
Times are hard for our teenagers. They cannot grow up expecting to receive a pension at a fixed age. It is difficult because every single Dane work to age 40 and then they settle having reached the potential of their career. For the next 20 years it is all about surviving until retirement. Or at least it was so in the past because now no one knows when they can retire.
Because they are unable to plan, they cannot choose what kind of education which would serve them best. In fact they don’t even know if it helps to take an education at all.
But they are forced to spent time in classes or lose welfare. In fact if anyone below 25 is seeking welfare they will be introduced to forced labor. Yes you are reading correct. Forced Labor! It is Denmark year 2012. Who can we blame? The damn lazy people in the southern part of Europe who haven’t seen a day’s work their entire life.
I have spoken with several who have spent several years taking form 10 over and over again. It is the best advice their caseworker can give them in order to avoid to be pushed out into forced labor. Teenagers and young adults are stuck taking the same classes and the same subjects over and over again just as if they were staring in the Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day”.
I wish I could say anything positive to your youth but I haven’t. I can only ask everyone to pray and take day at the time. It is everyone for themselves.
That’s all for March 2012.
