Should babies born dependent on drugs automatically be removed from their mother’s care? There are arguments on both sides, but here is a tragic story of one baby born dependent.
Charley was born dependent to methadone and opiates, but was allowed to go home with his mother. He later overdosed on methadone that was left on a table. He survived but may have brain damage. Should he have automatically been removed? His father and paternal grandmother wanted custody.
