    The is a dad in Texas who spent months getting his child back from the state having been stationed on a base during the birth of his daughter. The state does take children away quite easily.

    Anyone can check publicly-available records, and see that the mother has a criminal history.
    The great-grandmother has stated that the mother has been "on the streets" for a long time.

    The man she's with? That's not the man that she was arrested in Pocatello, for assaulting him. This is another guy, with a very long history of drugs, violence, and prison sentences.

    I hope they take better care of the child, than their records intimate.

    The state does not easily take children from parents on a long term basis so there is a an issue with the biological mother that is on-going. Looks like it is kidnapping to me. Biological Mom defilitely has issues and this kind of behavior will certainly not help her and may ultimately cause her to lose any chance of getting the child back in the future.

    Bet that either the Bio mom has a substance abuse issue or a psychloical/emotional issue or both. Bad impulsive behavior. The best thing she can do is to return the child and take responsibility. God bless her and her child!

    It states clearly in the article that Kassidy was taken from the home of her LEGAL guardians.

    If she doesn't have custody, does not matter who she is is or was. If you go over your court appointed time or mediated time, it is illegal. It does not appear to be an appropriate hand off if the girl was lured out of the home. If the girl were lured out of the home she could have been taken by someone else.

    I asked about the guardians because of the case of Utah keeping children other states have ruled that the bio parents should have custody of their child and the guardians should never have had possession of the child in the first place. Was this a child in grandparent custody. Why would the bio mom be discussing contact with the guardians and not the court? Was the bio mom even aware the guardians had guardianship, or was gram just raising the grandchild? Does dad have legal guardianship of the child. Why was this article lacking all these details?

    Not enough information to pass judgment on the Mother. It is her child. It doesn't appear that the child was placed in custody of the guardians, or else, it would be kidnapping and an Amber alert would be issued. Some people like to take other people children because they draw conclusions that the child would not be cared for. I hope it works out for the child, the parent and the guardians.

    Its sad when people are so selfish that they ignor what is best for the child. Its what they want. Not what the childs needs.
