Thank you all so much!”

I bet the kid is happy to be back with his mother. I really don’t trust CPS and Courts or judges….
Bet it’s great to be back with mom again. Call me old fashioned, but a mother would have to be a really horrible mother to justify taking her child away from her. I would love to hear more background on this. Was he in custody of father or foster home? Enjoy those precious moments

Oh no.. this makes my heart hurt so much. I bet he worries about his mama a lot. I hope they are both safe wherever they are and that Brian feels loved and is cared for. Stay strong little “mat warrior”…

I’ve been homeless with my son. No, I wasn’t on drugs or drinking my life away. It really is that tough out here and single moms don’t qualify for as much help as you think. When I thought I was doing the right thing by sending him to stay with my mom… he and I did worse apart. We’re stronger together. No matter what it is we’re going through.

I know I can’t speak for this mom in particular. Just offering perspective to whoever wants it.

Thanks for speaking your truth. I think many people have judgemental attitudes about homeless folk. And many people assume the courts are correct always. Not true!

No, just a lot of people don’t enable sub par living for children. I mean, you want better, do better. Expecting the system to pick up the slack is why the world is a gd dumpster fire rn……… AMD WHY EVERYTHING IS SO GD EXPENSIVE!!!! Being a parent means doing what is necessary to provide foe your kid, not finding excuses to support your want to do nothing and be supported for it. It’s delusional asf. Thank the left for destroying quality of life over the last 20 years.

Do the courts truly make the best determination when it comes to custody? I mean how much can we really trust our local court proceedings and judgements? Glad everybody is safe.

maybe a quick google search would help. years of theft and drug arrests. her latest arrest for this crime on 3-29-24 included delinquency of a minor. so was she giving drugs or alcohol to her kid?

Seeing as you’re on here delusional asf, you’re probably the abuser of your child…….. Trying to use a kid as leverage to aid your narcissistic behavior……. the courts side with you people you thank them and praise them, they side against you and they’re the problem….. you realize that’s the narcissists handbook right……

I really think women’s rights kinda go against the laws of nature entirely. I mean women’s rights rights are immoral and dishonest altogether. They just explain how it’s illegal for a man to respect a woman. People said this years ago then now,in 2024 the same scumbags pass another law that says it’s illegal for someone to tell a man who now identifies as a woman that he can’t use the woman’s restroom. You know how disrespectful that is to a woman or some young children,not to mention their father’s, making it illegal for us to tell some weirdo that he can’t go into a women’s restroom.
People that argued that women’s rights were just a legal way to disrespect women weren’t Heard untill today. All these laws always lead to the truth. Women’s rights lead to some creepy transvestite using a restroom with our children.abortion’s are just like using a hard drug, eventually you always get exactly what you asked for.One day it’s going to lead to 50-60% of women being infertile. Imagine the kind of greed you’d see in a world that one day learns that 60% percent of it’s consumer’s won’t even be alive in twenty years or whatever. God I hope for our grand kids sake they have a rock to hide under in those days, personally I’d rather be dead.

Women’s rights are really just a legal way for people to enter a woman’s privacy and exploit it for profits. Aren’t the liberals doing exactly that ,this identity crisis is just them developing a new currency and creating a global agricultural crisis with China’s help for short term profits and temporary safety.

Sign of the times. You can create and birth a human inside your body and then get criminalized for being their mom. Too bad they were found. Surly this will be cause for her to loose custody even more. The family law system in ca is a complete failure for kids, I call Humboldt family law a prison pipeline for kids, it’s that bad. Better luck fleeing next time mama.

I agree, it is a sick system. I don’t care what kind of issues a mother is having, there should always be some kind of mediation of visitation between a mother and her child. The system needs to be the sensible party and initiate the cessation of hostility and manipulation for the sake of the child’s health. Not doing so does so much more damage and makes situations like this much more probable. People with nothing to lose have nothing to lose. So let’s keep pushing them around huh? Maybe that’s what they want?

These people are the reason California went from the best state to live in, to its current state in just 20 years. It’s wild……. but proof leftism is a mental disorder.

Everyone who is rah-rahing for the mother are full of merde. None of you know the background on this story… this case could involve incredible neglect or abuse, not just homelessness. CPS doesn’t take kids just for fun, nor do the courts grant sole custody unless the record of the noncustodial parent demands it as the vast majority of child custody cases due to divorce end in joint custody arrangements. The fact that this woman presented forged documents to school officials in order to have the boy released to her indicates criminal behavior… a good mother wouldn’t do such a thing. A good mother would do everything required of her to stabilize her life and have her child returned to her legally. I’m just happy to see that the boy is safe and hopefully, won’t have much more trauma inflicted from this incident. God knows he’s got enough on his plate without Mom piling more shit on it.

Thank you, people really don’t know what they are talking about on this site. It’s very rare a mother looses full custody so they shouldn’t assume it was over nothing. And the people that want to know more about this child’s private life so they can judge the situation are creeps who need to get a life.

Too bad your point of view is undermined by people in the court system like the mandated mediator in Humboldt who’s main interest in the Moms was looking up their skirt. Does not quite give me blind confidence in the system.

Honest to God the kids probably in better hand with his mother than with government. In Washington they passed a law that allows the state to press charges against a parent for not allowing their ten year old children to get gender confirmation surgeries. That’s called kidnapping! They take a natural attractant to bloodshed,like the LGBTQ issue and drop it in middle schools right after and during riot’s and violence.
Anyway I think our kids are probably safer with the willits women. We’ve all seen what the government does with the children they kidnapped,they put them in a warzone in Nashville Tennessee in their attempt to spread
communism.
I just think it’s best if we keep our own children. We need to keep our guns too, God forbid Biden hands our military away to the Jews, they’d just intrust it to England. We’ve seen what the government does with our guns. Hunter and his dad threw the pistol in a trashcan across the street from a middle school and Biden used our tax dollars in a attempt to cover it up.
They kidnap our children,then take our guns to go shoot up a school in Nashville.
What happens when the communist takeover America, well if you don’t think gender confirmation surgeries on minors is a sign then I’d say you’re off your rockers. This identity crisis is simply a new currency in the making. The riots the burning of our police departments that we’re supposed to believe the blacks did, it’s all a compromise with communism in the works. Next we can expect a global agricultural crisis that threatens to starve out the entire globe within a matter of months of its debute.
Don’t give them your children those sick bastards will maim them and carve on them with our tax dollars,then they’ll put them on the front lines of their war against Americans.

This child was not lost to CPS because his mother was homeless and the system failed her. If anything, she milked the system for everything she could and used her children as income. His father has full custody because this mother is a mentally ill drug addict who was placing him in danger & severe neglect. The woman has another child from another man who she also lost custody of due to her use, being unfit, and abuse. She was also allowed visits with both children that she failed to attend, schedule, etc. I understand some cases aren’t fair or in the best interest of the child, but this is not one of them.
