You need to call CPS now! That mother has abandoned her child! Did you happen to take pics of the baby before she was cleaned up?

She didn't abandon ,I asked her for the child , she just doesn't know me that well..I just font want to give her back .I have for children of my own.I can't afford another child but .I know they will take her a way from her mother.I'm very close to calling Cps ..and maybe i should have called on day one..but day one is when she has been in my care ..she is suppose to come get her Friday..i need to figure out what to do before then..meaning me or foster home ..

You need to call CPS and talk to them.  If the mother takes this poor child probably will end up in the same condition she was in the day her mother left you with her.

K lynch , unfortunately i didnt take pictures.My husband asked the same thing..I am regretting it now ..i guess i went into panic mode as soon as the woman left my house ..and gave her a bath .this may sound bad but i couldn't Bare the smell ..the PR thing was screaming in pain from the vows milk ..i knew she couldn't poop ..this precious child hasnt cried a bit.. And us completely comfortable here ..I just don't want to hand her back .out would make me just add much to blame..but my husband i know will not let me keep her ..we have our hands full as it is..and finances arent all that well..i spent close to 70 bucks just for the babies food ,diapers ,medicine ,ointment ,wipes .etc I'm wondering I could get a little assistance from like welfare if i was to keep her.
