Syesha Mercado now has both of her children back in her arms.
Following an eventful ordeal, the American Idol alum and her partner, Tyron Deener, have regained custody of their son, Amen’Ra.
Amen’Ra had been taken and put in foster care in February by CPS, after the couple took him to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla., because he was struggling to transition from breast milk to solid foods.
It was there that the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said hospital staff reported the child was suffering from malnutrition, and it was the reason for him to be taken from them.
Syesha shared the news of Amen’Ra‘s return to them, with the happy young boy in a car seat.
“AMEN’RA IS OFFICIALLY HOME!!!” she captioned, and added that they are required to undergo six months of supervision by the Department of Children and Families. “Every person that has been involved in this process — in keeping our son away from us — all those individuals will be held accountable.”
Syesha and Tyron‘s newborn daughter, Ast, had been taken away from them during a roadside welfare check in August. She was returned to the couple days later.
Both children were placed in the care of an estranged relative with Syesha and Tyron getting supervised visits.
