“Baby Carlos was placed with this family last Thursday, and he’s doing great,” Olguin said.
CPS officials told the court they approved a friend of the mother’s family home study, which is a step towards adopting the baby boy.
Meanwhile, CPS has positively identified the father — a 22-year-old man. There’s no word yet if he’ll face statutory rape charges.
Charges were filed against the 16-year-old mother in connection with leaving Baby Carlos in the dumpster.
“Could have been a different ending, but in Carlos’ case, it looks like he has found his forever home,” Olguin said.
