Latonia Vs. Chisago County

An African American Woman’s Four-Year Fight for Her Grandson

Born into Turmoil

Tavon Rolbiecki was born exposed to multiple drugs and alcohol. While relatives stepped up to take him home, he ended up in Chisago County foster care.

Endorsed, Then Ignored

Latonia Rolbiecki became a licensed foster parent, favored by an independent expert as the right person to raise Tavon. That didn’t persuade Chisago County.

The Trial for Tavon

An eight-day hearing would determine if Chisago County unjustly kept Latonia Rolbiecki from her grandson – and if it was too late to make things right.
