Yes- the State can file a petition for adjudication related to your new baby based on the history and failure to complete a previously court ordered case plan. If they do file a petition, if you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you. Unless the State pursues up front termination of your parental rights, if the baby is found to be dependent, you will have the opportunity to complete a case plan for reunification.
