Case Number: 2020-003139

In Children's Attorneys Project (Abuse/Neglect Cases)

6 month old baby boy came into DFS care on April 24, 202 due to mother having severe developmental delays combined with alleged drug use, which prevents her from being able to learn how to properly care for the minor, as he has ongoing health complications resulting from being born extremely premature . Minor was in the hospital for the better part of 6 months dealing with health issues while hospital staff attempted to train mother in routine care. Hospital staff has determined that they are unable to release the child to the mother, as she has not been able to show that she can care for the child’s severe medical issues. Father is not in the picture or engaged with the department, mother or the child at this time. Mother appears to be willing to engage with the department, it appears that she is an alleged drug user, along with a the lack of support system that are the main issue in this case. The child is currently discharged from the hospital and placed into foster care. Next hearing is a Review Hearing on 10/6/2020 at 3:00 pm in Courtroom 14.
