Police said the children, ages 10, 11 and 16 were living alone in a trailer home in Portage, Ind., and their situation only came to light when the 16-year-old son asked for help at school.

The teen wanted to know what to do to fix a broken water pipe. School officials were concerned about the question, so reached out to police.

Thanh Nguyen, 46, was charged with three felony counts of child abandonment and one felony count of drug possession.

The affidavit which alleged that the kids were left alone in the trailer for long periods of time without a working furnace, running water or even a usable bathroom.

The three children were taken to Child Protective Services.

Police said according to the children, they said they hadn’t seen her in sometimes a few days..but at times stretches of several months.”

"Investigators believe the 16-year-old did his best to care for his younger siblings, with some help from a relative who lives in the area, but said they’re not certain when they last had any parental supervision."

WTF is wrong with this "relative" for not reporting this situation? The so called relative should be held accountable as well as the skank mother.

A 46-year-old woman charged with abandoning her three children in a home without running water or a working furnace is seeking visitation rights with the children.

A motion was filed on behalf of Portage resident Thanh Nguyen seeking a modification of the protective order prohibiting her from having contact with her three minor children.

The change is sought in the wake of a fact-finding hearing held April 30 in juvenile court that determined "there has been a substantial and continuing change in the circumstances of the children ... such that a change in custody would be in their best interest," according to the motion filed by attorney Andrew Yoder.

Primary physical custody of the two younger children (ages 11 and 10) was granted to their father, with both parents to share joint legal custody, the motion says.

If the no-contact order is modified or dismissed, Nguyen "shall have parenting time with the children, as agreed to by the parties, at a minimum, pursuant to the Indiana parenting time guidelines," according to the juvenile court order.

A 16-year-old son, who will remain with his stepfather, shall also receive visitation rights with his mother should the protective order be modified or dismissed, according to the juvenile court.
Prosecutors had not yet responded in writing as of Wednesday morning.

The case came to light Feb. 11 after Nguyen's oldest child sought help from school officials for a broken water pipe at their home, according to police.

Police said when they located Nguyen, she said she had been at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Michigan. She denied the claims of her children, telling police, "I come home after they sleep and leave before they get up."

The eldest son told investigators he had been caring for his younger siblings "for as long as he can remember," according to the police report. "He added he cooks their meals, cleans the house and makes sure they get all of their chores/homework done."

The boy said his father was away on vacation in California, and his mother prohibits the children from contacting him, police said.

Nguyen reportedly begged police to let her go home when first called in for questioning.
"I love my kids," she was quoted by police as yelling. "They can't go to foster care."

Why the hell should she get visitation rights since she's an unfit mother who willfully abandoned those kids in favor of gambling at the casino? Fuck her. Shovel a shitload of poker chips down her gullet, several dice up her nose and decks of cards up her ass.
