And DFCS came back in November 2008 for her fifth child, Debbi, just 14 days old.

"I begged them not to take my baby," said Domitina Mendez, 24, "but the interpreter told me to calm down or it was going to be worse."

Since then, the five children have been cared for by a foster family who wants to adopt them, even as the Mendezes try to regain custody.

A hearing to have their case reopened is set for Thursday in Whitfield County Juvenile Court after a June 2011 ruling that terminated their parental rights.

In her ruling, Judge Connie Blaylock said she didn’t believe the parents could care adequately for the five children with their complicated medical needs and the dozens of medical appointments they require every month.

But advocates working with the family believe their inability to speak English and their illegal status were the main factors that led to the rights termination.
