His family’s statements represent the full scope of perspectives, 1. the sister who was watching he and the others who were scooped while their parents were out and who is upset he was taken but believes it was for the best because he was given more opportunities and higher quality of life, 2. the sister who said no matter if his life in USA was better, he never should have been taken but she appreciates the other sisters perspective, 3. the father, who passed away within the last 12 months, and was furious his son was taken, that they didn’t know for decades that he was dead or alive, not in Canada but in USA. The father never forgave the sister who was watching the children, especially upsetting to the father was her perspective that his son was actually better off for having been placed in USA.
