A 16-year-old girl and her two younger siblings came into care in November 13, 2021 after their parents were arrested and further investigation revealed that the family was homeless, there was an extensive history of domestic violence, untreated mental health concerns, and that the parents were abusing drugs, including heroin and meth. This case is specific to only the 16-year-old. When the kids first entered care, their foster parent reported they were constantly bickering, defiant, and aggressive among other behaviors. The 16-year-old exhibited apparent cognitive delays that had been unaddressed and the results of her neuropsychological evaluation are pending. She is in therapy and tutoring prior to moving in with maternal grandmother. They initially were having phone calls with their parents, but the parents have disappeared and do not communicate with them nor with the case worker. The permanency plan is guardianship to their maternal grandmother in Michigan. At this time, this teenage girl is in need of an attorney to represent her legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Review Hearing on 11/10/22 at 3:00 pm in Courtroom 12.
