  1. Rick,

    Thanks for your comment. Let’s hope that there will soon be other nations that follow Brazil’s example.

    Wow, with all of the injustice and biased rulings in our court system, FINALLY something that really is “in the best interest of the children!” Praise God…

    My wife and I run a global ministry for families that have been affected by Parental Alienation called Keeping Families Connected. We see much more darkness than light on a daily basis, when helping the broken and hurting families that contact us with their stories of injustice and insanity in the courts.

    It is a rare and wonderful thing when we hear an encouraging report of the family courts doing the right thing for our children and families. Bravo to the individuals responsible for fighting this form of child abuse!

    We have several videos on YouTube, one of which is called “Parental Alienation – The Ultimate Hate Crime”. PA is a terrible form of child abuse.

    Thank you for sharing this article. I will be bookmarking this site when I leave. Keep up the great work!
