Little Sinners —Church and Child Trafficking
This is one of the most important books to come out of Belgium in recent years.
It delves into the fate of young women —often mere girls — who became pregnant.From the beginning of time, this was a no-no. For the girl, and for her family. Adoption was often the only answer.
Enter the nuns who operated an adoption service in Flanders. Newborn infants were removed from their young birthmothers and sold on to adoptive parents.
The result? Countless mothers searching for years for the babies stolen from them;
children looking for their true mothers.
Yet that is but one aspect of the scandals and horrors contained in this volume.
Carine Hutsebaut, in her inimitable way, casts light on the dark world of paedosexuals and child murderers in Belgium and elsewhere.
