A very tragic case. Especially in this case it is very important to keep the the child's best interest in mind; even above the potential rights of a disabled person. I think if you ask what is best for the child in this case, the answer is very clear. Every effort should be made though that the parent who does not get custody is able to see the child very frequently.

Love is an interesting thing and life is mysterious. Don't try to put them in a box and say it has to be this way or that way.

I feel that the baby is in a box. At 6 mos old he can do more than the Mom. Caretakers job is to care for the Mom. Her Mom & brother aren't guaranteed to be around forever. It would take 3 people and Van just to take baby to the park. Mom should play a big role but custody? God Bless them all.
