       A Success Story
       The following is just one example of a case
       handled by LSEM. Without the help of our
       staff in this case, the family may never have
       been reunited.

       The Case of Celia

       Celia is a disabled mother who had no contact
       with her sons (ages 10 and 13) for the first five
       weeks they were in state custody. The case was
       transferred between two jurisdictions, and the state
       lost its contact information for Celia. The boys were
       told that no one knew the whereabouts of their mother.

       Celia wanted to temporarily place her children while she tried
       to get out of an abusive relationship. However, before she had the
       opportunity to do that, her boyfriend took the children to her workplace
       and left them there with all their possessions. Celia was away from the work-
       site that afternoon, so someone called the police to come and get the children.
       They were placed in foster care and Celia was accused of abandoning her sons.

       The boys were able to finally see their mother in the hallway outside the courtroom before the first hearing in the case. That day, we received a court order
       permitting Celia to visit with the boys at least four times per month until they could be returned to her. Those visits did not happen. Aside from the day
       of the hearing, Celia was able to see them only once in three months.

       The court determined that Celia’s housing issue was the main obstacle to her reunification with her sons. Over several months, we worked to resolve her
       housing issues as well as a foster care issue in which the foster care mother only wanted to take one of the boys. We objected to separating them because
       they were extraordinarily reliant on one another.

       Following many obstacles, we were finally able to resolve Celia’s issues, and she moved into her apartment after the boys were in foster care for five months.
       Without the assistance of LSEM in this case, Celia may never have been able to get her boys back in her custody.

                                                                                                                                                   2004 LSEM Annual Report   4
