The New Jersey parents who gave their three children Nazi-inspired names, may be reunited with little Adolf Hitler and his sisters, soon.
Deborah and Heath Campbell of Holland Township were in Family Court in Hunterdon County on Thursday.
Neither parent would answer questions as they left court Thursday afternoon, but the Campbell's lawyer, Pasquale Giannetta, said he was "pretty confident" the children will be reunited with their parents.
The couple made headlines in December when a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake with the name of their three-year-old son, Adolf Hitler Campbell.
The couple demanded an apology, the Express-Times wrote about it and the story made headlines around the world.
A lot of the sentiment directed at the parents was negative. They even got death threats. They tried to set the record straight by explaining how they came up with names from baby books they had.
In January, New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services removed Adolf and his younger sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell from their home.
Authorities never explained exactly why the children were removed because they are not allowed to talk about cases that involve minors.
The officer who showed up at the home that night as an escort said he'd known the Campbells for awhile and had no reason to believe there had been any sort of abuse or neglect in the home.
Heath Campbell believes his kids were taken away because of the negative publicity.
Hitler's Grammy Drunk During Cop Stop, Says Mom

Little Adolf Hitler Campbell’s parents are already in the midst of a custody battle. And now they may have even more trouble on their hands, because grandma was sauced in the backseat of their car, according to Adolf’s mother.
Deborah Campbell, Adolf's mom, claims the couple was mistreated by Raritan Township police during a traffic stop.
With husband Heath at the wheel and her mother in the backseat, Deborah was headed to family court Jan. 13, when they were pulled over by police at around 10 a.m.
Deborah claimed police referred to him as “the Nazi guy” and quizzed him about his tattoos, one of which is a swastika, according to the Express-Times. She says they also made Heath take a sobriety test after allegedly smelling alcohol in the car.
But, it was grandma drunk in the backseat, not Heath, Deborah said. She was headed to court with the couple in hopes the three children would be released to her if the parents could not gain custody.
Lt. Kevin Donovan of the Raritan Township Police Department confirmed with Jim Deegan of the Express-Times, that the Campbell’s were pulled over and ticketed for not making necessary repairs to the car deemed by a prior state inspection.
Lt. Donovan did not comment on the alleged mistreatment of the couple, and said there was no record of a sobriety test performed.
A formal complaint with the police department has not been filed. But, a complaint form was requested by Heath and has been mailed to his home, Lt. Donovan said.
Officials from the N.J. Division of Youth and Family Services took the children -- Adolf Hitler Campbell, 3, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 1, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will turn 1 in April – from the Campbell’s home in Milford last Tuesday, saying only that they felt the children were in danger.
Deborah said officials have yet to tell her and her husband exactly why the children were removed. But Campbell suspects it has something to do with the names they bestowed upon their kids.
"The names, I believe are the problems. But they just don’t want to come out and say that,” Campbell said.
The couple has defended the names of their children saying they reserve the right to name the kids whatever they like.
