They likely got fed some emotional stories from EJ as well.
But in the end, we have the police being called on EJ for busting up the apartment, taking a knife to LM's clothes and Gabriel's bed, trying to hand off the her baby to a couple of folks she met at an airport (or online or something), fleeing with the baby, claiming to have killed the baby, not offering up where the baby is, etc... meanwhile, Logan has kept his cool, refused to sign away his son, filed for custody, did all the right things, etc...
I know that I can be fooled, but I just can't see EJ as the caring mom here, and i don't see Logan as having done anything wrong, at least not on record (regarding this specific case that is, I don't know anything about his life prior to this)
I think LE should subpoena the Smith's bank accounts immediately to see if a large amount of money has been recently deposited. I am now thinking that a baby selling scheme might be in operation. Gabriel passed on by mom to someone the Smith's have found. Mom doing all the work physically transferring Gabriel to them, with the Smith's pocketing most of the proceeds. Very young inexperienced desperate mom would think a small amount of money is a windfall. The Smith's first scheme fell apart when Logan made a stink. They might have never intended to adopt Gabriel to start with, but sell him from the start for a tidy amount of money. They are now all over television "assisting" in Gabriel's recovery in an attempt to CMA. Mom might think that if she keeps her mouth shut she will be released and still be able to collect on the money. If I were LE, I would investigate this couple very closely.
Sorry to get OT

My posts are my opinion only.....
If you are talking about EJ going to TN, it is my understand that she has never visited that state and she has no connections there.
I guess they have people in SA that last saw them at the park.
also, I believe that one can have PPD after they have their first child. (I could be wrong about that)

They're kind of famous within Southern Gospel musical circles. I wonder if Tammi was trying to find some sort of commonality with the other person, and the other person wasn't familiar with that particular musical genre? Or maybe Tammi was trying to name-drop and didn't realize that the Crabbs aren't as famous as she thought?
It was a response to TS statingHere is the screenshot:At 4:20pm on November 25, 2008, Ashley Mills said… I'm not sure what and Al or Ts is could you give me more information on that? and I live an hour south of Lexington in a small town called London. I know a husband and wife with the last name Crabb Sandy & Joel ....he is a pastor....great family!
LE should check to see if the Crabb's ever adopted a baby via TS.

Sorry, I was confused about this:

Are you willing to do a TS? What state do you live in? We have been looking for a while!!! My 3 year old daughter is getting very antsy wondering when her new baby sister or brother will come, lol.....I do missions in Africa but they won't let anyone outside africa to adopt! So we are going the surrogate route since I had an emergancy hysterioectomy about 10 years ago (age 26). Please email or call us at (623) 687-1887 firstname.lastname@example.org
I thought Tammi was looking for someone else, but that's not the case. The significant this about this post (it was on here before) is that the girl wanting to be a surrogate is still in high school and many people on there are upset that anyone would be encouraging her (such as Tammi)
From my understanding of a surrogate - (1) they take a sample from the man and put it in the dish with an egg from the woman, and then implant the fertilized egg into the surrogate. Or (2), they take the sample from the man and artificially inseminate (hopefully) the surrogate.
TPS has stated that she had a hysterectomy 10 years ago so she wouldn't have any eggs to implant, so #1 is out. And that comment "we did some insems" hmmmmm.
So, is TPS on this site to get her OWN baby, because I thought that was their intention at the beginning of the saga, or is she just brokering deals?
And if she is just brokering deals, what really was her intention with Gabriel? Were they planning (as I have thought) to raise him in their home, or would he have been "sold" to someone else?
Sorry to sound so dim, but this is so outrageous I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it --

Do you mean that LE should investigate the musical Crabb family that TS mentioned, or the Pastor Crabb that other person mentioned? Btw, here's why I think Tammi was trying to either name drop or find something in common with the potential surrogate:

Where at in Kentucky? We moved from Nashvill,Tn to Arizona a year and a half ago. We know a lot of people in Kentucky. Have you heard of The Crabb Family? They are a Southern Gospel group out of KY. Are you willing to be AI and do a TS? Tammi

They might be related, but not part of the group. That's cool! Anyway TS means Traditional Surrogate. Meaning you are using your egg and being (AI) artificially insiminated. Hope that helps!
