Johnathan Irish and Stephanie Taylor emerged from a closed family court hearing Thursday afternoon with smiles on their faces and indicated they may be getting back their daughter Cheyenne, whom state officials took from them hours after her birth last week.
Irish said he was instructed to say nothing about the hearing, citing a state confidentiality law, but said: "A picture's worth a thousand words. What's a smile worth?"
All indications were that Irish and Taylor received good news at the hearing.
"I haven't seen you smile in a while," Irish's mother Nancy, who declined to give her last name, said just before embracing her son.
Nancy added: "Justice prevails."
