If you have followed the Bodnariu drama closely, chances are you came across Barnevernet employee Mr. Knut Nygaard’s comments somewhere in social media, blogs, or international newspaper articles. He is one of the chief defenders of the Norwegian CPS and their methods including the so-called “attachment theory.”
Knut has been very active on Delight in Truth in past few weeks and has given us insight into how Barnevernet thinks and operates. Many of his comments have confirmed our suspicions that trivial matters trigger CPS investigations with acute interventions of confiscation in some cases.
I want to thank him for opening up to us about his background (see comment here).
Barnevernet left an imprint on his life early on. Knut was adopted at a very young age into a Christian home when his biological parents willingly gave him up because they felt it would be better for his future. He knows about his 5 biological siblings, his parents, and their contact information, but he has not felt the desire to contact them even though he received the message that they miss him.
Dear Knut, it is not normal for a family to give up an infant. Reading your story I cannot help but see that you trivialize this as a transaction inside Barnevernet. An exchange of sorts.
I have four children and have been blessed by God with a wonderful career in medicine, but even I if had no career, and no resources I would never give up my children. I would instead work 24 hours a day to provide for them and be a father to them.
As a professing Christian, you should know the remote possibility that a mother would give up her baby. Here is what the Word of God says: “Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!”
The possibility that a mother would just give up or forget her baby is extremely remote. Unless one lives in Norway where Barnevernet has brainwashed the good citizens of this country that this sort of thing can be normalized.
Dear Knut, it is not normal to be indifferent to the person who has brought you into this world.
It is not normal for Norway to facilitate confiscation and adoption of children in cases where there is no evidence of abuse or addiction. More than that, it is criminal to prevent biological parents from seeing their children and getting them back, especially when the children were removed because of trivial matters like in the Bodnariu case. How much worse is it when the Bodnarius popped up on the CPS radar because they were “too Christian?”
I am glad you had a “normal” life in a Christian home, but have you considered that perhaps you do not remember the trauma you went through when you were forced to exchange families?
Have you considered that perhaps your biological parents and siblings have regretted their decision to give you up and have perhaps repented of this sin? Maybe they wanted you back afterwards but Barnevernet prevented it due to the “attachment theory.”
I challenge you to think about these issues in light of God’s Word.
I challenge you to see the Bodnariu suffering at the hands of Barnevernet and stop defending CPS in this case. You may have cases of alcoholism, drug abuse, sexual abuse where you can defend CPS. But not in the Bodnariu situation. They love God, they live according to His Word, and they are a model family. If all the families in the world would be like the Bodnariu family, we would have heaven on Earth.
I challenge you to support Bodnariu and talk to your bosses about them.
Tell CPS to return the Bodnariu children immediately.
