25 Dec Merry Christmas Wishes
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Merry Christmas Wishes
On this Christmas day, so many families come together to celebrate. But this is not possible for children (approximately 40,000 each year in Alabama) who are prevented from seeing or loving one parent due to broken family law practices or parental alienation. While the state receives federal money through these practices, the money comes at the cost of placing our children at risk.
I invite you to send your prayers and wishes to these families who endure forced separations, that soon they will be able to reunite, that laws will be changed, and that Courts will make better decisions.
For the families that’s able to celebrate with their children during this holiday season, enjoy your time and continue to build memories together. Our children are the future!
For the children and parents that are court-ordered to be separated during Christmas and this holiday season, remember you’re no alone and the volunteers at the Alabama Family Rights Association are fighting daily to preserve, promote, and protect family relationships. We support that scientific data that “shared parenting should be the norm for parenting plans for children of all ages.”
“A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right.
A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice.
A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We do have good news! The “Children’s Equal Access Act” which aims to maximize a child’s time with both parents will be introduced during the Alabama 2019 legislative session.
