This child was born substance exposed in September of 2018. She tested positive for opiates at the time of her birth. Her mother has struggled for years with a heroin addiction. Once the baby recovered from her symptoms of withdrawal, she was placed with a relative. There are other relatives willing to take this child if needed as well. The mother is not engaged with DFS. The mother identified a possible father, but his name is not on the child’s birth certificate, nor is he engaged with DFS. This baby needs an attorney to represent her wishes and legal rights to representation as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is a Permanency Planning Hearing set for August 21, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., in Courtroom 22.
