NC Appeals Court Stays Order Taking Primary Custody of Children Away from Mom with Breast Cancer

In the latest development in a controversial case in which a North Carolina mom with advanced breast cancer lost primary custody of her two children, the state Court of Appeals today issued a temporary stay of that ruling.

It must now decide whether to extend the stay for the entire time that it will take for the case concerning Alaina Giordano, 37, and her estranged husband to be decided, reports the Associated Press.

The two children, an 11-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy, were to have moved to Chicago on Friday to live with their father.
