Adorers on New U.S. Policy on Family Separation

We, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, U.S. Region, have been appalled, dismayed and disheartened by our government’s new policy of separating undocumented adults and their children at our southwestern border.

The images and audio are alarming: a nursing child taken from its motherchildren at set-up shelters and tent cities wailing for their parents and unable to be comforted, a toddler calling for his “papa.” Pediatricians and child psychologists cite research that shows that a parent alone is the stability, that even under the discomfort of confinement, can stave off the stress hormones that would damage a child’s developing brain.
