WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Sedgwick County District Court judge's ruling in a fight over a 2-year-old girl has left the girl's future undecided.

Judge Robb Rumsey ruled Monday that the girl's 67-year-old great-grandmother is not fit to adopt the girl, who has been in a Wichita foster home since shortly after she was born.

But Rumsey's ruling also denied a request by the girl's foster parents to adopt the child, although she will stay in their home for now.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1fuoaIE ) the Kansas Department of Children and Families will retain custody of the child until an adoptive family is found.

Rumsey said DCF should consider the foster parents, the paternal great-uncle and other family and nonfamily members as possibilities for adoption. The great-uncle has adopted the girl's three older sisters.
