Grandparents Ordered to Evict 6 Year-old Girl
They say she’s spoiling THEM. According to the Huffington Post, a retirement community in Largo, FL, is trying to kick out 6 year-old Kimberly Broffman, who lives with her grandparents there. The development’s bylaws state that all residents of the community must be over the age of 55.
Kimberly has nowhere else to go; Jimmy and Judy Stottler are the only parents she’s ever known. I understand that the community has rules, but it’s not that the Stottlers have been stubborn. The couple has tried to sell their house to leave the neighborhood, but nobody’s buying; they’ve lowered the price from $225,000 to $129,000 but can’t get any takers. Maybe it’s because all the neighbors are so unfriendly! It’s one kid, people. Is she really ruining your bridge club and shuffleboard tournaments?
Apparently this debate has been going on for years, and now a judge will decide if the girl must leave. There is a real possibility the girl will end up in foster care. Isn’t that just crazy? Taking a child from her loving family and placing her with strangers, all because of a community age restriction? Do these angry elderlies realize they could be ruining this poor girl’s life? I hope the judge has the child’s best interest at heart.
