I was thinking of this article today after what my friend told me at work today-I just e-mailed the article to him.
My friend told me that his daughter's mother is about 8 months pregnant..(not by him)& this whole time she has been going to this bar everyday, drinking & smoking cigarettes like an idiot. This has been an ongoing story, he would tell me about her, like how she was just going to the Moose club everyday, & taking his daughter, how she was gaining weight & starting to look old from the drinking & smoking, how nasty her house was, how her parents do everything around the house. (she lives w/her parents)
I told him before, he should sue for custody, just over the bar thing, but he didn't really want to rock his little daughter's world, she still loves her Mom.
So anyway, he found this out over the weekend from the sister..The Mom is all stressed out about it, but yet they go to the bar WITH her, afraid that if she doesn't go there, she might do something worse. The girl's best friend is the bartender! I think the father was just someone from another bar, who probably doesn't even know she is pregnant. The sister wants to have her committed, she is doing this on purpose for some reason. He said that someone saw her in the bar bathroom, punching herself in the stomach. She wants to have the baby at the hospital & just walk out & leave it there, something about she thinks she won't get charged for abandonment if it's left in what's considered a "safe place". The sister told him she will have the hospital check for fetal alcohol syndrome. The girl has recently gone to Vegas & drank it up, & is rumored to de doing coke!
What a total peice of human garbage.
My friend said he is going to call a lawyer tonight & start custody proceedings.
All I could think of today was that poor little baby, swimming in a sea of poison & hate.
