March 21, 2011

IN RE F. H., A PERSON COMING UNDER THE JUVENILE COURT LAW.
SACRAMENTO COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES, PLAINTIFF AND RESPONDENT,
v.
A. A., DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT.



Super. Ct. No. JD230082

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Blease, Acting P. J.

In re F.H.

CA3

NOT TO BE PUBLISHED

California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.

The juvenile court assumed jurisdiction over minor F.H. (born August 2009) as a child who was at risk of physical harm or illness from mother A. A.'s failure to protect her, and whose other siblings had been subject to abuse.*fn1 (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 300, subds. (b) & (j) [undesignated section references will be to this code].) It removed the minor from the custody of the parents. It ordered reunification services for father Christopher H., but denied them for A. A. because she had caused the death of another half-sibling through abuse or neglect, reunification services previously had been terminated after she failed to reunify with other half-siblings, and her parental rights over three half-siblings had been terminated. (§ 361.5, subds. (b)(4), (b)(10) & (b)(11).) She appealed from the judgment. (§ 395.) We dismissed her appeal pursuant to In re Phoenix H. (2009) 47 Cal.4th 835.*fn2 (In re F. H. C063573, (Apr. 28, 2010).)

In the meantime, A. A. filed a petition to modify the disposition. (§ 388.) She requested a return of F.H. under a plan of dependent supervision, or alternately the provision of reunification services. The juvenile court denied the petition, finding that there had not been any change in circumstances warranting relief. She appeals only on the issue of the denial of services. We shall affirm the order.

BACKGROUND

Prior dependency proceedings

1998: The juvenile court assumed jurisdiction over a half-sibling born in 1997, based on domestic violence in the home, A. A.'s substance abuse, abuse of an older half-sibling born in 1995, and the death at two months of a half-sibling born in 1998 while in her care. It terminated services after she failed to reunify. It returned him to A. A.'s custody under a plan of dependent supervision in 2000. However, in 2001 the juvenile court placed the minor with relatives appointed as his legal guardians without providing reunification services to A. A., after removing a half-sibling born in 1999 from her custody.

2001: The juvenile court again removed the half-sibling born in 1999 from A. A.'s custody, based on the minor's hospitalization with severe dehydration and hypoglycemia. It denied services to A. A. and terminated her parental rights over the minor in 2002.

2006: The juvenile court assumed jurisdiction over a half-sibling born in 2004 based on abuse and medical neglect of her siblings, domestic violence, and A. A.'s unstable mental health. The juvenile court denied services and terminated parental rights in 2006.

The juvenile court also terminated parental rights in 2006 over the half-sibling born in 1995 without providing services. It had previously terminated services in 1999 and placed him in long-term foster care, but had returned him to ...
