There was a case here in Virginia regarding this very issue. The state tried to intervene and the circuit court prevented them from doing so. The boy's name is Abraham Cherrix. He is alive and doing fine today.
The Abraham Cherrix Story
They now have "Abraham's Law" on the books here in Va.
I appreciate the article, and I did ask for a link. But there is legal precedent already, and I should have asked for the law you cite, not just a link. Sorry, I apologize.
