New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services v. E.P.

7-14-08 (A-112/113-06)

The Division of Youth and Family Services did not prove by clear and convincing evidence that termination of the mother’s parental rights would not do more harm than good. In the unique circumstances of this case, a parent-child relationship that
continued to provide emotional sustenance to the child should not have been severed based on the unlikely promise of a
permanent adoptive home.
