The Free Lance Star has a follow-up story on the three children who were abandoned in a library.\"Three small children abandoned in a library a week ago by their mother will stay in foster care for now, despite their father’s plea for custody.\"
\"Milton “Javier” Trabal, 23, of Woodbridge, appeared in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court during a closed hearing yesterday and said he wants the children back.\"
\"Judge Deborah Rawls ordered social workers to do a study of Trabal’s home environment within 30 days. She then will schedule another hearing to determine custody, said Gregory K. Pugh, the attorney for the children’s mother.\"
\"The mother, Roszina Mack, 20, said after the hearing that she wants Trabal to have custody and that she hopes to reconcile with him. She said they had been engaged and living together but broke up about three weeks ago, and she moved from Northern Virginia to live with her brother in Virginia Beach.\"
\"Trabal said he did not understand Mack’s actions but that he was not angry with her.\"
“I’m just focused on trying to get the kids,” said Trabal, who works as a medical billing clerk.\"
