Tell NJ DYFS to Reunite the Jackson Family

    1. Petition by

      Vesper Stamper

      orange, NJ

(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.

      I would like to know what happened to the division of church and state? When a government agency can tell a person what religious beliefs are correct and incorrect, there is a problem in the government systems at play. I may not go to church weekly, or pray before every meal for that matter, but believe that my children have been raised to worship God, and to have full faith that he will overcome all. I pray that the Jacksons, who have stepped up in a Godly manner, receive the justice they deserve, gain their children back, and that they have one heck of a lawsuit against the New Jersey DYFS.

      Shame on the system for taking these children from their Christian parents! I grew up with the Jackson family and these are good people! These children that he adopted where medically challenged coming into his home. He and his wife have worked hard for their children and gave those kids lots of love. You need to reunite the family as soon as possible and let those kids grow up with their true family.
