That's a decision for a court to make guest.
I recently spent some time with a younger friend who had been brought up in foster care after her father abandoned the family and her mother couldn't cope.
I know what her answer would be - but each case is different.
Remember that Shannon is currently in the care of the local authority with her mother's permission who hasn't been charged with any offence as far as I'm aware.
These decisions are not easy or taken lightly as past posts on 'evil social workers who remove children from families' will demonstrate - 'damned if you do, damned if you don't!'
