Miami — Elected officials and activists in the Haitian community are begging the Florida Department of Children and Families to scrap its plans to send a 9-month-old baby named Ector born in the United States to his grandparents in Haiti on Monday.
DCF’s decision comes from the mother’s desire, according to The Miami Herald, which first reposted the story. The Herald report says the mother’s parental rights were terminated because of severe mental illness and that the father, who resides in Haiti, has been absent.
