The mother of a 1-year-old and a 2-year-old left them alone, supposedly supervised by their 10-year-old sibling, for hours with no way to contact her in case of emergency. As a result, the three children came into DFS care on or about March 19, 2022. The mother has mental health issues and a history of drug use so severe that she has been hospitalized. She has demonstrated poor judgment and leaves the children unsupervised. She sometimes leaves the children with other people without making proper care arrangements and then disappears for weeks. She was arrested for leaving the children with the 10-year-old and is released now. At this time, the 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): Adjudicatory Trial on 5/26/2022 at 1:00 pm; Review Hearing on 8/2/2022 at 11:00 am in Courtroom 18.
