A New York Family Court found that it was in the best interest of the child to have the mother’s parental rights terminated, as reported by the New York Law Journal in an August 15th 2011 article.
The mother and the maternal grandmother of the child both petitioned the New York Family Court in an attempt to gain full custody rights of the newborn. However, after reviewing all of the factors surrounding the case, the court ruled it was in the best interest for the newborn child to remain with its current foster parents.
Since the birth of the child the mother, who has given birth to seven other children, had not completed any requirements the court had imposed on her, including drug rehabilitation. In contrast, the foster parents had demonstrated to the courts that they had not only provided adequate child-care but had fully bonded with the child.
Due to this the court ruled it was in the best interest of all of the parties for the child to remain with the foster parents with the option to completely adopt and to terminate all parental rights of the mother.
