A mother who suffered severe brain damage during the birth of her triplets can have in-person visits and Skype calls with her kids, a Southern California judge ruled this week.
Abbie Dorn, who is in a vegetative state after a series of medical errors during childbirth, lives with her parents in South Carolina after being divorced from her husband following her brain injury. Her parents petitioned on her behalf for visits with her kids, who live with her former husband in Los Angeles.
Attorneys for both sides praised the ruling, with the grandparents’ attorney calling it a victory for all disabled parents. The father was also pleased, having prevailed in his request to both limit and supervise visitation.
