This is the latest on Viktor and Nubia Barahona. The flags were so prominant that a blind man could see them. Miami Dade DCF and the Judge Valerie Manno-Schurr should have see it coming from the next state. The psychologist is as culpable as the rest of them she knew this was going on and she knew these children were at risk. She never told “the secrets”. The question begs to be asked WHY? The answer is simple “MONEY” she was being paid by DCF to make sure this adoption went through so all parties would win including the courts.

In the months before a Miami-Dade judge approved their adoption by longtime foster parents, Nubia and Victor Docter, 7-year-old twin siblings, made a startling admission to a child psychologist. The twins said they sometimes had thoughts of killing themselves.
Nubia also confided that she wished she had more friends. And that she was “sure that terrible things are going to happen to her.”
Despite the twins’ professed fears, Judge Valerie Manno-Schurr — acting on the recommendations of foster care workers and a private psychologist — approved their adoption in May 2009, when the children were 8. Nubia and Victor Docter were now Victor and Nubia Barahona.
