The child came into DFS care on February 12, 2020 after the child was born substance exposed (Methamphetamine and Methadone). Both mother and minor tested positive for Methamphetamine. Mother admitted to using Methamphetamines three days prior to giving birth as wells as using heroin four months into her pregnancy. Father admitted to using methamphetamines as well. Mother stated that she has been using drugs since she was 19 years of age and father admitted to using Methamphetamine for the past 8 years. Both parents were provided with drug test referrals but cancelled the appointments due to being evicted from their apartment. Mother has another child from a previous relationship that was removed from her custody due to mental health and drug abuse issues. Extreme drug use and lack of resources seem to be the primary issues in this case, as parents are currently homeless. The child is currently placed with Child Haven. Next hearing is a Disposition Hearing on 4/21/2020 at 9:30 am in Courtroom 14.
