Like a lost soul on an endless voyage, Deborah Connor has never given up fighting to regain custody of her 11-year-old son, Ryan Cook.

When Deborah Connor lost custody of her 3-month-old, breast-feeding, infant son, on April 20, 1990, to Mark Cook, a batterer, in Billings, Montana, she couldn't believe that her right to due process was stolen in a court of law.

No law can override the US Constitution. In New Hampshire, it's laws are also secondary to the NH Constitution. Each document has a Bill of Rights designed to place clear limits on the power of the government.

The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom. However, this doesn't prevent the state's legislature from passing laws that are unconstitutional.

A 5-month-old boy whose family was being supervised by District foster care workers died Saturday and police are investigating, the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency said in a prepared statement issued last night.

The agency provided no details of the death. But the D.C. medical examiner said his office is investigating reports that the infant -- identified by police as Christian Brock-Allen -- was severely allergic to dairy products and died after he was mistakenly given milk-based formula.

Virtually everyone who studies or is involved in child welfare agrees: Visits between children and their parents matter.

Perhaps most important of all, visits matter because continued contact with parents increases the probability that children will go home to their families.

Eleven children were molested. One was forced to have sex with a dog. One lay injured on a bathroom floor, his face smeared with his own feces. That toddler, Miguel Arias-Baca, later died.

They are the state's dirty little secrets. Foster children, wards of the state taken from abusive or neglectful relatives, suffered again in foster homes that were supposed to keep them from harm. Colorado child-welfare officials have watched these horror stories and many others unfold in foster homes chosen and supervised by private foster-care businesses.

Parents thrust into the child welfare system, most of them poor and unfamiliar with the legal terrain, might then get a few minutes to tell their story before they find themselves in front of a judge.

To juvenile law experts, this fleeting encounter between parents and their court-appointed lawyers illustrates a serious problem provoking debate in Santa Clara County and across California. Critics say overworked, underpaid and often inexperienced lawyers are shortchanging parents in a near-invisible but crucial corner of the justice system.

These empty shoes represent the 844 children who died over 6 years after their families were reported for mistreating a child. Many died suspiciously or from neglect. Most of their lives and deaths went unnoticed. Until now.

In late 1997, the Atlanta Journal- Constitution went to court to force the state to open its files of children who had died after coming to the attention of DFACS. Last year, the newspaper began reviewing the files.

Dependency Court: Those trying to regain custody of children often are represented by inexperienced attorneys.

Every weekend, Jessica Regelman takes her twins for an outing, which would be unremarkable, except that technically, they aren't hers anymore. They belong to Vicky and Dr. Steven Neeley of Brighton Township. The Neeleys adopted Alex and Amber on Sept. 3,

Regelman still gets to see them because she chose the Neeleys to adopt her children, much against the wishes of Beaver County Children and Youth Services. But Beaver County CYS didn't just fight her attempts to choose adoptive parents for her son and daughter. It also acted quickly to end her parental rights, even though she had never been accused of abusing or neglecting her children.
