Update:NH Newborn baby girl taken from parents by DCYF for past abuse or political affiliation? #tcot #news #kids
Since last nights post, http://littlebytesnews.amplify.com/2010/10/09/nhdcyf-take-custody-of-a-newborn-because-parents-missed-a-court-order-therapy-programown-weapons-tcot-news/, it appears the parents have had domestic abuse issues in the past. Apparently the mother is in the process of or has lost custody of two previous children due to multiple abuse/domestic abuse issues in the past by an unnamed 'caretaker', according to DCYF records. Now they have removed the newborn because the father of the child hasn't completed a required court ordered course on "Ending the Violence" per DCYF. The parents haven't made any statements on the past abuse issues and the removal of the other children, along with the father missing the required course...so there may be more to this than what we know. However, does a past history of abuse and affiliation with a 'militia', according to DCYF give the state legal authority to remove the newborn baby from the couple?? This upsets the family bond. Why not place the child with other family nearby?? Has DCYF made an effort to place the child with immediate family or is the baby in foster care?? If the mother was not the one responsible for domestic abuse, why not let her bond with the baby and put a restraining order on the father until he takes the required course??
Hopefully more information will become available soon.
