Germany: Homeschooled Teen Reunited with Family

Many of you have been following the story of Melissa Busekros, who was taken from her home by police on February 1, 2007, just because her family homeschooled her.

On this past Monday, her 16th birthday, Melissa determined that she would decide for herself where she would live.

In the early morning hours of Monday, April 23, Melissa left her foster family and made her way back to her own family! Of course, her family was delighted to see her, and they made plans to celebrate her 16th birthday. And we rejoice with the Busekros family now that their family has been reunited.

However, threats remain and your prayers are still needed. Because Melissa left on her own it is possible that the Youth Welfare authorities may decide to forcibly remove her again. At age 16 more rights and privileges are recognized but it is not certain what the state's response will be.

We want to recognize the work done by our friends and partners who have invested time, energy and resources in working to encourage and equip the Busekros family. There were media sites like WorldNet Daily, LifeSite and CBN. There was the important work of Joel Thornton's International Human Rights Group and many German homeschool leaders and supporters of the family including the Netzwerk Bildungsfreiheit and Schuzhe, two of the most active organizations working for change in Germany today.
