Description

This story talks about the biological rights of a parent versus the best interests of a child. Specifically, a 7-year-old girl and her 6-year-old brother living with a couple they've called parents for nearly four years. The couple fought the biological mother in court, refusing to give the children back because of medical exams, law enforcement and psychologist reports, and the girl's disclosure of sexual abuse. The judge said there was not enough evidence and returned the children to the biological mother. The story showed that the mother had a history of drug abuse and drunk driving.
