A sign of the times
Baby Boy Doe is now in the temporary custody of our county child services department. And this Mom wants to go put her name in for adopting the little man.
The judge is waiting to see if the bio mother or father comes forward.
My wild guess is: they won't.
My friend Robin was the social worker at the hospital that morning. I am sure that it was a heart-wrenching experience to know that someone could so casually give a child up like that. And then I am reminded .... so was Ace. Well ok, not in a bathroom at a local park. But he was the product of two teenagers who got together one night and couldn't care for the choice they made. And now I think of this little man ... who will forever be known as the child who was abandoned by his parents in a park.
And maybe it would be a good thing if the little mite wasn't adopted in this area.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
You know it is going to be a good day when....
