I am Denise. I was made aware of your organization through You Tube.

I am looking for help. I need someone to work with me to stop CPS and Family Courts lying to remove children from good mothers just to give them to their reported abusers. The courts relize a good parent uses all resourses to protect their child from abuse. So all involved make money as long as they prevent the protective parent from protecting the child from abuse.

Thank you for your time.


Greetings to all friends, I am very please to be part of this valuable network and looking forward to work together to achieve our share goals. Best Wishes from Afghanistan

Hi Tobias, Thank you accepting me as a member. Right now I have a lot of questions, but I’ll take a look at the website and, if later I have any doubts, I’ll come back to this message. I am currently working on public private partnership projects in Mexico, trying to contribute to the development of infrastructure to promote clean energy and sustainability.

I would be happy to help in other projects alike. I believe that the process of civilization and the evolution of technology must have an impact in the general quality of life and world sustainability.
