I would like to say "THANKYOU" to each person who signed my petition. The support Pastor Beckenham has is truely admirable. I have decided to close the petition however, due to Pastor contacting me to say thank you, but also stressing firstly he would like Baby Joan to be encouraged back to her birth parents, and secondly the hype the media have created surrounding this incident.
I am closing the petition under the circumstances to show respect for Pastor Beckenham and his family during this difficult time. We all wish Baby Joan the best for the future...and hopefully to have a loving set of parents.
Pastor Matthew Beckenham of Haberfield Baptist Church, found "Baby Joan" a newborn infant in freezing conditions in a cardboard box on the steps of the church. He was keen to have the little girl returned to her mother,but that wasn't possible.
He and his family want to adopt / forster this little one. The community services have placed a ban on the Pastor from visiting "Joan" and do not want him to adopt her.
This petition is to remove the ban and allow "Joan" to be adopted into the loving family that found her. PLEASE SIGN..
We, the undesigned, call on NSW Australian Community Services to remove the ban placed on Pastor Beckenham of Haberfield Baptist Church NSW seeing Baby Joan and allow him and his family to adopt her.
