DCF Abuse Hotline
The adoptive sister of Nubia Barahona, a young girl who died in the custody of her adoptive parents, has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Children and Families.
Inspired by the merciless killing of a 10-year-old girl by her adoptive parents in 2010, the state Department of Children and Families (DCF) debuted a revamped Florida Abuse Hotline.
Miami-Dade Police left the Southwest Miami-Dade home of Jorge and Carmen Barahona Tuesday night. They had been there since Monday night, and were spotted removing a bathtub.
Child welfare attorney Christy Lopez-Acevedo testified Tuesday before a blue-ribbon investigative panel, telling a tale of warnings ignored that should have alerted state officials of the abuse of at least two children at the home of Jorrge and Carmen Barahona.
