A 10 year old girl and a 6 year old boy were removed from their mother’s care pursuant to a warrant issued over growing concerns with the condition of the home. A school official contacted CPS regarding the appearance and health of a sibling; that sibling came to school smelling of urine and having a substance, believed to be dog feces, on his feet and face. That sibling, along with another, have been placed with their paternal relatives pursuant to a temporary guardianship. There are no relatives in Nevada to take these two children and they are currently in foster care. The mother and the live-in boyfriend (who is the father to these children only) refuse to take drug tests, but have admitted to smoking marijuana. The 10 year old child has bipolar disorder, and is not quite functioning at a 10 year old cognitive level. The 6 year old little boy is suspected to have autism spectrum disorder. The children need an attorney to advocate for these children as to their legal rights and wishes to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is a Review Hearing set for May 22, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. in Courtroom 22.
