A newborn baby boy came into DFS care on 4/11/2021 in response to a report of physical risk to him. In this case, there is a question as to the mental health of the mother as well as her ability to provide adequate shelter for the minor. Mother is currently residing at a homeless shelter and has two other children that were previously removed from her custody. She currently has an open case with DFS concerning her 3-year-old child in which the child has been placed into foster care due to physical risk and inadequate care. The natural father was released from prison in spring 2020 and resides with his sister but could not provide an address and he is not employed. Neither parent has a care plan for the baby. 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. Next hearing(s): Review Hearing on 9/14/2021 at 2:00 pm in Courtroom 12.
