A 3 week old baby girl came into DFS care in December 2018 when she was born to incarcerated parents; it is unclear how much longer they will be in jail. Her mother has a history of drug use, although the baby did not test positive at the time of her birth. The baby’s older half sibling is placed with her maternal grandmother, but that grandmother reports that she cannot handle a newborn. There are other maternal relatives who may be able to take the baby. This baby is in need of an attorney to advocate for her legal rights and wishes as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Hearing Plea on January 16, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 22.
