Chris and Katie are parents to a 5-year-old and 7-year-old little girl. They are also homeless and addicted to heroin. But, they say that even though they get high multiple times a day, they are good, responsible parents who have never put their daughters in harm’s way.

“I am a great dad,” says Chris.
However, Chris’ sister, Missy, claims the children were severely neglected, alleging neighbors often found them wandering around their apartment complex dirty, hungry and without shoes, inside a dumpster one time and playing by a busy freeway and in vacant buildings. She and her husband, Jason, now have temporary custody of the girls.
Chris and Katie say their daughters were never neglected and they have never put them in harm’s way. “They never went without. They had a roof over their head up until we got evicted,” Chris says. “We do drugs but we would never do them in front of our kids.”
