Proverbs 21:30

Norwegian Couple Whose Children Were Seized Over Christian Upbringing Reunited With Infant Son

Bodnariu-compressedA Norwegian couple whose five children who were seized by the country’s child welfare services last November have now been reunited with their infant son.

“Baby Ezekiel has been returned to his parents! Praise the Lord!” wrote Cristian Ionescu, a Chicago-area pastor who is serving as a spokesperson for the Bodnariu family.

As previously reported, in November, the Barnevernet seized Marius and Ruth Bodnariu’s two daughters, two sons and baby Ezekiel. The two eldest children were reportedly removed from school without their parents knowledge, and then Barnevarnet representatives arrived with police at the Bodnariu home, where welfare services seized the remaining children, minus the baby.

The organization returned the following day and removed the infant as well after the family tried to resolve the matter after being arrested.

Marius Bodnariu’s brother, Daniel, who is a pastor, explained in an online statement that the matter began when the children’s principal contacted welfare services after expressing concerns over how they were being raised, including in regard to the family’s Christian beliefs.
