NASHVILLE, Tenn. ó At 4 years old, Alessandra Villalobos spends nearly all of her time confined to a bed. She is severely brain-damaged, can neither walk nor talk and is at the center of a medical malpractice lawsuit and a custody fight waged in two Nashville courts.
The child-custody case is complex because of the girl's extraordinary health conditions. Alessandra requires round-the-clock nursing care ó the result, lawyers say, of a medical mishap when she was 3 that forever altered her life. If the lawsuit is successful, it could provide millions of dollars to cover the cost of her care.
But the battle over the child is complicated even more because her mother, Ingrid Diaz, is in the country illegally and facing deportation while her daughter was born in the U.S. and is an American citizen.

My heart goes out to this innocent child who apparently will be victimized twice. First by her unintended disability, second by her so called "mother".


This is one of many classic examples and reasons to end the abuse of the 14th Amendment.

Diaz initially lost custody of her daughter last year when she and the child's father were arrested on felony drug charges. The girl's father, Manuel Villalobos, pleaded guilty to selling drugs and has been deported to Mexico. Diaz denies any involvement with drugs and once her charge was dismissed, Nashville's Juvenile Court returned Alessandra to her custody.
Clearly, this innocent child deserves a better life without her ďmodelĒ parents. They may even be responsible for her condition, considering their involvement with illicit drugs.

Maybe they are using the math equation, negative x's negative = positive? Just saying.

Itís embarrassing that you donít realize if two dogs mate, their offspring are kittens. Get with the program, JDubs.

This is a child with serious medical problems who is going to require care for the rest of her life. After reading the article, it does not sound to me like her mother is capable of providing that care. I recognize that giving custody to someone else is a serious step, but I do not see how anyone can say that leaving the child in her mother's care would be in the child's best interest. If the little girl is not cared for correctly she could develop even more health problems. Hopefully, the powers that be will give custody to the nurse who has been caring for the child, but if the ACLU and NCLR get involved then all bets are off.
