Texas says all sect children are back with parents

Associated Press/June 4, 2008

San Angelo, Texas - All the children taken from a polygamist group's Texas ranch are now back with their parents.

Child welfare officials said Wednesday that all 440 have been picked up since a judge ordered their return.

It took parents several days to travel to foster facilities across the state to pick up the children.

It's not clear how many children will return to the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Eldorado (ehl-duh-RAY'-doh).

Judge Barbara Walther ordered their return after the Texas Supreme Court said the state child welfare agency overreached by removing them two months ago.
