I cannot stop my heart from aching for a poor little baby in the intensive care unit right now. She was born to a heroine addict mother. (I used to be friends with her & was invited to the baby shower) She tried to have an abortion & every time she saved up the $$ she spent it on drugs. (I heard 2nd hand from someone else) I have 2 children myself & just cannot image a child without stability & love. Apparently her mother is going to step in with children's services. Her mother is not the responsible type to say the least. She isn't an addict, but lives an extremely unstable lifestyle. I just wish there was something I could do. I wish I could give that baby the love it deserves. Does anyone have advice? I don't think I would qualify for the foster parent program. If the mother agreed to it could she sign over custody to me without involving courts & such?
