"We had an excellent hearing," said Benjamin Taylor, Shanesha Taylor's attorney. "The judge will return the children to Ms. Taylor."
Child Protective Services asked Judge Bradley Astrowski that the hearing be closed to the public because juveniles were involved.
Taylor said Astrowski's ruling was an enormous relief.
"I finally breathed," Taylor said after the 20-minute hearing. "I don't think I breathed for three days before that."
