3 year old child and 4 month old child were placed into protective custody after their mother was placed on a legal hold and taken to Valley Hospital for evaluation. Mother disputes what happened to lead to her admission to the psych ward and provided inconsistent information during her interview with DFS. It is clear that the family lacks resources: the mother reported receiving eviction notices before Christmas and gave different addresses during the interview. The mother also has unaddressed mental health needs, as she tried to give away the younger child to unknown sources and has no provisions for the child. She refuses to dress or care for the younger child. The older child was fully dressed and well-groomed. These siblings need an attorney to advocate for their legal rights and wishes as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Plea Haring set for January 15, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 22.
