After almost two months of waiting, the moment Steve and Maria Green have hoped for is finally happening: their now 8-month-old daughter, Bree, is coming home.

"Bree will be in her own bed tonight, and we will be able to read to her tonight and hold her and love her," Steve Green

Friday after Ingham County court a compromise was struck with Child Protective Services that prevented a trial and granted the Green's custody of their daughter. The parents agreed to a 30-day period of in-home parenting sessions and a review in January.

"As long as we can be reasonable, and they can be reasonable, then this will all go away," Maria Green says.

Bree was removed from the home after a court referee deemed the home too dangerous, believing the marijuana grown inside to treat Steve's multiple sclerosis promoted theft. The Green's have a license to grow and use medical marijuana.
