Mass. agency says it is actively working to return Justina Pelletier to Connecticut

By Patricia Wen / Globe Staff

Massachusetts child protection officials are actively working to return 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, the teenager involved in a year-long custody fight that’s drawn national attention, to her home state of Connecticut, a spokesman for the state Department of Children and Families said Friday in the agency’s first public comment on the case.

“Our primary goal has always been the health and well-being of Justina. We want the parents to be able to work with the providers and courts to ultimately move Justina back to her home state of Connecticut. That is the objective, and is consistent with our previous efforts to find an appropriate placement near her home,” said agency spokesman Alec Loftus.
If she were to live at her family’s home in West Hartford, Conn., child-protection officials in that state, who would likely oversee the case, would likely demand that the girl receive services at home or that she attend a day program.

Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, reached by phone Friday morning as he was driving to the family’s weekly visit with Justina, said, “Obviously this is a step in the right direction.”

    Unfortunately, the sluggish legal processes to overcome this mean a death sentence for Justina. Since she is not a resident of Mass. anyhow what do they have to say about it?

    Malloy needs to grow a pair and mobilize his National Guard and recover the prisoner. We have passed the point of legal posturing and need action. I’m afraid that the former will be the outcome.

    “….find appropriate placement near her home.”???? The ONLY appropriate placement for this child is in HER home, with her parents. Living in Maine, children in need of critical care due to an injury or illness are often airlifted to Boston Childrens Hospital and this situation terrifies me because if they’d do this to the Pelletiers, they’d do it to Maine parents. This is an absolute outrage and people should be very afraid of this hospital.
