MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) - A Memphis mother is on a mission to get her children back after her parental rights were stripped away several years ago. The fight for custody comes after one of the children was found chained up and covered in urine inside his adoptive parents' home.

Dionne Robinson officially filed a petition to gain custody of her two biological children. Both are currently in the state's care now that their adoptive parents face charges of child abuse and neglect.

"Everyone deserves a second chance and that's all I want," said Robinson. "Is a second chance with my babies."

On Friday morning, Robinson entered juvenile court for the third time in one week to sit in on a hearing about the future of her biological children.

Five years ago her parental rights were taken away because she was fighting a drug addiction. Now, she wants a second chance.

"It's just an enduring process for me right now," she said.

Robinson's attorney says the process will take time. She is willing to fight to get her rights back, no matter how long it takes.

"The ultimate goal is to get my babies home with me," she said. "Where they can be loved unconditionally like they should be."

The kids' adoptive parents, Kenya and Melvin Bloomingburg, both remain in jail. Both are being represented by different attorneys, who were present in juvenile court.
