PARENTAL RIGHTS TERMINATION – ABUSE AND NEGLECT – PRIOR REMOVAL AS ELEMENT – DRUG USE ENDANGERING CHILDREN – ATTEMPTED COVER-UP OF ABUSE. The mother in the Farrell v. Warren County DSS case had a separate appeal, and the charges and some issues did in fact differ. Mother’s termination was based on a history of drug abuse and a prior removal of the children from the parental home. While the mother certainly neglected too, the finding in the father’s case, that the father abused and neglected, was based on the twins being placed in danger of death, disfigurement or impairment of bodily or mental functions by their parents. The abuse and neglect of the other child, who was found to have been subjected to major blunt force trauma in father’s case, supported, along with the previous removal, the termination as to the twins. The Court of Appeals says it was proper. It could not be reasonably disputed that the mother’s drug use created the unsafe environment for all three kids that had led to the original removal, and it had never been corrected after that. The mother also neglected the single child’s medical needs and created an unsafe environment for all three in that she had grossly ignored the pediatrician’s expression of concern about the malnutrition and weight loss of the single child, and only brought him back to the doctor when the abuse incident, which caused the child to be hospitalized for a week, dictated it. Mother also hid the fact, though she certainly was aware of it, that the child abused by the father incurred intentional physical injury by him. She concealed information from that child’s doctors at the hospital, declaring falsely that she did not know how he had sustained his brain injuries, and that she had never hit or shaken him and could not believe that the father could have done it. This is all sufficient under §16.1-228(1), in the opinion of the trial court, the Court of Appeals, and prior decisions of the Court of Appeals. Concurring, Judge Petty differs only in that he does not think the majority needed to be as voluminous or as careful as they were.
