ALAMOGORDO - An Alamogordo mother in jeopardy of losing her daughter is turning to a New Mexico organization for help.
Rosa Caje has been fighting a woman named Mary Bruer for custody of her daughter Olivia. Caje and her daughter lived with Bruer for a few months and because of that a court named Bruer the "psychological grandmother." The court then gave Bruer full custody of Olivia despite no state investigation or any apparent wrong-doing on the mother's part.
In December, a court finally ruled there was no reason for Bruer to have custody of Olivia. Bruer turned to Alamogordo Judge William Brogan to reverse the decision, and now Judge Brogan is holding the hearings in secret.
Caje says she can't afford an attorney so she will ask New Mexico Legal Aid for help. They provide free legal aid to some people in New Mexico.
We'll let you know what happens.
