Theresa Rodriguez’ Story


Theresa Rodriguez was a teen mom who did everything right after DFPS/CPS got involved in her life. Overcoming incredible abuse, the suicide of her fiancé, and her own mental health issues, Theresa graduated, got off Disability, became employed and won her daughter back. Unfortunately, after two jury trials involving six parties, she lost her rights to her son Zachary Cole Jaeckle on a 10-2 split decision by the second jury. This case was appealed to the Supreme Court.
