How can I get my son back with me?

My husband and I decided to move from Maryland down to Louisiana due to a transfer of my job (more hours, better activities down here, etc.). We left our 9 yr old and 5 yr old with my parents in Maryland, just until we got settled in, so they didn't have to go through a harsh move and then we were going back up during the Christmas vacation and bringing them down with us. Yesterday was our youngest sons birthday party and we were surprised to learn that our son was beaten to the ground by two little girls at his own party. He wasn't hurt and when I talked to him, he seemed just fine. Then, last night I got a phone call from my dad telling me they were at the hospital because they think that he took one of my dads blood pressure pills. Being 1200 miles away, I want to freak. Now I am trying to get my youngest down with us and have no money to. Any advice?

  • all I can think of is to go to those travel sites on-line and try to get as cheap of a rate as possible to go get them. Can you charge the tickets? Can you take out a loan or since its an emergency go to a pay day loan and get air fare that way. sorry what a horrible mess for you and your boys

  • It is driving my crazy. Those boys are my life. The ONLY reason why we left them with my parents is because we didn't want them to struggle or have to go through that long haul. My parents should have been more responsible. I know accidents happen but come on. This never would have happened if I just brought them down with us.

  • If you can't afford to fly, take the greyhound bus up there, and bring him back with you.

  • Is it safe enough to put a 10 yr old and 5 yr old on a 2 hour flight alone? I am so scared that something will happen to them.

  • Look up everything
