CINA: Permanency planning: Effect of overturned foster-care order
CoA No. 4, September Term 2013, Reported. Opinion by McDonald, J. Filed May 30, 2013. 56 pages. Appeal from Montgomery County Circuit Court. Affirmed.
In changing the permanency plans for two sisters from reunification to adoption, the juvenile court properly included consideration of the sisters’ bond with their foster parents and the time spent in their care, even though nearly 8 of their 14 months in care stemmed from an earlier CINA determination that had been reversed on appeal.
