A single mom in North Carolina is facing charges after accusations that she abandoned her two children on the side of the road without any supervision.

On October 2, 38-year-old Jennifer Westfall reportedly became so exhausted that she allegedly drove her two children to a location away from home and left them on the side of the road. Westfall is also being accused of having driven away from the spot before making sure that the youngsters, who are age 19 months and 9-years-old, were in the care of someone responsible.

A woman allegedly found the kids roadside without a guardian and took them to a nearby school where they notified CPS of the situation.

On the afternoon of May 29, a boy in foster care was allegedly kidnapped from his elementary school by his biological mother when she left the campus with him against a court order prohibiting her from doing so.

Dylan Kostenko, an 8-year-old student at Towne Elementary School in Carson, lives in foster care since he was removed from his mother’s custody in May 2017.

Dylan’s biological mother, 29-year-old Dariia Kostenko, was granted monitored visits with her son, but she does not have permission to retrieve him from school.
