Baby boy came into DFS care on December 27, 2018 after the baby was born. Mother has substantial history with the department. Both parents are reported to have substance abuse histories, though whether they are currently using has yet to be determined. Mother has severe mental health issues as well. Neither parent has the resources necessary to care for a child as both parents are reported to depend on paternal grandmother for resources. Both parents appear to be engaged with the department. The child is placed with paternal grandmother. At this time the child is in need of an attorney to represent his wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Plea Hearing set for January 24, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. in Courtroom 14.
