    ....and the guy's name was Pigge.

    But at least he did the right thing and turned the baby into a representative with the Mom's phone # attached. He was even late going to work.

    I hope this poor baby will have a good life. Prayers.....

    I am sure CPS will just give the child right back. So I am not optimistic about "good life."
    Just my opinion

    The man wrote down a phone number and handed it to her and told her she dropped a woman off at the store and had to leave to go to work.

    I was a caseworker for 25 years with my state's DHHS. This reminds me of a similar situation I encountered. One of my clients, a woman in her 30's was out on bond awaiting sentencing for drug distribution. She had a 12 year old daughter and astounded me when she said when she went to prison she planned to leave her to live with the woman's boyfriend (unrelated to the girl of course). On questioning she admitted she had just met him on line and knew him only a couple of weeks but he 'seems like a real nice guy.'

    Of course I told her I was reporting this to CPS- she couldn't seem to understand why, no matter how I tried to explain, the capacity to understand wasn't inside her head. I never knew what happened but I did the right thing. I think.

    Odd how a mother's protection instinct is supposed to be hot wired into us as a species and how some are just immune to it.

    I wish there was a test to pass before they let you leave the hospital with the new baby. I see cases like this and my heart breaks for my son & DIL, who due to a medical issue, can't get pregnant, and would be good loving parents. Thet both have good jobs, own a home, and are truly good people.
    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.
