The woman and her DH got into a fight, both were arrested but the mom was able to bail herself out again right away for $200.00 - thankfully the baby was ok. The mom called everyone she knew (according to the police sgt I talked to) and had only one person left to call for help. Me. She was afraid I was mad at her so she asked the sgt to call me. He explained the situation and told me she's been on the phone for over an hour trying to find someone to help her. She and the baby had no where to go. I made sure the DH was going to be staying in jail and he is - probably 6 mos at least but more likely 12 mos. I picked up this girl and her baby - but I made it clear that she had to be working and looking for an apt. She got one today and has been picking up more hours. She asked to be put on the night shift to make $2 more an hour. I told her I will watch the baby for free for now - I don't want her going back to him thinking she
she needs to prioritize and make sure that everything she does is for her child well being and hers as well...cuz he will get out and he knows how to pull her back in...she lost something great due to him and you know what i am talking about...i think things DO NOT happen over night but i think the path does become a little more clear...this is not an easy road she has...so just by her doing a few things here and there YOU DON'T LET YOUR GUARDS DOWN... remember PEOPLE CHANGE BUT PEOPLE MANIPULATE AS WELL...she needs somebody and she knows how you are...you stick to your rules and KEEP YOUR GUARDS UP AT ALL TIMES MAMA...wish you the best...

you know your doing an amazing job...you have a heart of gold...a lot of times women live with an abuser and have been torn and by the time his not in the picture due to whatever reason this women still live by the hell they was put threw...she needs to built a support system/group for herself so that she can be strong and continue to stay strong... verbal abuse is no deferent from physical...words hurt as much as hits...
That's for you, and her! That's so good to hear! I hope she sticks with it, and doesn't fall back into a trap with him. But it sounds like she's got a really good support system with you and your DH, so hopefully that won't happen.
