More stories and more news programs are popping up these days.  Japan is moving toward signing the Hague. Unfortunately, they have already built in loopholes so that no children will have to be returned from Japan to their habitual residence.  Parents within Japan are also working hard to get legislation passed that will allow children to meet with both parents.  The media has been covering more stories related to these issues. While these stories are often a bit slanted they are never the less making it into the news.

Ryuji Kawabe beat the boy, Hayato Narita, in the face and abdomen Friday afternoon at his apartment in Tokyo, the police said.

The boy was taken to a hospital in the evening after his 22-year-old mother phoned for an ambulance.
