Think the Unthinkable

Places you have never been before seem strangely familiar. You hear a voice and  just for a moment, you  turn to look. Dreams of  faces you have never seen appear to you as you sleep.  Surrounded by family, just for a split second, you feel an outsider. You might  mention the odd thing or two to your family but they casually dismiss them. There is no one particular thing that you can explain as not right,  there is just something. It is a feeling deep inside, a feeling of something missing. Like a story book that has lost some of its pages. You can skip the missing pages and still follow the story but you are still aware of the missing pages.

I can make the missing pages comparison because I have experienced the unthinkable. More importantly though, I discovered reality. I ask you, for a moment, try and think the unthinkable. The only parents you have ever known. The parents who you love and who love you with all their hearts. imagine, if you can, that  you weren't born into the family you love and know. Imagine your life started very differently.  

Adoption 'awareness' is very much in the media but being 'aware' means accepting that corruption DOES exist in  adoption. Children ARE stolen and sold for adoption. Could YOU be a stolen child? Unthinkable you say, but is it? Stolen children are quickly molded into the role of official off spring. Would the adopters of a stolen child tell the child. NO. So, I ask you again, think the unthinkable.

On July 24, 1991 on the Greek Island of Kos, a two year old child vanished  without a trace. Little Ben Needham was playing in the Greek sunshine outside the family home, within the space of five minutes he was gone. Bens' mum Kerry was let down atrociously by the Greek authorities (and the UK, where it seems, unless the missing child is that of a middle class family it is just yesterdays news) who took the stance that no Greek person would steal or hurt a child".   The refusal to consider Greek involvement meant the investigation into Bens' abduction was a farce from the beginning.

Greece has a long history of  trafficking and illegal adoption. After world war 2 and  Civil war the Greek economy was on its knees. The 1950's saw 100's if not 1000s of children illegally shipped to America from Greece for adoption.  

Was it coincidence that at the same time the Greek economy appeared to recover? A much fuller picture of Greek adoptions has emerged since the 1995 social  turbulence which resulted in the unearthing of mass criminal acts involving adoption. These finding,  have forced a change in the ancient Greek adoption laws, and in 1996 adoptees finally gained rights. .

The possibility exists that  Ben Needham was abducted for the adoption market. Sixteen years have gone by since Kerry and her family held Ben, touched Ben, kissed Ben, sixteen long years that will have turned Ben from that chubby little two year old whos' face we know so well, into an eighteen year old young man. While that possibility exists I ask every young man just for a moment to think the unthinkable. It could well be the unthinkable that holds the key to Bens' whereabouts.


Should the term be "legalized abductions"?

I'm from the Closed Era, but I fear we're still in the hey-day of corrupt politics and profit shareholding, all in the name of open trade of international adoption. 

In America, children are abducted every day by lunatics for various reasons.  It's every mother's worst nightmare, and every father's end knowing "some stranger took my baby, and I don't know what to do to."

Could you imagine learning that the lunatic who grabbed your child was a baby-broker, and your baby got sold to a couple,who lives in another country, and that transaction is not only considered a legal adoption, but you as the parent are forbidden to search for your child?  Imagine the government telling you:  Legally, you must wait until the child reaches his 18 birthday before you can have contact with your son again.

From the S.E.A.S.Y.P  Greek Adoptees Reunion Registry  Adoption Law page,  (

According to the proposed plan, every adoption will from now on be made with guarantee judicial procedure, whereas pure private adoptions will be made only in case of relatively relation between the child and the family that adopts it.

The adoptions of adults are forbidden, whereas an adoptee can not be prevented from getting to know his biological parents, after the competition of the 18th year of his life.

The issue of the right of searching of the biological parents that without reason lost their children should be reexamined. Where ever there is no consent of the biological parents, but there is hooking of the baby, whether with the method of the fictitious deaths or with the method of the fictitious attributions, the right of searching should be given by law by the public prosecutor's offices.

The public statistics don't indicate such a big deal or menace in a monetary sense, indicating the demand for babies should lead to child abductions, but one has to wonder just how greedy and freaky people will get just to have what others have.  If there's the supply-demand mentality being sold, who's to say there aren't people buying into it?

Could there be such a world of difference between public (foster-care) adoptions and private adoptions that it can't be regulated?  Has the industry gotten that big and out of control?  Or is that the goal?  [Globalize child-swapping and family chopping]
