A Florida couple is devastated. Child Protective Services just took their breastfeeding newborn from her mother’s arms at the hospital. She was is not even two days old, but parents Tracey and Freddie Verzosa of Kissimmee, Florida will now only be able to visit their baby for feedings, under supervision. The accusations against them, according to the parents’ story, boil down to the facts that Tracey is a slow learner, they are poor, and the baby was born too quickly for them to make it to the hospital.
On his personal Facebook page, Freddie posted this:
Today is announced to be a very sad day for my family. Our newest family [member] ‘Taylor Lynn Verzosa’ has just been removed from our care. Just like the rest of the children’s. They are saying that its because it’s an open case. I am asking for you to support my wife as she is devastated in this event.
The Verzosas have 6 other children, and they have been fighting since last summer to get them back from DCF (Florida’s Department of Children and Families.) They say that their other children were taken unjustly, and the children, who are divided between 3 different foster homes, cry and plead to come home whenever they see them.
