Father Denied Free Access - Katie's Heart Broken

Edward was denied access to stay with his daughter in the hospital by CPS worker Stella Klein. He was allowed about 3 hours on Thursday evening to be with Katie under CPS supervision and he was told what he could and could not talk about with Katie. Michele stayed by Katie's side the whole time and overnight. Security Guards followed Edward and Michele everywhere they went in the hospital. Edward was escorted out of the hospital and was told he could see Katie the next morning at 8 am with CPS, Stella Klein, present. Edward was down in the hospital lobby at 6 am waiting to see Katie. CPS worker Stella Klein showed up late at 8:35 am even though she was called before 8 am by security and advised that Edward was waiting and she replied to security that "she was just around the corner". She knew Edward had a 10 o'clock flight that morning. So Edward had to leave at 8:55 and took a cab to the airport. Edward had less than 20 minutes to spend with his daughter Friday. Katie was heart broken.
