NY:Single mother loses custody of kids for shoplifting;now young son is missing from foster home!! #parents #kids #tcot
Such a sad story to hear during this holiday season. I don't blame her for not wanting to celebrate the holidays without her son. What is there to celebrate. Her son vanished a year ago after celebrating his 7th birthday. From the article it sounds like he vanished after he left to go skateboarding following his 7th birthday, but then it says two months after his birthday he vanished while in a Brooklyn foster home.
His single mother lost custody because she was caught for shoplifting. Do you think a single mother should, or any parent for that matter, should lose custody of their children for a single shoplifting incident?? I don't think that sounds right. I could see charging her with a fine for shoplifting or a few days in jail but not removing her kids from her permanently.
