Default Seven Texas children found in Nigeria orphanage

Seven Texas children found in Nigeria orphanage
Youths, thin and covered with bites, returned to state
Tuesday, August 17, 2004 Posted: 12:50 PM EDT (1650 GMT)

HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- Seven Texas children were discovered abandoned at a Nigerian orphanage, ravaged by disease and malnutrition, and have been brought back to the state.

Child Protective Services, which received emergency custody of the children Monday, is investigating accusations that the children's adoptive mother in Houston abandoned them in Nigeria in October while going to work in Iraq as a private contractor. The children returned to Texas on Friday.

Three of the children were hospitalized with malaria and later released, said CPS spokeswoman Estella Olguin. The youths were thin and covered with mosquito bites, infections and scars.

The three boys and four girls, ranging from 8 to 16, were discovered in late July by a visiting Texas missionary who notified American lawmakers.

"It's horrible, horrible," Olguin said. "I haven't seen anything like it. Seven children fending for themselves in a foreign country where they have no family members."

Now, they are living in two Houston foster homes.

Four siblings were adopted from Houston in 1996, followed by a set of three siblings from Dallas in 2001, according to authorities who interviewed the children and their adoptive mother.

The woman, whose name was not released, took all the children in October to Nigeria, where a relative of her fiance lived. The children were enrolled in school and the mother returned to Houston about 30 days later. She went to work in Iraq in April.

But the children were later removed from school because payment for their tuition stopped and lived in a wooden shack. Nigerian child-protection authorities found the children malnourished and sick and moved them to an orphanage in late July.

A minister from a San Antonio church who overheard the children speaking with American accents interviewed them, then alerted U.S. congressmen who called CPS.

State officials will determine whether criminal charges will be filed against the adoptive mother, who is due back in court August 26.

She almost got away with it. She better stay in Iraq and get cozy with the terrorists (yeah right) if she doesn't want to go to jail.

In truth, she had taken the children last October to Nigeria, where a relative of her fiance lived, and enrolled them in school, said Estella Olguin, Harris County CPS spokeswoman. About a month later, she returned to Houston. This April she went to Iraq as a civilian food-service worker.

Her children ended up in an orphanage after their tuition money stopped and the relative apparently deserted them at a home.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The three boys and four teenage girls ranging in age from 8 to 16 returned to Houston on Friday after Warren Beemer, a youth pastor from a San Antonio, church found them in the orphanage.

Beemer said they cheered up as they talked about how much they liked the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Rockets center Yao Ming. They jeered when he mentioned the Los Angeles Lakers and clapped when he told them Shaquille O'Neal had been traded to the Miami Heat. Then, he said, they put their hands over their hearts and sang the national anthem.

Olguin said Tuesday that the Harris County CPS was concentrating on getting medical and psychological care for the children and getting them enrolled in school.

Upon their return to Houston, three of the children were treated for malaria at a local hospital and released.

Since then, the three boys have been placed in one foster home and the girls placed in another.

News of this has somehow reached Saddam Hussain, "who said in a statement
that children of such a family need aggresive treatment in order to make them
viable to become the new Iraqi resistance.

An ex-chambermaid of Saddam was interveiwed later, and was quoted as saying
that Saddam was insane in the membrane.

And they all lived happily ever after.
