Tell NJ DYFS to Reunite the Jackson Family

(from an article on WorldNet Daily by Brian Fitzpatrick):

"Army Major John Jackson and his wife Carolyn, devout Christian homeschoolers with a history of serving as adoptive and foster parents, had their five children taken away in April 2010 by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services – and despite the collapse of the evidence against the Jacksons, DYFS hasn't returned the children to their parents.

During the course of a nine-month legal battle to regain custody of their children, the Jacksons say they have encountered prejudice against their religion and homeschooling as they fight a state agency determined to see the children adopted by strangers no matter what the evidence says."

Now the statutory time period has come in which the DYFS will begin to terminate the Jacksons' parental rights. We must act NOW to ensure their return.
