Visibly worried, Sandra (L) and
her mother, Eloisa, 47 (R) wait during a recess in
Sandra's 'child permanency' hearing. For more than a year, lawyers and case
workers from the Texas Child Protection Service have fought to permanently
end Sandra's parenting rights. They recently seized her fourth child, born
just two months ago. Last December, a judge awarded Sandra a Spanish speaking
lawyer. The case could go to trial in May.
