    That does sound really awful.

    But, mainly I'm pro what the HSLDA is saying...it should be a human right no matter where you are born, for a parent to make the choices for their children. And this being taken away from these people is wrong no matter what. Even if they were being put in the best schools in the world, with the most loving, caring people, etc etc. It should always be a parents right to raise their children how they see fit (as long as no abuse is happening). And for that to be taken away, people have to stand up.

    I think there are two different German families in the news regarding homeschooling.

    One family, the Wunderlichs are living in Germany. They just had their kids taken after years of fighting with the government there.

    Another family, the Romeikes had immigrated to the USA on ground of religious persecution. They had set up a homestead here based on that status and were living legally, working productively and homeschooling in TN. After several years their immigration status as religious asylum seekers was challenged and overturned by the current administration in Washington. It is the Romeike family that just had good news.

    Thanks for the clarification! Poop...I thought the thread was about the Romeike family!

    Still...I'm glad the Romeike's are being protected, here, finally!

    The Wunderlichs do indeed have a terribly sad story. I hope they inspire some changes of heart in Germany. Their story is heartbreaking.
