    Serenity Marie Stinson born December 22, 2018
    Did Jordan Belliveau’s mom, accused of his murder, just give birth in custody? And if so, what happens now?
    December 27, 2018
    [...]
    Officials won't confirm Stinson, 21, gave birth. Due to health and child protection privacy restrictions, they won't say if the baby was born alive and healthy. They won't share the baby's gender or name. And they can't talk about who has custody since the baby's mother is in jail on a murder charge.

    But Jordan Belliveau, the father of the toddler Stinson is accused of killing, filed a petition for paternity Monday, naming Stinson. The court docket shows Stinson giving birth Saturday to Serenity Marie Stinson.

    Special Review of the Case Involving Jordan Belliveau Jr.

    Conclusion
    Complex child welfare cases are difficult enough when high caseloads and continual staff turnover plague an agency. However, it is further impacted when those involved in the case (protective investigations, case management, clinical providers, legal, GAL and the judiciary) fail to work together to ensure the best decisions are being made on behalf of the child and their family. This case highlights the fractured system of care in Circuit 6, Pinellas County, with each of the various parts of the system operating independently of one another, without regard or respect as to the role their part plays in the overall child welfare system. Until the pieces of the local child welfare system are made whole, decision-making will continue to be fragmented and based on isolated views of a multi-faceted situation.

    DCF Special Review – Jordan Belliveau | Florida Department of Children and Families

    DCF Special Review – Jordan Belliveau

    For Immediate Release: January 16, 2019

    DCF Special Review – Jordan Belliveau

    The comprehensive analysis and review of the child welfare system involvement related to Jordan Belliveau is available here. Confidential information is redacted per section 39.202, Florida Statutes, and HIPAA.

    Statement from Department of Children and Families Secretary Chad Poppell:
    Reviewing the events that led up to Jordan’s death is incredibly saddening. Despite multiple opportunities, no one changed his circumstances. DCF policies were not followed, communication throughout the process was poor, and several clear warning signs were missed. There were even specific concerns raised that were not acted upon. This report should be a call to action for the entire child welfare system, and I intend to treat it as one.

    Background
    In Pinellas County, all child protective investigation functions are handled by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, children’s legal services are handled by the Office of the State Attorney, and case management is contracted by the community-based care lead agency, Eckerd Connects. The department has no jurisdiction to conduct child protective investigations in Pinellas County and had no direct involvement with this child.

    The department will take additional actions related to the findings of the report, including:

    • conducting a comprehensive assessment of the Pinellas County child welfare system to determine if the missed opportunities in this case are prevalent throughout the local system of care;
    • requiring Eckerd to submit a corrective plan to immediately identify and address case management deficiencies and remedy coordination and collaboration issues among all participants of the child welfare system in Pinellas County. The plan must include a review of procedures for cases where a new investigation is opened during an open case management services case, caseload for case managers, court attendance, provider coordination, and successful case closure. Failure to adequately and timely complete corrective action could result in contract termination; and
    • strengthening DCF’s mandated requirements regarding the activities child protective investigators are required to initiate when new abuse reports are received for children who are in care of the child welfare system.

    Ugh, that was tough reading. DCF did a miserable job of "protecting" Jordan. And keep in mind the other two people responsible for his short, hellish life; mom and dad. Mom's in jail for Jordan's murder but according to the report dad also played a big part in creating the problems that ultimately led to Jordan being removed from their care. Gangs, guns, drugs - in Grandma's house yet! I hope he enjoyed the *** money and donations from the local community. <--- sarcasm

    And Jordan's parents just couldn't stop themselves from behaving violently. From the report:
    +++
    Because it was Father’s Day, Ms. Stinson planned to allow Mr. Belliveau to also visit with his son at a local Burger King, unbeknownst to the case manager or foster parents. In doing so, Ms. Stinson was in violation of the visitation order requiring Mr. Belliveau’s visits with Jordan to be supervised. While at the restaurant, family members of a rival gang arrived and a fight ensued. Mr. Belliveau was involved in a physical altercation with a female who confronted Mr. Belliveau about an incident between him and her son. As Mr. Belliveau and the other female were fighting, Ms. Stinson jumped in and attempted to strike the female while holding Jordan in her arms. In retaliation, the other female attempted to hit Ms. Stinson and, instead, struck Jordan in the mouth. Both law enforcement and EMS responded to the scene and observed Jordan to have swelling and a small laceration on the inside of his lip. Ms. Stinson refused medical treatment and there was no further action taken, (e.g., no arrests, and no report called to the hotline by first responders at the time of the incident).
    +++
    And here's the kicker: From December 28, 2018:
    Mother Charged in Death of Toddler Files Custody Request for Newborn

    IMO neither parent has any insight into themselves and their behavior and will never change, therefore CS should live out at least her child-bearing years in prison. And dad needs a vasectomy. MOO.

    Too little, too late IMO. Notice that the case manager is "no longer" with the agency and not "was fired." It would be nice to get a straight story with less CYA:
    Jordan Belliveau's former case manager no longer works at child welfare agency

    Editorial: Another child dead, another state failure
    A 2-year-old’s death in Pinellas County reflects failures the state’s child welfare system has repeated for decades. Can it be fixed?
    January 18, 2019
    Jordan Belliveau was his name, a human being in his own right. But the 2-year-old's death under state supervision is another new face on the same old story.

    DCF report says the system failed to keep Largo boy from harm
    A review team included six key findings, which are summarized in the report. The first was a “noted inability” by everyone involved to recognize and address ongoing domestic violence between the child’s parents, probable substance abuse and mental health issues.

    Instead, the decision to return Jordan to his mother’s care was “driven primarily” by what had been “perceived” as his parents following case plan tasks, not changed behavior. The focus had been on Stinson providing a home away from his paternal grandmother’s residence, which was associated with drug and gang activity. Decision-makers failed to consider overall family conditions, the report said.

    Second, after the child was returned to his mother, “policies and procedures to ensure child safety and well-being were not followed,” the report said. Case management staff didn’t do anything when Stinson failed to participate in the reunification program before and after Jordan was returned to her care.

    Stinson failed to attend three of five visits with a clinician to assist with reunification prior to Jordan being returned to her. She missed seven of 11 visits after Jordan was returned. She missed the appointment with the clinician the day the child was returned. She was unsuccessfully discharged from the reunification program on July 24, 2018, due to her lack of participation.

    The third finding was about a child abuse report received in August 2018 that pointed to “increased volatility between the parents and present danger” that was not “appropriately assessed and identified.” According to the report, the child protective investigator’s “assessment was based solely on the fact that the incident wasn’t reported to the Florida Abuse Hotline when it initially occurred.”

    “The CPI failed to identify the active danger threats occurring in the household that were significant, immediate and clearly observable,” the report said. “Given the circumstances, a modification of Jordan’s placement should have been considered.”

    Hopefully, the state learned something from Jordan and won't leave his baby sister to a similar or worse fate.

    Ugh... Baby Girl's birth kicks me hard, we share a birthday.

    Jordan Belliveau's foster parents take in newborn sister, Serenity
    February 1, 2019
    The foster family that was forced to give up Jordan Belliveau months before he was found dead have now taken in Jordan's younger sister.

    The foster parents, Sam and Juliet Warren, are working toward adoption, the couple announced Friday in a statement.

    Jordan Belliveau’s mother, Charisse Stinson, 21, has been charged with murder in his death. She gave birth while in custody to daughter Serenity Marie Stinson on Dec. 22, court records show, and Serenity was immediately thrust into the complicated web of child protection.

    "Last fall we were broken by the death of a child we loved dearly," the Warrens’ statement said. "As the fall continued, the question of what would happen to Jordan's little sister began to weigh on us. We knew that Charisse would not be able to care for her. After much prayer, we approached Charisse about allowing us to adopt the baby, and she agreed."

    Battle for custody of Serenity:
    UPDATED news article:
    Jordan Belliveau's foster parents take in newborn sister, Serenity
    February 1, 2019
    [...]
    Jordan's father, also named Jordan Belliveau, had filed a petition for paternity of Serenity in court, and is seeking custody of the baby.

    Belliveau and his family couldn't be reached Friday, though his lawyer said Serenity belongs with her father.

    "The child has a good father," said Jawdet Rubaii, Belliveau's lawyer in the paternity case. "My client is a reasonable person who just wants to have his child and wants to take care of his child properly."

    The Warrens characterization of how they obtained Serenity contradicts a court document that Stinson signed just days after birth. In that document, she confirms Belliveau is Serenity's father and asks that Belliveau be granted custody.

    The Warrens declined to answer any questions beyond their statement. Stinson has declined interview requests in the Pinellas County jail. Stinson's mother, Mary Washington, declined to comment.

    I'm confused; msm says the foster parents are working on adopting the baby, so it sounds like it may not be a done deal just yet.

    Information at your link doesn't indicate a petition for custody unless it's in docs #7 and 8 (1/16/2019).

    If the father is trying to get custody I'd be shocked if he wins considering his extensive criminal history, including DV, battery, stalking and drugs. Not to mention damning evidence of his role in Jordan's short life.

    I'm reposting the FL. DCF Review of his case - who in their right mind would allow a baby to go to anyone in that family? MOO.

    Here's an explanation in a local news article published today:
    Foster Family of Jordan Belliveau In Custody of Newborn Sister
    PUBLISHED 10:50 AM EST Feb. 02, 2019
    [...]
    Loryn Smith is the owner of Finally Home Christian Adoption Services. She’s not involved in the case but gave insight of what could happen next.

    “If a mom signs consent and it was an unmarried, biological father, mom’s constitutional rights trumps the capacity. She has the right to make that choice,” Smith said.

    However, in a letter to the court five days after giving birth, Stinson asked for custody to be given to the child’s father Jordan senior and his mother Jessica. Both were mentioned in documents from the Department of Children and Families highlighting failures in caring for two-year-old Jordan.

    “It’s a constitutional right for parents to make a decision about their children and that constitutional right is nationwide protected by the supreme court,” Smith said. “The caveat is as long as it’s a safe placement. And then of course in Florida we add that we have to be able to demonstrate best interest of the child.”

    So which family does Stinson want her daughter with? What documents did she sign and when did she sign those documents? Smith said that could play a role in this case.

    “It is binding and irrevocable once you sign if the baby is under six months old. Upon signature it is binding and irrevocable,” Smith said. “You can’t sign until 48 hours after birth or upon your discharge from the hospital.”

    In a court filing the biological father’s attorney writes, “there was premature action by adoptive parents filed before the child was born.”

    Smith said this will likely boil down to hearings and testimony and a judge will decide what’s in the best interest of the child. The biological family said they plan to fight for custody.

    wait so they are saying if a mother decides to adopt a kid out and isn't married to the father that he doesn't have any rights? that isn't correct in my state.

    Biological father has rights. I think his attorney will make this custody issue difficult for the state. If father asserts custodial rights, other family can't adopt unless he agrees or if his parental rights are terminated. IMO

    Edited to include this DEC 2018 news article:
    Mother Charged in Death of Toddler Files Custody Request for Newborn

    PUBLISHED December 28, 2018 @6:03 PM
    PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — Charisse Stinson, the mother charged in the murder of her two-year-old son Jordan Belliveau, wants her newborn baby to be handed over to the child’s father.
    [...]
    In court documents filed Thursday afternoon, Stinson asked for her newborn baby girl, Serenity Stinson, be handed over to the child's biological father, Jordan Belliveau Sr., and his mother, Jessica.
    [...]
    In the letter, she said she authorizes any and all medical and custodial decisions, care, and custody be given to Jordan Sr. and his mother. She asks for the father and paternal grandmother to be given immediate, full custody of Serenity.

    Judge in Charisse Stinson Murder Case Requests Her Presence For Hearing
    PUBLISHED 10:45 AM EST Feb. 04, 2019
    CLEARWATER, Fla. — The woman accused of killing her 2-year-old son appeared in a Pinellas County courtroom Monday ahead of her murder trial.

    Initially, Charisse Stinson was not going to be in court. However, the judge in the case instructed her attorney that he wanted her in court.

    The hearing was delayed while officials went to get Stinson and bring her to the courtroom.

    When she did appear, the judge told her he wanted to see her face to face before they move forward.

    A pre-trial date was scheduled for March 18.
