February 11 I Heard Of Interesting Case
I heard of an interesting case out of New Jersey today. The New Jersey Supreme Court held that prenatal drug use by a mother was not a basis for finding child abuse or neglect. There needs to be evidence that there is imminent danger to the child or actual evidence of harm to the child.
I hope this frees up more children for direct private placements adoptions without involvement by a social service department bent on fostering.
