  • The first thing that comes to mind for me is what is that going to do to the mom. I know that she may be too far advanced and she may not be able to care for them but now that they are 600 miles away when is she going to see them? My kids are my life and if they were taken away from I would give up. They may be been the only thing keeping her going and now they are gone.

  • I don't know what's right for them, but it sounds like a really sad situation.

  • The judge may be looking at the best interest of the child. The mom is terminal, the father is willing to take them full time.

    Honestly, even looking at the story, I'm sure that we don't have all of the details here.

  • Don't know enough about the case to know. The judge may be correct if mom's cancer is so far advanced that she cannot care for anyone but herself.

  • I found some articles. And I know this won't be popular... but I DO think the decision is in the best interest of the children. If I was Alaina Giordano, I would WANT my children to be with their dad. I would NOT want them seeing me go through palliative care only. I wouldn't want them to see me weakening. I would NEVER want to risk them seeing me die.

    I lost both my parents to cancer. NEITHER of them wanted to see my son when they reached end stage; they wanted to shield him from that. He was 6 when my dad died, 7 when my mother passed. They both loved him dearly enough to spare him.
