In November, 2010 we posted a story of an undocumented Guatemalan woman, Encarnacion Romero, whose young son was the center of controversy in the Missouri Supreme Court. She was arrested in 2007 at a poultry plant in southern Missouri, along with 135 others, and charged with identity theft.
During Romero's prison stay, her young son lived with relatives for a while and later was apparently adopted by a couple in Carthage, Missouri. Romero states she was unaware of the adoption and did not give him up.
After a long fight through the courts, a Missouri judge decided to let the adopted parents retain custody of the now five-year-old little boy. Read the story from the Kansas City Star here.
