Heath and Deborah Campbell of Holland Township, New Jersey who gave their three children Nazi-inspired names, claim they have been found not guilty of child abuse and want their offspring back.
The Campbells say they gave their children , 5-year old Adolph Hitler, 4-year old Aryan Nation, and 3-year old Hozszlynn Hinler those names simply because they liked them and they were unique, and it has nothing to do with child abuse. But the children have been kept away from them for 33 months now, and they are frantic about what to do.
The UK Daily Mail
reports that officials with the New Jersey Family Court had no comment Tuesday.
Mother Deborah says,
'I don’t sleep, I don’t eat much. I miss my kids. Miss their pitter patters on the floor. It’s hard. I fall asleep with their pictures.'
The family says they were told by the judge that the children could be coming home by early December.
The brood was removed from their parents in January of 2009, after she went to a local grocery store and requested a birthday cake for Adolph. She asked that it be made to read, "Happy Birthday Adolph Hitler."
Chilling court records: The oldest child, Adolf (shown with a sister), was reported in court documents to frequently threaten to kill people
While the first store refused to make such a cake, Ms Campbell says a Walmart's bakery in Pennsylvania was okay with it.
But right after the cake incident, on the boy's birthday the parents were summoned to court on reports of child abuse or neglect.
A New Jersey appeals court ruled in 2010 that there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect in the home because of prior domestic violence. The Campbells deny any and all of it.
But court records last year revealed that both of the children's parents had been victims of childhood abuse and while currently unemployed, were suffering from unspecified physical and psychological disabilities.
Court records also reveal that the oldest child, Adolf, frequently threatened to kill people he knew.
The mother reportedly had also once given a note to her neighbor saying she was terrified of her husband who was threatening to kill her.
Authorities at the time said the children's removal from the home had nothing to do with their names.
reports that the Campbells picketed with three other people outside of the child services offices in Flemington, New Jersey on Tuesday. They were protesting the fact that they still don't have their kids, and they want them back. The couple spoke exclusively to NBC 10,
saying that the state has no right to keep their children away from them now that the court allegedly ruled that the kids were taken away without cause.
