An Oregon couple has been fighting a legal battle after they lost custody of their two kids because both were designated not intelligent enough to care for them in a safe and proper manner.
Amy Fabbrini, 31, was reportedly unaware about her state of pregnancy when she grew far into her third trimester with her now eldest son, Christopher.
Fabbrini did not receive formal examination or treatment within the ninth month term and went into advanced labor at the family's home, where she gave birth Sept. 9, 2013.
Fabbrini's partner, Eric Ziegler, 38, was receiving financial aid through the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income program on the behalf of a mental disability he was diagnosed with.
Earlier this year, Social Services acquired and fostered the pair's second newborn baby, Hunter, while he was in the hospital, following past allegations brought against them.
It's kind of crazy that this couple lost their kids for not being "intelligent enough" yet there are addicts who leave their kids in a Dunkin Donuts and OD in the bathroom (literally just happened in Boston). Other than that line I'm not really sure how I feel about this. Being a parent is so difficult and obviously their well being has to be the utmost priority. But if they are smart enough to bring on a legal battle to get their kids back, how can they not be smart enough to look after them in the first place? That last line about past allegations is mysterious so that could play a role. Let me know what you think in the comments!
