Mom Shares Heartbreaking Open Letter After Judge Denies Her Custody of 4-Year-Old With Cancer

Taylor Bland and her son Noah

On Monday, a judge in Florida ruled against two parents seeking to regain custody of their 4-year-old, Noah McAdams, who has leukemia. Noah was taken from his parents, Taylor Bland and Joshua McAdams, in April after the couple intentionally skipped his chemotherapy session and crossed state lines in search of alternative treatments. Ever since, their battle to regain custody -- and win the right to choose their son's method of medical treatment -- has sparked a heated debate over the extent of parental rights.
