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.
