Episode 88: Judah Morgan (Part 2)

Last week, I told you the story of Judah Morgan, a bright, loving four-year-old boy with blond curls, brown eyes, and a disarmingly sweet smile, who was removed in April 2021 from the loving foster family who cared for him for most of his life and placed back in the home of his biological parents, Mary Yoder and Alan Morgan. Six months later, Judah was dead, and Mary and Alan were charged with his abuse, torture, and murder. 

In this episode, you’ll hear my conversation with Judah’s foster mom, Jenna Hullett, who is already fighting to change laws to protect other kids like the little boy she loved like her own.

This is part 2 of the infuriating story of Judah Morgan.

Episode 87: Judah Morgan (Part 1)

Little Judah Morgan spent almost the entirety of his four years in the loving, stable foster home of his second-cousin, Jenna Hullett, and her family. When Indiana DCS essentially forgot to terminate the rights of his biological parents, Judah was returned to the custody of his mother, Mary Yoder, and his father, Alan Morgan. Six months later, Judah was dead.

This is the story of a joyful, jubilant little boy with warm brown eyes, curly blond hair, and adorably pinchable cheeks who loved singing and dancing, learning, and especially spending time with the family who loved him. It’s also the story of yet another child protection agency yet again failing a child with fatal and undeniably preventable results.

In part 2 next week, you’ll hear my conversation with Judah’s foster mom, Jenna, who is already fighting to change laws to protect other kids like the little boy she loved like her own.

This is part 1 of the infuriating story of Judah Morgan.
