Parents with Disabilities Fight to Keep Their Children

The only solution is to continue the fight

The only solution now is continued investigation and fighting for the rights of parents with disabilities.

Just a few days before Christmas, Fabbrini and Ziegler received a ruling from the circuit judge that they were considered fit to raise Hunter. The judge said, “I feel the threat articulated to Hunter is fairly amorphous… There is no allegation that they’re not able to meet his basic needs.” They took 10-month old Hunter home, but are still fighting to get custody of their four-year-old son, Christopher.

Parents with disabilities have the right to raise their children. But their rights go by the wayside. It is the responsibility of Child Protective Services in each state to protect the children and parents with disabilities and do their due diligence when investigating allegations.
