A court gave her father sole custody of her. Her mother then allegedly abducted her to Canada.
The now 7 year old girl is back in Pennsylvania – in foster care.
It seems that when her mother lost custody, she accused the girl’s father of sexually abusing her. Authorities here determined that the allegations were unfounded.
But when the mother was arrested, the child was placed in foster care in Canada. And once she was in foster care, the Canadian child protective services required assurances to release the child.
So the girl’s father consented to her going into foster care in Pennsylvania, so that she could be returned to the US.
The father awaits a hearing to obtain an order that will send his daughter home to him.
