After Bert became aware of the abuse, he sought Legal Aid Society’s help and we began working diligently to bring his son home. Bert told us the horrors of David’s abuse. His maternal grandparents were chaining him up like a dog, starving him, and not allowing him to go to the bathroom. When David was admitted to the hospital, the abuse was so bad that the doctor admitted him as a “John Doe” so that the grandparents would not be able to locate David. David was in the hospital for six days; his system was so backed up from not being allowed to use the bathroom, feces were found in his nasal cavities and throat.
The custody battle raged for months until finally a settlement was reached in favor of our client, Bert. David now lives with his father and his younger siblings. David plays T-Ball and has caught up to the average child his age. Legal Aid Society, Inc. is proud to be a part of this miracle of reunification and wishes nothing but the best for Bert and his family in the years to come.
