The two children of a Cuban mother living in Miami were placed in foster care by the State of Florida as a result of the mother’s alleged medical and psychological difficulties.
The mother and her children have been living here in the US since 2004.
The boy’s father consented to the boy remaining in the US.
But the little girl’s father wants her returned to him in Cuba.
Soon, a Miami juvenile dependency judge will have to decide the little girl’s fate.
Florida’s Department of Children and Families argues that the girl’s father is not a fit parent.
If the girl is returned to Cuba, she will have to leave behind her brother and the only home she really remembers, to return to a father and country with whom she has reportedly had little contact.
