CONNIE REGULI has practiced family law throughout Middle Tennessee for over 20 years. She has served as a prosecutor in Nashville, Tennessee as well. She has seen real child abuse and convicted a child murderer. She also has the largest verdict in the State of Tennessee awarded to children against their parents for the abuse they suffered in childhood. She has authored over 40 appeals heard before the Tennessee Court of Appeals; Tennessee Supreme Court; and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Attorney Reguli says that the child welfare agencies across this country have turned child abuse into an industry and have engaged other profiteers, with the help of federal funding, to create a government sanctioned child trafficking industry.

The states have become so dependent on these funds that they must maintain the number of children passing through the foster care system every year. On any given day in the United States, 400,000 children are in foster care.

This issue has become a crisis and the people must demand a change. It will NOT come for our leaders. Too much money is at stake.

Mark Ludwig has a seven-year-old son. He says Levi is "everything to me and the reason I will continue to fight for children everywhere to have equal access to both fit, willing, and able parents." His primary goal is to educate and empower those wanting to make a change. He is currently writing a book, "In Case I'm Not Here - Life Lessons from a Father to His Son." Mark plans to use the proceeds from the book to help fund awareness and help pass legislation.

Mark has served on the Missouri Small Business Policy Council, was a former candidate for the US Congress, and founder of Americans for Equal Shared Parenting. He is the National Legislative Liaison Director, TFRM, and actively working on family law legislation in Missouri and helping in other states. Mark's lobbying skills and techniques have brought him national recognition that makes listening to his techniques and strategies worthwhile. No matter what the changes that you seek, "you catch more flies with honey ..... "
