Two siblings, a 4-year-old and a 3-year-old, came into DFS care in August 2021 due to the 4-year-old having numerous marks and bruises that cover multiple areas on his body. Mother admits to physically disciplining with a belt. The family has a prior substantiated case for physical abuse earlier this year. The mother does not have a relationship with the children’s natural father, who sexually abused her 12-year-old daughter, who is also in care. There are no family or other friends to possibly assist with placement and the children were transported to Child Haven. These children are in need of an attorney to represent their wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Calendar Call Hearing for Father on 01/24/2022 at 3:00 p.m.; Adjudicatory Trial on 02/08/2022 at 10;00 a.m., and Review Hearing on 02/09/2022 at 1:00 p.m. in Courtroom 9.
