Vigil to return 9-year-old Sonya Hodgin home

Posted: Updated:

The Dickson community came together to pray for a family caught in the middle of a child custody case.

Folks flocked to Holland Park this evening, to pray for the return of 9-year-old Sonya Hodgin. A court recently removed her from her Dickson County foster parents, who have been caring for her since she was a baby.

An appeals court overturned the family's adoption, saying the parental rights of her biological father were illegally terminated.

Sonya is now back in the care of her father, who was in prison for most of his life.
