CPS Didn’t Allow FLDS Kid with 104 Degree Fever to Be with Mom

State of Texas 42, King George 28

42. CPS didn’t allow an FLDS mother to be with her child, even though the child was hospitalized with a 104 degree fever and the child’s doctor had requested the mother’s presence.

One of the riveting reports written by a mental health worker describes this incident (see all reports by mental health workers):

On … Thursday morning, April 24, 2008, I witnessed a young mother named Rosinith be required by CPS to board the bus back to the ranch, though her young child was in the hospital with 104 degree fever and even though the child’s physician had personally requested the mother’s presence at the hospital. This event haunts me still, and I cannot imagine such a heartless act.
