Another Baby Gone 

Pin It

In response to “Gone Baby Gone” [April 30, City Weekly], I am a grandmother in Utah who is losing custody of my precious grandchild.

The current practices in some of the Utah Division of Child and Family Services offices is appalling. The state, which had never been to my home prior to taking my granddaughter, put her in an adoptive home without giving me a chance to turn in paperwork for custody, even though I asked for four to six weeks in which to gain legal custody.

One reason given was that $1,800 per month is not enough to support four people. Nobody bothered to check if the child had any eligible relatives.

Where are this baby’s basic civil rights? Who is getting what for this human being?

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
