    I hope that *itch is never allowed near that precious child again ... assuming he survives this abuse.

    This is so sad. What a little cutie. I will never understand how anyone can abuse a little baby, or any child for that matter.

    So sweet and innocent.

    Hopefully, some heads are going to roll on this one. Hopefully the welfare worker who returned him to his mom.

    Horrible, just horrible,

    I'm so sick of this $xxt! Mom abuses baby, baby taken away, mom given baby back, mom abuses baby again, only this time she almost kills him. Lock this Xitch up, if Judge would have given her 5 years in prison the first time, instead of 5 years probation this never would have happened! I hope the social worker who gave Aiden back to mom, loses her job. How many more precious children are going to suffer or be murdered because of poor judgment on authorities part? Poor sweet baby.

    I hope they will look into why this child was returned to his mother so quickly after what appears to have been a serious assault on the child in late July. Georgia DFACS did a really poor job on this case and a baby nearly died. Somebody in that agency needs to be made to answer for that.

    It's great news that he's doing better. But who is this person who is asking for "cash only" (click here) donations??? Sounds like someone trying to make a quick buck off of a child's misery, to me.

    I also applaud Aiden's grandmother for trying to get her grandson out of that abusive situation. As for DFS? Or CPS (child protective services)? What a joke. I hope they fire the idiot who returned that precious child to the arms of his abusive mother. In fact, I personally, wish these idiots could be criminally charged for dereliction of duty. But hey, that's jmo.

    From Taximom's link:
    Then around Christmas Eve 2007 Kellam says a social worker gave Aiden back to Richards.
    The social worker should be fired.
    The baby is precious. How sad to see his little face bruised around his eye. May he heal and be taken away from the pos who injured him.

    As a former protective social worker, I feel an investigation needs to be done into exactly how a seriously abused infant when home in less than six months. Just firing the worker is the easy answer, but it may not prevent this from happening again.

    I have been ordered to return children when I didn't feel they needed to be returned to the bio-parent or to place them with questionable other relatives several times.... it isn't always the worker's fault. Sometimes that decision comes from a combination of a judge, a lay-person committee (called a foster care review board in my state) and from a group of administrators in the state office. Sometimes the better judgment of workers is overruled. I ended up having to remove all but one of the children I was forced to return a second time. One child was removed by the coroner as a result. It does happen

    Of those that went to questionable placement, several were physically or sexually abused, three committed suicide, and many ran away. I had to remove others. The few that stayed are now adults and I see their names in the 'who's in jail' list in our local paper frequently.

    Thank you for the reminder that the decision to return the child to an abusive envrion is not necessarily the SW's choice. I wish something could really be done about CPS, bc imho, it is very broken.

    What a handsome little boy! My son just turned 9 months old. They are so funny at this age.

    May that woman rot in hell for what she has done to her son. But I have to congratulate the grandma for trying to protect her grandson. Prayers for this beautiful little boy.

    Jeez, you would have to wonder where she got her evil streak from since her own MOTHER is willing to take her to task. I am sure lots of people in Grandma's position would do the same, only would probably try to keep it private and not talk to the media.

    YAY grandma!!!
