The removal of children from their families should never be among the first options to consider.
One month ago, the five Bodnariu children were finally returned to their parents. But what have been other consequences of the case? Norwegian Christian journalist Tarjei Gilje shares his views.
How should Christians and non-believers think about family life and the state? With Peter Saunders (CEO, CMF), Tarjei Gilje (journalist, Dagen), Paul Susman (Legal officer, European Comission), Einar C. Salvesen (Psychologist, Columbia Consulting Ltd.) and Adam Szabados (pastor, Evangelical Church Veszprém). Recorded in Wisla, Poland, during ELF 2016.
Statement confirms the “return home of all of their five children (…) We thank you all for your love, support, prayers”.
As Romanians, we have passed through many great battles against our own government, battles over state laws that were against the law of God. During our history, the Ottoman Empire wanted our children, just as other empires did.
The Bodnariu family will also see the two older boys twice a week for two hours. “The battle for the children continues”, the family's spokesman wrote in a statement.
“Whenever it is possible, the authorities work for minors to have good living conditions”, Minister-Counsellor in Spain says. Demonstrations arranged worldwide to support the Bodnariu family, many in Europe.
