Hello to all the friends, and family of Angela and Kevin Blank, As many of you know Angela and Kevin have been a wonderful asset to the foster care system in New York by caring for numerous children over the period of 4 years. They have been caring for 4 little girls over the last two years and were hoping to be able to adopt them in the near furture. They were in the process of rebuilding their house in order to make it bigger so that the children would have a comfortable home to grow up in. The week before Christmas Kevin spanked one of the little girls because of a misbehaviour. The little girl has a history of bruising easily and sure enough ended up with a bruise mark on her bottom. The next day the girls had visitation with their mother, who most of the time did not show up for visitations, Angela informed the SS worker of the incident and when the mother asked about it she was told what happened. The mother who has had a history of harrassing Angela and Kevin pressed charges and the police charged Kevin with two counts. One of child abuse and one of child harrasment. We all know that these charges are unfounded; however, the mother is determined to make their lives miserable. Wednesday, January 21, 2009 Angela and Kevin will have a court hearing in which the judge will decide whether or not the case will go to trial. If the case is allowed to move forward Kevin is facing up to a year in prison. We are asking everyone to first of all, pray and fast for Angela and Kevin, and then please sign this petition and tell your friends about it. We want Angela and Kevin as well as the court system of New York know where we stand. Behind Angela and Kevin! Thank you and God Bless!
