{¶2} On January 27, 2011, Family and Children's Services of Clark County (FCSCC) filed a complaint alleging that Mother's newborn child, K.R., was an abused and dependent child. A shelter care hearing was held, after which K.R. was placed in the temporary shelter care of FCSCC, and a Guardian ad Litem (GAL) was appointed.

On March 15, 2011, K.R. was found to be a dependant child, and she was placed in the temporary custody of FCSCC.

{¶5} The GAL filed an additional report prior to the May 9, 2011 hearing on Mother's motion.
