In re N.V., D057087, concerned a challenge to the juvenile court's order placing petitioner's children in foster care, in dependency proceedings involving petitioner's two minor children.  In affirming the juvenile court's order placing petitioner's children in foster care, the court held that, although the court abused its discretion by excluding evidence concerning the agency's reasons for refusing to approve the grandmother's home, there was no miscarriage of justice as the grandmother was living in a new home that had not been physically inspected, and as such, the children could not have been placed with her regardless of her child abuse history.
