OTTAWA, July 21 ( – David and Ruby Mielke, who had nine children taken from them by Ontario’s Children’s Aid Society eight days ago, still don’t know when they will get their children back, but they have been assured by the agency that they will be able to start seeing them again. Also, according to Mr. Mielke, the judge granted them open phone access to their children as well. This means that their children are free to call them without being monitored. The last time LifeSite spoke to Mr. Mielke, however, he still had not heard from two of his children. Also, he said that a CAS agent told him that, despite the court order, the final decision as to whether or not their children can call them rests in the hands of the foster parents.

LifeSite reported Monday that the children were taken by CAS, with the help of Ottawa-area police, a month after questions were raised in the children’s school about one of the girls having a black eye. The school authorities and CAS seemed resistant to accept the child’s own testimony that it was caused by a sibling. The CAS also took issue with the condition of the Mielke house, arguing that it was not a healthy environment for children.
