In the Matter of KM, FH# 2018-0398
Affirmed - DCF did not act abuse its discretion in determining the appropriate level of care for the child; even though the kinship family created an increased health risk by smoking in the presence of an asthmatic child and the birth mother wanted the child to stay with the Appellant.

Appellant failed to meet their burden of proof.
