About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

Parental Rights

Hey everyone!  I  wanted to share this with you.  If you want to continue to have the right as a parent to make decisions for your children you definitely need to check out this website (parentalrights.org) & sign the petition.

From the parental rights website 
"The right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children has been recognized and upheld for centuries. But the tide is turning in our nation. Today, parental rights are coming under assault from judges who deny or refuse to recognize parental rights. Adding further danger to the child-parent relationship, international law which seeks to undermine the parental role is advancing on the horizon. Together, these threats are converging to create a “perfect storm” that looms over the child-parent relationship. 

The only solution to the approaching attack on the child-parent relationship is a constitutional amendment securing the rights of parents to raise their children. Only a constitutional amendment will ensure that federal judges protect the fundamental right of parents to raise their children. And only a constitutional amendment will override international law that seeks to undermine the parental role.  

Key Senators have been promoting U.S. ratification of this international treaty since early 2009. If ratified, the UN-CRC would radically alter the flow of power in the United States, taking away the authority of parents to decide matters pertaining to the lives of their children, and giving that power away to the United Nations. An 18-member international panel would decide what is best for American children and, hence, for America's future."

So PLEASE  go to the website: parentalrights.org-- research it and SIGN the petition if you would like to continue to make choices regarding your children's education, medical care, religion, & everyday behavior. I also highly encourage you to spread the word to your friends, family & blog readers.
