Case Number: 2022-015109

A child was brought into DFS care after him and his mother were living in a car and were involved in a car accident. The mother was hospitalized and there was no one to care for the child at the time. The mother has severe mental health concerns and is/was unwilling to get treatment or provide proof of treatment. She was deemed to be unfit because her mental health issues did not allow for her to safely parent the child. The child is currently living with friends of the mother and wants to be adopted by them. The mother had her rights terminated and is now appealing the decision. This child is in need of an attorney to represent him through the appellate process. Next hearing(s): Answering Brief due on 12/08/2022.
