SACRAMENTO, CA - The Sacramento baby boy at the center of child custody controversy that has garnered international attention will be moved to a Bay Area hospital for further evaluation.
"It's like a special day for us. It's like we're in a unit with our son again," said mother Anna Nikolayev. "We're just not going to let go anymore."
Five-month-old Sammy, who was removed from his parents' custody by Sacramento County Child Protective Services last week, will be transported to Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto, a Sacramento County judge ruled Monday. The baby has been in protective custody at Sutter Memorial Hospital.
