A 1-month-old boy came into DFS care on September 16, 2021 due to concerns of being substance-exposed. He tested positive for multiple drugs at birth and his mother was also positive for the same substances. After the baby’s birth, the mother was placed on a legal 2000 hold for psychosis. She confirmed she abuses prescription medication and also reported she is homeless and cannot provide a stable residence for her child. The mother was referred to Westcare but did not follow through on this referral. The mother has previous children removed from her care who are placed in guardianship. This infant boy is in need of an attorney to represent his legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next hearing(s): Plea Hearing on 10/14/2021 @ 9:45 am in Courtroom 11.
