Nightmare for Pelletier Family Continues -- DCF Refuses to Let Justina be with her Mother on Mother's Day
Demonstration for Justina Pelletier: Sunday at 1 PM
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., May 10, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Department of Children and Families (DCF) denied the meeting for Linda Pelletier to be with Justina after a request was submitted by the Pelletier's attorneys.
Tragically this continues a trend by DCF which has not allowed Justina to be with her family on special holidays and occasions in the past which also included Mother's Day last year.
There will be a Mother's Day demonstration at the Wayside Youth and Family Support Network facility, 1 Frederick Abbott Way, in Framingham, Mass. where Justina is staying with family members on Sunday, May 11, beginning at 1:00 P.M.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Pelletier family Spokesperson, states:
"It is hard to imagine that after DCF issued a reunification plan and stated their desire to return Justina home to her family as quickly as possible, they would then turn around and deny Linda Pelletier the right to be with her daughter on Mother's Day.
"Every child at Wayside will have the opportunity to see their mother on Mother's Day but one; Justina Pelletier. The question must be asked, If DCF was truly concerned about the welfare of Justina and the family, why would they deny this simple face to face meeting on Mother's Day? One could only imagine what Justina will be experiencing seeing all the other residents spending time with their mothers while she sits alone in her room.
"It is now becoming so much clearer that the only solution to this tragedy is getting Justina back into the loving arms of her family as soon as possible."
