HOUSTON (AP) — Child welfare officials in Texas say a Houston boy found in March after being kidnapped as an infant eight years ago is still not ready to meet his parents.
At a court hearing Wednesday in Houston, Child Protective Services officials updated state District Judge Mike Schneider on the case of 8-year-old Miguel Morin. The boy will remain in the state’s care at least until a Sept. 12 hearing.
CPS officials say a therapist working with Miguel doesn’t believe he’s ready to have visits with his parents.
Officials say Miguel’s parents, Auboni Champion-Morin and Fernando Morin, who live in Houston, are being cooperative and have received photographs of the boy. The father’s attorney says the parents “are holding up well.”
The boy’s baby sitter and her mother face kidnapping charges.
