Child severely injured while in foster care in Ringgold, Ga.

CHATTANOOGA — Jennifer Palmer spent Monday at Erlanger Children's Hospital after a surprise knock at her door early in the morning.

"Police and DFCS lady came to my door, my case worker. She told me she had something bad to tell me about my daughter," Palmer explains. That's how she learned her daughter, Sahara, was severely injured.

It's been a rough year for Palmer and her children. Last February Palmer's then-boyfriend was charged with kidnapping their two kids, 6-year-old Elijah and Sahara who was 1-year-old at the time.
