Couple Loses Daughter to Foster Care Over Medical Dispute

The Pelletiers

Lou and Linda Pelletier had hoped to regain custody of their daughter this week in court. Not only did that not happen, but a judge ordered Justina to be placed in foster care. The girl was originally being treated for mitochondrial disease by a doctor at Tufts Medical Center. Later she was admitted to Boston Children’s Hospital, where a seven-month intern changed the diagnosis to a mental disorder. When the Pelletier’s tried to move Justina back to Tufts, the state intervened and they lost custody. The court has forbidden the parents to talk about the case.
