DFW Editors Blind To Needs Of Child

By now, the story of Baby Gabriel Brandt is well known around Oregon.  Gabriel was put into foster care by the state when he was 4 months old.  His mother pled guilty to felony drug charges but then fled before sentencing, and is nowhere to be found.  His father, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was released from Oregon prison last month after serving time on drug charges. He had also been twice convicted of attempted first-degree rape involving a child.  So the parental rights of both parents had been officially severed by the state, and Gabe had been given to Steve and Angela Brandt as a foster child.  The Brandts were told that they had a good chance to adopt Gabe.
